Have you ever found it challenging to maintain balance and unity in your marriage or your home environment? Does it ever seem like something is just not working? You are not alone! However, God’s order for the family lays a foundation for stability and peace in the home. At Be in Health, we call this foundation ‘Godly Order.’
What are the benefits of God’s order in the family?
When man and wife come together in unity according to God’s design, their children can reap the benefits of a safe, stable environment as God intended. Godly order is one of the teachings that we present during our week-long For My Life Retreat. It is also available in the For My Life Online course.
Pastors John and Adrienne Shales present a snippet of the Godly Order teaching in this video clip from our For My Life Retreat. Discover how you can apply God’s order for the family and creation to your life.
Here are a few key points that this teaching addresses:
-What is Godly order, and why is it essential for your life – married or single?
-What is the fallout when Godly order isn’t represented or is misrepresented in the home?
-How does God represent Godly order through the roles of the different members of the Godhead – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit?
-What are the blessings that come from living in God’s order in the home?
-How should the husband and wife relate to each other according to God’s ways?
-How can a couple learn to communicate with each other and come together in unity properly?
-Who should be the true head of the home? (Hint: it may not be what you think!)
-What specific roles did God design for the man and woman to maintain in the home?
-What might be getting in the way of maintaining Godly order?
-What does 1 Corinthians 11:3 mean?
But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman [is] the man; and the head of Christ [is] God. 1 Corinthians 11:3 KJV
This dynamic teaching will answer these questions and more!
The powerful benefits that accompany the restoration of God’s order in creation
It has been said, “So goes the home, so goes the world.” In this day and age, this statement couldn’t be more relevant. What if the most dramatic change to social structure begins in the home? What if the misrepresentation of God in the home is fueling the enemy’s strategy to draw people away from Him? We must establish in our hearts that God’s ways are perfect and seek His Word to discover the purest form of His plan. It is essential that we begin to understand Godly order and seek God for wisdom to apply His design to our lives.
The law of the LORD [is] perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD [is] sure, making wise the simple. 8 The statutes of the LORD [are] right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD [is] pure, enlightening the eyes. 9 The fear of the LORD [is] clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD [are] true [and] righteous altogether. 10 More to be desired [are they] than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. 11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: [and] in keeping of them [there is] great reward. 12 Who can understand [his] errors? cleanse thou me from secret [faults]. 13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous [sins]; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression. 14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer. Psalm 19:7-14 KJV
God’s design for order in the home has been distorted and forgotten and we see the effects of this with the breakdown in the homes. Now is the time to reorient our hearts with God’s true will and His ways. When we do this He will begin to restructure the home as He intended. He is the perfect Father, He knows exactly how a family unit should function. He designed the home to be a safe place for all of its members to learn and grow up together in Him. This is only possible when we give God the Father the position as the head of our homes.
