“And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.” (Deuteronomy 6:6-9)
Teach your children in God’s ways. Why, you might ask? Because if we don’t the devil will make sure that he teaches them in his ways. Many a dictator has said, you give me the children and I can take the world. We, as parents, need to take time each day to teach our children of the wonders of God. It will bless them and help them to be more than conquerors in life.
When your children are young and you go for a walk, show them the wonders that God the Father has made. Show them the ocean and the fish. Show them the mountains and the flowers. Show them the butterfly and the cow. You see what I mean?
As they start understanding the Word of God, have times of devotion. Read the Bible and let them read it. His Word is powerful and it will do as it says in (Psalm 119:130) “The entrance of Your words give light; It gives understanding to the simple”. In other words, the Bible will make our children smart, and not just knowledge smart but life smart.
When our children are grown, we as parents can still pray for them and trust that the Word that we have planted in their hearts will not return void but will accomplish all that it was set out to do. God’s Word is a seed and if we did our job as they were growing up, we know that God will make sure that there is a great harvest in their lives. Our children will be blessed in all that they do. When they have their own children they will have much more patience and able to experience greater peace in a world that is in caos.
Father God, Your Word is so powerful. It is filled with life and truth. Today, I make a decision to plant Your Word deep within my children’s hearts to the best of my ability. I ask with absolute faith and I believe that it will bring forth a hundred fold in their lives. I love you Jesus and are so greatful that You are my Savior. We pray this in Your precious name. Amen.
