Have you made the necessary preparations, so that your family and household will be able to prosper both physically, but most importantly spiritually, after you die? What are you doing right now to make sure your house prospers to the next generation? - Genesis 18:17-19
Are you teaching your household (children) how to live by the precepts and commandments of the Lord? Are you exhibiting by your priorities and life choices the path your family should follow? How much time are you devoting to your household to teaching them the way of the Lord - Deuteronomy 6:4-9; Ephesians 6:4
You must set your house in order and be set to defend it, because the rulers of darkness in this world (the devil), are bombarding the family (marriage) with continual attacks to destroy Godís Divine plan for the family - Ephesians 6:10-18
How many men has the devil convinced to abandon the leadership role as husbands, and fathers in the home? How many women has the devil convinced to forsake their responsibilities in the home? How many parents has the devil convinced to neglect to discipline their children? - Colossians 3:17-21
In 2 Kings 20:1-11 and Isaiah 38:1-9, when the prophet Isaiah told King Hezekiah to set his house in order because he was going to die and not live, King Hezekiah prayed to God and wept sore. God heard his prayer, healed him, added 15 years to his life and delivered him and the city from the king of Assyria. As a sign God would do this, God made the Sun dial go backward 10 degrees.
If you need to set your house in order, why not pray to God, ask Him to heal you and deliver you from the enemy? - James 5:16
