Preparing to Cleave Daily: Day 2

Scripture Passage: Genesis 3:1-19
Family Patterns
Once again it gives me great pleasure to welcome you into the year 2015. A brand new year is God’s way of saying, “have another go.” Therefore make the most of it.
Our focus over the next few days will be family patterns because I believe that family patterns are in many cases the reason a woman is unable to marry or stay married. In today’s scripture passage, God cursed Adam and Eve as a result of their disobedience. That curse created a negative family pattern which has travelled through generations and led to the destruction of many a child of God because they neither understood it nor knew how to deal with it.
Consider: What are the negative patterns in your family?
Prayer: Father, I ask for mercy for every sin that has brought a curse and negative pattern of events into my family.

Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 2

Scripture Passage: Luke 6:12-16, Matthew 12:25, Psalm 133:1-3
The Vision is Accomplished by People
Once again it gives me great pleasure to welcome you into the year 2015. A brand new year is God’s way of saying, “have another go.” Therefore make the most of it.
Today’s focus is people, because no vision can be accomplished without people. Therefore the ability to get along with people is a great requirement for everyone in leadership. The more you get along with people the more successful you will be as a leader. There is a blessing in harmony but disunity fosters stagnation.
Jesus required people to fulfil His vision and I believe one factor that helped Him get along with people was prayer. He prayed before choosing His disciples and He continued to pray for those He’d chosen.
Prayer: Father, give me the grace to get along with those you bring my way.
