Topic: ICHABOD 3
Text: 1 Samuel 4:19-21KJV
19 And his daughter in law, Phinehas’ wife, was with child, near to be delivered: and when she heard the tidings that the ark of God was taken, and that her father in law and her husband were dead, she bowed herself and travailed; for her pains came upon her.
20 And about the time of her death the women that stood by her said unto her, Fear not; for thou hast born a son. But she answered not, neither did she regard it.
21 And she named the child Ichabod, saying, The glory is departed from Israel: because the ark of God was taken, and because of her father in law and her husband.
From our text above, Ichabod means glory is departed. Everyone is made with glory but not everyone lives with glory, some lives are without glory because they lost it or exchange it. Another major cause of lost glory is faulty foundation.
The foundation of a man is very important in life, if the foundation is wrong or faulty it has a great deal of implication upon such a life.
A good biblical example is the boy Ichabod, who was named as such by the circumstances that surround his birth which was that his father, his father’s brother and his grandfather died the same day also the ark of God was taken from Israel. Ichabod himself was not at fault but his mother out of pain and sorrow gave him a name that meant glory is departed and really there was nothing to write home about his life, he was a descendant of a great priest in Israel and should have carried on the priesthood anointing but nothing was made mention of him.
Jabez is another example of a man with faulty foundation according to 1 Chronicles 4:9-10, His mother named him Jabez, meaning sorrow and so their was nothing good about his life, his life was an epitome of sorrow instead of success, so the glory of his life was out of place because of the foundation of his life, however Jabez was able to recover his glory and changed the story of his life when he prayed to God. He requested 5 things from God and God granted all his prayer requests.
Dearly beloved, your foundation is important, whatever, may be wrong with your foundation can be addressed in the place of prayer, God can repair a faulty foundation, He can give you a new beginning, just spend time with Him in prayer and fasting even as we wait on God today and He will restore your lost glory in Jesus Name.
* Father, repair and rebuild every faulty foundation in my life in Jesus Name.
