1Tim.1.4 Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.
Note this, that Man is an expression of God, we are all familiar with this scriptures
Gen.1.26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
Gen.1.27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
What does it means to be Godly?
It means behaving like God, any parent who will train up their children in the way of the lord must possess the attribute of God. From the Scripture we are made to understand that God is love.
1John.4.8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
Every parents are expected to train up their children with love.
What is Parenting?
Parenting means the process of training (raising and educating) a child from childhood to adulthood.
Prov.22.6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
The paramount way a child ought to grow is the way of the lord in other words the way of righteousness, right standing with God.
John.14.6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
The only way that can secure the destiny of every child is Jesus.
The destiny of your children is expected to be wrapped in Jesus i.e being secured by Jesus.
There is a way (destiny) for every child, in which it is the duty of the parent to seek the face of God for, right from the conception of the child, because if you don’t do that and allow your child/ Children to go in line with that way, confusion may occur.
That your son or daughter must have full assurance of what he wants to become per time for example God’s Servant Bishop David Oyedepo Knew what God has apportioned for his children right from their birth.
When his first born was Given birth to, he ask God about the child then God told him another warrior has come and today the baby boy is now a Man of God.
Example of Jesus, even before his birth his destiny has been for told
Matt.1.21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
How To Secure The Destiny Of Your Children As A Parent.
- Introduce God to them early in life. 1 Samuel 3:13, 1Samuel 3:7
- Speak blessings into their life. Exodus 14:15
- Allow God to have his full course in their life. 1Samuel 3:9
- Be a worthy and Godly example unto them.
John.13.15 For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.
- Show love to them i.e train them in love. If your child act in a wrong manner immediately correct him/her because a child that refuse the training of his/her parent will be trained by law enforcement agent in a pitiable manner.
Father in the name of Jesus, let my children scale greater height in life and destroy any destiny wasters out to devour them.
Gen.22.17 That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;
