All your children will be taught by Yahweh, and great will be their peace and prosperity. Isaiah 54:13 TPT
And all your [spiritual] children shall be disciples [taught by the Lord and obedient to His will], and great shall be the peace and undisturbed composure of your children. AMPC
I have so many promises that I have lay hold of over the years and have continually spoken over my life, as well as the lives of others, but this one is a favorite. If you’ve ever had children, had friends with children or perhaps you’re a teacher (bless your ever-loving soul!), this will soon become a favorite of yours as well.
Regardless of choices or anything you may see happening in their lives, Gods promise over your children rings true. Hey, I know you’re going to find this hard to believe, but I was a challenge to my parents and look how I turned out! So it doesn’t matter what you see happening in this natural realm, God is able to deliver on His promises. This is your part—just believe!
“But Sandy, you don’t understand! You don’t see what I see!” Let me give you a little bit of an insight that took me years to understand; God doesn’t see things as you do–He sees so much more. He calls those things that aren’t yet as though they already are and He wants you to do the same.
Don’t continue talking the problem, talk the solution, the promise. Shift your focus from what you ‘see’ them doing, to what God sees them doing. If you can’t see that, you’ll never believe for that. Ask Father to show you how He sees your children. Ask Him for the plans He has for them so that you can get your words and vision corrected and speak them continually over their lives.
This also works for your spouse. No you can’t choose for them, but in faith, hold fast to the promises and let God do His perfect work in their hearts. Your job is to speak the Word, stand unwavering on the Word and let the Word work. You don’t need to say a word to them, the Word will work on it’s own.
Father, thank you for Your powerful Word that’s always working. It’s working when I’m sleeping and when I’m awake. You sent Your Word (Jesus) to save, heal and deliver all who are oppressed, depressed or possessed. There’s nowhere Your Word had not been or will not go, no one can run or hide that You can’t find them. Change our vision! Give us eyes to see, ears to hear and a heart to obey. It’s in Jesus’ name, Amen.
