For I will pour water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry ground; I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring, and my blessing on your descendants. -Isaiah 44:3 NIV
For almost all of us with any kind of addiction, we know that these kinds of issues usually stem, in part, from our parents. They are generational problems. And sometimes, that’s all we can see. A friend of mine once told me about a room his father kept in the house called the F— Room. It was plastered with pornography. So, it was no surprise, that as he grew up, he too had a battle with pornography and sexual integrity.
But, as hinted in this verse and shown in many others, God can stop the generational curse dead in its tracks if one finally gives his life over to God. God is telling us here, that if we follow Him, he will pour out His blessings on our children. That should come as a wave a relief to all of us who have or want to have kids. Because we have surrendered our lives to God, even if we still slip up from time to time, God has promised blessings on our families.
