SPOKEN WORDS IN ACTION - PART 3
WEDNESDAY 11 OCTOBER 2023
Within the mind realm, you can visualise the noblest accomplishments for your children and the brightness of their glorious future. So do not deaden such consciousness, instead, awaken it within your inwardness - through your mind and spirit. Whatever good you desire for your children starts from the mind - in varying degrees. Don't ever identify them with being a failure or with being bad, come what may.
Reference: Hebrews 11:20 New International Version (NIV) "By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau in regard to their future."
We like to think about a great future; however we must learn to act like Isaac as we do so, because he taught us how the words of blessing he spoke concerning his children were connected to and interwoven with their future.
Speaking about fundamental Word declarations, it also involves communicating the Scriptures to our children on a regular basis, because it changes their lives in a very dramatic way. Why? Because of the power dynamics of the Word of God. Parents, your words have the indomitable voice to create the platform for their huge success in the spiritual realm first, whether or not you believe it, and it has the ability to shape their opinion in a godly way.
I once reasoned in this manner: That there is no "completely guaranteed" data about the future of your children; only the data you have about the past and present. And you cannot fully relax with the past and present data and just conclude that it is going to be well with them as time goes on. This is because their past consists of memory which involves the preservation of images imprinted in your mind from their previous experiences.
Therefore, in the present moment, you should welcome imaginations that consist in constructing the right and bright future, which will not duplicate the past records, experiences and outcomes, but beat them in a surpassing manner. Now the only accurate data concerning their future can be located in the Word of God, and it helps to secure their future in an assured manner, as you apply the Word to their lives prophetically. So don't ever leave their future to probability or fate.
Isaiah 54:13 says, "All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children" (NKJV). Aside from speaking over their lives and future, always teach them the Word of God, and let them know that without Christ, they can do nothing. In doing so, you allow the Lord to take over their lives with constant predominance in all affairs connected to their existence, thereby determining their eventualities.
Train them to shun evil practices and to refrain from every wrong communication, as well as detach themselves from all appearances of evil. Always remember that 1st Corinthians 15:33 reads, "Do not be so deceived and misled! Evil companionships [communion, associations] corrupt and deprave good manners and morals and character" (AMPC). Once you get them to be well established in godly expressions, it strongly implies their total dependence on the Lord. To that effect, Proverbs 22:6 says, "Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it" (NLT).
Understand that your emotional wellbeing is also related to the degree at which you're raising your children in the way of the Lord. Yes, we can upgrade and enhance their behavioural inclination, when we train them under the light of God's Word. In doing so, we also disconnect ourselves from any painful future experiences, as well as dissatisfaction, emptiness, intolerable behaviour, lack of fulfilled life and potential negativity that could've resulted, if they were left to lead a wayward life. Stay tuned for part 4. Shalom!
Scripture Reading - Psalm 127:3; Proverbs 1:8-9; Matthew 19:14; Proverbs 17:6; 3 John 1:4.
Exuberant Declaration: I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth and divine prosperity. They live a victorious life everyday and they are more than a conqueror in Christ Jesus. Their portion is blessed of the Lord; they are highly favoured and protected from evil wind of evil, corruption, violence and destruction, for the Lord shields them in His pavilion forever. Hallelujah!
