Are your children suffering? Are you struggling? What if knowing and doing just one thing could change it all! So many people don’t realise this, but it’s incredibly powerful and it could just change your’s and your children’s lives forever!
Last week I shared a post about living free from guilt and anxiety. I wrote about how knowing what the Bible promises and speaking it over our children can change not only our circumstances but also our peace. I was asked to share some of these promises I referred to.
The Bible is full of so many incredible promises, but to fully live in the good of them we need to do a few things. We need to know these promises; know what our right is as children of God. We need to store them up in our heart so we remember them in those moments that we feel anxious, afraid, or oppressed. And we need to speak them out.
The Bible tell us death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits. (Proverbs 18:21). This means what you say WILL either create life or death. Your words can change your life! Read more about it here.
Here are a few of my favourites:
FEAR – You don’t need to live in it!
You shall not be afraid
– Psalm 91:5
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
– 2 Timothy 1:7
I will give peace in the land, and you shall lie down, and none will make you afraid
– Leviticus 26:6
If you make the Lord your refuge… no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your home. For he will order his angels to protect you wherever you go.
– Psalm 91:9-11
WHEN YOU FEEL ALONE – you’re not:
When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble.
– Psalm 91:15
WORRY OVER OUR CHILDREN’S FUTURE – You are not the only one raising them:
I will teach all your children, and they will enjoy great peace.
– Isaiah 54:13
WHEN YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO – He will show you if you ask:
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him
– James 1:5
IF YOU FEEL WORRIED WHAT YOU’RE DOING ISN’T GOOD ENOUGH:
The LORD… will bless all the work you do.
– Deuteronomy 28:12
WHEN YOU FEEL ANXIOUS (about anything) – He says you don’t need to worry about anything! Give it to God, and thank Him (something I think we often forget), and he PROMISES a peace that will guard you:
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
– Philippians 4:6-7
WHEN YOU WORRY OVER YOUR OR THEIR FUTURE:
The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the Lord holds them by the hand
– Psalm 37:23-24
WHEN YOU FEEL OPPRESSED – your enemies CANNOT conquer you:
You will chase your enemies, and they shall fall by the sword before you
– Leviticus 26:7
When I pray over my children I don’t just ask God for them, I remind Him of His promises. I speak them over my children. These are quite literally the promises of God to anyone who believes in Him, for us and our children. Confess them and store them in your heart and you will live in the good of them! x
