What does the Bible say about the family of a man who fears the LORD in Psalms 128?
Today, we read Psalms 128 and Isaiah 35-38.
Our family cook, Fresh Kay, started off with a prayer for the family from Psalms 128:1, “All #LA187 family members shall be highly blessed and favored because we fear the LORD.” He pointed out that the last two verses of Psalms 128 promise anyone who fears the LORD long life and prosperity.
We move on to Isaiah 35 where we learned that no matter what we may have suffered or are presently enduring, when God’s restoration comes, our WILDERNESS and WASTELAND will BLOSSOM and be FRUITFUL. In other words, we shall be FRESH and FLOURISHING.
Another decree from Fresh Kay on the family, “As we walk fearfully and faithfully with our God, He will restore and keep us in our ZION where sorrow and sighing will run away from us.”

In Isaiah 36 and 37, we see Sennacherib the King of Assyria taunting Hezekiah, King of Judah with his God. It’s the same way the devil and his emissaries taunt us too as Christians. Hezekiah provides a good example of the type of decision to make at such times. He ran to God. We need to turn to God in prayer and fasting. Also, the shepherds He has placed on earth (Pastors, people in positions of authority in the Church) are there to pray with us. As Hopilinto succinctly put it, “The solution is not farfetched, run to Baba God! GBAM!” #GBAM indeed! Of course, running to God was not in vain, we see the end of Sennacherib in verse 38 of Chapter 37.
“Now it came to pass, as he was worshiping in the house of Nisroch his god, that his sons Adrammelech and Sharezer struck him down with the sword; and they escaped into the land of Ararat. Then Esarhaddon his son reigned in his place.”
@SignetSeal also pointed out that as Isaiah SPREAD out the letter from Sennacherib before God, we are to SPREAD all our problems before our God.
Isaiah 38 sparked a question from Fresh Kay “Can problems ever cease in an individual’s life after becoming born again?”
#FRESH answers from the family:
“I don’t think so but we are assured of victory in the face of all those problems.” – Ife
“Man is like unrefined gold, worthless yet with much potential. God is the smith. The flames in the furnace are life and its problems. We are refined by The Word and can confront the problems.” – Dami Poet
“God has already made a way out of every challenge ahead of us. Not just that, the challenges are another way for us to win and gain victories.” – Fresh Kay
Our memory verse for today was from Psalm 128:6
Yes, may you see your children’s children. Peace be upon Israel!
We echo: YES! YES! YES! and YES again!
Stay FRESH and ALIVE!
