Peace to Your Descendants

[Saturday, October 1]

“I have given you the position and the authority to help form the future of your descendants. For even as Mordecai the Jew paved the way for his descendants to live in peace, you are given the ability to do so.”

Prophetic Scripture:

For Mordecai the Jew was next unto king Ahasuerus, and great among the Jews, and accepted of the multitude of his brethren, seeking the wealth of his people, and speaking peace to all his seed (Esther 10:3).

When the Lord gave Mordecai a position as second-in-command over the providences of King Ahasuerus (Xerxes), Mordecai made a point to see to the welfare of the Jews and his own personal descendants. One key way he did that was by giving them a peace declaration. In Esther 10:3, the King James says “speaking peace to all his seed.” The Amplified says it similarly. Some other translations say he spoke up for their welfare. I believe both angles apply. Mordecai had the position to not only give voice to the people’s needs, but he also spoke over them in such a way that it set their course in peace.

As God’s people, we have been given authority to form the future
of both our natural and in many cases spiritual descendants. Parents can do it for their children. Pastors can do so for their congregations, and so forth. We provide peace to our descendants in two key ways. First, look out for their benefit. Create an environment where they will enjoy personal fulfillment and growth. Second, speak peace over them and to them. Declare their lives will be blessed and full of abundance. As the person who God has positioned, you have a divine gift to form their future. Stand up today and speak peace to your descendants.


Father, I decree peace over my descendants today. I say their future will be full of the peace of God, and I commit to create for them a positive environment of peace. Amen.
