I was praying this morning for my son. You and I know as moms that we can't be everywhere with our kids. It can be a very scary senario when we want to protect them from every kind of evil that permeates our society and make sure they grow in the fear of the LORD.
Let's face it ,, we can't be everywhere. We can't protect them from everything. We are limited. We can only do so much. But GOD is not limited. HE is Spirit and HE is everywhere. WE for the most part know this and STILL fret. WHY?
I don't know about you but I'm not satisfied with fretting knowing GOD is supposed to do HIS GOD thing and I shouldn't feel like this. I want more confidence in the LORD that although my son is a baby in Christ, ,God really is going to make sure he grows my son to fear HIM. I want to have more confidence knowing when my son is away I CAN be sure that although things do happen God IS there and protecting him. so why does it seem like nothing is happening? God says in His word many truths. What is it about SEEM compared to the TRUTH? Why can't we get past the "seems like" and believe the truth? I think it's a variety of things but mostly because we don't spend time with the LORD in prayer and His word.
I prayed HARD to the LORD please show me HOW I can KNOW the TRUTH and not what SEEMS LIKE what's going on. Then, He brought up that passage that says, "my people perish for lack of knowledge". I thought of God's promises and how I really don't know ALL his promises and maybe if HE gave me verse today I would have more confidence and less fretting. He gave me Proverbs 14:26 that says "He who fears the LORD has a secure fortress and to his children it will be a REFUGE." <<<That brings me CONFIDENCE as a mom. Why? because that verse tells me that I don't have to be everywere when all I have to do is FEAR THE LORD where I am and that my fearing the LORD will be a REFUGE to my son. WOW,, relax ladies with your children and start fearing the LORD where you ARE and stop thinning yourself out worrying. Let HIM be your Secure Fortress .. Praise the LORD
