Vital signs- Thursday, August 27th, 2020



“And the LORD passed before him and proclaimed, “The LORD, the LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth, keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children’s children to the third and the fourth generation.””

‭‭Exodus‬ ‭34:6-7‬ ‭NKJV‬‬


Time does not heal all wounds and if we don’t deal with the past, it will deal with us in the present. An honest look at our personal lives as well as our social condition is a testament to this reality. From family trauma experienced, we as Americans, have personal and collective histories that need to be addressed.


Throughout the Bible unaddressed sin is shown to carry generational consequences. Scripture is very clear about this. While we serve a just God who will not let sin go unpunished, this same truth highlights his love and compassion. When individuals and nations alike repent of their sin, God promises blessing that lasts through generations!


Prayer: God, please reveal personal and generational sin patterns in my life. Help me also to look outside myself and see how sins are plaguing communities around me and help me bring Restoration as you Restore me.
