In those days they shall no longer say:
“‘The fathers have eaten sour grapes,
and the children's teeth are set on edge.’
Jeremiah 31:29 ESV
We have people in the body of Christ who grew up while hating what their parents did for them. They hated the way they acted, the way they treated others and the way they responded to problems that came in their ways.
Most of these people swore that they won't become like their parents. They tried their best to stay far from all things that they believed will take them in the same path that their parents took. The time came and they became adults, and they started seeing that they are walking in the same direction that their parents did.
They find themselves committing the same mistakes, and slowly they started to become what they hated most in their lives. They became the copy of what they once swore they won't ever become. If you have experienced this, or you have seen someone who is struggling in this area. Then you need to learn that this does not happen by accident; but there is something in the spiritual realm that is needed to be broken in order for you to be set free.
This morning, ask God in the name of Jesus that He may break every chain that has been connecting you with the spirits that has controlling your family tree. It may be possible that there are demons that have been assigned to make sure each member of your family ends up in the same fate as the previous ones. That's why you may find a single family struggling with the same sin or weaknesses generation after generation.
Jesus is the only one who can break those wicked behaviors in your life. If you are struggling with a certain addiction; He is the only one who can give you strength to overcome it and set you free. You can't fight that battle with your own strength; you need to surrender to Jesus. You need to surrender to the Master and ask for His help; He will deliver you that you that you may praise His name.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Father, I'm coming before You in the name of Jesus. Lord I'm breaking any trend of behaviors that I had seen in my parents that is starting to appear in me. I refuse to commit the same sins that my parents did in the name of Jesus. Set me free from every curse that is in my family, and help me to grow and be like You. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
