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
Do you think the 2nd Amendment will be destroyed by the Biden Administration? (1)
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!
America Gets Tutored in the Doctrine of Devils
College Fix editor Jennifer Kabbany says “Nevermind the War on Christmas – what about the War on Jesus Christ?”
College Fix editor Jennifer Kabbany says “Nevermind the War on Christmas – what about the War on Jesus Christ?” Universities across America show an outright disregard and disdain for Jesus Christ, a survey by The College Fix finds. “A look at hundreds of religious studies classes at universities across the nation uncovered that, for the most part, professors prefer to snub the subject of who Jesus is and what he preached. Classes that are focused on Christianity, meanwhile, tip-toe around or altogether avoid the topic of Christ’s teachings.” College Fix says, classes in witchcraft, shamanism, yoga, after life beliefs, gender and religion are, but a few of the courses schools now offer the students in American colleges. But it doesn’t start there – it begins in kindergarten classes and elementary education. Drag queens are reading to the kiddies on anything they see fit, all while dressed in full gay regalia. Prophecy News Watch site says “Queer Is In, Christian Is Out.” The piece written by author Jonathon Van Maren that many classic ideas, teachings, and stories for children are getting LGBT makeovers, like these. “According to Christianity Daily, the fairytale Cinderella will be coming to Amazon Prime in September with a “LGBTQ sexless godmother,” played, unsurprisingly, by male homosexual Billy Porter. Porter told CBS that the new version will be “a classic fairytale for a new generation.” The BBC is also plugging a new children’s book called My Daddies, the story of a motherless little girl adopted by two men. This book was newsworthy not because there is any shortage of this sort of thing lately, but because it is “the first book of its kind to be written and illustrated by same-sex adoptive parents,” and “the first picture book about two gay dads with both an LGBT author and illustrator.” PBS, as…
Leftists on God, Creation, and Religion
What do you say to a mass political movement that denies the existence of God…?
As many citizens know, even those on the Left, our nation was founded based on a strong belief in God. The Founding Fathers recognized that the rights of human beings are bestowed by the Creator, not by other people. They did not require that anyone be religious or adhere to any particular religious doctrine. Concurrently, the often misquoted phrase about the “separation of church and state” does not appear anywhere in the U.S. Constitution. The statement was part of Thomas Jefferson’s response in 1802 to a religious association in answer to their letter from October 1801. https://usconstitution.net/jeffwall.html An Immutable Right The Danbury Baptists, a religious minority based in Connecticut, lamented that their religious liberty was regarded not as an ‘immutable right,’ but as a privilege granted by the state legislature. Jefferson’s carefully replied, but focused only on religious liberty on the national level. His letter included the phrase “wall of separation between church and state.” This phrase has served as a type short-hand for the First Amendment’s ‘Establishment Clause’ which forbids the government from passing any law “respecting an establishment of religion.” This Establishment Clause forbids the government from establishing an ‘official’ religion and from unduly favoring one religion over another. Any reference to God, per se, is an entirely different issue. Whom Do We Trust? Religious sentiment heightened throughout the dark days of the U.S. Civil War, as hundreds of thousands of soldiers died. A clamoring arose for the U.S. to acknowledge the deity, and subsequently the Secretary of the Treasury mandated that the words, “In God We Trust” appear on various Federal Reserve notes and on all coinage. www.treasury.gov/about/education/Pages/in-god-we-trust.aspx In 1956, “In God We Trust” became the official motto of the U.S. Today, this phrase, and the words “one nation under God” in the U.S. Pledge of Allegiance,…
