PROMISE #137 – FRIDAY MAY 17, 2019
I will teach your children My ways and give them great peace.
Isaiah 54:13 (WEB)
All your children shall be taught of Yahweh;
and great shall be the peace of your children.
In today’s promise, we read how the Lord says that He will be faithful to teach our children His ways and give them great peace. For those of us who have children, this promise is very dear. God is a family man (so to speak). It was His idea to create a family structure where we would all be fruitful and multiply and have dominion throughout the earth. (Genesis 1:28)
His eyes are on our children and He promises to teach them His ways and to give them great peace. My wife and I have three adult children, one son-in-law and a little grand daughter. As any parent would, we desire for them to know the Lord’s ways and live a peaceful life. When I read today’s promise, my father (and grandfather’s) heart cries out ‘yes and amen!’
Whether your children are experiencing the fulfillment of this promise or not, don’t give up. Keep praying for them and believing that our Father’s heart is to bless our children more than we would want them to be blessed. May God give each one of us the grace to trust Him with the loving care of our kids. Our Father is indeed a family man and He will be faithful to watch over our children!
