ACHIEVE GREATNESS WITH YEMI AND BIMBO DAVIDS
Day 10 October 2019
Scriptural Reference: “Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right, honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise 😉 That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth” – Ephesians 6:1-3
Responsibility is the price of greatness. The seeds of today are the harvest of tomorrow. We have a spiritual instruction as re-emphasized by Apostle Paul in the above scripture.
Honouring our parents gives us major access to long life and prosperity. Verse 3 says ‘that it may be well with you and you may live long’. This is a jackpot promise because some people live longer but live miserably.
Your reaction to your parents determines how God reacts to your finances. If we want to live long and also enjoy it, then we must decide to walk in obedience to God’s word. I think that is the main reason why the devil goes all out to tamper with the parent/child relationship. The devil knows that walking in this instruction will lead to such amazing blessings, so he seeks to disorganize rolex replica watches the joyful flow of that relationship. We must become smarter than the devil by structuring our relationship with our parents in accordance with scriptural prescriptions for the blessing of longevity and prosperity.
It is not strange to hear believers blessing themselves with the slogan ‘it is well’. Well, I really hope it is truly well. I am not sure it is well until we do what it takes for things to be well.
Daily digest: Read Genesis 9:19 – 27; Colossians 3:20-21
Prayer: O God, I thank you for my dearest parents who have loved me and cared for me. Be with them and surround them with your presence. Open their hearts to trust your constant care. Help me to show how much I appreciate them. Forgive me for the times I’ve made them sad. Bless them with good health and happiness. Amen.
