Recently, my wife was attending to my younger daughter’s health. While she soaked in the pain, she kept shouting; “Jesus! Jesus!! Jesus!!!” I was glad that she knew nothing else to call than Jesus! That’s the power of a godly heritage.

Friend, the force of your kingdom heritage is an important factor in your success in life and destiny. “And that from a child you have known the holy scriptures, which are able to make you wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ” (2 Timothy 3:15). Timothy’s success was greatly helped by the strength of his Christian, trans generational heritage (2 Timothy 1:5).

God remains “the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob”. He wants to perpetuate His covenant and dealings to the next generations (Psalms 78:4-6). Even if you don’t have a godly heritage to rely on, you can begin one. Rather than being swamped in the negative flow of your lineage, you can be the progenitor of a godly one. You can stop the curse and start the blessing (Galatians 3:13-14)!

Covenants (positive or negative) become stronger in the succeeding generation (Acts 3:25). Your job is to abort the negative and allow the positive. As a parent, don’t only send your children to nice and expensive schools, getting them home lesson teachers etc. Also invest in their walk with God; their kingdom training (Deuteronomy 6:6-9).

The force of your kingdom heritage should be so strong that you cannot be brainwashed even in a strange land (Daniel 1:3-8). What will happen to you or your kids when abroad or far away from home? Are they well loaded with kingdom forces that would make them stand strong with little or no supervision? Just like God, the devil is after your seed (Genesis 3:15, Malachi 2:15). What you don’t teach them now would soon show!
