#Change in my family begins with me!
Judges 6: 26 AMP
“26 and build an altar to the Lord your God on top of this mountain stronghold [with stones laid down] in an orderly way. Then take the second bull and offer a burnt sacrifice using the wood of the Asherah which you shall cut down.”
Do you remember Gideon? His father worshiped Baal and so did the town they lived in. Then the angel of the Lord came to Gideon and asked Gideon to tear down the altars built for Baal and make one for the LORD.
It was a big thing for Gideon because he was scared of his father and the people in the town but he still went ahead and tore down the altar and made one for the LORD. What happened? The people in town wanted to kill Gideon. Gideon obey God and he changed everything for his own family.
Then I read about this "family that wanted to have their family history chronicled, so they hired a professional biographer. Unfortunately, Uncle George the black sheep in the family was executed in an electric chair for committing several murders. The biographer said “no problem, I’ll simply say Uncle George occupied a chair of applied electronics at an important government institution, which he was attached to his position by the strongest ties. His death came as a real shock.” It seems we can only learn from our family tree."
Humbly Lord God, I want to ask that You will help me with change in my own life. I realise that if I don’t do something drastically it won’t happen. I need Your wisdom and insight and I want to ask help me change according to Your Word. Lord I feel that I have become meek and I can’t take confrontation any more.
Lord be the change in my life that You want for me. I surrender my life into Your hands and I accept You Holy Spirit in the name of the LORD JESUS CHRIST. Amen
