This morning, I bring you a word from the Lord. It’s a three-pronged blessing for you! Receive those prophetic words and believe them for you and your family. Every time God wants to bless you, He sends His word. Get ready to receive those words this morning!
Here is the first one:
1. The Blessing of your Progeny
That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; that our daughters may be as corner stones, polished after the similitude of a palace:
Psa 144:12 (KJV)
Your sons and daughters are going to be blessed. They will not be cut short in the midst of their days. They will be healthy. They will grow up in their prime. Your daughter will be as cornerstones, that is polished.
They will not be troublesome or be strange children.
2. The Blessing Of Provision
That our garners may be full, affording all manner of store: that our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our streets:
Psa 144:13 (KJV)
You will not lack. Insufficiency will not be your ally. Your garners will be full. There will be an increase and constant supply. Everything you lay your hands upon, you will prosper therein. This week, God will initiate a non-ending event that will translate into a long-lasting provision for you in Jesus name.
3. The Blessing of Protection
That our oxen may be strong to labour; that there be no breaking in, nor going out; that there be no complaining in our streets.
Psa 144:14 (KJV)
You will be shielded. No evil will befall you. God will surround you. Even in this time of insecurity that pervades our milieu, God will protect and shield you. You will not be a victim of the times. He will make you a victor at all times. Victory will be your portion at all times.
CONFESSION FOR THE DAY I believe and I receive these words.
PRAYER FOR THE DAY Pray those words into your family.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY Ps 144:12(MSG) Make our sons in their prime like sturdy oak trees, Our daughters as shapely and bright as fields of wildflowers.
ACTION PLAN FOR THE DAY Pray those words into your marriage
I saw on our Facebook page a comment where somebody said that all men are liars. She said there are no truthful men. It was the same thing Elijah said at a time when he told God that all the people are compromised except him, but God told him there are still 7,000 men who have not bowed to Baal!
The truth is that you will always attract what you believe. A person’s life will always move in the direction of his most dominant thoughts. If you believe all men are liars, that is who will be attracted. It is one of the basic laws. If you believe there are faithful men and there are, you will be found of such people.
I understand a bit where the lady that commented might be coming from. It is possible she has had several negative experiences with men and I feel for her. But you see, experiences will not nullify the truth of God’s word!
This is the lesson here, never allow your experiences to overshadow the truth of God’s word in your life!
1. The man I am not in love with 2. The man that tells lies
3. The man that is unfaithful Well, I have heard some ladies say things like every man is unfaithful. There is no man that doesn’t have other ladies out there. That is not true and that is a justification and encouragement of adultery. That concept is from the pit of hell.
If all men cheat on their wives, then what have we been teaching? Where is the place of the delivering power of God? Where is the place of renewal of mind by God’s word?
I don’t cheat on my wife and I don’t have any lady out there and I know I am not alone!
If I were a single lady, I will run away from a guy who is already rehearsing for adultery during a supposed courtship. I will not accommodate or manage iniquity.
But pastor, if I am too hard, will I get a spouse? You see, it is not about being hard; you shouldn’t be hard on anybody because you are not perfect yourself, but you should seek to obey God! That’s all. Follow God! I am sure God does not want you involved with a guy who wants to marry you and who has still has other girlfriends and you know! God is not in that kind of arrangement!
4. The man that doesn’t love God If I were a single lady, I will not get involved with a man that doesn’t love God. If he doesn’t love God and has no regard for God, it will invariably affect you one way or the other.
But Pastor, what if I want to change him? You are not a “changer” You are not the Holy Spirit who convicts! Listen to me, there is something about a family that loves God.
Now, I have to balance this out here. What about those that are already married? Pastor, are you saying I should leave my spouse? NO! Is there still hope for things to be made right? YES!
There could even be situations where you got married as an unbeliever. Now you got born again. Do you leave your spouse? No! You step into intercession and the place of prayers to trust God for your spouse as well. And believe me, God will answer a heartfelt prayer for your spouse, because God is not only interested in individuals, He is also interested in families.
Never give up on God, because God will never give up on you!
CONFESSION FOR THE DAY I know how to love correctly.
PRAYER FOR THE DAY Lord, help me not to fall in love with the wrong person. Teach me when to run away.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY Don’t turn your back on wisdom, for she will protect you. Love her, and she will guard you. Prov 4:6 (NLT)
ACTION PLAN FOR THE DAY Take an inventory of your love life. Run away when neccessary.
