Wow! What an awesome week with The Conquerors International Strength Team!

Not only did they do 8 assemblies at 7 different schools and Family Night during the week, but they also came and spoke in our Sunday morning services as well as the youth service on Sunday night! Seeing God move through them to reach our community was an amazing experience and we know that lives were changed through the process.

Opening Scripture

1 Unless the Lord builds a house, the work of the builders is wasted. Unless the Lord protects a city, guarding it with sentries will do no good. 2 It is useless for you to work so hard from early morning until late at night, anxiously working for food to eat; for God gives rest to his loved ones. 3 Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him. 4 Children born to a young man are like arrows in a warrior's hands. 5 How joyful is the man whose quiver is full of them! He will not be put to shame when he confronts his accusers at the city gates.

128:1 How joyful are those who fear the Lord — all who follow his ways! 2 You will enjoy the fruit of your labor. How joyful and prosperous you will be! 3 Your wife will be like a fruitful grapevine, flourishing within your home. Your children will be like vigorous young olive trees as they sit around your table. 4 That is the Lord's blessing for those who fear him. 5 May the Lord continually bless you from Zion. May you see Jerusalem prosper as long as you live. 6 May you live to enjoy your grandchildren. May Israel have peace!

Psalms 127:1-128:6 NLT

1.  Is God doing the building or are you?

1 Unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain.

Unless the LORD watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain.

2 In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat — for he grants sleep to those he loves.

Psalm 127:1-2 NIV

2. Are you possessive?    


3 Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him.

Psalms 127:3 NIV

3. Are you raising your children to do God-sized things for Christ?


4 Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth.

Psalms 127:4 NIV

4. Keeping God first has generational results.


1 Blessed are all who fear the LORD, who walk in obedience to him.

2 You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours. 3 Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your children will be like olive shoots around your table. 4 Yes, this will be the blessing for the man who fears the LORD. 5 May the LORD bless you from Zion; may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days of your life. 6 May you live to see your children’s children—peace be on Israel.

Psalm 128:1-6 NIV

5. God’s plan for your family is much greater than the world could ever suggest.


15 Has not [the Lord] made them one? In flesh and spirit they are his. And why one? Because he was seeking godly offspring. So guard yourself in your spirit, and do not break faith with the wife of your youth.

Malachi 2:15 NIV
