DAY SEVENTEEN - YOU AND YOUR HOUSEHOLD

Throughout scripture there is a continuing expression of God’s desire for whole families to step into covenant with God. God said of Abraham, “For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the Lord, to do justice and judgment; that the Lord may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him.” (Genesis 18:19) God does a work in you as a catalyst — a first fruits of your family. He did not choose you out of your family. He chooses you out FOR your family. 

     Paul preached the gospel to his Philippine jailer saying, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you shall be saved; you and your household.” (Acts 16:31) God honors the desire of His people to see their families in covenant with Him. The Lord beseeched the children of Israel to follow and obey Him, not for their sake individually, but for the sake of their children, as well.  

     “…Choose life, that you and your seed (children) may live.” (Deuteronomy 30:19) He promised, though the psalmist, that delighting in His commands would result in our children being mighty upon the earth. (Psalm 112:1-2) Believe God, that through you, every last unsaved or bound member of your family would have a mighty encounter with God. 


Personal Prayer Point:

“Father, make my life a sign and a wonder to my family. Those who’ve not yet surrendered to You; let them see the undeniable work of Your Hand in my life. Send a laborer to them that carries Your power, and is bold to preach the gospel to them in a way that grips their heart.”

Scripture to Stand On:

(Isaiah 65:1 — Acts 16:31 — Acts 2:39 — Psalm 112:1-2)


Corporate Prayer Point:
