Blessings Within

February 21

Exodus 20:13

Honor your father and mother. Then you will live a long, full life in the land of the Lord your God is giving to you. 

The reality is our parents will always be our parents. They will always hold that position and place in our lives. The simple fact that they can be difficult at times does not negate their role in our lives. There are so many blessings that the Lord has promised us and these blessings are only attainable by virtue of us obeying our parents. These blessings do not come simply because we called for them. They come as a fulfillment of Gods word to us, by means of us obeying and walking in line with His word.  We do not have the luxury of choosing when we will or will not obey. It is a command of the Most High and one that ought to be followed. 

In some of the positions we may hold in our parents lives we can find ourselves trying to take over them with our own desires and motives. We must take a position in our parents lives that allows us to honor them in the way that they ought to be honored. Take a look at your relationship with your parents and pinpoint some areas in which you can improve. Find areas where you can start showing them that you honor them for their position in your life. Do not miss out on your blessings out of arrogance or unnecessary entitlement. Obey and the Lord will make His promises your portion.
