Provide your children the direction they need
September 22, 2009
When Enoch had lived 65 years, he fathered Methuselah.
Enoch was someone who knew how to walk with God. But what motivated him to do so?
One day Enoch was walking along living life his own way, and then something happened and he turned around and began walking in a new direction… walking with God.
Now if you've been around a while, you'll recognize that Enoch's change in direction is the very definition of repentance. But what caused him to change direction?
Well, one answer might be that he had a son, Methuselah. And in the Scripture, just after the mention of his son's birth, we read that Enoch walked with God.
A child changes things in your life, doesn't it? It did mine.
To this day I remember how motivating it was for me to realize the responsibility that I had as a parent to set the direction for our children. And I knew I couldn't do it on my own.
You see, it's impossible to live the Christian life in power and victory unless you walk with God. And this moment, regardless of the direction you are walking, you can turn and begin to walk with God.
If you are a mom or dad, grandparent, aunt, or uncle, you have the best reason in the world to walk with God. These are difficult times and the children in your life are desperate for godly direction and guidance.
So be like Enoch, whose children knew their father walked with God!
IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO LIVE THE CHRISTIAN LIFE IN
POWER AND VICTORY UNLESS YOU WALK WITH GOD.
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
