Five Things for Your Children Should Know About God

Here are five powerful messages for kids to encourage them to know God and hear from Him personally….

When God blesses us with children, He certainly doesn’t intend for us to take His place as the primary voice of influence in their lives, or for us to merely carry them along on our walk with God and never allow them to walk with Him themselves.

God speaks to us through His word, but He wants to speak to our children, too! Here are five powerful messages for kids to encourage them to know God and hear from Him personally:

1. God has a purpose for every life He has given.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11

God’s plan for each of our lives, including our children’s, began before the beginning of the world! He designated a path for us, and when we listen to His voice in our lives, that path is made straight.

2. In the darkness, He is still working good.

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28

I’m reminded of a beautiful poem of how, in our lives, we see only a tangled mess of knotted thread, yet when God reveals his plans to us on the other side, we see a beautiful tapestry expertly woven for His glory. Any stage of childhood can have its share of pain and difficulty, but God is always with us and He is always working things for our good!

3. Pain is inevitable, but your response to it is what matters.

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

When we turn to the world for comfort, we follow a rabbit trail into a deceptive world filled with more pain than we had in the first place. When we turn to God in our dark times, however, he gives us unimaginable peace and comfort as only He can.

4. Never allow anyone other than God to become “your everything.”

“Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal comfort and a wonderful hope, comfort you and strengthen you in every good thing you do and say.” 2 Thessalonians 2:16-17

The world is constantly bombarding us with messages that we are #1, or our love interest is #1, or the person who signs our paychecks is #1, but it is all a huge lie. Each of these people can and will fail us at some point. After all, who can fill the shoes of Jesus? No one! When we look to Jesus for our joy and peace, we will never be disappointed.

5. An eternal life of joy is only available through the love, grace, and mercy of Jesus Christ.

“See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame.” 1 Peter 2:6

Eternal life is God’s gift to His children! Don’t question that gift, don’t doubt that gift, just grab that gift and hold it precious above all else in your life!

Save conservative media!

Catholic Priest Says A Prayer For ‘Unborn Child In The Womb’ During The DNC

Published

on

A Catholic priest who was called upon to deliver a prayer during the Democratic National Convention no doubt made quite a few folks very, very angry by praying for and making a plea on behalf of unborn children at the end of the event. Rev. James Martin, a Jesuit who has caused quite a stir in the Catholic Church for his writings about gay and transgender issues, prayed that folks who were watching the event would open their hearts to “those most in need,” which included “the unborn child in the womb.” Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “Help to be a nation where every life is sacred, all people are loved, and all are welcome,” he said. Martin confirmed to the Washington Examiner earlier in the week that his prayer would contain explicit references to the unborn. Although a hot-button issue for much of the Democratic primary, abortion did not play a major role in the Democratic convention. Aside from Martin’s prayer, the issue received only minimal attention, with some speakers mentioning it in their speeches. Republicans, by contrast, are gearing up to make a major issue of abortion at the Republican National Convention next week. In addition to several anti-abortion speakers, the Republican National Committee invited Cardinal Timothy Dolan, archbishop of New York, to deliver the convention’s opening prayer. Dolan has previously done so at both the Republican and Democratic conventions, during which he prayed for the protection of the unborn. At the end of the day, abortion is one of the most critical issues to face our culture in modern history. The reason, of course, is because fundamentally, at the core of the issue, is the defense of the most basic right we all have. The God-given right to exist, to live. If we cannot…

President Trump Says He’d ‘Go In And Do A Number On Middle East Countries Persecuting Christians’

Published

on

President Trump recently said that he would “do a number” on countries located in the Middle East that are persecuting Christians if he could find solid proof and evidence that sort of thing was happening. Christians in that part of the world are heavily persecuted, mostly by radical Muslim government regimes and terrorist groups, for daring to stand up boldly for the gospel of Jesus Christ. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “If you look at the way Christians have been treated in some countries, it’s beyond disgraceful,” Trump said Thursday during a news conference at the White House. “If I had information and if I had absolute proof — some of the stories that we’ve heard, which are not easy, which is not easy to get — I would go in and do a number to those countries like you wouldn’t believe. He added, “What they do to Christians in the Middle East — it’s disgraceful.” Trump made the comment while discussing the nascent “Abraham Accord” treaty to normalize relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. This is not only going to be a big help to Christians in that area of the world, but it will also help Israel as well. For many, many years, the Jewish Nation has been surrounded by countries who do not recognize it’s legitimate right to exist. Striking this deal is a first step in changing that way of thinking in that part of the world. It’s something a lot of folks probably never dreamed possible before. Christians are told in the Bible to expect persecutions and to rejoice in suffering for the cause of Christ. However, that doesn’t mean we should allow persecution to continue on as if it’s a good thing. It’s not. If we have an opportunity…
