"Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him." Matthew 6:8
As parent we have learned that there is a need to read every email, and every notice that comes home from school, because children will have a tendency to tell us what they need, but once we read the notice carefully we discover they did not need all they said they needed, they just thought they needed it.
The Lord Is Holding You
"Hold up my goings in thy paths, that my footsteps slip not." Psalm 17:5
Being lost is an experience each of us has had at least one time in our lives. It is not a good feeling when we do not know where we are, or how to get of where we are going. For some stopping and asking for directions is the only option, while for others it is not an option at all. When we decide to find our own way instead of asking for directions from someone who knows how to get to where we are going, we will more than likely be wandering longer than we really want to.
He’s Holding Your Hand
“For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, “Fear not, I am the one who helps you.” Isaiah 41:13 (ESV)
As parents we can remember holding the hands of our children as we crossed the street or just walking in a crowded place, because we wanted to make sure that our children were safe as we were walking. For the child it is a sense of security knowing that their parents are holding their hands, and as long as they are holding their parents’ hand, everything would be all right.
Faith Built On The Power Of God
"That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God." 1 Corinthians 2:5
If we took a moment to really think about it what we put our faith in, we will discover we have faith in more things than we would imagine. We have faith in people who sometimes let us down. We have faith in automobiles that can break down at the most inopportune times. We have faith in things that do not work right when we need them to.
