Your Choices Make Your Life!

choices lifeGenerational curse?

2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!

Ezekial 18:19 “‘What?’ you ask. ‘Doesn’t the child pay for the parent’s sins?’ No! For if the child does what is just and right and keeps my decrees, that child will surely live. 20 The person who sins is the one who will die. The child will not be punished for the parent’s sins, and the parent will not be punished for the child’s sins. Righteous people will be rewarded for their own righteous behavior, and wicked people will be punished for their own wickedness. 21 But if wicked people turn away from all their sins and begin to obey my decrees and do what is just and right, they will surely live and not die.

I have seen people come out of homes that were drug centers, crack houses, and parents that are still living the lifestyle of sex, drugs and rock and roll.

Yet, they have chosen to live for Jesus, and do right. Fighting to be honest, loving, clean from the way they were raised.

This is the glory of the gospel. Even if someone was immoral, having sex with anything that moved, they become a born-again virgin in him, cleansed by the precious blood of Jesus!

Even if parents were addicts, alcoholics, criminals, liars, and thieves, a child can choose Jesus, life, and a life of blessing, purpose, joy, purity, and peace!

There is no sickness, disease, addiction, or criminal behavior that can be passed down generationally now, to anyone that wants a better way of life. These things are the result of the curse, but God speaks here: The sins, sicknesses and failures of the parents, will NOT be laid upon the children who choose right!

It is written: Galatians 3:13
Now Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the Law’s condemnation, by himself becoming a curse for us when he was crucified. For the scripture is plain: ‘Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree.

We can freely choose to live honestly, righteously, in purpose and passion before His throne, and our families, our homes, our children can be blessed of heaven, with a bright and glorious future!

choices hard

Jesus is a good shepherd, and if you decide to seek Him first, and let Him lead you out of the messes life has dealt you, you will discover Him to be all powerful, faithful, and a God of miracles.

1 Corinthians 10:13 (PHILLIPS)

God still governs human experience

13 No temptation has come your way that is too hard for flesh and blood to bear. But God can be trusted not to allow you to suffer any temptation beyond your powers of endurance. He will see to it that every temptation has a way out, so that it will never be impossible for you to bear it.

Jesus is the way, and the Waymaker!

‘Father, I choose to do right. I refuse to be limited by my past, or the bad choices of my ancestors. I am your child, royalty, and I will fight for purity and righteousness in my life, and this generation. I choose Jesus rule and Lordship in every area of my life, now! Amen’

Children – Obey Your Parents IN THE LORD

It is the responsibility of parents to raise their children in the training, nurture and admonition of the Lord, in love.

“In raising our children we replace innocence, with purity” – Kellie Copeland

Ephesians (NASB)

Family Relationships

6 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right

Notice this says for children to obey their parent ‘IN THE LORD’. For this is right.


As I have traveled, and seen broken homes and families, I have seen children asked to do horrible things: steal, perform sexual acts, lie, cuss, go to the store to buy parents smokes, smoke dope, cheat, etc.

every child

Jesus is the Lord, and He is holy!

He hates parents that instruct their children to do evil!

Matthew 18:6

[ Causing to Stumble ] “If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.

Yet, I teach children to obey their parents, to love, honor and respect them.

To do their homework, clean their rooms, do household chores, joyfully as unto Jesus, to put a smile on His face.

Proverbs 20:11

Even small children are known by their actions, so is their conduct really pure and upright?

He knows, He cares, He loves, and He blesses obedience and honorable actions.

Yet, if any adult, parent, or otherwise tells you to do evil – you are NOT required to obey them!

children tell truth

What has this looked like, in my 25 years of ministering to children?

Some very complicated situations, when children come to me and tell me of a mother or father doing drugs or drinking, and  we pray!

parents off drugs

I have watched Jesus answer those pure hearted prayers of children, very, very quickly and powerfully.

Whether adults, or children, if we have received Jesus, we have been adopted into God’s family, and are children of God.

John 1:12 (NIV)

12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—

We are never required to obey anyone instructing us to do wrong, ever…

Let’s Pray:

‘Father, I think of all the children who are being taught evil by parents who are not serving you. I pray you deliver these children from evil! Show them Your love, protection, deliverance, truth, and holiness, so deeply that they might walk in purity, holiness, and honor before you. Where parents are doing wrong to their children, stop them, whatever it takes, and may children be given Your gift of courage to do what is right, even if their parents are setting a wrong example. I ask this Father, knowing I am heard, for I ask in Your name Lord Jesus, Amen.’
