Praying For The Release Of Generational Blessings.
Make no mistake; just as there are generational curses, there are indeed generational blessings. Amazingly, these blessings can be misplaced by the enemy; and as usual, we assist in this misplacing of generational blessings by our ignorance of such blessings.
Indulge me for a few minutes as I draw your attention to this spiritual understanding. I am sure there are many dilemmas you have gotten yourself into throughout your life, and surprisingly somehow, you’ve miraculously gotten out of the consequences that should have followed. In fact, right up to this day, you’re still baffled as to how you could escape the consequences of such circumstances. Could it be that you dodged the penalties that should have followed based on your actions not because of you but because of someone that lived and died before you ever came into being? Well, let’s observe a biblical story that will shed much-needed light on such instances.
Scripture tells us that the Lord was angry with King Solomon because he had turned from serving the Lord God. Thus, King Solomon did not do according to the covenant and statues commanded by God for him to operate by. Such as not serving other gods, which he clearly defied.
As a result of King Solomon’s violation of the covenant between himself and God. God said the following to King Solomon, “Since this is your attitude and you have not kept my covenant and my decrees, which I commanded you, I will most certainly tear the kingdom away from you and give it to one of your subordinates”.
“Nevertheless, for the sake of David, your father, I will not do it during your lifetime. I will tear it out of the hand of your son, Yet I will not tear the whole kingdom from him but will give him one tribe for the sake of David, my servant, and for the sake of Jerusalem, which I have chosen” 1 Kings 11:11-13.
So, do you see folks? Here is scriptural evidence that even though King Solomon had messed up royally and deserved whatever punishment that was coming his way. However, It was because of the blessings of his Father king David that was clearly recognized by God and passed on to king Solomon so much so that God said that he will not distribute king Solomon’s deserved punishment in his lifetime………Wow, thank you, God, for revelation knowledge!
So based on this divine spiritual insight, it must change the way that we pray:
Father God, firstly, I thank you for divine knowledge that, according to your word, will prevent us from being destroyed or held captive according to Hosea 4:6 and Isaiah 5:13. Lord, I am asking you in this day and in days to come to “RELEASE” and cause to fall upon me and my bloodline at the appointed times all generational blessings of our forefathers that came about as a result of their obedience and the honoring of your statues, commandments, and covenants.
Lord, please! Let those generational blessings come alive and speak to the troubles and snares embedded in our destiny designed to hinder us. Lord, remember the commitment and prayers that our ancestors prayed to you concerning our current generation. Father cause their words not to fall to the ground in the name of your son Jesus Christ, Father your word which is spiritual law says in Lamentation 5:7, “Our ancestors sinned and have died, and we are left to bear their punishment.” Father, while I am convinced that this is your law for generational curses. I am also convinced that the opposite is also true. Our ancestors have also obeyed and honored your laws and covenants, and they are now dead. But we that are alive will receive of the blessings they’ve left in place in the mighty and matchless name of your son and our savior Jesus Christ. Amen!
Friends this is revelation knowledge and placing a demand on that which God has revealed. The releasing of such knowledge and spiritual insight is to break down the walls of tradition and fruitless protocols and tap into the genuine power of the living God via his word. Again, as a reminder, “It will be through knowledge that the just shall be delivered!” Proverbs 11:9.
