About the Video:

“Let the Lord Build Your House” speaks of wanting God’s ways (blessings, rules, order, laws, boundaries, guidance, direction) versus popular opinion, popular vote, political acceptance, being politically correct, or current culture/pop culture.

“Build” speaks of constructing, erecting, assembling, shaping, and framing. “Build” speaks of following your blueprints, specs, design, patterns, diagrams, layout, or sketch.

  1. To have a strong family, we must build our houses on routines (habits, practices). (Proverbs 22:28, Luke 4:16, Luke 22:39, Acts 17:2)
  1. Your routines may look like how you do birthdays, holidays, vacations, date night, family night, eating meals together, and church attendance.
  2. Routines provide good memories, instill values, meaningful experiences, bonding moments, and traditions.
  3. Routines are what you want to pass on, what you want them to keep, what you want them to remember.
  1. To let the Lord build your house, you must have roles (man, husband, father; woman, wife mother; baby, child, teenager, young adult, adult). (Ephesians 6:1-4, Ephesians 5:22, 33, 1 Peter 3:1)
  1. Roles are the things that youhave to fulfill.
    1. Empowered, in charge, designed, expected.

  1. To have a strong family and let the Lord build your house, there must be conflict resolution. (Ephesians 4:26, James 1:19, Matthew 5:9, Colossians 3:13)
  1. Being upset, mad, frustrated, irritated, arguments, disagreements, mistakes, pressure, stress, crisis, and problems are inevitable. (Matthew 5:25, Genesis 2:24)
  2. Conflict resolution is possible when there is…
    1. Confrontation vs. avoidance
    2. Negotiation and compromise vs. demands and stubbornness
    3. My way and winning vs. selflessness
    4. Agreements vs. independence
