The Family Business - January 13, 2022

I have a friend who owns a successful business. He employs more than five hundred people. He appreciates each and every one of them, yet he treats three of his workers with partiality. They are his sons. While he hears all requests, he especially hears theirs. They are being trained to run the family business.

So are you. When God saved you, he gave not only forgiveness for your past but also authority in the present and a role in the future. This life is on-the-job training for eternity. We are part of God’s family. Ruling the universe is the family business. And when you seek to honor the family business, God hears your requests.

“When a believing person prays, great things happen” (James 5:16). Will God do what you ask? Perhaps. Or perhaps he will do more than you imagine.
