Last week I just felt so restless. I couldn’t figure out why, so I went to God about it, and He directed me to read 2 Samuel 12. So cliff notes version, David saw a married woman bathing and inquired about her. She ended up becoming pregnant with his child. David tried to get her spouse to go home and lay with her. Why? To cover up his sin. The man wouldn’t go, so David had him placed in the front line so that he would be killed.
God didn’t like this, so instead of punishing David by striking him down right then and there, He attacked his bloodline. David’s son that was conceived in sin, was taken by the Lord. His other children raped and killed among one another. David had to live with this shame, the loss of a child, and the friction in his family.
Honestly, this bothered me so much that I just sat there, and kept asking why. Why God did You punish this child for his father’s mistakes. And then I realized that we aren’t supposed to be comfortable with sin.
So backtracking just a bit, I think it is important to note that I have been repenting for any inequities in my bloodline. My family actually has a history of child loss. My great grandmother had a stillbirth and lost her twin sister at a very early age.
I want you to take a moment and reflect on the questions they ask you when you go to the doctor. They ask about any problems or concerns that have affected someone in your family, right?
Neither trauma, sin, or death was apart of God’s plan for us. Our actions affect generations to come. Look at how Adam and Eve’s decision has affected us all.
This week, I want you to go before The Lord and repent for any inequities plaguing your bloodline. Don’t let anything be used against you by the devil. Take away the case that he has prepared against your bloodline.
You see, I felt so off last week because God needed me to repent for my ancestors to free up generations to come. I truly believe that God had me type of this message because He needs you to be obedient and free up your bloodline.
