Unity is Strength

For a family to be healthy, the relationship between husband and wife should be in unison with the Lord Jesus Christ.  The Bible says in Ecclesiastes 4:12, “A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.”  Unfortunately, nowadays we see strife in most of the families.  If you are suffering from separation, here is a good news for you. God promises, “I will give them one heart and one purpose: to worship me forever, for their own good and for the good of all their descendants” (Jeremiah 32:39).  Take this promise to your heart and insult the devil’s plans of discord and disarray.

A few years ago, there was a couple who never knew anything about the Lord Jesus Christ.  They often had strife among themselves for various reasons.  The husband had to maintain his family with his income alone.  At that juncture, he lost his job for which he unreasonably blamed his wife.  This plunged her in deeper anguish. There was no peace in their home. One day, as she was surfing the TV channels, suddenly she saw a couple on television holding their hands and praying and this attracted her. It happened to be Jesus Calls TV program and the couple were my wife and me! As she continued watching, she heard me say, “As my wife and I hold hands, you husband and wife wherever you are, hold your hands. I am going to pray right now that God will heal your home, heal your marriage and He will take over your life.” Exactly at that moment, her husband walked in and she called him to join in prayer with her.  He too obeyed her for the very first time in his life and they both held their hands together in prayer. And as we both were praying fervently in the program, that man began to shout and scream saying, “Somebody is walking into our home, He is full of brightness, He has a white robe, He is coming nearer and nearer to us.”  Saying so, he fell down. When he got up, a great peace engulfed his heart. Jesus had touched them and changed their hearts. On a later day, they came to Jesus Calls Prayer Tower seeking prayers.  The man got a job in a foreign country.  They began to prosper and God blessed their children. 
Yes, when the true light shines in a person’s life, darkness has to flee. Every plan of the devil to scatter your family will retreat, in His presence.  Be like – minded, united in all matters (Philipp.2:2).Beloved, without abiding in Him, you cannot bear good fruits.  Today, you can call Jesus to be the head of your family and experience an abundance of joy and peace of His kingdom! 
Dear Lord,
As I reflect upon Your promise to us, to give us one heart and one purpose, I too yearn for the same. I regret for the crevices that I allowed in my family that gave place for the devil to take control.  Help me not to stray away Your purpose for my family.  Give us oneness of heart and action for Your glory.  In Jesus’ name I pray,
