The Privilege of Partnering with God

As a parent, you already want to sow seeds of God’s love and His truth into your kids’ hearts. Well, be encouraged. It’s never too early and it’s never too late to start. That’s because God’s Word does not return void, no matter when it’s sown. It always works on the heart of the hearer, and it always accomplishes God’s will.

At first pointing your children to God may be a little hard. It may feel awkward or forced to quote a Scripture, or share a proverb, or refer to a biblical principle. Whenever this happens, just determine to do what God is asking of you—speak up, no matter what. Remind yourself to be on your toes for everyday opportunities that come along as you and your children sit, walk, lie down, and rise up at home and throughout the day. And if the opportunities don’t appear to be there, create them. Even nature and the heavens declare His glory!

Please don’t underestimate the urgency of planting God’s truth in your children’s hearts and minds. No matter what the age, they need to constantly hear about God. His Word stimulates, promotes, and can bring about a love for God and a saving relationship with Him (2 Timothy 2:15).

God’s wisdom and truth provide a path for your child’s walk through life. And you, Mom and Dad, have the privilege of partnering with God to grow them into men and women after God’s own heart.

We’ve all struggled at one time or another with our ability to fully trust God. I never truly realized the extent to which I wrestled with Him over both the simplest of things, and the big things, until I had children. Yet, I would always hear Him whisper to my spirit, “I will protect them. Trust me.”
