Genesis 5:29 NKJV “And he called his name Noah, saying, “This one will comfort us concerning our work and the toil of our hands, because of the ground which the Lord has cursed.”
After Adam and Eve sinned by disobeying God, God said to Adam, “Because you have heeded the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree of which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat of it’: “Cursed is the ground for your sake; In toil you shall eat of it All the days of your life. Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you, and you shall eat the herb of the field. In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for dust you are, and to dust you shall return.”
In those days, they were living very long, up to nine hundred years! But even though they were living long, they were labouring very hard as a result of the curse. By the time Noah was born, their suffering had become unbearable, and he was called Noah, the one that would bring comfort to his family.
I came to prophesy to you this morning! You are the one that will turn things around in your family! Where there has been hardship and unfruitfulness, through you the blessing of the Lord comes in! Laban and Portiphar knew that they were blessed because of Jacob and Joseph. From today, the blessing of God will follow you and manifest wherever you are and in all that you do, in the name of Jesus!
