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
Opportunity to travel to places I grew up is usually exciting. From the four storey buildings with penthouse filled city by the river bustling with activity to the hinterlands with palatial mansions hidden by the trees and sparse population, One thing is obvious, housing is a great investment and a source of pride; from the old to the new. Palatial mansions over-grown by shrubs reminiscent of former affluence. One question comes to mind, does anyone live there? What a waste? Even if the owners have passed on, where are his children? The cost of maintaining the houses are enormous, or better still unbearable. Arrows shot into the past, an inheritance but not à blessing. This shall not be the portion of your children. A covenant child is programmed to be greater than his forbears not less.
“Behold, I and the children whom the Lord hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion.”Isaiah 8:18.
Covenant children are given, natural children are Born. The covenant gives rise to children that are signs and wonders. Arrows in the hand of a mighty God, shot into the future. You will never be ashamed of your children! The covenant does not only make great, it makes your children greater. Every greatness that swallows up the portion of the future is not of God. The God of Abraham gave Isaac & Jacob was also given; covenant seeds The covenant is the short cut from generational shame and reproach to greatness. Houses, riches are not gifts for the next generation but a covenant with God. You shall indeed rest in peace happy and fulfilled, your seed is greater. My quiver shall overflow with covenant children; Blessed & multiplied.
“That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.”Genesis 22:17-18.
