This word today is for moms and dads and caregivers and parents everywhere. We have such a beautiful role and assignment to raise our children, knowing the voice of God. To raise them as strong men and women who follow Jesus with everything in us. And to me, parenting is a huge journey with Holy Spirit.
I don’t know about you, but when I first became a mom, it was a whole new world of unknown. I was doing things I had never done before. I’d never had a baby before. There’s so many new things. There’s so many opinions and ideas being thrown at you, telling you you need to do this and you need to do this, and this is how you need to raise your kid. But I want you to know that while it is healthy to take wisdom from people that you trust and are doing it really well, but ultimately we need to lean into what Holy Spirit is saying about how we raise our kids.
Every person is different, every child is different, but no one knows your child more than Holy Spirit, and He wants to partner with us in raising our children. And it is such a journey for me to lean into Him. Maybe it looks like not leaning into fear. Fear can be a huge thing that wants to creep its way in. But it’s important that we say no to fear and say yes to what Holy Spirit is doing. And we don’t parent based off of fears, but we parent based off of wisdom and truth and what Holy Spirit is saying to us today.
So I just wanna pray for you all right now. Father, I thank you that you have given us this beautiful assignment to raise our children into powerful men and women of God who know who they are, who know who you are, God. And I pray that you would give every person watching today tools in their tool belt and strategies and ideas from heaven on how to parent their children really well. I feel like some of you are gonna get brand new ideas, maybe dreams in the night and new strategies on what your child needs in this season. And I just wanna pray grace over you, that God could have picked anyone on the planet to parent your children, but He chose you. That means that you have what it takes to raise your children really well. So I just wanna bless you and encourage you and say you are doing a good job.
