Fight For Your Families

Fight for your families.

After I looked things over, I stood up and said to the nobles, the officials and the rest of the people, ‘Don’t be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your families, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your homes.'” (Nehemiah 4:14) NIRV

God has always been, and He is still in the business of keeping families together. His strategy of occupying and having dominion is mirrored through His creation of Adam and Eve and the subsequent mandate he gave them.

In our scriptures for today, Nehemiah reminded the surviving Israelites that the challenge to repossess and rebuild Jerusalem was not just about the individual but also for the survival of the family together.

When Moses initially approached Pharaoh to let the Israelites go and worship God, he told him to go with the men and leave the women and the children behind. However, Moses said NO. It has to be everybody together.

The world tends to celebrate and isolate as successful the single man or woman and sometimes totally “forgetting” that the ideal successful man has a successful woman behind him and vice versa the successful woman has a man beside her.

In the kingdom business Apostle, Paul told the jailer “you and your household will be saved.” (Acts 16:31) 

How are you doing today in your life’s assignments? 

Remember it’s not solely about you alone. 

Don’t be like King Hezekiah that heard the judgment of God that will happen after his death.      

“So Hezekiah said to Isaiah, “The word of the LORD which you have spoken is good!” For he said, “Will there not be peace and truth at least in my days?” 2 Kings 20: 19  (NKJV)

Because it was not going to happen in his time, it was okay for him for the bad judgment to occur during his time. He did not intercede for the next generation.

What legacy are you bequeathing the next generation?

    It’s about your families, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your homes.

“I alone” is not the Biblical concept. 

Fight for your families.
