Praise be to the Lord my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle. He is my loving God and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer, my shield, in whom I take refuge.
There is a war waging within our families today. We war against our children growing up too fast. We war against the current of culture that is influencing our children. We war against the values and morals in our country. We find ourselves even warring against disciplining our children the way God teaches us in the Bible.
Do not fear. God has won the battle and He will be your deliverer, your shield in whom you can take refuge. God will teach you as a mom, and train you in His way. The best thing you can do as a mom is commit to follow after God. Too many times as a mom, we worry and fret about what our culture is teaching our children, and we waste all of our time worrying about what we cannot control. Instead, keep your eyes focused on God and His ways. Learn His ways by studying His word. Be committed in prayer each day and share your concerns and worries with God about your children. Ask God for wisdom. (James 1:5)
Father, I pray that I will not be fearful in raising my children in a world that is raging war against my children. Lord, I pray that I will keep my eyes on You as I parent my children. Give me boldness and strength to follow after You and not give into the pressure of what the world teaches. Thank You that I can find refuge in You.
