Open Heaven 6 June 2020: [Saturday] – Baby King?

BABY KING? – Saturday June 6th 2020
Memorise: Woe to thee, O land, when thy king is a child, and thy princes eat in the morning! Ecclesiastes 10:16
Read: Ecclesiastes 10:16-18 (KJV)
16 Woe to thee, O land, when thy king is a child, and thy princes eat in the morning!
17 Blessed art thou, O land, when thy king is the son of nobles, and thy princes eat in due season, for strength, and not for drunkenness!
18 By much slothfulness the building decayeth; and through idleness of the hands the house droppeth through.

Bible in one year: Proverbs 13-15, Hymn: Sing hymn 25
In the previous study, the father was rightly described as the priest of the home. He is however, also the king of the home. What a father does will have an effect on every member of his family. As a father, you cannot afford to act like a child. From our memory verse, we see that it is the family that would suffer for the childlessness of their king (the father).

Remember that everything you do is an example for your children. When you drink or send your son to buy you cigarettes, you are already introducing him to that lifestyle. When your children see you having an affair with a strange woman, you are sowing a terrible seed in their hearts. The way you talk to their
mother is probably how your sons will talk to their wives too. The low self-esteem of their mother due to how you treat her will probably become the self-esteem of your daughters too.

As mentioned earlier, you are the priest of the home; when the priest is spiritually asleep, God help that home! There are some demonic issues that a father need only issue a command for them to disappear, but if he is a spiritual baby, such issues would linger. As a father, how often do you pray for and on your children? Are you deliberate about teaching them the word of God?

Another reason for you to watch your spiritual life is that children could reap the harvest of the spiritual seeds their fathers have sown. In 1st 11:34, God softened Solomon’s punishment for misbehaving because of David his father.

Open Heaven 6 June 2020 Saturday: Reflection

“Howbeit I will not take the whole kingdom out of his hand: but I will make him prince all the days of his life for David my servant’s sake whom I chose, because he kept my commandments and my status.”

Jonathan on the other hand was a good boy, but he partook in the punishment of his father and died a shameful death. I pity any child who has a baby as a father and I pray that God will rescue such children from any danger that their father’s ignorance or ‘childlessness’ can cause them in mighty name of Jesus.
Are you a mature father or a baby one.
