Sometimes God-speed involves long term planning ahead. This was the case with Solomon who received generational blessings from his father. He received a throne he had contributed nothing to. He received a prodigious amount of blessings from his father’s covenant with God. He received a substantial amount of highly trained leaders to run the nation. And he received staggering wealth to build the Temple and jump start his ambitious renovation projects.
It came suddenly when he was unexpectedly crowned king in the middle of an ordinary week, but the preparations began long before. The resources were accumulated over decades, but released abruptly.
By and large, we think little about our generational blessings and when they might be released to us, because we often don’t see our immediate ancestors as being spiritual giants. However, generational blessings can be accrued for centuries in the trust fund in heaven and released in the time God intended.
So even though we don’t have access to the accounts, to know what is there, let’s ask God for the release of all the different flavors of generational blessings that may be available to us, and may have implications to the battle of the moment.
