PSALM 127:1

One of God’s agenda in these last days is to raise an end-time army that will declare His glory to the world.
‘But [the time is coming when] the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea’. Habakkuk 2:14 (Amp).
If the Body of Christ is going to play a strategic role in the manifestation of God’s glory in the latter days, there is need to raise godly families or homes.
Whether you are married, single or you still live with your parents, you have a role to play in the building of a godly home (Prov. 22:6; Eph. 6:1-4).

How to secure God’s presence in your home
1. Start with God, the ultimate Builder
Every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God (Heb. 3:4).
Discover and yield to His will, plans and purpose. Submit yourself to God. Give your life to Jesus.
2. Follow the divine order (1 Cor. 11:3; Ephesians 6:22-33)
Wives must be submissive to their husbands as unto the Lord, while husbands must love their wives as Christ loved the church and gave Himself for her…
3. Be firmly rooted in the Word of God
Allow the Word of God to build you up, so that you can take your place (Col. 3:16; Psalm 119:11). Allow the Word of God to brood over you, let Him perfect His work in you from within (Rom. 12:2).
4. Build a family altar in your home (Gen. 26:25)
Fellowship with your household regularly before the Lord, in prayer, praise, worship and the study of God’s Word. Constant fellowship within the family guarantees God’s abiding presence in a Christian home.
5. The fear of the Lord (Psalm 128:1-6)
Take heed! Whatever you do, do it as unto the Lord, because you will surely give account to the Lord on how you handled your marriage.
6. Groom your children on how to live a godly and responsible life
Train them up in the way of the Lord (Prov. 22:6; 2 Tim. 3:15).
The Bible says they are like arrows in the hand of a warrior…. (Psalm 27:4-6).
7. Effective communication, agreement and bonding must increase between husband and wife (Amos 3:3)
You must leave to cleave…(Gen. 2:24; Matt. 19:5; Mark 10:7; Eph. 5:31)
Your spouse should be your best friend and confidant.
Your agreement and unity of purpose (oneness) will help the family to fulfil God’s purpose on earth.

May God’s presence never depart from our homes. And may the Lord enable us to build a glorious family that will reveal God’s glory on earth (Gen. 18:17-19).
