“Blessed is everyone who fears the LORD, who walks in his ways, you shall eat the fruit of the labour of your hands; you shall be blessed, and it shall be well with you. your wife will be like fruitful vine within your house; your children will like olive shoots around your table” (Psalm 128:1-3)ESV
There is double blessing for those who serve the Lord; Their blessings extend to members of their family. The word of God says it shall be well with you; also your wife and children benefit from God’s blessings resulting from your reverence to the LORD. Imagine what will happen if you encourage your family and motivate them to serve the Lord also. It will result in bandwagon of blessings.
In Psalm 127:3, the Scripture says, ‘Behold children are the heritage of the LORD, and the fruit of the womb a reward’ ‘Blessed is everyone who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with the enemies in the gate’ (Psalm 128:5)ESV.
Do you see your children as a burden or as a blessing?
If you train up your children well, they will be a defence for you with time. They will care for you and shield you from societal ill that is common now in many places.
It is important that you give your children both spiritual and physical support. You should provide inspiration for them and teach them to look up to God for direction and help. Don’t leave them to learn the basic things of life from other people who you don’t know. There are many of such all over the community.
You must never harass your children; they may become strangers to you and even run away from you and your house. You may lose them to drugs, alcohol and immorality. This is because they will seek comfort from those things.
It is important to know that children, no matter their gender, are blessings from the Lord. If you reverence the Lord, you must appreciate his gifts. You must not be involved in domestic violence. There are legal consequences and it is socially unacceptable. Don’t hit your spouse for any reason and avoid bullying them.
It is important to give attention to learning how to take care of your home. Ignorance is deadly; avoid it.
Jesus is Lord
Your wellbeing is important to God. He creates opportunities that can change your life situations. It is important that you connect with such landmarks, as they come in different forms. God does not despise anyone, he want you to succeed in life. You can read about this in the following scriptures – Job 36:5 – 13.
“Behold, God is mighty, but despises no one; He is mighty in strength of understanding.
He does not preserve the life of the wicked, but gives justice to the oppressed.
He does not withdraw His eyes from the righteous; for He has seated them forever,
and they are exalted. And if they are bound in fetters, held in the cords of affliction,
then He tells them their work and their transgressions—
that they have acted defiantly.
He also opens their ear to instruction, and commands that they turn from iniquity.
If they obey and serve Him,
they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures. But if they do not obey, they shall perish by the sword, and they shall die without knowledge. “But the hypocrites in heart store up wrath; they do not cry for help when He binds them”

You are limited by the thoughts of your heart and the words of your mouth. Be careful!
It may happen now or later but it certainly happens that what you allow to dominate your thoughts and talk about especially concerning your life and your situations are just going to become your reality. The scripture says in Mathew 9:920-22,
“And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment:
For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole.
But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.”
This woman concluded in her heart what she wanted out of her encounter with Jesus and she got it.
It is important that you monitor your thoughts and your words. Don’t say things you have not thought through. Watch what people say about you and reject every evil word spoken to you or about you.
The word of God says:
“No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.” Isaiah 54:18 (KJV)
Jesus is our righteousness and evil words of people against us will amount to nothing and will be frustrated. This is our heritage.
God bless you.
Then the Lord met Balaam, and put a word in his mouth, and said, “Go back to Balak, and thus you shall speak.” So he came to him, and there he was, standing by his burnt offering, and the princes of Moab were with him. And Balak said to him, “What has the Lord spoken?”
Then he took up his oracle and said: “Rise up, Balak, and hear!
Listen to me, son of Zippor!
“God is not a man, that He should lie,
Nor a son of man, that He should repent.
Has He said, and will He not do?
Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?
Behold, I have received a command to bless;
He has blessed, and I cannot reverse it.
“He has not observed iniquity in Jacob, nor has He seen wickedness in Israel.
The Lord his God is with him, and the shout of a King is among them.
God brings them out of Egypt; He has strength like a wild ox. “For there is no sorcery against Jacob, nor any divination against Israel. It now must be said of Jacob and of Israel, ‘Oh, what God has done!’ Look, a people rises like a lioness, And lifts itself up like a lion; It shall not lie down until it devours the prey, and drinks the blood of the slain.” Then Balak said to Balaam, “Neither curse them at all, nor bless them at all!” So Balaam answered and said to Balak, “Did I not tell you, saying, ‘All that the Lord speaks, that I must do’?” Numbers. 23:16-26
