Today's Family Meditation

the family heart-connexion!

Malachi 4
5. Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.
6. And he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, lest I come and strike the earth with a curse."

One of the most terrible problems in the world today comes about when hearts are broken in the home, and when this causes the hearts of parents and children to disconnect.

Sometimes this happens because parents neglect their children, don't discipline their children at all. Sometimes it happens because parents discipline them too much.

But this can happen even when the children and parents have seemingly begun by establishing a good relationship in the child's early years.

It seems that for some reason, after the child reaches the teen years, and begins to want to forge their own identity, some kind of disconnect of heart happens.

Sometimes it is discord between parents themselves that causes the disconnect between parents and children because the children become insecure and then angry that the parents seem to be breaking up their home.

Sometimes the children simply develop a rebellious attitude which goes too far. Many times some kind of addiction may be involved.

But whatever the cause, God says that there is a curse that strikes the earth if that heart-connexion between parents and children is not re-established.

It seems that society and the earth are now suffering as a result of that curse being released in the earth.

Father, today I want to invite You into my family situation.
I ask that You will help me to turn my heart towards those in my immediate family from whom I am separated.
I ask You to forgive me for my contribution to this separation.
I also forgive them for how they have hurt me.
I ask that You heal our hearts, and that You give us wisdom for the future of our relationship,
In Jesus' name,
