Preparing to Cleave Daily: Day 12

Family Patterns
Scripture Passages: Genesis 12:1-3, Galatians 3:13-14
God called Abraham out of his father’s house and promised him a blessing. A curse generated negative patterns and a blessing will generate positive patterns. Jesus died to link us to the Abrahamic blessing and positive family patterns.
Prayer: Father, by the finished work at Calvary, I decree positive patterns in my family in Jesus’ name.

Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 12

Scripture Passage: Genesis 11:1-8
Only a United Team Can Make Progress.
Jesus taught that a house divided against itself cannot stand, or make progress. The men in the scripture passage initially had one language, which symbolises unity. As long as they had one language they made progress. God acknowledged that they would be able to accomplish the task because they were united. However, when He scattered their language, disunity appeared where there had once been unity and the result was that they abandoned the work. They could no longer make progress.
The lesson here is this; unity fosters peace which leads to progress and disunity fosters chaos which leads to stagnation. As a leader, it is your responsibility to ensure unity.
Prayer: Father, make me an advocate for peace and unity.
