Family- What If Everything Isn’t Alright?


Psalms 68:6- God setteth the solitary in families: he bringeth out those which are bound with chains: but the rebellious dwell in a dry [land].

What if I’m not a part of a biblical family? Mom, dad, siblings, etc.? Well, here are some things to consider:

God has a plan for family, and the plan works!
We can change the plan by redefining marriage and family.
What is the plan?

Genesis 2:23-24- And Adam said, This [is] now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
(See also Prov. 5:18, Mat. 19:7.)

But the hope for all is in the scripture I’ve quoted all week: God places the lonely and apart in families; he leads captives out of chains. Moms, dads, and children can receive the benefits of family even when the family doesn’t start out according to God’s plan.

4 ways to help redeem families
Train your own children
Mentor other children, moms, or dads
Foster or adopt children
Be the best family you can be, with the help of Jesus

Just as sure as I know God wants strong, biblical families, I am sure He intends for all to experience the blessings of being in a family and will make a way for that to happen!
