When The Chain of Command Is Broken

Ellen J. Barrier

God’s Instructions to Follow The Chain of Command:
Teaching our children to “Do the right thing.”

Many parents have failed to do the above. If each generation had continued to teach their children to treat others the way they, themselves, would like to be treated (that is with respect), we wouldn't be confronted with the violence we see in the “Mirror of Society.”  The chain of  command has been broken. It was broken when parents neglected their parental duties.


“But I Know him that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the Lord to do justice and judgment.”
Genesis 18:19

God commands that every parent be a good  role model to their children. That means the parents are to teach their children by example:

Work, support them financially, take good care of them, educate them,  give them the moral support they need, being there for them, and teaching them, to understand what their priorities should be.

What happens  to Earth When the Chain of Command is broken?

When our children deliberately disobey us, we let them know that what they did was unacceptable. And they are grounded. God does the same thing for us when we disobey him.
He takes things away:

Draughts and storms takes away the vegetables and fruits and kills the livestocks, that supply our food. That  results in high prices at the supermarkets, due to lots of crops and livestocks got wiped out. It cause financial losses to those who grow them. Therefore, they have to recover their losses by charging more, so they can continue to grow their crops and livestocks.

Storms wipe out lots of structural property and destroy lives. The damages are tremendously costly. The insurance companies have to raise the premiums, to recover the loses of their insureds money they used to pay claims.

Like any child, when they are grounded, they often times are disappointed with the parents. And sometimes feels that the punishment is too harsh. But they understand that their parents loves them, and always wants  the best for them.

The punishment is to correct the child, so that they learn responsibility. That is the purpose for which God wants us to achieve, by accepting the responsible that he has given us to follow, The Chain of Command.

Supernatural Strength

Ellen J. Barrier
Author/Spirituality Counselor

 Dwell not upon thy weariness, thy strength shall be according to the measure of thy desire.
Arab Proverb

Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall.
But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:30, 31

My Thoughts:
In times of stressful situations that become difficult and impossible for us to deal with and overcome, we seek God for his intervention to give us the power to withstand. When we are confronted by our enemies whose purpose is to destroy us, we face the battle unafraid.  If we should become weak from the battle, God gives us power to continue to fight.  And to those who are on our side that will at some point during the battle, become discouraged and feel like giving up, God increase their strength.

He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. 
Isaiah 40:29
No weapon that is formed against us shall prosper; and every tongue that riseth against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn.  This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their judgment is of me said the LORD.  Isaiah 54:17
