Lord thy God giveth thee.
There are two main areas in a war: the front lines and the home front. The home front empowers the front lines.
If the home front is blessed, the front lines will be well supplied. If the home front is cursed, the front lines will suffer.
A BLESSED HOME FRONT
So, too, in your life, you need a blessed, strong home front. One area of your home front is your first relationship with your parents.
If it's not blessed, it will affect the rest of your life and weaken everything else. Do you want to live a consecrated life?
Then bless your home front!
DON'T LIVE IN THE PAST
It doesn't matter what happened in the past because either way, God used it to bring you to Him. Hold no bitterness nor unforgiveness nor resentment. Those are curses.
If your parents are alive, tell them you love them. Do something to bless them.
If they're not alive, thank God for the blessings you received through them. Bless your first home front, and the curse will lift. Then your life will become blessed, and your battle will become victorious.
A BELATED WISH TO ALL PARENTS
(A Belated "Happy Mother's and Father's Day!")
TODAY: Give thanks to your parents as everything has helped bring you closer to the Lord. Now go, and win the battles of life!
