Are you just hoping you can continue what you’re doing and have everything turn out for the best? Do you feel you’ve done all you can do, that your marriage is a quiet companionship, everything is OK because none of your children are in major trouble, and besides, you’re just too busy to do anything about whatever might be wrong? Well, you’re shooting craps. You’ve lost the war that’s being waged against you, and you don’t even know it.
Most men - even those who appear successful - live lives that have little to do with the life God has planned for them. God’s purposes for marriage and raising children are far different than the accepted norm. Even His church has normalized what family guidelines are all about. Although there are many bright spots within the church - families who shine with the light and life of Christ, few can be held up as God-like examples to others. In God’s economy, when it comes to family, good is not good enough. God is searching for examples He can use, examples of the image of the relationship between Christ and His Church.
Now is not the time to give up. Now is the time to repent of what is, and submit to the power of God to make the changes needed to become all that you and your family can be in Christ. God is waiting for His men to deny the plans the world has for families, and say “yes” to His plans. What do you say we go for it? Let’s stop hovering around the “good enough” and get all the way into “tell me how deep you want me to go, Lord.”
