SCRIPTURE: “They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the Lord, and their offspring with them.” – Isaiah 65:23
Now that you have sown with tears, just like every diligent farmer who eagerly awaits the harvest time, you are looking forward to reaping with joy. Unfortunately, some people never looked back at the seeds they planted. Carelessly, the weeds have overgrown and the plants are choked up. How then can they produce fruits, not to talk of reaping with joy. It is all about caring and nurturing the plant to see that it is growing healthily. This is the life of your child, anything contrary will either hinder the growth, stagnate it or the plant dies off. May you not weep over your children, in Jesus’ name.
What seeds are you sowing into your child’s life, good or bad? Seeds of good words, moral excellence that would make them grow into responsible adults. The Seed of God’s word right from childhood to adulthood that would make them grow in the way of the Lord( Prov. 22:6), and never depart from it. Are you striving to give them sound education, teach them the dignity of labour and diligence? Do you sow the seeds of self discipline in every area of life, teaching them to cultivate the Fruit of the Spirit, crucify the flesh and flee from every appearance of sin and iniquity, but embrace the grace and mercy of God?
Parents are God’s stewards assigned to look after the children and be accountable to the Almighty, because they are God’s heritage. Lois and Eunice, grandmother and mother of Timothy, sowed good seeds into his life, such that he became a committed disciple of Paul and a reputable man of God. The same goes for the daughters’ of Phillip, who turned out to be vessels of honour unto God. But Eli the priest, sowed the seeds of compromise and carelessness into his sons’ lives, who reaped premature death and he the loss of priesthood. A complacent and compromising parent he was! He lost all!
Realise that when you grow old, your children’s children shall be your glory(Prov17:6). This is the divine mandate that God pronounced upon mankind in Gen.1:28: to be fruitful, multiply subdue and replenish the world. What a delight to see generations come forth, prospering in the things of the Kingdom. Let God work in you and through you to get this glorious work done. Even after you have gone to be with the Lord, your generations shall continue to prosper in the Lord.
- Father let my life and family speak of Your glory, in the name of Jesus.
- My children and I shall continue to be for signs and wonders, in the name of Jesus.
- Anti-harvest spirits, my life and family are not your candidates, die, in the name of Jesus.
- Powers that want me to sow for another to reap, die a shameful death, in the name of Jesus.
- O God, arise and waste the wasters in my life and family, in the name of Jesus.
- My children, become fruitful vine, in the name of Jesus.
- Father multiply my joy over my children, in the name of Jesus.
