Summary
Chris uses the analogy of Horizons
to point out that each of us has ideas of what is possible and where we are going. The scope of our horizon gives a measure of where we might be able to go. The broader the horizon the greater the potential.
Families can function at three levels of vision - or horizon.

Natural Horizons. 
Natural horizons describe the concepts of family that are popular in our society. Most families do not progress beyond this point of vision.

Divine Horizons.
Divine horizons describe the concepts of family that God gives us in the Bible.  Chris provides a comprehensive exploration of the Divine Horizons, giving insight into God’s view of family.
The Divine Horizons explores four key truths:
     God Chose Family
     God Takes Family Seriously 
     God Works with Families ..... and
     God Put You in Your Family.

These chapters investigate such issues as the seriousness of our family connections, the impact of family blessings and curses and the impact of your domestic life in forming who you are.

Faith Horizons.
In the final section of his book, Chris turns our attention to what he calls Faith Horizons. He reveals that even for Christians there is great scope for wonderful family blessings, if we will only step out in faith.
Spiritual Parenting is also discussed, showing that many people, other than our biological parents have a “parenting” role in our lives.
His explanation of Standing in the Gap provides practical wisdom that will help rescue families, including his excellent “Steps to Release” which have been the mainstay of his personal ministry for nearly 30 years.
Keeping Family In Balance is the final chapter, to ensure that people don’t over-emphasize family. While family needs to be rediscovered it should not be idolized or given a priority that God does not give it. Chris wisely prompts us to keep family in balance, especially while we are trying to explore it in a new way of Destiny'.

Here is a sample from one of the lessons in 'THE JOURNEY TO FAMILY HORIZONS'.
God’s purpose for your life may require that you learn lessons others do not need to learn. In some families children gain added maturity and care from having a disabled sibling or similar challenge in their home.

Looking at the particular challenges you confronted in your childhood what sort of preparation may God have been working in your life?
____________________________________________________
____________________________________________________
Suggested Prayer: “Lord God, I realise that You created me for Your purposes. I don’t know Your exact purpose in my life and so I cannot see how You have been preparing me. Forgive me that I have resisted and reacted to Your preparation work in my life. If I have frustrated Your plan, or even disqualified myself from Your purposes I ask You to forgive me. Help me learn the lessons I should have learned and become the person You wanted me to become so I can achieve the purposes You wanted me to accomplish. And Lord, help me be a good coach to my family members, enabling them to respond properly to the challenges You give them, so they will be godly seed and complete the purposes You have for each of their lives too. I ask this in the lovely name of Jesus. Amen.”

Now it’s time for some encouragement.
The Bible teaches that everything we encounter can work in with the other things happening in our life to create something good. That does not mean that everything which we encounter is good, but everything is able to be woven into a good process which brings a good outcome.
Romans 8:28 “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”

Suggested Prayer: “Lord, I find it hard to believe that evil things can produce good results. But I choose to trust Your Word and to believe You. I give You all the bad things that happened in my childhood and I ask You to work good out of those things. I love You and so I know You will produce a good outcome. May You be glorified in me, even through those things that I wish hadn’t happened. And may I give testimony to Your goodness as You turn the worst parts of my life into jewels for Your glory. I ask these things in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
