Best Inheritance

Satan is hard at work trying to steal, kill and destroy our children and he is using every trick in the book to accomplish his goals. That includes alcohol, drugs, sex, movies, video games and anything else that will take their minds off Jesus! There are so many dangerous outside influences that raising Christian children in today’s world is more challenging than ever before. 1 Peter 5:8 tells us that the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Make no mistake - there is only one way to fight the enemy and that is to allow God to fight the battle! The Bible says in Isaiah 49:25, “For I will fight those who fight you, and I will save your children.” That is a promise from God that we can claim for our children. Many times parents have failed to introduce their kids to Jesus and then when their children grow up and turn from God, they suffer with guilt. Instead of wallowing in guilt and despair, pray this prayer, “Dear Heavenly Father, please forgive me for not being the parent you wanted me to be and don’t let their rebellion against me cause them to rebel against you. Oh Lord, I plead with you to save my children.” We can’t pray too many prayers for our children. God will honor the heartfelt prayers of parents - even long after we have passed away. Praying for our children is the best inheritance we could possibly leave them! Text: Malachi 4:6, Deuteronomy 11:18-21, Psalm 102:24-28, Proverbs 17:6
