Rom. 8:37-39: No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord (NIV).
As we're raising our kids, it is a constant battle to connect with the truth of these words. In the midst of our fears and concerns, we may wonder how these promises play out in our everyday lives. Can God's love prevail when our kids walk through entitlement, disappointment, or brokenness? How can we be more than conquerors when we see our kids struggling with peer pressure, drug abuse, or sexual impurity?
The answer, of course, is to trust God! We can conquer the worst life throws at us and our kids when we choose to believe in His wisdom and promises. Receiving this peace is both simple and difficult because it requires us to risk putting our faith in Him.
When faced with fear and uncertainty, make a conscious choice to put your faith in the promises of God.
