BEWARE! SATAN WANTS TO DESTROY YOUR FAMILY
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8 NKJV).
Job was a wealthy man with a happy and peaceful family of seven sons and three daughters. There was no rancour among these children. In fact, the sons used to hold feasts in turn in their homes. They used to invite their sisters to feast with them. Their father was happy with this, and he used to purify them so that the peaceful and happy co-existence of his children would not be soiled. Unfortunately, Satan was not happy with this peaceful and happy family. He looked for ways to disrupt the peaceful and happy family. An opportunity came when God gave him permission to tempt Job. It is interesting that the family of Job was his first target. When the children were feasting in the house of their eldest brother, Satan struck and killed them all before he went ahead to destroy properties of Job (see Job 1:1-15).
Satan is still targeting peaceful and happy families today. In fact, he really wants to destroy the family system. That is why polygamy, bigamy, single parenthood, homosexuality, lesbianism, same-sex marriage and other perversions of the family as instituted by God are gaining popularity nowadays. Even in many families that consist of a father, a mother and a child (or children), Satan is still working tirelessly to destruct them and cause disharmony in them. Unfortunately, many people are helping the devil to destroy their families by their actions and/or inactions.
Like Job, every father and other stakeholders in the family should always work for the peaceful co-existence of every member of the family. Do not do or say anything that will enable the devil to destroy your family. Pray regularly for your immediate family and the family system as God instituted it.
Beware! Satan wants to destroy your family. He will not have his way over your family in Jesus’ name. Amen.
