I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. The blessed word that God has given for you today is from the book of Psalms 112:2. “His Descendants will be mighty on earth. The generation of the upright will be blessed. “
From the above context we learn that God blesses the descendants of the Righteous. In the above verse we see that “His seed shall be mighty upon earth,” His Seed refers to the children of the Upright, This means that the successive generations of God fearing men shall be strong and influential in society, and in the latter days they shall have dominion. The true seed of the righteous are those who follow them in their virtues, even as believers who are the seed of Abraham, because they imitate his faith; and these are the real heroes, the truly great men among the sons of Adam. It must be admitted that the children of the godly are not all prosperous, nor all famous. Nevertheless, he who fears God, and leads a holy life, doing the best he can for the future advancement of his house; and, taking matters for all in all, the children of the righteous man commence life with greater advantages than others, and are more likely to succeed in it, in the best and highest sense.
The generation of the upright shall be blessed. The race of sincere, devout, righteous men, is kept up from age to age, and ever abides under the blessing of God. The godly may be persecuted, but they shall not be forsaken; the curses of men cannot deprive them of the blessing of God, for the words of Balaam are true, “He hath blessed, and I cannot reverse it.” Their children also are under the special care of heaven, and as a rule it shall be found that they inherit the divine blessing. Honesty and integrity are better cornerstones for an honourable house than mere cunning and avarice, or even talent and push. To fear God and to walk uprightly is higher nobility than blood or birth can bestow.
If anyone should desire to leave behind him a flourishing posterity, let him not think to accomplish it by accumulating heaps of gold and silver, and leaving them behind him; but by rightly teaching his descendants, to recognise God and to serve Him; and commending his children to the guardianship and protection of God. For God says, the generation of the upright their family; their children — shall be blessed. Very few believe it, yet is it true, that those who walk upright before God , hath better fruits than witty projecting and cunning catching. It is probable that Lot thought of enriching his family when he chose the fertile plains of wicked Sodom, yet the event was very different; but Abraham on the other hand, “feared the Lord, and delighted greatly in his commandments,” and his descendants were “mighty upon earth.” And thus it will generally be, with the posterity of those who imitate the father of the faithful; and their disinterested and liberal conduct shall prove, in the event, a far preferable inheritance laid up for their children, than gold and silver, houses and lands, would have obtained.
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, Many people who are reading this message may be going through tribulation, and affliction, and they sometimes wish to end up their life. They think what is the use of living ? They consider themselves as failures. They find it hard to live because of the pressure mounting upon them. Especially those who suffer from huge debts. If you lose hope, just because of debts, then the death of the Lord Jesus Christ on the cross of Calvary will become meaningless. Jesus died that you might live. And he became poor that you might become rich. Surrender your lives to Him and He will change your situation. Walk uprightly before the Lord. Give up all cheap and ungodly behaviour and always put on the garment of righteousness. Consider the poor and the widow. Be humble and polite with others. People from outside should recognize you as a peculiar person separated for God and His Glory, then you and your descendants will be blessed upon the earth. God bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Father we thank you for helping us to understand that we need to walk uprightly in order that our children might be blessed. We thank God for His promise that our descendants will be blessed. And that they will be mighty on the earth. There cannot be a greater joy than to see our children being blessed upon this earth. Help us to grow them in the right way and in the fear of God.
