Preparing to Cleave Daily: Day 13

Family Patterns
Scripture Passages: 1 Kings 11:1-13
Solomon started out well, but the negative family pattern of sexual immorality soon caught up with him and he sinned against God and lost the throne.
Many have been unable to realise God’s plan for their lives because of negative patterns that make them sin against God and end their journey in regret instead of pleasure. Look around your family, what patterns do you see? The only way not to repeat an evil pattern is to terminate it on the altar of prayer.
Prayer: Father, by the finished work at Calvary, I decree positive patterns in my family in Jesus’ name.

Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 13

Scripture Passage: Genesis 14:8-16
Training Must Precede Empowerment.
Abraham had a lot of servants in his home but he armed only his trained servants when he went out to battle. He used a trained team and he won the battle. If you desire victory as a leader, then you must train your followers and training must always precede empowerment. Never promote or give power to anyone that you have not trained, for the promotion of fools is always their destruction. If you empower people without first training them, you have released them to self-destruction.
However, charity begins at home so you must seek to train and add value to yourself before you set out to train another.
Prayer: Father, help me to see the importance of training in the pursuit of vision.
