As parents, we want our children to be full of the Word and full of power! The world will try to inundate them with many thoughts and ideas, but if the Word of God is firmly established in their hearts, they will be able to separate the truth from the lies.
This is the best “window of opportunity” that we have to get them saturated! They are our future! And as we get them full of the Word at this early age, imagine what a powerful witnesses they will be for God!
Consider the following scriptures:
Deuteronomy 6:6-7 (KJV) And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
Vs. 7 in the Amplified version says: “You shall whet and sharpen them so as to make them penetrate, and teach and impress them diligently upon the [minds and] the hearts of your children…”
Colossians 3:16 (KJV) Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom…
Isaiah 54:13 (AMP) And all your children shall be disciples [taught by the Lord and obedient to His will], and great shall be the peace and undisturbed composure of your children.
2 Timothy 3:15 (KJV) And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
I want our kids to know God—to really know Him (and I’m sure you do too)!
Several months ago, the Lord placed in my heart the desire to write a 31-day devotional for kids. At the time, I had no idea it would come out right after such a tragic event that has just occurred in our nation against our children. But, I believe God’s timing is perfect. And in this eBook, there are Bible truths that will help reinforce the faith and courage of children everywhere.
As parents, we have an immense responsibility to train our children in the Word of God. They must be taught all of the powerful truths contained within it. This is not my suggestion; it is the commandment of the Lord.
If you would like to check out the devotional, click here.
It is my desire that through this book, your children will begin to have a better understanding of who they are and what they have in Christ. The more Bible truths they learn, the more established in God’s Word they will be.
