children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a
reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of
one’s youth. Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them.
Grace For Parenting
If you are overwhelmed by the responsibilities of being a parent
today, I want to encourage you to believe that there is a provision and a
grace for parenting. Instead of worrying and being anxious for your
children, pray for them to experience God’s wisdom, favor and protection
through Jesus Christ.
Before they go to bed at night, or before they leave for school, just
lay hands on them and say, “Because you are a Jesus-boy (or
Jesus-girl), day by day, you are increasing in the wisdom of God and in
favor with God and men! Jesus will cause you to be at the right place at
the right time.”
Cast your cares for your children to the Lord. Trust Him for the
provision of wisdom to speak words of encouragement and life to them
about making good decisions instead of bowing to peer pressure. As you
meditate on His promises to bless, protect and equip your children for
the challenges of life, know that the Lord has equipped and provided you
with the grace to be an excellent parent!
