Today’s exhortation – our children are safe
There’s a wonderful promise from The Lord for us and our children which says, “But thus says the LORD: “…I will contend with him who contends with you, And I will save your children.” (Isaiah 49:25). What a blessed assurance for parents. In today’s climate, parents are very worried for their children’s welfare and those fears are justified, but we can trust God to keep them safe. Surely He loves them more than we ever could. Jacob was like any parent today. He was deeply sad for the supposed loss of his son Joseph and became afraid to let his youngest son Benjamin leave his side. But, what he didn’t know was God was keeping his son Joseph safe and well just as He promised.
Your child may be struggling in school or may have become involved with the wrong crowd or using drugs or committing crimes, but I believe if we’ve committed them to The Lord, He will protect and save them. It may seem as if all is lost as was in Joseph’s case but God has everything under control. The word of God says, “All your children shall be taught by the LORD, And great shall be the peace of your children.” (Isaiah 54:13). We know His word never fails. Have a blessed week. Amen.
