Over the past thirty years a lot of children were born to parents of this church. All these children grew up in church and they were taught the Word of God. As they grew to adult children they left their homes and wandered away from the church. I have been praying for these kids for a lot of years. They are all good kids. I’m drawn to the squirrelly ones because they remind me of myself when I was their age. This week, the Lord gave me a Scripture that I never fully understood.
Isaiah 60: 4 Lift up your eyes and see all they gather themselves together, they come to you: your sons shall come and your daughters will be nursed by your side.
The Holy Spirit is giving us a prophetic word concerning the restoration of our families. When I read the part about our daughters nursing by our side, I pictured babies having mother’s milk. The Lord corrected my view of this Scripture. This is the correct way to read this passage:
Your sons and daughters will come to you and sit beside you and be nourished with the Word of God.
The sons and daughters don’t need mother’s milk they need Father’s Milk. They need the Word of God so they can grow into the saint God has predestined them to be. In order for this prophecy to be fulfilled the fathers and mothers must lay claim to it. The devil has lured our children away with all kinds of gimmicks, things that most of them regret dabbling with. As we believe and pray, the Holy Ghost will woo them back to our sides with the love of God. All of our kids need to know they can always come back to Father’s house. The love of God is much greater than the lure of the world.
Malachi 4:5 I will send you Elijah the prophet before the day of the coming of the Lord. Vs. 6 And he will turn the heart of the fathers to the children and heart of the children to their fathers overriding the curse.
I don’t know if this is actually Elijah or someone with his anointing, but he will be empowered to restore families. If the end of the last days are at hand then we are in this prophetic time of restoration. Remember, God has the power to rebuke the seed eater for our sake. When we submit to what God tells us, He will do what He promised to the obedient. We can learn something valuable from the story in the Bible of the prodigal son.
Luke 15:17 And when he came to himself, he said, in my father’s house he has bread to spare and I perish with hunger.
I believe our children will come back to rational thinking and recall how well off they were at home. I believe the Holy Spirit will remind them and then woo them back to be nourished along side of the parents. I will not give up praying and believing until all our kids are where they belong. They have all had mother’s milk, but now it’s time to have Father’s milk whereby they can finish growing. So let’s keep praying in agreement and holdfast to our confession, God says they’re coming home.
Jesus Redeemed me from the curse, no poverty, no lack in my house.
Wealth and riches in my home, the devil is rebuked for my sake.
Father daily loads me with benefits, He takes pleasure in my increase.
I love being redeemed,
and I give my Lord all the glory.
We are about to embark on the greatest adventure and outpouring of God’s Spirit! This month the Holy Spirit is asking us to examine ourselves/take inventory so as God’s Vessels we can take our part and place in the Body of Christ!
Scriptures to meditate on:
Hebrews 12:1 Therefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily besets us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.
Psalm 26:4 Lord you can scrutinize me. Refine my heart and probe my every thought. Put me to the test and you will find it is true.
2 Cor 10:6 It is written, and having a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.
1 Peter 4:17 For judgement begins at the household of God; and if it begins with us, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God?
Psalm 139: 23, 24 Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me of unbelief and lead me in the way everlasting.
2 Timothy 2:4 No soldier when in service gets entangled in the enterprises of (civilian) life: his aim is to satisfy and please the one who enlisted him (God)! DO ALL FOR THE GLORY OF GOD!
