This morning, I just want to encourage husbands and fathers out there.
There is a need to stand in the place God has placed you not necessarily for now, but for the sake of the future.
There are certain negative traits you must have noticed in your lineage as a man. Failure to address these traits will only create more issues for your children when they come.
For some, it may be a health challenge. For others, it may be character issues. Whatever it is, you should consciously and deliberately deal with it once and for all and break the cycle over your family.
Ruth 1:3, 5 (KJV)
3 And Elimelech Naomi’s husband died; and she was left, and her two sons.
5 And Mahlon and Chilion died also both of them; and the woman was left of her two sons and her husband.
Here, Elimelech died in a strange land. We were not told what killed him, but his two sons also died in a strange land, probably under the same conditions or different conditions.
That tells me that there are battles we as Fathers must fight, so as to exempt our children from certain happenstances.
The truth of the matter is that the battle you do not conquer as a man, your children will fight it. If they don’t conquer as well, their own children picks it up from there and the chain continues.
This leaves the children disadvantaged because you will agree with me that fighting a battle you know little or nothing about its origin could be a herculean task.
Abraham denied his wife. Decades later, Isaac did the same.
David loved women. Solomon took his love for women to the next level.
Abraham’s wife was barren. Isaac’s wife was equally barren. It even extended to Jacob.
Jacob deceived his Father. His sons deceived him too years later.
These are few examples from the scriptures on how issues can linger on from generation to generation if not properly dealt with.
Have you noticed certain tendencies in your family? Don’t keep mum about it.
Lamentations 3:27 (NET) It is good for a man to bear the yoke while he is young.
That you will bear the yoke is not debatable, the timing now depends on you. It is however to your advantage to follow the timing recommended by the scriptures.
David fought so many wars that Solomon didn’t need to lift up a sword. As Fathers, we can equally secure the future of our children in the place of prayers so they won’t need to go through what we are going through.
A good man leaves an inheritance for his children, not unconquered battles.
I don’t know how long you’ve been married, but I believe you can start settling issues in the spirit realm from now.
It was in David’s old age that he made provisions for Solomon to build the temple. You too can make provisions for your children now in the spirit realm, as we know that the spiritual controls the physical.
Get into the place of prayer.
Secure the future of your seeds.
Fight that battle now, so that your children can do something else with their time.
