What an incredible time we are living in! Never before in any of our lifetimes have we been required to stay at home like this. In such an unprecedented hour, we all must be aware that the Lord is speaking to our nation. And this message is so clear that it is coming to every person in the world.
Don’t miss what the Lord is saying:
Your family is your center.
This was the message that God gave to me over 10 years ago when He said, “Richard, I can’t fix San Francisco until you fix your family.” It was four in the morning when this message came to me from God. I was driving to Los Angeles for a meeting, while beside me my family was asleep in our van. I then made this statement to the Lord: “Good Lord, that’s the only part of my life I’m proud of. All of my children are serving You!”
The Lord did not respond to my self-gratification. He instead replied, “When you fix your family, Richard, then I can heal all of San Francisco.“ I then said, “Lord, please tell me what’s wrong with my family.” The Lord simply said, “You, Richard, are what’s wrong.”
That was over 10 years ago when God spoke to me those words. Those simple words were true. As I began to humble myself before my family, every communication problem and misunderstanding slowly began to disappear. I strived to make all our family conversations kind, gentle, and loving.
To be extremely honest with you, it was hard for me because I realized that in every communication I could no longer be the ultimate authoritarian, which was my traditional idea of being a dad. I had to become a servant to everyone in my family ~ no matter how insignificant the need appeared to be.
When the Lord said I was the problem, I realized that I could also be part of the solution. Whoever you are, whatever family group the Lord has put you in charge of, please realize the healing God wants to bring to your family. Your humble spirit and love for each family member is key. Jesus put it this way, “But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister; and whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant.”
I’ll see you today on Periscope.
