*BUILDING A GODLY HOME*
Proverbs 24:3-4 “Through wisdom is an house built; and by understanding it is established: And by knowledge shall the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches.
Many singles desire a marriage but some are yet to understand that it’s not just about having a marriage but having one built on *THE SOLID ROCK*
Building of something is a gradual process and stage.
The structure of a house isn’t be built in a day or built anyhow. There is the necessity for planning and structuring by an architect before it’s done.
*The house in the scripture above illustrates lives, a family and a home. A family consists of lives, and a home consists of a family.*
To have a godly home, individual lives must first be broken down and rebuilt by Christ; the cornerstone, then a family can be built which then leads to a home.
Right from your courtship, start making God the centre of your relationship, then building a godly home would be easy. Don’t say, “Let’s enjoy our lives doing this courtship and when we get marry we would involve God”,how difficult would it be?.
*Start making Him the centre of your relationship now, so that He would still be the centre even thereafter*
Proverbs 24:27 : “Prepare thy work without, and make it fit for thyself in the field; and afterwards build thine house”.
There is always a preparation that is made before a house is built.
*A field is prepared by you through prayer, then your home is built by God*
Why is it that divorce, unhappiness, hatred have dominated Christian homes? , because there is the lack of godly wisdom, knowledge and understanding in it to guide them well, and also neglecting the place of prayer.
Hebrews 3:4 “For every house is builded by some man; *but he that built all things is God*”
*Until GOD becomes the architect of your home you can’t have a GODly home.*
*The UNDERSTANDING of God’s words in building your home, understand your spouse, children and your in-laws*
*The KNOWLEDGE of how strong prayers can be and the knowledge of the purpose for the creation of your home*
*The WISDOM to handle situations; for every marriage will surely have it own challenge*
-Please for singles and those in a relationship allow the builder of all things build your home.
-For those whose home is at the edge of breaking, God the greatest architect can still restructure your home; settle it in the place of prayer.
-For those divorced, God of all impossibilities can still work things out if you truly desire a *godly home*
