YOU NEVER KNOW ABOUT YOUR KIDS

YOU NEVER KNOW ABOUT YOUR KIDS


The children of Amram were Aaron, Moses, and Miriam. (1 Chronicles 6:3)

What will your children become? What will they do? What will they accomplish? One thing is for sure: you never know.

AMRAM’S OWN

We don’t really know anything about Amram in the Scripture except that he was the father of three children who were mightily used in the Scripture. One was headed to be killed as a baby, but his mother intervened, putting him in the bulrushes to be rescued by Pharoah’s daughter. Who knew he would deliver an entire nation? Record God’s laws for all of time? Become one of the greatest leaders of human history?

His brother, Aaron, had quite an impact in his own right, as did their sister, Miriam.

GETTING READY

One thing is for sure: if we knew what God had in His mind for our kids, we would probably be more intentional. Disciple them more carefully. Pray for them unceasingly. Equip them at greater levels.

We get a few years to invest in our kids. They are gifts from the Lord and our most important stewardship. We should give every ounce of energy possible to pour wisdom and life into their hearts and minds. We should help them know the Scripture and prayer. And, most importantly, we should lead them to Christ, for they will be able to do all things through Him.

Look at your child today, not as an intrusion into your busy life, but a great opportunity to raise a world-changer.

Father, thank You for the gift of my children. Give me the wisdom to shepherd them well. Help me to be about the main things in life, so they will see the value of a life wholly surrendered to You. Protect them from evil and help them grow to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.

This spiritual uniting and Presence connects us in a way that could not happen organizationally. The church—throughout the ages and across nations—is not an organization made by human hands, but an organism joined by a common Life. The blessed Holy Spirit is the agent and the Presence, helping us experience a unity with other believers far beyond what we even know with our own biological families.

THE ENCOURAGING WORD ABOUT TEMPTATION

No demand is made upon your life that is not made upon the Christ who lives within you. Don't let Satan deceive you about your ability in Christ or God's kindness and provision. You may not be experiencing this victory yet, but you have all you need in Christ as you face each trial and temptation.

Pause and think of this deeply right now. If you are a true believer, the Holy Spirit lives in you! Christ chose to enter the physical womb of a virgin to be born. In like measure, the Holy Spirit has chosen to reside in you until your life is over. Glorify Him with your body. Be humbled, be grateful, and be cooperative with your Divine Guest.
