I cannot imagine my life without my family! Living in a fallen world where I see families falling apart one by one, marriage covenants broken daily, parents abandoning their children and sin and selfishness being at the top of the household list, my heart breaks! I am a product of such sin and selfishness and years ago I realized how quickly generational bondage can lead to generational sin.
We must take a stand against the enemy my friends and say, "Not my marriage or my family will you have". Years ago I sensed such an awakening to the "reaping" of such generational bondage and sin that had been sown in my own life. I then made a vow to God that with His help I would STAND firm against Satan and I would make a difference in my marriage, in the lives of my children and future grandchildren.
Beth Moore, author of many Bible Studies said it best:
I believe we do not think about nor pray enough for our descendants---our children, grandchildren, and their children. Our actions, both good and bad, will have consequences after we are absent from this earth. While we are enjoying the bliss of heaven and the mercy of God's grace, our grandchildren still could be reaping painful consequences of situations we've sown. Or, on the other hand, they could be enjoying the benefits of faithful lives by lived by great-grandparents whom they've never know.
So just as the President, formerly, General Eisenhower sitting at his desk in the Oval Office soon after the war said, "THE BUCK STOPS HERE, I said it too! I knew that I did not want to pass down to my children and their children the same traits that had been passed down to me!
The Buck Stops here simply means that YOU are RESPONSIBLE now and cannot blame what is happening on someone else!
I love my family enough that I do want to make a difference in their lives and the lives of my grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Wouldn't it be nice to just think that one day even our great-great grandchildren will be reaping the "GOD difference" that we made in our own lives?
