You see, we are all called to run a race for Jesus, and repentance is the starting line of that race. It’s futile to try to run the race if you never made it to the starting line to begin with! This is the problem with many believers today. They are trying to follow the Lord, but they have never truly repented and surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ. The result of the false gospel so prevalent today can be seen in churches full of half-hearted Christians whose lives are still centered on selfishness and the principles of the world. Jesus came to bring the kingdom of God to the earth. He came to completely transform individuals, families and nations from the inside out – a radical revolution that would change the world through obedient, blood-bought servants who are willing to bow their knee and say, “Lord, after all You have done for me, what would You have me do for You?” – WRITTEN BY BROTHER YUN

“Do not trust in a friend; Do not put your confidence in a companion; Guard the doors of your mouth from her who lies in your bosom. For son dishonors father, Daughter rises against her mother, Daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; A man's enemies are the men of his own household. Therefore I will look to the Lord; I will wait for the God of my salvation; My God will hear me." - Micah 7:5-7 

In Genesis chapter 2 and 3, we read that God formed Adam and Eve and placed them in the Garden of Eden. He commanded them not to eat the fruits of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. It was told to Adam and he might have told to Eve. The conversation and the whole matter should be kept within the family that is between God, Adam and Eve.

But one day Eve took that matter and discussed with the serpent to whom she should not have shared the matter. That led to her downfall in turn brought great trouble to their relationship with God.

I have two elder brothers and our parents tried their best to raise us in Godly way. My mother was so strict and prayerful but yet she struggled a lot with the problems created by us.

During our childhood we created lot of problems in our school, neighbourhood. When we entered the teen age we struggled a lot with temptations and at times we failed to live holy and spiritual. At times our life was a total mess.

But the best part is my mother never shared our family matters with her parents, sisters and brothers. She had never spoken about our sins, wrong doings to any one of our relatives or even to any one of our Spiritual elders. Because she had never wanted to put us down in front of anyone. So she always kept our family matters within our own family and she had never allowed my father to scold us in public and share matters with others.

She made it a point to take our problems and matters only to God in prayer. Whenever we created a problem or we struggled with sins, she cried to God alone. Because of her prayers today God has changed us, blessed us and using us for His purpose.

Because of her character no one from our relatives or from our parents’ family could create a problem in our family as they never knew what was actually going in our family.

My dear young friends, you have to learn to keep your relationship matters within your relationship. You should not share the words or secrets or failures or physical problems or anything of your loved ones with others.

You might be married. If you have a problem in your marriage life or any other matters just take it to Jesus Christ in prayer. God will speak through Holy Spirit and lead you in right way. Do not run even to your own brother or sisters and tell them about the bad behaviour or weakness or character of your spouse. If you do so it will destroy your own reputation and the entire relationship.

Do not give way to devil to attack your family life by sharing the personal matters with someone outside your marriage relationship. Your marriage relationship includes God, you and your spouse.

If any of your loved ones are sick, take that matter to God and pray. If anyone is weak Spiritually take them and their weakness to God in prayer. Whatever that troubles you in your relationship with your spouse or loved ones, take it to the Lord. He will hear your prayers and will save you from all kinds of evil.

Proverbs 25:9-10 says “... And do not disclose the secret to another; Lest he who hears it expose your shame, And your reputation be ruined."

Share all your problems, worries, trials and secrets of your marriage life or any relationship with God alone and stay blessed. You will live in peace and joy.
