Children Representing the Kingdom

Updated: Nov 8, 2022

Let the children come to me for theirs is the kingdom of God!

By Mother of living

Praying the kingdom and the will of God for and with our children has never been more important in this our age and time; there are mothers who knew how special their children were, therefore took time to wait on the Lord for direction on the life of their children for example Rebecca, Elizabeth, Mary, Jochebed, the Zebedee's mom e.t.c

Without a doubt their children turned out to be God fearing leaders and we still celebrate them till today and name our children after them.

Can I name my children after yours, ..... can you do likewise to me....?

Why did they pray the will of God for their children? this is to bring their children to divine destiny, this means no wondering around the wilderness of life but concentrating on the path assigned to them by their Maker and lead them to the full blessing prepared for them.

Part of the challenges; according to Mark 4:19 and the cares of this age, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful." God wants us to look out for these things in our children's lives. our world today is surrounded by gadgets, media and if we don't get them for our children, we feel they are left behind amongst their pairs. Thank God for Technology, Gadgets are good but can be dangerous, so is most things in life we are in a techy world, eliminating it totally; will not help but training a child to take control of it, is a good practise. Here we also can apply one of the fruits of the spirit called self control.

There is time for everything, as parent we will know the right time and age to introduce them to different devices. "All things are lawful but not all things are helpful...."1 Corinthians 10:23

As parents our number one responsibility is to introduce them to the word of God and prayer; to connect with their Maker anytime! "Let the children come to me for theirs is the kingdom of God"

Remember to do this in an interesting way to delight them in the Lord and He will grant them the desires of their heart. Let's make it fun for them applying games, dancing, painting, singing and rapping (bringing their interest) to it.
