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 the course of 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 baffle as to how was it possible for you to escape the consequences of such circumstances. Could it be that you escaped 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 turn 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 him 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 was coming his way, it was because of the blessings of his Father king David that were 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 life time………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 blood line at the appointed times all the 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 now generation and 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, in that 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 a 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.
