A Prudent Family Life (Part 3) by Pastor Faith Oyedepo
Topic: A Prudent Family Life (Part 3)
In the previous teaching, you were taught how to think creatively by stirring up your mind with God’s Word. This week, we will consider the topic: The Benefits of Creative Thinking. There are amazing gains when you employ creativity in your family matters.
1. You are never stranded:
Too many people regret in life today because they made hasty decisions in the past. Your mind is the seat of wisdom and when you open it up for the wisdom of God, you can never lack direction. You will always know what to do with what you have to make it enough for your family. Many people are labouring hard but are frustrated and weary because they do not have direction. You can end every form of frustration over any aspect of your family life by wisdom. God’s Word says: The labour of the foolish wearieth every one of them, because he knoweth not how to go to the city (Ecclesiastes 10:15).
2. Relieves stress:
When we engage our minds, we are able to come up with new things through great ideas. We are able to proffer solutions to any challenge that may confront our family lives. This takes a lot of stress off you and improves the quality of your family life.
3. Leads to efficiency:
According to the dictionary, efficiency is defined as “ability to avoid wasting materials, energy, efforts, money, and time in doing something or in producing a desired result” creative thinking will help you manage what you have maximally. I remember the days when we could barely afford two square meals a day and chicken was a luxury, yet, we were healthy because I made use of what we had maximally. That culture has helped me now that food is no longer a concern in our family. Learn how to manage the little and when much comes, you won’t have any cause to waste. God’s Word says: … I created the waster to destroy (Isaiah 54:16). So, wastage destroys. You will not be destroyed! Now, I challenge you to rise up, stir up that creative mind in you and you will never be stranded again in Jesus’ name!
To have the mind of Christ, you need to invite Him into your life If you are not yet born again and you desire to do so right now, please pray this prayer with faith in your heart: Dear Lord Jesus Christ, I come to You today. I am a sinner. Forgive me my sins and cleanse me with Your Blood. I accept You as my Lord and personal Saviour. Make me a child of God today. Thank You for delivering me from sin and satan to serve the living God and thank You for accepting me into Your Kingdom.
Congratulations! If you prayed this simple prayer of faith with me, you are now born again and a child of God. He loves you and will never leave you. Read your Bible daily, obey God’s Word and seek Christian fellowship (John 14:21).
