Your Children. O LORD!

Genesis 50:20-21 (NIV) 20 You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives. 21 So then, don’t be afraid. I will provide for you and your children.” And he reassured them and spoke kindly to them.

Lamentations 2:18-19 (NIV)

18 The hearts of the people

cry out to the Lord.

You walls of Daughter Zion,

let your tears flow like a river

day and night;

give yourself no relief,

your eyes no rest.

19 Arise, cry out in the night,

as the watches of the night begin;

pour out your heart like water

in the presence of the Lord.

Lift up your hands to him

for the lives of your children,

who faint from hunger

at every street corner.

Isaiah 49:18 (NIV)

Lift up your eyes and look around; all your children gather and come to you. As surely as I live,” declares the Lord, “you will wear them all as ornaments; you will put them on, like a bride.

Isaiah 49:24-25 (NIV)

24 Can plunder be taken from warriors,

or captives be rescued from the fierce[a]?

25 But this is what the Lord says:

“Yes, captives will be taken from warriors,

and plunder retrieved from the fierce;

I will contend with those who contend with you,

and your children I will save.

Isaiah 54:13 (NIV) All your children will be taught by the Lord, and great will be their peace.

Hosea 4:6 (NIV) my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. “Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the law of your God, I also will ignore your children.

Acts 2:39 (NIV) The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call.”

2 John 1:4 (NIV) It has given me great joy to find some of your children walking in the truth, just as the Father commanded us.

You, O Lord

Provide for our children


Lift up our hands and cry out in the night for our children

So that

All our children gather and come to us

You, O Lord

Tell us captives will be taken from warriors


Let the Lord contend with those who contend with us

So that

Our children—You, O Lord–will SAVE them!

You, O Lord

Will teach our children

So that

Great will be the peace of our children


You, O Lord

Tell us we have rejected knowledge & ignored the law of God


Are destroyed, rejected

So that

The Lord ignores our children

Which do I choose?  Will The Lord our God CALL ME?  Will my children and I and all who are far off receive HIS PROMISE?  The Father commanded us to walk in the truth and it brings Him great joy when He finds some of our children walking in HIS truth.

O Lord, God Almighty, I want to please YOU and be called by YOU, not rejected and ignored by You because I reject and ignore YOU.  Thank You for your promises for our children.  O Majestic Lord, we cry out to You and say thank You for saving our children.

In Jesus name.  Amen

Which do you choose?

Are you seeking the Lord and learning His precious Word?

Are you walking with or without God?

Do you want the promises for yourself and your family?
