Lo, children are a heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate. Psalms 127:3-5.
The covenant ensures that you have children; covenant children or seeds. Children are God’s heritage, he has prepared for them a blessing. One of the heritage of sons is to be greater than their father. Arrows shot into the future, not into the past; gifts from God. The converse is a curse but that is the norm in some society. That is why many bear their father’s name with Junior or II added for distinction. The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is one and the same;the next is always greater than the former generation. That is the covenant norm. Isaac is not Abraham Jnr; his covenant path is well defined. This is the difference between natural and covenant children Every covenant child is programmed to be greater than his progenitors. This is the heritage of the covenant & the God of Abraham, Isaac & Jacob.
“The blessings of thy father have prevailed above the blessings of my progenitors unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills: they shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from his brethren.”Genesis 49:26.
Many have laid down wealth and riches for the next generation not blessing. Very few have blessed the next generation; blessing is not assumed it is covenanted. It is not passive, it is active. Whatever houses, landed properties & bank accounts transfered from Abraham to Isaac was a nothing compared to the blessing. Apart from possesions, they obtained the blessing; go for the blessing. The blessing was successtuly transfered throughout their generation. The former always blessing the latter; children released into the future. Those that reserves wealth and riches only as gifts to the next generation lay up curses instead of blessing. Those that bless the latter always shoot them forward as covenant children; arrows in the hands of a mighty man, wealth and riches remain in their house. Bless your children; the covenant is the surety for generational Blessing. American citizenship is not the guarantee for generational impact. Share the blessing, it is a commandement; terminate the flow of curses.
” Praise ye the Lord. Blessed is the man that feareth the Lord, that delighteth greatly in his commandments. His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed. Wealth and riches shall be in his house:and his righteousness endureth for ever.”Psalms 112:1-3.
