Item description for God is Greater Than . . . Family Mess by Pastor Joey Johnson & II Johnson Joey...
Overview On the basis of the biblical phrase, "visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, to the third and fourth generation," the author traces Family Mess or "generational bondage" in the family of Abraham to the fourth generation. As the father of Israel and of the Christian faith, Abraham provides an excellent example for us to examine his family mess in order to help us conquer our own. "God is Greater Than . . . Family Mess" will help you . . . * Understand how God worked through the difficult circumstances of Old Testament characters to give them a destiny. * Understand the impact of dysfunction in your family of origin. * Look at dysfunction and co-dependency from a biblical perspective. * Identify your own "family mess." * Understand that God is greater than your upbringing. * Pursue your hopes, dreams, expectations, and destiny in the Holy Spirit. God worked in the midst of Abraham's family problems to give the promise of a brighter future. He gave Abraham and his posterity a destiny that overcame their outward limitations. Praise God that He does the same thing for us, the spiritual children of Abraham.
