Because God is faithful and keeps covenant and mercy to those who love Him and keep
His commandments, we can pray for God to bring all of our future descendants, even
to a thousand generations as the Lord tarries, into His kingdom.
As we pray our requests for the future generations that will follow, and leave the
fulfilling of these requests to the Lord who is faithful, we will then have taken a step
for blessing this earth and our families, our future descendants, down through history,
even to a thousand generations.
In Matthew 13: 33 Jesus told a parable, "...The kingdom of heaven is like leaven, which
a woman took and hid in three measures of meal till it was all leavened."
As the Lord faithfully answers our prayers, bringing our families, our future descendants,
into His kingdom, even to a thousand generations, can you imagine how many
lives will be impacted for Jesus' kingdom? Just as the leaven was hidden in the three
measures of meal till the meal was all leavened, our families, our future descendants, will
spread out over the face of the whole earth, permeating, perhaps hidden and unseen at
times, but always enlarging and penetrating into our world and culture for our
God's glory as we continue in faith, praying for descendants.
