“God rescued us from dead-end alleys and dark dungeons. He’s set us up in the kingdom of the Son he loves so much, the Son who got us out of the pit we were in, got rid of the sins we were doomed to keep repeating.” Colossians 1:13–14 (MSG, emphasis added)
Sometimes, brokenness enters into one generation and stays for many. A father is an alcoholic, and the following generations are affected by the pain and destruction that he brought into the family. They in turn look for ways to stop their own pain and far too often end up being held captive by the very things that they were trying to find freedom from.
Sickness and disease can run like a curse from one generation to the next, until one person comes along to change the family legacy. God looks for one who will stand in the gap—the gap between the way things are and the way He desires them to be. Those who will invite Him in to bring healing and impart wholeness in all the broken places. Even now, you can be that brave one, the one who says “no more” to the robbery and pain. The one who agrees with God’s best and says, “yes” to Him and all He has ordained.
Regardless of how many generations of trauma, shame or pain; suffering or sorrow that may exist in your family line; with His help, you can be the one to turn the tide. Receive His transforming power into your life today, to bring the needed change. See the curse reversed and rivers of healing run through the generations, those on the earth now, and those that are yet to be.
With God, all things are possible—even this beloved! Even this. For brokenness was never His desire for you.
