Blessing of Children

 All these blessings will come upon you and overtake you if you obey the Lord your God: — Deuteronomy 28:2

 “Blessed shall be the offspring of your body — Deuteronomy 28:4a

The Lord will make you abound …  in the offspring of your body — Deuteronomy 28:11a

Obedience brings the blessing of children. God created humanity and through them He continues the blessing of life. He continues His image on the earth for God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created them; male and female He created them*. God’s plan was for procreation from the very beginning (God blessed them; and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth — Genesis 1:28a) so it is understandable that He would bless what He has commanded. God calls the man whose quiver is full of them (children) a blessed man.

The blessing is not just in number. I believe it is also to bless you and your children’s relationships and to bless your children and your children’s children and so on. God longs to bless His children. Obedience brings blessing, builds trust, and strengthens our relationship with Jesus Christ. Receive the blessing by being obedient — for you and your offspring.

Continually seeking Him,

Sharon

 

*Genesis 1:27

Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, So are the children of one’s youth. How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them; They will not be ashamed When they speak with their enemies in the gate. — Psalm 127:4-5
