Honor thy father and thy mother, as the Lord thy God hath commanded thee; that thy days maybe prolonged, and that it may go well with thee, in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
Honor- To have integrity and faith in One’s beliefs and actions; a source of credit or distinction to hold in high public esteem and recognize and esteem someone greater than yourself.
Many people don’t know the power of honor. I want you to be equipped with the full manifestations of God. But to receive the full manifestations of God is done through honor. Honor is something that will take you a long way in life.
God has created and placed people in your life that are there to watch over you, and should be highly esteemed. These people are your parents, your aunts, uncles, and even your spiritual leaders. Honor is your transportation into the blessings realm. God has given you a commandment, not to control or hurt you, but to bless you. You may know some people who think more highly of themselves than they should and esteem themselves only…almost as if they’re ‘self-made’. These people have no order in their life and no honor. I believe that no one is a ‘self-made’ man, you can be a God made man! Whether you account your accomplishments to God’s blessings, someone along your path to success has helped you get where you are in some form. You have to have government in your life; it’s a means of checks and balances, because men left to themselves will self-destruct. These limitations and rules are not to hurt you but they will keep you on track in having the benefits of structure.
Many people don’t honor because it didn’t start in their home while growing up; the father and the mother was never respected as they should be. It’s disheartening to see the disenfranchisement of many families because of the lack of honor. How can you say you honor God who you can’t see but you don’t honor the people He has placed in your life to respect and take care of?
Honor is important. And it is important you have honor in your life as God has commanded so that your days may go well. He doesn’t tell us this for show, it is a set up so you will be blessed up! Don’t let anybody tell you otherwise…HONOR IS THE KEY. You may be saying to yourself, I have been through a lot with some of the people in my life such as my parents and it feels hard to respect them and to show honor based on what’s happened. God didn’t say honor them for what they did or didn’t do, He said honor them because they were created to watch for your soul! It is so important that you understand that honor will take you places where you can’t get on your own. For some of you honor is connected to your healing, deliverance, breakthrough, etc. Honor is the key that unlocks the blessings of Heaven in your life! When you honor, these blessings will overtake you. You have to have an expectation! Until next time my friend, be blessed!
