Strengthening Families Across the World through the encouragement of women in their high calling from God as wives, mothers and homemakers.

ForStrengthThe ark kept Noah and his family safe from the flood. But although they were safe, they had to go through the storm. We will never avoid going through the storms and tempests of this life. Consequently, we must learn how to navigate them. God shows the way through the example of Noah who built a strong home, a home that could withstand the biggest tempest that ever hit this earth.

Hebrews 11:7 says: “By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.”

Each one of us faces our different storms. We may face even bigger storms ahead. The most important thing we can do is continually strengthen our inner man, our marriage, and our home. Ask God to show you any leaks where the destroying enemy can enter.

Our physical home constantly needs repair. I am glad I married a “Mr. Fix-it” as I call my husband. However, more than physical wear and tear is spiritual wear and tear.

Constantly check what is going on in your home. What are your children watching on the electronics in your home? The enemy hates godly homes and he looks for openings in the walls where he can enter in. He looks for broken down walls.

Close all holes. Take authority over compromise, worldliness, and all evil. Plead for God’s protection. Cover your home with the precious blood of Jesus Christ. Make your home strong to resist the buffeting of the storms of life. Fill your children with God’s Word so they will be strong to face the storms. Become such a diligent watchwoman that you scare the devil!

Blessings to you today,

Nancy Campbell

TheBlessednessI have been thinking of the blessedness of motherhood. Yes, along with the blessedness is hard work and heartache. However, I believe that the devil robs mothers of the joys and glory of motherhood. Because God ordained motherhood and created us for this high purpose, the devil hates it. He hates what God mandates. He feeds us with lies to think we are wasting our lives when in fact, we are fulfilling the very perfect will of God. When we embrace motherhood, we are on Gods side.

No other woman can compare with the highest favor that was ever given to a woman, a young teenager named Mary, who was privileged to carry the Son of God in her womb. The angel called her “highly favored” in Luke 1:28 and 30. This privilege was given to only one woman in the whole of history.

However, each time a new baby is conceived in a womb, it is also a God moment. It is God who gives the conception. It is God who creates this new, precious life in the womb—a life that has never lived before and there will never be anyone like this one again. And because God gives life and loves life, His favor is also upon every pregnant woman.

In the original Greek, the word for “highly favored” is “charitoo.” This word was never used before the New Testament! It means “to be accepted, to give grace to.” It was God’s grace to Mary to receive the privilege to carry Jesus in her womb. It is also God’s grace to us to carry a life in our womb.

Dear mother, don’t be deceived by the lies of the world and society around you. There is no higher mission you can do in your life than to carry a new human being, and more truthfully, an eternal soul in your womb.

Embrace the blessedness. Embrace the truth. Live in the joy of it. Live in the glory of it. Lift up your head for you are doing something eternal. Everything else you do in life will be left behind, but you will take this precious child into the eternal realm with you if you are faithful to lead him/her to salvation.

What an amazing assignment. You are giving a child the opportunity and privilege to experience the glory of eternity with Christ forever. It’s only in the “forever glory” that you will truly understand the enormity and power of carrying a child in your womb.

Be blessed,

Nancy Campbell

GuardStandObadiah chapter 11 talks about foreigners entering the gates of Jerusalem. As mothers, we must constantly guard our home. We must watch for the “foreign” sneaking through the gates of our home.

The “foreign” is all around us. We live in the midst of it. God doesn’t want to take us out of it, but to be shining lights in the midst of it. Jesus prayed, “I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil” (John 17:15).

However, although it is all around us, we must be on guard that none of the “foreign” enters our home. Our home should be a sanctuary from evil--all that is opposite to God’s standard, His Word, and His heart.

The Adversary looks for any opening he can find to intrude into your sanctuary. Guard your gates. Guard your home on all four sides. By intercession and prayer, put a hedge of protection around your home (Job 1:10).

Give no foothold for the enemy. Allow no estrangement in your marriage. Don’t allow any worldly spirit to come in through the media. Be ruthless against the enemy. 1 Peter 5:8-9 says, "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: whom resist steadfast in the faith."

Let's have the same testimony as Nehemiah when he confessed, “I purged out everything foreign” (Nehemiah 13:30 NLT).

Many blessings to you and your family today,

Nancy Campbell
