Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” (Matt.19:14 NKJV)  Children are God’s gift to man which should be nurtured and cherished as such. 

The Bible has much to say about children to parents or guardians, depicting how children should be reared, also illustrating the great pleasure they bring into the lives of those who can appreciate the gift.

The message of 127 Psalm declares, “Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb is His reward.  Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, So are the children of one’s youth.  Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them; They shall not be ashamed, But shall speak with their enemies in the gate.” 

GOD BLESS THE CHILDREN who are suffering at the hands of adults or peers, who are seeking to make their lives miserable. They have been placed in what seems to be, hopeless situations, but Father, I know You Are Faithful.    My heart is grieving for those who cannot defend themselves, against perverts and other perpetrators, who I call cowards, having the guile to deem it necessary to commit these capricious acts, while conveniently taking advantage of helpless children.

Our children are crying out, we must pay close attention to what they are saying.  If we won’t HELP, who will?  It’s time for The Church to rise up, stop talking but prayerfully give ear to the cries of despair.  We must be VIGILANT and BOLD enough to step forward and save our children from the violent acts of satanic forces, that’s strategitically seeking to destroy this generation of youth.

GOD BLESS THE CHILDREN who you have given to parents with a command, “Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.”(Proverbs 22:6)  This is a message of accountability which gives no room for excuses.  Faith is an action word that gives every parent, grandparent, neighbor, friend, family member, pastor, teacher, sibling, etc., the right to the blow the whistle, without compromise.

 Time outs for silence, as the blood of our children are crying from the graves.  The first murder recorded in the Bible is in Genesis 4:8-10 “Now Cain talked with Abel his brother and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose against Abel his brother and killed him.  Then the Lord said to Cain, “Where is Abel your brother?”  And he said, “I do not know.  Am I my brother’s keeper?”  And He said, “What have you done?  The voice of your brother’s blood cries out to Me from the ground.”

GOD BLESS THE CHILDREN as each parent(s) or guardian(s) prays over them daily.  Plea the Blood of Jesus over your children and teach them how to pray warfare prays over their lives and the lives of their peers.  We are living with a generation who are depending on us; to teach the ways of God, and not the ways of the world.  We are to teach our children how to seek God first.  Introduce them to THE BIBLE first. 

Corruption may breed in the minds and hearts of the wicked but HOLINESS shall prevail in the hearts and minds of the RIGHTEOUSNESS.  Let us BIND FORCES against the enemy and tell him with an ATTITUDE, NOT MY CHILD (REN).          

GOD BLESS THE CHILDREN.  HE is doing HIS part can He depend on YOU!
