Today we will be examining “My Children Seek God Early.” It is good for your children to get to know God later in life, but early is better.
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 time to serve the Lord.
God is saying a time is coming when you will seek me and you won’t find me.
A time is coming when you will call my name and you won’t hear a word from me.
May that not be our portion in Jesus’ name.
The above verse tells us that there comes a time when the Lord may not be found. Hence, it is wise for us to put them in the way of the Lord from the cradle.
Children, now is the best time to seek the Lord.
Do you remember what Solomon said?
Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them;Ecclesiastes 12:1 (KJV)
A time is coming when you won’t find pleasure in all these things. Now that you are young, maximize the opportunity.
As parents, we are to ensure our children seek God early in life. No one is too young to seek God. Josiah became King at a very tender age and he ruled well.
As long as your children can call on you, they should be taught how to call on God. God will answer because he is interested in children.
My Children Seek God. My children call on the Lord. Early in life, they turn to the Lord. Amen
Lord, help me to seek you early.
