Welcome to this new month! It is my prayer that God will shower His blessings on you. This month, we shall be examining the process of raising godly children. We understand that children are ours either by birth or adoption, but the process of raising them is key in securing their future. Therefore, this week, I shall be examining Raising Godly Children.
No one has the power to decide the family in which they are born. God does not make mistakes! For you to be born into that family, it is for a great purpose and for your good. So parenting is the process of raising children and providing them with the basic needs to ensure their healthy development into adulthood. So the way a child is brought up goes a long way in determining how the child will end up.
Factors that affect a child’s development include heredity, gender, hormones, natural environment and family influence. The Scripture clearly states that child training gives rest and the family has the most crucial impact in nurturing a child (Proverbs 22:6). The primary caregivers, such as parents, grandparents or elder siblings, of a child contribute to a child’s social and psychological development. When a child’s love language is discovered on time by the primary caregivers, it goes a long way to help and guide the child on the right training, and as such, this child matures to become an adult that is healthy and independent.
Therefore, a healthy child is a child whose spiritual, physical, mental and social well-being is balanced. Every child on earth is loaded with landmark treasures and has a divine assignment, and as parents, our input and contributions to each child’s life will greatly determine if the child will be able to stand the distractions of life and the test of time.
However, in case you have failed as a parent in your assignment, you can start afresh, and God is ready to restore your lost years. So, if you are not born again, please say this prayer of faith: Lord Jesus Christ, I come to You today. I am a sinner, and I cannot help myself. Forgive me of my sins and cleanse me with Your Precious Blood. Deliver me from sin and satan to serve the Living God. From today, Lord Jesus, I accept You as my Lord and Saviour. Thank You Jesus for saving me! Now, I am Born Again.
Congratulations! You are now born again and a child of God. He loves you and will never leave or forsake you. With this, you are guaranteed all-round rest and peace, in Jesus’ name! Please write or call to share your testimonies with me through firstname.lastname@example.org OR 08141320204
