There is no nation that the LORD almighty is not particular about whether they are defiant to His will or operating in the confine of the same. If the earth is the LORD’s and its fullness thereof, it means HE has His plans for everyone living in any part of this world. His will is far more than global as it comprises the processions in both Heaven and on Earth. His rulership spans beyond the whole universe that man has identified or not.
For any change to happen according to GOD’s design there are processes of encounter that must serve as precedence and as time goes by, the point of encounter becomes the platform upon which change originates from and sustained. This place of encounter is the heart of man, the only place GOD desires to dwell apart from heaven. This is where GOD desires to encounter man and from there, HE would begin to wrought works that are holy and perfect and able to proffer lasting solutions in form of righteousness and peace.
1Samuel 3:1-5; Genesis 49:3
In any war or battle, the most saddening and devastating outcome each of the sides would want to prevent is the loss of the lives of children. These are supposed to be custodians or bearers of posterity for generations to come. There are battles needed to be fought before any one tries to procreate and be responsible for lives . . .
It is something to ponder that though David had three wives, he did not bear children until his adversaries could no longer pose a threat to his family, especially the children.
As it is imperative to marry right at the right time, so it is imperative to give birth to children at the right and conducive time for their nurturing. Children must be born in might and the beginning of strength as well as the excellency of strength and power.
This is because they must grow and be nurtured in a condition that is controlled by the parents and that prepares them for what the future holds. They must be raised in an environment that has been taken charged by the people that are meant to nurture them. Their grooming/growing place must be secured!
Proverbs 1: 8-9
Even though the Church that has CHRIST as her Head is designed to determine whatever is going on in the very hearts of nations, GOD has made the attributes and similitude of both Church and nation to be embedded in a singular entity or unit called Family. Just like the cells in the body are the units of important systems like the heart and the brain, so is the family the unit system responsible for mirroring in a miniature manner how the Church and the nations GOD rules and leads to function.
The first chapter of the Book of Proverbs mentions the responsibilities of each member of the family almost in passing but the picture it paints about the family in coherence with national operation could not have been clearer than it is. Each member of the unit has been burdened gracefully with the responsibilities that the success of the unit hinges on without the luxury of overlooking one for the other.
