Praise and Worship
In the absence of melody, you will realize that the cultivation of a spirit filled atmosphere is centered around words. We are privileged to have praise and worship as another medium through which we maintain a Spirit filled atmosphere. What is common to praise and worship is the use of words. Therefore, praise and worship to our Father is not limited to songs, however, it does include songs. When we appreciate God for who He is to us and what He does for us, it is a part of our worship and praise to Him. When it comes to praise and worship, we are not just talking about joyful sounds which is not wrong in itself, however, we are talking about meaningful words spoken for the purpose of expressing praise and worship.
What you permit or do not permit in your home environment matters and should be in line with your praise and worship unto Him.
When it comes to family time. Make it mandatory. Every family should schedule such that you have a time when everyone gathers and the word is thought. It is imperative to know the state of your flocks. Do not live in a home such that no one is seen and every conversation seems to happen over the phone only. No. No. No.
I can understand the challenges involved in some homes, however, I am sure there is a way that once a week the family can gather to pray, share the word God and update each other about themselves.
How to make these truths your reality
Matthew 8:8 (KJV)
“…Speak the word only…”
There is only one requirement to qualify as one with great faith. When you speak the word only just like the centurion did. The spiritual atmosphere of your home will only become your reality through faith. Amen.
Family, it’s about advancing the Kingdom of God even in our homes. Remember, it’s all about relationships. Exercise great faith by speaking the word only and rejoice over the outcome. From your home will come nation builders, kingdom giants, generational pacesetters, role models, and pioneers. Remember, the model home is not a perfect home; it is an excellent home!
