God Wants Your Family WHOLE!

Regardless of who you are or the existing conditions in your family relationships, God wants you and your family WHOLE!

Those of you who are divorced…God wants you WHOLE!

Single parents…God wants you WHOLE! Unequally yoked husbands and wives…God wants you WHOLE!

Widows and widowers…God wants you WHOLE!

Husbands and wives…God wants your marriages WHOLE!

Parents…God wants your relationships with your children made WHOLE!

Young people…God wants you WHOLE! Children…God wants you WHOLE!

God established the family as the very foundation or core of our society. He planned for our homes to be the central focus of our lives where all our needs are met. He planned for husbands and wives to have a fulfilling relationship with one another in every way… spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally.

When God created Eve and presented her to Adam, Adam said, “This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh…” (Genesis 2:23). God made them to be ONE FLESH, “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh” (Genesis 2:24, NIV).

God intended this union to be more than simply a physical union between Adam and Eve. There was perfect love, peace and harmony between them. They were two distinct personalities with different desires, needs and temperaments…yet they were ONE.

Satan has unleashed an all-out attack on families!

Adam looked upon Eve and loved her as if she were part of his very own flesh. Eve also considered Adam to be part of her flesh.

They enjoyed perfect communion. There was no envy, no jealousy, no harsh words spoken in anger, no striving to prove who was the boss. They were ONE. Each one was a complement to the other. All that Adam needed and desired physically, mentally and emotionally was fulfilled in Eve. All that Eve needed and desired was fulfilled in Adam.

When God created the family, He planned for man to enjoy the same close family relationship He enjoyed with Adam and Eve, as He fellowshipped and walked with them in the garden. He gave Adam and Eve the ability to reproduce children who were created in their own image and likeness to cherish and enjoy.

As their Father, God provided for all their needs. He placed them in a perfect environment…there was no pain, sin, sickness or death. They had everything they needed. They walked together in perfect fellowship with one another and with God. They were complete…perfectly WHOLE in every way.

This was God’s original plan and purpose for families.


As a result of man’s sin, that beautiful family relationship…that perfect love, peace and harmony…with the Father and with one another became distorted.

Today, families are living far below God’s perfect plan for them. Over HALF of all marriages end in divorce. There is a spirit of dissatisfaction. Most husbands and wives are no longer finding the fulfillment they need in each other and are seeking fulfillment elsewhere. Women complain they are not being fulfilled emotionally and mentally, while men most often complain they are not being fulfilled mentally and physically.

In many homes, parents and their children find it difficult to communicate with one another. There is resentment and bitterness in their relationships.

Because of the mounting financial pressures in many homes both parents work. After a long day on the job the parents rush home, prepare dinner, take care of household chores, prepare for work the following day, and collapse in an easy chair in front of the television or fall exhausted into bed. There is little or no time for the family to spend together laughing, playing, sharing, reading the Word, or praying together.

Many children and teenagers come home from school to an empty house. They are lonely and many times feel unloved…that no one really cares about them. Their parents are either too busy or too tired to listen or become involved in their lives.

Satan has unleashed an all-out attack on families! Using every strategy possible, he is trying to tear down family relationships, create division and sow seeds of bitterness and rebellion. His objective: to hinder families from knowing and experiencing all that God planned for them to enjoy as a family, and to completely destroy the family as the divine institution God planned for it to be.

On the surface it appears that he is succeeding. Thousands of letters pour into my office from desperate parents who have wayward children; from mothers and fathers whose children are hooked on drugs or alcohol; from wives whose husbands are committing adultery; from husbands whose wives have left them; from children whose parents are unsaved.

Here are just a few of those desperate cries:

“My husband is addicted to marijuana and has been drinking with guys he works with… My father-in-law is an alcoholic, my Mom is not a Christian. I need strength and wisdom to raise my three children and to do God’s will.”

“Dear Dr. Cerullo…I have been enriched by your ministry; however, the enemy has attacked my children. The most desperate need is for my son, who has turned to homosexuality.”

A 12-year-old boy wrote me…”I had the Holy Spirit once, but I lost it. I’m out in the world. Can you help me, Brother Cerullo?”

I received this prayer request from a woman whose entire family needs a miracle from God:

“My marriage is BLAH! It needs rekindled! Husband and children need saved! My son needs a job. We need restoration in our family relationships. My daughter…to have a heart for home!”

There are Christian homes where husbands and wives need to be delivered from lust…who are constantly in a battle in their minds against temptation …lust is burning in their hearts toward the opposite sex.

There are homes where husbands and wives have been doing things in their own relationships that are displeasing to God. They are burning with lust because they are not satisfied with the natural work. They are turning to the world’s standard by using ways and means of arousing each other that have no place in the life of Christians.

There are homes where everything on the surface appears to be fine…there are no major problems or crises…but the excitement that was once in the marriage is gone. There is no real communication, no close fellowship, sharing of goals and ideals.

There are young people who have animosity, anger, bitterness, resentment and hatred toward their mothers and fathers.

There are many, many homes that are suffering financially. The financial worries and problems are pulling husbands and wives apart.

There are homes where chronic sicknesses and disease are putting a strain on family relationships.


I’ve got news for Satan: he cannot have our families! I’m sick and tired of what he has been doing to destroy our families. It’s time for us, as God’s anointed, blood-bought sons and daughters, to draw the line and say, “That’s enough, Satan! You’re not going one step further. You’re not going to destroy our families!”

Satan is a liar! We don’t have to sit back and watch in helplessness and defeat while Satan tries to destroy our families. God has not planned any defeats for our families!

Regardless of the problems you are facing as a family, it is God’s will that you and your family be delivered from every evil work of the enemy, that your family be totally restored, and that your family will experience the fullness in your family life that God originally intended for you to have.

As Adam and Eve were ONE FLESH and were mentally, physically and emotionally fulfilled in each other, God has planned for you to experience that same unity in your marriage relationship.

As Adam and Eve were given children to be part of their family to enjoy, God has planned for you to be able to ENJOY your children. He wants you to love and nurture them as He loves and nurtures you.

He has planned for your children to enrich your life…love and respect you. He wants you to share your lift with your children…to train them…to work with them…to laugh and play…to worship Him together.

Just as Adam and Eve walked together in perfect fellowship with one another and with God, God had planned for you to enjoy love, joy, peace and harmony…perfect unity with Him and with on another.

Just as God provided for all of Adam and Eve’ needs, He has planned to provide for all your family’. needs. This is God’s will for you!

It is up to you! Do you want to have a WHOLE family? Do you really want God to restore broken relationships in your family…to heal your marriage to save your husband or wife, to deliver your loved ones from drug and alcohol abuse?

Satan comes to steal, kill and destroy, but Jesus came to give life and that MORE ABUNDANTLY (John 10:10).

He has destroyed the works of Satan. The work has been done. Jesus settled it on Calvary. Now, it’s up to you and me to rise up in the Spirit and use the authority God has given us as His children to stop Satan!

Stop and think about the areas in your family life where you are living below God’s original plan and purpose for families. You may be facing financial problems, problems with communication, problems with sickness, a wayward son or daughter, lack of family time together…whatever the problems may be that are hindering you and your family from enjoying God’s best, write them down.

Now, by faith say aloud:

“God has not planned any defeats for my family. He has planned for us to be WHOLE in every way…spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally.”


The first thing you must do is to face your family needs and problems from the same powerful position of KNOWING as Jesus did when He faced and defeated Satan. You must recognize how Satan is trying to steal from your family. Don’t settle for less than God’s best! If there are existing situations or problems in your marriage or other areas of your family life, do not accept them as “normal” occurrences that all families must experience and think there is nothing you can do about them.

God wants your family WHOLE… but it’s up to you!

Face your family needs and problems:

KNOWING who you are as a child of God…

KNOWING what God’s will is for you and your family…

KNOWING what belongs to you as a child of God!

There are Christian families today living below what God has provided for them; some are living in defeat because they do not know ALL that Christ has provided for them through His life, death and resurrection. As a result, they are limiting what God can do for them and are limiting themselves.

Through His obedience unto death, Jesus became the “author of eternal salvation” (Hebrews 5:9). What most Christians have failed to understand is that salvation includes more than forgiveness of sin. We know that Christ came to “SAVE” sinners (I Timothy 1:15), and that those who confess their sins and believe that God raised Christ from the dead shall be “SAVED.”

Open your Bible to Acts, Chapter 16, and read verses 25-34. In these verses, the Philippian jailer asked Paul and Silas what he must do to be SAVED. They told him, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you shall be saved, you and your household” (Acts 16:31, NAS). After preaching the Word to him and his entire household, they believed and were immediately baptized.

The word “SAVED” is translated from the Greek word “SOZO,” which not only refers to forgiveness of sin and eternal salvation, it also includes:

  • Deliverance from danger (Matthew 8:25)
  • Deliverance from sickness (James 5:15)
  • Deliverance from the future wrath of God at Christ’s second coming (Romans 5:9)
  • ALL the blessings given by God to men in Christ (Romans 8:32)

Not only have you been forgiven your sins, the power of sin has been broken in your life…

You have the promise of deliverance from danger… You have healing…

You have deliverance from the wrath of God… You have all the promises and blessings that are in Christ!

When you were “SAVED,” Christ came to dwell within you. You became ONE with Him. In this spiritual union, you are WHOLE.

For in Him the whole fullness of Deity (the Godhead), continues to dwell in bodily form—giving complete expression of the divine nature. And you are in Him, made full and have come to fullness of life—in Christ you too are filled with the Godhead: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and reach full spiritual stature…(Colossians 2:9-10, TAB)

In Christ, you have fullness of life…you reach full spiritual stature…you are made WHOLE!

The word “WHOLE” is also translated from the Greek word “SOZO.” It means “perfect and entire; complete; sound in every way.” In Christ, God has planned for you to be made WHOLE…perfect and entire, complete, sound in every way…spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally.


There is a story of a woman in the Bible who had been sick for 12 years (Matthew 9:20-22). Physically she was dying. Day after day, her condition grew worse. No doubt, her strength was gone. There was no one who could help her.

Financially, she was completely “broke.” She had spent every penny she had on physicians seeking a cure for her disease.

Mentally and emotionally she was drained… exhausted. She had “suffered many things of many physicians” (Mark 5:26). She was discouraged, afraid, depressed. She was completely at the end of herself. All hope was gone.

Then someone told her about Jesus. The message was simply this:

“You don’t have to go home and die. Out there in the middle of that crowd is a Man called Jesus, the Son of the living God. He is opening blind eyes, unstopping deaf ears, forgiving men of their sins, causing the lame to walk.

Don’t go home and die…go to Him and take God’s power for the needs in your life.”

The woman acted upon the Word she heard. She said to herself, “If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole” (Matthew 9:21). Can you see her gathering her last ounce of energy as she begins to push her way through the crowd? I can imagine her saying, “If I can somehow press my way through this crowd, I’ll be able to touch Him…1’11 be set free from this sickness…I’ll be strengthened…1’11 be made WHOLE!”

She no longer cared what people thought about her. Her mind was set…she was determined to touch Jesus. She did not let anything or anyone stop her. Overcoming every obstacle, she pressed her way through the crowd until finally she was able to touch Jesus.

Jesus turned to her and said, “Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole” (Matthew 9:22).

From that very hour she was made WHOLE…perfect and complete…not just physically, she was sound in every way!

As Jesus was still speaking, Jairus’ servant came to him and told him his daughter was dead. Jesus told him, “Fear not: believe only, and she shall be made whole” (Luke 8:50). In other words, “Don’t look at the circumstances, Jairus. Don’t give up…don’t accept defeat. Just believe in Me that I will do what I said, and your daughter will be WHOLE.”

In Gennesaret, they brought multitudes of people with all manner of sicknesses and disease to Jesus. All those who touched Him “were made perfectly whole” (Matthew 14:36). They were made perfect and complete, sound in every way.

This is God’s will for you and your family!

He wants you and your family to be perfectly WHOLE. He is concerned about every aspect of your life.

He wants every member of your family WHOLE. He wants your minds renewed and your emotions healed.

He wants your bodies to be perfectly whole.

He wants your financial needs to be met.

He wants your relationships restored.



The second thing you must do as you face your family needs and problems, is to press your way through in the Spirit to touch Jesus. Like the woman who pressed her way through the crowd, make a strong determination to not allow anything or anyone to stop you from touching Jesus. As a family, determine all the areas…problems, needs, desires …in your lives that need to be made whole, individually and as a family.

Persevere in the Spirit! Press your way through every negative force. Use your spiritual weapons…fast and pray together as a family until you see the answer manifested in your lives.

This is God’s time for you and your family! God has given me a mandate to bring the “New Anointing” message back to North America before He brings judgment. (I have written you how we are going to do this through a weekly international television ministry.) In our meetings already this year during our family deliverance nights, many times it has been difficult for me to stand on the platform because the power and anointing of God has been so strong. Entire families are being made whole by the power of God.

Marriages are being healed; men and women involved in illicit sex are being set free; young people are being made whole…they are being saved, healed, delivered from drugs, delivered from the animosity and bitterness in their hearts toward their parents. Whenever there is a meeting near you, whatever you do, bring your family…press your way through and touch Jesus.


As I began to study and prepare this lesson, God spoke to my heart and said, “Tell My people to put back the family altar in their homes.” God wants your home to be a place where you love and worship Him together as a family.

Even if your husband or wife is unsaved, He wants you to set aside a special time every day with your children to pray together. He wants you to make prayer a vital part of your lives together. He wants you to spend times together as a family worshiping and loving Him. He wants to be the central focus of your lives!

God has a special word for His people. By His Spirit, He is saying to you now:

Take the limits off what God wants to do for you and your family!

“My people, go back to the family altar…make your homes a place where My Presence can dwell.

My Spirit is grieved. Do you think that I cannot see the turmoil…the confusion? You have crowded Me out of your homes.

I desire to fellowship with you and your family, as I did with Adam and Eve in the garden. Will you make room for Me? Will you open your hearts and receive Me into your homes?

Where My Presence dwells there is peace, there is joy. Open your arms and welcome Me into your homes, My children. For I desire to be a Father unto you. I desire to meet your needs. I desire to be a refuge for you in this evil generation. I desire to bless you and set you above the nations of this earth, so that they will know that I am your God…that I am dwelling in you and there is no other God beside Me.

Receive Me into your homes, My children, and I will heal your families. I will cause you to know the fullness of life that I have prepared for you to enjoy. Only, put Me first above all else. Sanctify and purify yourselves, your children, your homes. Dedicate all your possessions unto Me. Seek My face with a pure heart and I will walk with you. You will be My children, My beloved, and I will be your Father. I will pour out My blessings upon you as never before and you will know Me as your Father, the Supplier of all your needs. Many of you know Me as your God, but I desire that you know Me as your Father God.”

Receive the word of the Lord! Take a moment right now to praise God, to rejoice! Don’t take this word lightly. Act on what He has spoken to your heart. Do whatever is necessary to MAKE TIME to pray together. God wants your family WHOLE, but it is up to you to act on what He is speaking to your heart.

If you are not praying together regularly as a family, make a new commitment together. Regardless of the busy schedules you may have… MAKE TIME to pray. Put God first. Make this time together, worshiping and fellowshipping with God, the single most important thing that you do. Even if your husband or wife is unsaved, spend this time with your children teaching them by your example how to pray, how to release their faith and believe God to meet their needs. Don’t allow distractions or interruptions to hinder you. Press through in the Spirit!


The third thing you must do as you face your family needs and problems is to take the limit off God. There are many people today who are limiting what God can and will do for them. They can believe God for the greatest of all miracles…the salvation of their souls…believe that all their sins are forgiven, that they are righteous before God, that they have eternal life, that they have power over sin . Yet, they do not believe God for the healing of their bodies, for the financial needs, or for any of the other needs and day-to-day problems they may have.

Now that you know God’s will, you know God’s original plan and purpose for families, you know that God wants you and your family WHOLE in every way…physically, mentally, emotionally, financially… believe Him for all your needs.

Believe God to restore your marriage to the place where you and your husband or wife are ONE FLESH; where all your needs are met in your husband/wife; and where you are fulfilling all the needs of your husband/wife. Believe Him to rekindle your love for one another; to open up lines of communication; to heal emotional scars; to deliver you and your mate from hidden roots of bitterness, unforgiveness, resentment. Believe Him for a WHOLE marriage!

Parents, take the limits off God concerning your children. As they go to school, believe Him to protect their minds from every evil influence. Believe Him to protect them from all danger. When they are sick, believe God to heal them. If there are problems in your communication with your children, believe God to reveal ways and methods to improve it. If your children are having difficulties in their school work, believe God to help them. If they have emotional problems or difficulties getting along with their brothers or sisters, believe God to heal their emotions.

In your family life, if there seems to be no time for you as a family to enjoy special times together laughing, playing together, worshiping together; believe God to help you find ways to manage your time more effectively so that you can. If there is a constant atmosphere of contention, strife and turmoil, believe God to restore peace and harmony in your home.

Regarding your family’s financial needs…whether it be for food, repairs on your car, new clothes, furniture, money for vacation, money for a college education for your children…take the limits off God. He has planned to supply all your needs. Begin to believe and expect to receive God’s provision for you!



As a widow or widower, you may wonder how it will ever be possible for you to be whole again. When your husband or wife died, you felt as if part of you died. Part of you did die. When you were married, you became ONE FLESH. Now, that loved one is gone. Part of you is missing and there is an emptiness…a void…you cannot explain. There is sorrow and pain that haunts you. You feel as if you have a wound that will not heal. It seems for a time the loneliness and emptiness fade as you become involved with various activities; but when you are quiet and still, the emptiness and pain return to haunt you.

In addition to the loneliness and emptiness you feel, there may be added responsibilities…financial pressures…children to raise alone…important decisions to make. Many times you feel emotionally overloaded, fearful, worried, depressed.

Physically, you may feel exhausted. As the sole provider for your family, you may be working long hours “to make ends meet.” When you come home there are other pressing demands…children to care for, household chores…that draw from your strength.

Financially, you may be overloaded with overdue bills, repairs, taxes, doctor bills. There may be times when you wonder how you are going to make it from one day to the next.

God wants you to be WHOLE…perfect and entire, complete, sound in every way. This is His will for your life!

The woman who pressed her way through the crowd could very well have been a widow. She was alone, with no one to turn to. She was discouraged

and afraid but she knew that if she could somehow touch Jesus, she would be whole.

As a child of God, you are vitally united to Christ. You are “of his flesh, and of his bones” (Ephesians 5:30). Whatever you need is fulfilled in Him. In Christ you are “made full and have come to fullness of life” Colossians 2:10, TAB).

Christ will become to you all that you need and desire. He will fill the pain and emptiness you feel. He will strengthen you. He will supply your needs. Don’t sit back in defeat and discouragement.

Face your family needs and problems knowing God’s will for your life, press through in the Spirit in prayer and fasting, and take the limits off God in your life. Present all your needs to Him and, like the little woman who touched the hem of Jesus’ garment, believe that you will be WHOLE.


At this point in your life, you may wonder how it could ever be possible for you and your family to be whole again. Your home has been torn apart. Your husband or wife is gone. You are alone. Emotionally you are hurting. You are battling rejection, fear, anger, bitterness and unforgiveness.

Your children are confused and afraid. They cannot understand why their mother or father is gone. Emotionally they are torn between their parents. They blame themselves for the divorce or separation. They feel that something is wrong with them and that no one loves or wants them.

In addition to this emotional stress you and your family are experiencing, you may be crushed with added financial responsibilities and worries.

God doesn’t want you to struggle beneath these loads. He doesn’t want your children to suffer. God wants you and your family WHOLE. He wants your memories healed. He wants your fears and doubts relieved. He wants peace, lov6and joy restored to your home.

As you face these problems in your family, recognize how the enemy is attacking you. Don’t accept what is happening to you as the “normal” effects of divorce or separation and think there is nothing you can do.

Knowing that it is God’s will for you and your family to be perfectly whole in every way, make a strong determination that you are not going to allow

Christ will become to you all that you need!

anything or anyone to stop you from touching Jesus for your needs and the needs of your children.

Take time to discuss with your children how they feel about what has happened to their family. Pray with them. Help them to take their hurts, their fears, their problems to God. Teach them, by your example, to trust God to heal their emotions and restore the peace and joy they once had.

Persevere in the Spirit. Openly and honestly pour out your needs and desires to God. Believe Him to heal your broken heart and remove all hatred and bitterness. Ask Him to help you be forgiving toward your husband/wife.

Don’t rely on your own strength…draw your strength from Him. Regardless of how busy or hectic your family schedule is, put God first in your home. In all the decisions and plans you make, put Him first. Make Him “Head” of your household.

Don’t allow your financial needs to overwhelm you. As a family, take ALL your needs to Him…trust Him as Jehovah-Jireh, your Provider!

Whoever you are, whatever family circumstances you face, you can be WHOLE…perfect, complete, sound in every way. It’s up to you! Act on what God has revealed to you in this lesson.

  • Face your family circumstances knowing God’s will.
  • Press your way through and remove every obstacle through fasting and graver.
  • Take the limits off what God wants to do for you and your family.
