As parents, we have the amazing task of teaching and training our kids so that when they leave home, they’ll have a solid foundation and the tools they’ll need to be successful in life. That can seem like a pretty overwhelming job!
As our kids approach the time when they step out on their own, we may think,Where has the last 19-20 years gone? Did I invest enough time in them? Do they have everything they need? Will they make it on their own without going stupid?
Mom and Dad, be assured that if you’ve done your part to teach and train them, God will do His part to keep them and bring the principles you’ve instilled in them back to their remembrance.
Keep praying for them, and don’t allow yourself to get into fear. Trust in God’s Word that says, “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6 KJV).
Believe that the foundation you’ve built inside of your kids is so strong that they just can’t be beaten down no matter what life throws at them! They will fulfill the plans God has for them and be truly successful in life!
THE TAKE AWAY
Parents, always remember that God loves your kids more than you do. As your kids prepare to leave the nest, don’t let the devil get you into fear. Stay in faith, and keep praying and confessing the Word over them daily. Be confident that God’s got this!
