Dealing With The Spirit Of Fear In Children

Dealing With The Spirit Of Fear In Children

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9 (ESV) The first thing in that passage says we should be strong and courageous. Strength is needed to do anything in life. Fear is a tool of the devil to weaken our resolve to doing anything. The Lord is always with us wherever we go. We should not be frightened or afraid of any harm. Yes, there will be instances where we might be overwhelmed, but the assurance from…

My Children Are Grateful At All Times

My Children Are Grateful At All Times

Ps 6:5 (KJV) For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks? Many of us lack the culture of gratitude. We seem to believe our parents will always have it figured out. “They are parents anyway, they should. If they don’t, why did they bring me to the world?” It doesn’t really work that way. When you grow up, you will realize adulthood is hard work. The psalmist is asking us one question we always ignore. He asks if anyone could give thanks in the grave. The answer is no one can.…

My Children Seek God Early

My Children Seek God Early

The bible is filled with several promises for us to profit with. There are promises for good health, promotion, assurance, favour, mercy, strength, provision and so on. One of such promises is found in Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:Isa 55:6 (KJV) It can be frustrating searching for your Sunday school notebook especially on Sunday morning. If care is not taken, you might have to forfeit it and use another note, so your parents don't leave you at home. There is a time to seek the Lord. There is a…

The Word Guides My Children

The Word Guides My Children

The word guides. The word guards the heart. Now the heart is perhaps the most important part of the human body. An anomaly in the heart is not what anyone prays for. May our heart not pack up in Jesus name. Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life.Proverbs 4:23 AMP One way to safe guard our heart is to carefully sieve what we allow inside and one way this can be done is through the word. The word guides and guards. Parents, let's teach…

O sing unto the Lord a new song; for he hath done marvellous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory.Ps 98:1 (KJV) What a psalm! Do you remember the song of Moses and Miriam and the children of Israel? After they crossed the red sea? These were grateful beings. Take a look at a part of their song of gratitude. And Miriam answered them, Sing ye to the…

How Children Can Walk In Victory

How Children Can Walk In Victory

Aside from the salvation of our souls, another redemption package we received is victory over death. Yes, victory over death. And we have to walk in victory. “O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.1 Corinthians 15:55-57(ESV) Children, death has been conquered by Jesus. His death and resurrection on the cross of Calvary has done it all. Let's walk in victory! The sting of death is sin,…

My Children Are A Blessing

My Children Are A Blessing

Children are a blessing. The more children you have, the more blessed you are (little wonder the bible says happy is man who has his quiver full of them). There is a Scripture I will show you now; one that we need to rejoice and be glad about. In that scripture, God was decreeing and declaring that apart from being a blessing, our children are gifts from Him. Take a look at that Scripture: Children are a blessing and a gift from the LORD.Psa 127:3  CEV How would you treat a gift you received from someone you esteem?That is exactly how…

How To Raise Disciplined Children

How To Raise Disciplined Children

As godly parents, one of your priority should be how to disciplined children. You must remember that you will give account to God over them. Don't hesitate to discipline children. A good spanking won't kill them. As a matter of fact, it may save their lives. Proverbs 23:13-23 (GNT) Discipline is good. The bible encourages it. Disciplined children are a blessing because those are the children that are well developed and balanced in society. The society is filled with undisciplined children, you don’t want your children to be a part of the statistics. Love corrects. If you truly love your…

Who Is Your Friend?

Who Is Your Friend?

Who is your friend? That is one question that you must ask and answer if you desire to become the best of who you are meant to be. Julius had a problem. He needed a solution. This issue had been eating deep into him. He just couldn't wrap his head around it. He began to emaciate as a result of excessive thinking. He wasn't looking like the Julius everyone knew. His parents wondered what could be wrong with their once lively lad. He knew he had to find a solution to whatever was wrong with him. Just like a flash,…

Dear Child, You Are A Special Gift

Dear Child, You Are A Special Gift

I want to bring to our remembrance something really important this morning. Dear child, you are a special gift! Yes, you! You really are. It is something we know, but we sometimes allow the devil fill our minds with negative and false thoughts. This was exactly what happened to Jude. Jude was always moody. He was always downcast and sad. He just couldn’t fathom certain things going on around him. One thing that kept coming to his mind was that his parents loves his siblings more than they love him. He didn't see himself as a special gift. He fought…

Making Better Health Decisions

It's time to talk about health decisions. Your health is another important area of your life that you should make changes in.

May we not experience such in Jesus name. Here's a fact you should know - it's the body you take care of now that will aid you when you are old. Don't wait till you are thirty or forty before you start taking your health seriously.…

Making Better Financial Decisions

You have to learn to make better financial decisions as a child. Let me share a little of my childhood story with you. From time to time, especially during the Yuletide, whatever financial gift I got went back to my parents. I remember my parents taking any financial gift I received from me with the promise of keeping it for me. Well, I never got my money back. I always forgot to ask. How do you even ask about such money? Making good financial decisions highly impacts how you view and spend money. The following questions will help you make…

How To Make Better Academic Decisions

How To Make Better Academic Decisions

Another area to review this year is your academics. Not doing well in school is a slap to your Christianity, so you must strive to make better academic decisions. Do you know we are meant to top our classes? Deut 28:13 (NKJV)And the Lord will make you the head and not the tail; you shall be above only, and not be beneath, if you heed the commandments of the Lord your God, which I command you today, and are careful to observe them. That’s the dominion mandate. That’s God's original intent for you. One who is not spiritual ought not…

How To Make Better Spiritual Decisions

How To Make Better Spiritual Decisions

Do you think you are making better spiritual decisions? Your spirit man is the most important part of your life. Many people take care of other aspects and leave out the spirit man. This ought not to be so. “The Holy Spirit is the one who gives life, that which is of the natural realm is of no help. The words I speak to you are Spirit and life. But there are still some of you who won’t believe.”John 6:63 TPT Your spiritual life is very important to your advancement in life. It's on it that all other aspects of…
