Legacy is all about who are you fathering!

My Life Journal today…

Scripture:

“During his lifetime Absalom had taken a pillar and erected it in the King’s Valley as a monument to himself, for he thought, “I have no son to carry on the memory of my name.” He named the pillar after himself, and it is called Absalom’s Monument to this day.”  2 Samuel‬ ‭18:18‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Observation:

Absolom had no sons, so he builds a monument to himself – thinking I have no son to carry on the memory of my name. I want people to remember me.

Application:

Absolum was the son that took the kingdom from his father and then dies at the hand of Joan and is harried in a pit covered with rocks.  Legacy is all about who you Fathr. There are people in ministry that do not have a son to sow into, a son to carry on the ministry or a son to follow in their footsteps. We must be vigiallant about fathering sons that can not simply carry on our legacy, but carry ministry. Legacy is about multiplication…we need to multiply and invest ourselves in who’s next.

Prayer:

Lord help me to recognize my sons in the ministry and help me to invest in them so they can carry the mantle of ministry. Legacy is not what I do it’s what I choose to invest in.

out with the old…in with the new

Today I spent hours sorting files and simply cleaning out the history of the past. I found myself looking at names and dates and dvd’s with nothing written on them…all needing a new home-the garbage! If you don’t make room for the future you will only have the past! I am not living in the past…can’t change or rearrange anything about it. The past will only torment you and stress you out if you allow it. So, by making room for the future I am giving place an dominion to the power of God to flow in my life, my family and the ministry he has called us to do! What about you today? Are you holding onto the past…whatever it may be? Good…Great…Aweful…Hurtful…whatever it was it is what it is…the past. Live in the Now and look for a NOW God to show up and create moments that will change and shape your future. Now is the time to do something significant for God. Now is the time to leave a lasting mark on this world!
