The Expansion of Our Family Lives
We’re Asking God to Grow Our Families!
Read: Ephesians 5:22 – 6:9
Believe: Our family relationships are the FOUNDATIONAL VIDEO of the reality of our faith. (In other words, if we cannot do it at home, we simply cannot do faith in Jesus!)
Ask: So, ask God these three questions and listen throughout your day for His responses:
• (If you are married) Believing what you have instructed me to do today from Your Word, how does my role with my spouse match the commands I’ve read, Lord? (If you are single) Believing what you have instructed me to do today from Your Word, how are you strengthening the marriages around you at this moment?
• (If you are married) Trusting God’s Wisdom in the words I have read today, where do I need to increase the effectiveness of my marriage role with my spouse and how? (If you are single) Trusting God’s Wisdom in the words I have read today, where can I increase my encouragements and assistance to the married couples around me at this time?
• (If you a child and your parents are still alive) Seeking to live out the will of God that I have read through today, how will I bring honor to my parents so that others can see and glorify God? (If you are older, married, and are seeking children of your own) Seeking to live out the will of God that I have read through today, I seek Your fruitfulness over our marriage. Multiply us and give us all the children You desire for our family. (If you are older, married, and have children of your own) Seeking to live out the will of God that I have read through today, how will I bring my children up in the fear of the Lord without exasperating them in the process?
Pray … for a God-sized expansion of God’s power and ability in your family life with these words … “Powerful God, in my family life, may I exude the love of Jesus to everyone there, becoming a Live Video of Your presence for everyone on Planet Earth. My deepest desire is to expand Your goodness into more and more homes by my godly example set by King Jesus! For Your glory in my story in 2020: Our Year of Expansion!”
Be Specific: Now, pour out your heart to God for the things you are praying and fasting for. as it pertains to your family, ESPECIALLY asking God to answer the three questions above.
A Year of Expansion!
