Children are precious, are’nt they? Innocent, lively, quick to grasp, and very sensitive too. That’s how God intended children to be. And God LOVES little children. As a young girl, I always used to visualise Jesus playing hide n seek with the little Children, telling them stories and just enjoying the presence of little children. Even when Jesus was tired at the end of the day with much ministering, though His disciples wanted Him to get some rest, Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me….. ” Matthew 19:14. Jesus loved little children and just being around with them, would have refreshed Him, I’m sure!
Because God has a special place for little children in His heart, the attack of the enemy to get little children into his control is all the more fierce.
Satan is constantly battling to grab our children away from us. The anger and the rifts that he brings between parents and children, seems to be on the rise. If you look around at the world today, we see how the lives of young teenagers are ripped apart. The enemy is relentlessly working round the clock to tear away the Children and young teens from the parents showing them the lustful pleasures of the world. And some of the decisions that young teens hastily make, leads them to a lifetime of regret. And what heartbreaks happen after that! All the while, the heart of the parent cries out to their loving son/daughter, but the seed of the enemy seems to prevail over the tears of Mom and Dad.
Satan has NO MERCY for our children. He is prowling around our children to catch them young, coz young minds can be easily captured. The cartoon shows that teaches them arrogance, the video games that teaches them to shoot and kill, and the friends and peer circle which influence them in the ways of the world is just so strong. Because Satan shows our children No mercy, NEITHER CAN WE SHOW HIM MERCY. ‘Rip apart’ everything you believe can sow the wrong seeds in your child’s heart.
Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it. Proverbs 22:6
The first few years of a child’s life is extremely precious, coz it can be easily moulded. God’s command to every parent:
“These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.” Deuteronomy 6:6,7
Above all, dear Mom, PRAY!!! Maybe our eyes don’t see the things that go on in the spiritual realm, but trust me there is a huge battle going on for the soul of your child in the heavenlies. So PRAY, for the salvation of your Children right from the time they are born. Place your hands on your Children and pray that THEY WILL BE PROTECTED FROM THE LIES OF THE DEVIL. Cover them with the blood of Jesus and Pray.
God’s blood around our Children and your continuous intercession for your Children will build a spiritual wall around your Child that the enemy just can’t break into!!!! And one day we will thank YOU, DEAR MOM, for standing in the Gap for your precious little One!!!!
Have a fantabulous month ahead!!!!!!!!!
