Bringing scripture into the everyday lives of your children is a powerful and important tool when raising them. As adults, we turn to the Word of God when we face a difficult situation. What if you could bring that gift to your children?
Not only does bible study bring you closer to your children, it prepares them to be spiritual leaders in the world when they grow up.
The Bible is God’s way of speaking to us in our time of need. Paul describes the word of God as the “sword of the spirit” (Ephesians 6:17). As moms, we must always be aware that the devil is seeking those he can devour, even our babies. Bringing scripture into our children’s lives teaches them how to cut down the enemy when he comes, because when we speak the Word, the devil has to leave.
Sis, I know you look at your little ones as they play on the floor and while they sleep snuggly in their beds and you find it hard to imagine how fast they will grow…but they will. And, one day, they will leave the safety and guidance of your home. When that day comes, you will want them to be prepared in advance.
Your child will have a powerful tool in their spiritual arsenal and you can rest assured they are ready to face the world without you.
Teaching them the power of scripture now, creates a solid foundation for what they will inevitably face in the future. You want your child to know that throughout all stages and phases of their lives, God’s Word has an answer to every question, a solution for every problem, and hope for every trial.
There are 3 ways you can bring scripture into your child’s life:
- Memorize scripture together—Make sure that you are choosing scriptures that can be memorized based on your child’s age and ability.
- Choose scriptures that cover an area where your child needs help—Along with memorizing scriptures, begin to teach your children how to apply those scriptures to specific areas of difficulty or concern that they are facing.
- Pray scriptures over your children—Teach your children how they can use the Word of God in their prayer life by setting an example and praying scriptures over them.
Mamas, I urge you to add this to your daily routine. Teaching your children to love and respect the Word of God will strengthen their faith now, and long after you have raised them. For all of their lives, they will know and remember that God’s Word is a strong tool and that they have a future with Jesus forever.
Blessings as you soak in God’s Word with your children,
