DCLM Higher Everyday 30 November 2021 Devotional by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi — My Parent’s Prosperity
TOPIC: MY PARENTS’ PROSPERITY
TEXT: GENESIS 24:34-38
34 And he said, I am Abraham’s servant.
35 And the LORD hath blessed my master greatly; and he is become great: and he hath given him flocks, and herds, and silver, and gold, and menservants, and maidservants, and camels, and asses.
36 And Sarah my master’s wife bare a son to my master when she was old: and unto him hath he given all that he hath.
37 And my master made me swear, saying, Thou shalt not take a wife to my son of the daughters of the Canaanites, in whose land I dwell:
38 But thou shalt go unto my father’s house, and to my kindred, and take a wife unto my son.
MEMORY VERSE: “And Abraham was old, and well stricken in age: and the LORD had blessed Abraham in all things” (GENESIS 24:1).
Riches and material increase are God’s blessings and heritage for Christians. As you seek spiritual blessings and your soul’s prosperity through repentance from sin, and separation from sinful peers and partners, God will add material blessings to you. Through you, your parents, the church and the world at large can enjoy divine abundance if you are steadfast in serving the Lord. These blessings multiply even more when the family members unite in righteousness; and are consistent in holy living. If your family members are still living in sin, God can use you to bring them to the Kingdom if you can pray and preach Christ to them.
From our text, Abraham obeyed the call of God, yielded himself totally to God’s priority; and God blessed him in all things. He became great; he had unquantifiable silver and gold as well as abundance of livestock. He was among the economic powers in His time. Your parents too can be blessed like Abraham in all things as you uphold them in prayer. God will bless the works of their hands.
QUOTE: Your parents too can be blessed.
CHALLENGE: Serve God and your household will be blessed.
PRAYER: Lord, show my parents the path to true prosperity.
1. Admit that you are a sinner. "For all [humans] have sinned, and comes short of the glory of God....[and] the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 3:23)
2. Repent now. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out ...[for] if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness " (Acts 3:19, 1 John 1:9)
3. Believe that God loves you and Jesus died for you. "God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet Sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)
4. Invite Jesus into your life through prayer of faith. Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20)
