Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. "Honor your father and mother" – which is the first commandment with a promise – "so that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth." Ephesians 6:1-3

One of the founding principles of walking in God's favor and blessing is honor. It starts in the home as we honor God by honoring our parents. It extends out as we honor those in authority, our elders, our spiritual fathers and mothers, and God's eternal Bride, the Church.

This week marks the day that our nation sets apart to celebrate and honor our mothers. Let us take time to thank God for our mothers. If your mother is still with you, find a way to honor her. If you have "mother-issues," then make a point of letting go and blessing the one who gave you life. There is nothing that the Cross is not able to cover.

It is the door for you to find your perfect family. It makes the way for you to know your Heavenly Father. It makes you a new creation and joins you to your true identity – a child of the King. If your mother did not give birth to you, you would never have had the opportunity to know your full identity and eternal destiny. Honor brings God's blessing. Step into it today as you honor and bless your natural and spiritual mothers.
