The Bible says, “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and He delights in his way” (Psalm 37:23).
We read about a Roman army officer called Cornelius in the Bible (Acts Chapter 10). Even though he was in a high position, he was humble and God-fearing. According to the verse, “…The Lord has set apart the godly for himself” (Psalm 4:3), God chose him for Himself since he loved Him wholeheartedly.
The Scripture says, “Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised” (Proverbs 31:30). Perhaps you may be worried that you don’t have beauty or fame. All of these are the things sought by the world! But the Lord seeks a God-fearing family. Maybe you alone have experienced the love of God in your family. Yet earnestly plead with Him saying, “Lord Jesus, I love You; I want to live a life pleasing to You; make even my family pleasing to You.” The Lord who hears prayers will surely answer your prayer.
In Proverbs 8:17 we read, “…Those who seek Me find Me.”
In our family, my father-in-law would spread the mat on the floor exactly at 6 O’ clock in the morning and start singing the Tamil song ‘Intraithinam Unnarul Eehuvai Yesu Naadha” (Give Your grace Today Jesus my Lord). All of us would hastily wake up out of fear for him and run to attend the family prayer.
You too ought to seek God as a family. Then He will come and abide in your home and fill you with His grace and presence. He will be at your right hand and be a help to you (Psalm 16:8). He will keep you and your family safe (Psalm 91:1,15).
Seek God through prayer and Bible reading. Then you will experience His matchless love. When you abide in His love, He shall be Your eternal refuge; His love will uphold you.
Loving Lord Jesus,
I love You wholeheartedly and seek You earnestly. I want to lead a Godly life pleasing You in everything I do. Please help me to experience Your matchless love. Let Your love uphold me at all times.
In Your matchless name I pray,
