Jewels for the Journey
Proverbs 22:6 (Amplified Bible)
6Train up a child in the way he should go [and in keeping with his individual gift or bent], and when he is old he will not depart from it.(A)
Dear Woman of God,
We must teach our children about God. We must live godly-lives before them so they are able to recognize what it means to truly be a Christian. We must let them see us live out God’s character. We must recognize the gifting that God has placed within our children and help steer them toward developing a relationship with Christ so they are able to wisely seek God’s plan for their lives. We, as godly women, must recognize the tricks and traps of the enemy where our children are concerned. We must be willing to make decisions that are unpopular and are in direct opposition to the world’s view in order to protect our children’s futures. We must recognize that God has placed us in charge of our children and that this assignment is never to be taken lightly. We live in a time when young lives are rapidly being destroyed and we must rise up as godly women and tear down the strongholds that the enemy erects to cause our children to turn away from God. Jeremiah 29:11-13 (New International Version) says, 11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. God has a plan for our lives as well as the lives of our children. We encourage you to seek God about how to mold your children!
