Find Us Faithful

God’s Word:  Genesis 36

God’s message to me:

The choices you make in a marriage partner will follow you all your life.  Those choices will affect your family history as long as the earth remains.  Each child that is born brings into the world with it, its family history.  Children need the safety and security that a stable home can give.  Esau stepped outside of my wishes when he allowed his passions to dictate who he would marry.  Not only his family line, but the world has been affected by his choices.  His blood flows in the veins of that family even today.

My challenge to you is to so live that you could hold your head high as your descendants read your name on the family tree.  Follow my guidelines for a one man-one woman relationship.  Set the example for the following generations.  Be sure you have done all you can to “pass on the faith.”

Set the example that once you have made a choice, you will remain faithful to that choice and do all you can to make that relationship a good one.  There is so much good you can do that is left undone.  Take the time to build the relationships in your life—for my sake.  Abundant blessings will flow into your life when you are faithful to me in the area of your personal relationships.

God’s Question for me:

How are you being faithful to Me in your personal relationships?

God’s Promise to me:

I will bless the faithfulness of your personal relationships down through all future generations.

My prayer to God:

I praise You for my family and the bond we enjoy together.

I am sorry that I don’t focus more on nurturing those relationships.

Thank you for Your Word that always draws us back to what is most important in life.

Help us to set the example through our relationships that will draw others to You.

My Song to God:  Find Us Faithful

And we’re pilgrims on the journey of the narrow road
And those who’ve gone before us line the way
Cheering on the faithful, encouraging the weary
Their lives a stirring testament to God’s sustaining grace

Surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses
Let us run the race not only for the prize
But as those who’ve gone before us let us leave to those behind us
The heritage of faithfulness passed on through godly lives

Oh, may all who come behind us find us faithful
May the fire of our devotion light their way
May the footprints that we leave lead them to believe
And the lives we live inspire them to obey
Oh, may all who come behind us find us faithful

After all our hopes and dreams have come and gone
And our children sift through all we’ve left behind
May the clues that they discover and the memories they uncover
Become the light that leads them to the road we each must find

Oh, may all who come behind us find us faithful
May the fire of our devotion light their way
May the footprints that we leave lead them to believe
And the lives we live inspire them to obey

Oh, may all who come behind us find us faithful
May the fire of our devotion light their way
May the footprints that we leave lead them to believe
And the lives we live inspire them to obey
Oh, may all who come behind us find us faithful
Oh, may all who come behind us find us faithful
