Parents must bring up their children in godly ways. Then God shall pour out His blessings on them.
Amram and Jochebed, the parents of Moses (Numbers 26:59) did not fear the command of the king and hid their child Moses for three months (Exodus 2:2). It was through Moses the Lord brought the Israelites out of slavery from Egypt.
Even his brother Aaron was chosen by God to assist him in that mammoth task. Miriam, the sister of Moses, became a prophetess and she always praised God with music and dance. It is because their parents led them in godly ways, all of them were able to lead God-fearing lives.
Dearly beloved, how are you going to guide your children whom God has graciously given to you?
I lost my first two children when they were in my womb and hence I was going through much agony. It was at this juncture I began to pray more and more along with my husband. Many servants of God also prayed for God to bless us with a child. In answer to all these prayers, the Lord blessed us with a beautiful boy baby who is none other than my son Paul Dhinakaran himself.
Even from his childhood, every day, I would surrender him at the feet of God and pray saying, “Lord, You are using his father mightily in Your ministry for Your glory. I am commending my son also into Your loving hands. Let Your will be done in everything concerning his life. All that I ask You is that he should become a mighty servant of God.”
Although I tried my best to bring him up in godly ways, the devil tried to tempt him. But when we clung on to God firmly, He saved my son at His appointed time, and today, he is using him mightily for His glory. Today, he is truly a sign and wonder for God.
Dearly beloved, it is your responsibility to bring up your children in godly ways. When they become slaves to the devil and lead wayward lives, you parents must fast and pray with one accord for them. When you do that, your children will inherit the following blessing: “The least of you will become a thousand, the smallest a mighty nation” (Isaiah 60:22).
They will also arise and shine for God. May the Lord grant your children the divine grace to become signs and wonders for His glory.
The Bible says, “Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my doors, waiting at my doorway” (Proverbs 8:34). Every day, you must wait at the feet of God in prayer. Then He will guide you with His counsel to lead a godly life. When you pay heed to His voice, He shall pour out His blessings upon you and your children.
Loving Lord Jesus,
I wait at your feet in prayer. Guide me with your counsel to lead a godly life. Help me to bring up my children in godly ways. Pour out your blessings upon them. Let them become signs and wonders for your glory.
In Your matchless name I pray.
