What You Can Trust In

You’ve got God on your side. He’s there, He’s available, and He’s totally capable. Therefore you can entrust your children into His hands. This doesn’t eliminate what you do as a parent. You still have to live out your part in raising a child to follow God’s heart. You still have to resist the pressure society puts on you and your child. But once you’ve watched and warned, and fed and led your little sheep, you can commit them into God’s keeping. Then comes prayer… and more prayer!

Trust in prayer. Prayer indicates your dependence on God. Prayer is one way to ask God how to raise a child right. Through human efforts, you might raise a child who will be an okay person, but prayer contributes to your raising an exceptional person—a child after God’s own heart.

Trust in God’s Word. The apostle Paul wrote, “the Word of His grace… is able to build you up” (Acts 20:32). He prayed to God for the Ephesians, and then taught them God’s Word. So, like Paul, pray! And, like Paul, preach! See yourself as the shepherd who makes sure his sheep have substantial food. Feed them God’s Word, and trust God to use the Scriptures for their spiritual growth and maturity.

Trust in the Lord. “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want” (Psalm 23:1). Because the Lord is your shepherd, you can know that you will never have a real need that God doesn’t take care of. You will never lack anything. The Good Shepherd takes care of and provides for His children—you and your children.

Our True Citizenship by Jim and Elizabeth George
Our True Citizenship

by Elizabeth George February 07, 2023

The temptation for worldly acceptance comes when you lose sight of your identity. As a believer in Christ you are a Kingdom citizen. You are a sojourner and a pilgrim, merely passing through this life on your way to eternity. Don’t get too settled in a world and a life that is passing away.

Keeping a Prayer Journal by Elizabeth and Jim George
Keeping a Prayer Journal

by Elizabeth George January 31, 2023

I know from personal experience that living a life of prayer is not easy. Our lives are filled with a multitude of activities that tend to crowd out time for prayer. How many times have you been guilty of telling someone that you would pray for them? Your heart genuinely yearned to be a part of bringing their need before the throne of God. And then what happened? I’m sure that, if you’re like me, more times than you would like to admit, you forgot about the promise to pray before you rounded the corner of the church building! Why? Because you didn’t write the request down.
