Believing God's Word for our Children


Being our children's primary educator sometimes fills us with fear and trepidation. The enormity of this responsibility could overwhelm even the most faithful servant of the Lord. Yet we don't have to give in to fear because God has given us many promises for our children. The question we must ask is this: Do we believe God's Word or our doubts and fears? Let's look at some promises from the Bible that we can stand on.

God thought about our children before He even created the world.

For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight.  Ephesians 1:4

God has already purposed and planned what our children will be and do.

For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.  Ephesians 2:10

God's plans for our children are for a great and hopeful future, wherein they will prosper.

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.  Jeremiah 29:11

God will lead and guide us as we raise our children and make choices for them.

For this God is our God for ever and ever; he will be our guide even to the end.  Psalm 48:14

God has great plans for your little ones. Don't let doubt and fear steal the peace, joy, and confidence God wants you to experience in your homeschooling. Place your trust in His promises instead!
