Maybe you are not a homeschooling mom but you are facing the lies everyday as well, "Did God really say_________?" Fill in the blank! Fear and all the what ifs can leave us defenseless and that is what the enemy wants. We however do not have to let him do this to us. As my handsome 8 year old son has to quoted to me several times in the last week "For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love and self-discipline" 2 Timothy 1:7. (Don't you just love when the Lord speaks through your children?) And our pastor reminded us last Sunday "So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you." James 4:7. I think humility is really the key here! I can NEVER teach these children in my own power. When we come humbly before the Lord and let Him lead, I believe there is nothing we can't accomplish! And with the Lord beside us, it often turns out much better than we ever anticipated.
As I begin my day with my children, I know there will be challenges. Bind the enemy from my mind and my home. I know that you have changed my life and you bring, power, love and self-discipline where I cannot. I have heard you clearly and I know you will help me. Thank you for my children and the charge you have put upon my life as a mom.
