How we have chosen to raised our children


Proverbs 22:6

“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” 

Speaking from the point of view of a mother, since I am one.  My husband and I have chosen to raise our children from the Biblical stand point and not man's.  This means we have tried to point them back to what God says and not given them mans point of view.  We are to go to the Lord for EVERYTHING that is spelled E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G.  Not some things, not for only the hard things, but everything.  Philippians 4:19 "But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus."  So what happens when we parents die.  Well since we have taught them to go to the Lord for all your needs.  I hope they will continue to do so.  Also the bible does teach us to seek wise counselors not fools.    Now sad to say they may decide to stray and seek out foolish counselors that give them mans point of view and not God's, because I have the scars to proove what mans thinking does.  Just the thought of that breaks my heart sooo badly words will never be able to share that.  So I am learning yet again how to stand in the gap as much as the Lord allows me.  I am reminded of foolish Rehoboam in I Kings 12, who took the Council of fools.  When anyone and I mean anyone pope, king, family members, teachers, preachers, anyone teaches or advices what is not in the bible (KJV) they are in for a world of hurt.
But in training your children to always seek the Word of God and have filled there hearts with verses from the Bible.  God has a precious promise to those who have done so.
 
Isaiah 55:11 "So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."

Galatians 6:9
"And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not."

Now my children may wonder away and may already be doing that, but there is enough of the Word of God that has been planted in them when they were younger that they won't be forgetting it.  So if I have sheltered my kids from the world and your upset about that.  If I have tried to keep them from those I thought were the wrong council tough, satan doesn't like it either and I am not worried about his feelings either.  My heart here is to pray, seek God's face and pray for my children to do the same. Oh, and the bible does say that James 5:16  "Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much."

The hour of Christ return draws nigh.  We are closer now then ever before.  I would emplor those that are having a hard time with my children to look at the true enemy satan and to look within their own hearts and lives and see where they stand with God.  Make sure your hearts are right and that you are able to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.  Cause sadly there will be soo many that cry in Matthew 7:21-23 "Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.  Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity."
