Fighting For Your Children

” Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.”  Proverbs 22:6*

Eph 6:4 “And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord.” 

If you have spent any amount of time with Jesus, you will understand that He is deeply passionate and in love with children.  His children are always invited and welcome in His presence.  His children are never forbidden to come…never.  In fact, Jesus Loves the Little Children is not just a Sunday School anthem, but it is a proclamation of the very heart of God.

I believe that God is speaking a word of encouragement to parents.  For too long, I was tossed to and fro for my son.  The battle was so fierce for his life, that I really wanted to give up at times, but every time I got to the end of myself, the Lord would give me His love and His grace and His peace and His vision for Jackson.  I finally got the revelation that it takes Jesus to raise His child.  Go figure!  May you receive this encouragement in your toughest of battles.  Engage, be encouraged and call out to Jesus!  He is an ever-present help in time of trouble!

On another note, if you have loved your child(ren) on to eternity, I believe there is a special place of grace reserved especially for you.  You are a special one, and especially loved.  You have fought the worthiest of all battles and felt the complete devastation that this battle can bring.  The comfort we can have in this is knowing that Jesus does and will have the last word.  For us, we must wait on our Savior.

*Correction:  I sat and read this scripture as I did this video and something just didn’t compute.  You will see me look over because something just didn’t compute.  Last night when I figured out why it didn’t compute, I debated whether or not to post it because…The scripture does not say, “Train up a child in the way of the Lord, “, as I quoted. It really says, “Train up a child in the way he should go…”  I took the scripture listed below in Ephesians and combined them in my head.  I decided to go ahead and post it with the hope that you hear what God is saying to you as the Trainer.

Eph 6:4 “And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord.”   

2 Tim. 3:15 “…and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.”
