Text: Psalm 127-128
Almost everyone works hard for a successful family future. But we all get tired, and we wonder when the Lord will bless us. But in His perfect timing, He builds families and the houses that they live in. Should we work hard and plan? Yes! But overwork, worry, and fear are wrong when they steal the joy and energy that we should be using to build our families for Christ’s Glory. Our children are a blessing, and that’s exactly why we present them to the Lord in worship. By giving them back to God, we fully receive them from Him and enjoy them to a greater blessing. Our loving
heavenly Father is in charge of our prosperity and our family. So if you are overstressed from too much work or worry, pray that the Lord will give you a greater sense of His provision today! Your children are a gift for joy, not anxiety!
Meditate on verse 127:1 and 128:1. What is God teaching you in these verses? How are you going to apply 128:1 to your life?
Our loving heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, I pray for Your ever constant presence and guidance in my walk in Your ways, assured of Your benevolence in provision for me and my family. Amen.
