Sunday February 17, 2013 – Parents have to train their children and be consistent in how they rule over them. You as a family have to know what you are producing with your children. Know what you are putting into them preemptively now that is going to bring about the result that you want to see at the end.

Parents need a vision for where their family is going. – Pastor Dwayne Terry

Preemptive Strikes in the Family

Preemptive Strike, Part 03

Gen 1:28 – God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”

A Preemptive Strike is humbling yourself before God every day and focusing on His power to work through you.

unrestrained.

I am no longer worthy to be called your son. ‘ 22 “But the father said to his servants, ‘Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. 23 Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let’s have a feast and celebrate.
