I declare in Jesus’ name, the Lord wants to bless my family for generations to come. My walk paves the way for my family. I will stay on the Lord’s path, continually renewing my covenant with Him. I am faithful of the things unseen because they are eternal.
YOUR OTHER SIDE OF THE MOUNTAIN
Have you lost hope that your kids or grandkids will get saved? Take heart!
My good friend, Pastor Jim Maxwell, preached a sermon called “The Other Side of the Mountain.” In it, he gave an amazing account of a blessing that comes from the heart of King David. That blessing that was inside David, outlived him and went to his kids.
Fifty-six years after David made a special covenant with God, the Bible says that his son, Solomon, who was now king, had turned from the Lord. Now, this was the man God had given everything to – the holy city of Jerusalem, the chosen people, great wisdom and the privilege of building the temple. Solomon had turned away and God was upset!
In 1 Kings 11:12 God tells Solomon, “I ought to kill you and devastate your kingdom, but I will not because of your daddy, David.” That same covenant rang true 27 years later when Solomon’s grandson, Abijah, turned from the Lord, and 315 years after the death of David when God delivered King Hezekiah and Jerusalem from the Assyrians – all because of a covenant with David.
If you remain in covenant with Him, I believe God will do the same thing for you. Stand in the gap for your children and grandchildren. Give eternal life to 1,000 generations. Love Jesus and keep His commands. David’s faith outlived his life. So will yours!
“Therefore know that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments;” – Deuteronomy 7:9
