Preparing to Cleave Daily: Day 14

Family Patterns
Scripture Passages: 1 Kings 2:12-25
In today’s scripture passage, we see the negative pattern of sexual immorality take its toll on Adonijah, the son of King David. He lusted after the beautiful woman Abishag who had kept David warm in his last days and asked for her to be given to him as a wife. The consequence of his action was his untimely demise. He is the second son of David to lose his life over a failure to control his lust for a woman. There were beautiful women in the kingdom and he could have had any but he chose the one who had been his father’s concubine, to his detriment.
Family patterns were the undoing of many in the Bible and continue in our day to stop many from fulfilling destiny. What is the pattern in your family?
Prayer: Father, by the finished work at Calvary, I decree positive patterns in my family in Jesus’ name.
