What do you desire to see in the lives of your family and loved ones? You have the power to orchestrate them to a great extent through your blessings. God has given you a mouth with which you decide what happens in your life and lives of your loved ones, especially your family. Wisdom demands that you use it consciously and wisely. This article explains the power of blessing your family.
Then Isaac trembled exceedingly, and said, “Who? Where is the one who hunted game and brought it to me? I ate all of it before you came, and I have blessed him- and indeed he shall be blessed” – Genesis 27:33 (NKJV).
By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to come – Hebrews 11:20 (NKJV).
Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit – Proverbs 18:21 (NKJV).
Life and death are in the power of the tongue, and wise people use it to enjoy the life in it. You are to a great extent product of words spoken over your life yesteryears by you and your loved ones who had authority over your life, mostly your physical and spiritual parents. At the same time, your tomorrow will be determined by the words spoken over your life today. Therefore, there is need for you to consciously choose your words and refute negative words spoken over your life. When you have an understanding of this, you will need to also apply it over your loved ones.
Many Christians by the grace of God are now consciously keeping their mouth from speaking death over their families, but are yet to consciously speak life over them. Those who love it will eat the fruit of it. Choose to consciously bless your loved ones. Take a few minutes to bless them in line with the Lord’s words daily, speaking into their future. You shall have what you say.
We are co-creators with God. As you say in the Creator’s ears so shall He do unto you. God created the universe with His words and you are to enforce the Lord’s will for your life with your words too. God’s thoughts for you are not of evil but good, to give you a future and an expected end, so speak His thoughts concerning you into existence. The power of the tongue cannot be over emphasized.
Isaac blessed Jacob and he told Esau that Jacob shall indeed be blessed. When he was blessing Esau, he still pronounced him a servant to Jacob just as he had told Jacob that his brethren will serve him (Genesis 27: 37, 40). Isaac blessed his children concerning things to come (Hebrews 11:20). Israel is still enjoying this blessing up till today. They are masters in whatever they are doing. As their father had said in the ears of God so has He done unto them.
What are you saying in the ears of the Father concerning your children or your loved ones? If you say good things over their lives, you reap good things as well and if you say evil so you get. Also, if you say nothing you get nothing. I charge you today, to search out God’s promises for His children and consciously declare them over your loved ones daily and you will see what becomes of them in the future. There is power in your tongue, use it to your advantage and eat the fruit thereof.
Therefore, what do you want to see manifested in your family, start today to declare it and it shall be established unto you. Even, if it seems delayed in materializing, don’t stop blessing them, don’t get tired, for you’ll surely reap the fruits of your lips if you faint not.
