Protecting our families through Faith

So much have happened in the last week. The Boston Marathon Bombing, the anniversary of Oklahoma City Bombing that occurred on April 19, 1995, and Texas fertilizer plant tragedy. The very first thing I said to myself was , "Thank you God for the safety of my family". I know that sounded selfish but I just can't help it. Of course, we prayed for the victims' families and those who have died during the tragedies.

Some people asked me, was it God? Was He behind it? No, God is not the one doing it. It's the Devil that loves the smell of deaths by creating evil in people's hearts and he will keep on doing it! So how do we protect our family by the Devil? What must be done in order to keep our heart one with God?

JESUS. That's it. That's the answer.

The bible said that Christ came to save, not to condemn the world. (John 3:17) He came to give us Salvation, not a gun to kill us. He came to free us from bondage of sin and condemnation , not to make us a slave to evil and sin. He wants us to be slave to righteousness by His Blood instead of being slave to the worldly fleshy things and pleasures. I mean think about, if God wants to kill us, then John 3:16 wouldn't be true since it said, "For God so LOVED the WORLD.." Loving is opposite of killing, right? If we love our children, do we kill them or steal from them? Or do we protect them and pray over them by the anointing of the Holy Spirit?

For some reason, it's easier for us to blame God than the Devil. Why can't we blame the Devil? He's the bad guy, the bad seed, and the bad omen. God is the Loving Father, the Healer, our Protector. The Flesh loves the bad dude. It give us the pleasure, the wild side and the daredevil stunts that can be done to please the devil himself. But yet, when we were born again, we are no longer of the flesh but of the Spirit. (John 3:6) and we become new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17). Yes we do become weak where we can do worldly things and that's human nature (Mark 14:38) and that why we pray, and trust God over our flesh.

So what can we do to protect our families from harm? First we pray for protection and put our trust in God in everything (1 Thessalonians 5:17). Never stop praying no matter what. God hears our prayers even when we think He's not listening but He is! Give all your worries and care to Him and stand against the flesh and evil (1 Peter 5:7-10) and wear the Armor of God (Ephesians 6:11-24).

Everyday I make sure I pray for my family's safety. I trust in God and I blame the Devil for what he's doing to the people by putting evil thoughts and activities in people's hearts and minds. When it comes to my children, I can be overprotective. They are mine and they are my blessings from the Lord. I will do anything to protect them even if it cost my life. I am their father and want to see them grow up and be blessed in the Lord.

Ephesians 6:10 says, "Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might." He wants me to trust Him and stay strong in the power of His might. How do I do that? By having Faith in Him and know that it's not God that destroying the World. It's the Devil Himself and he have no power over me!

We teach our children about Christ, His love, and His finished works. We teach them to stay close to us and never talk to strangers. We also encourage them to pray, to trust Him and to love one another in the home and keep the family bonds strong. We as parents are responsible to make sure the they are learning and training in the way of the Lord . As long we are humbled and put God first, I am sure this family is safe by the Holy Spirit.

So next time, when bad things happen like the Boston Marathon Bombing, blame the Devil, not God. He loves us so much that Christ died for us. Devil don't care if you or anyone that you loved get destroyed or died. Blame the Devil and pray over your family for His protection. Rest in His arms and Dwell in the secret place of the most High God. (Psalms 91:1-16)

I love you all and God bless you!
