Saturday Steps of Faith #26

Steps of Faith


What are you believing God for?

Do you trust God enough to take Him at His word?
Not only for your neighbor or friend..., but for you?

Saturday Steps of Faith is our opportunity to publicly claim His promises for our lives. It is the place where we believe God for things great and small.
Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.  Proverbs 22:6
My hearts desire is for my son Jonathan to be a Mighty Man of God.  I want him to:
Love the Lord (his) God with all (his) heart and with all (his) soul and with all (his) mind and with all (his) strength.  Mark 12:30
...say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust." Psalm 91:2
...stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.  1 Corinthians 15:58

I want these things and so much more.  I want there to be a burning passion in his heart for the things of God, the people of God, the Word of God. 

Father,  before He was even born we gave Him back to you.  As parents made a commitment to raise Him according to You Word and Your precepts.  At the age of 7 he gave his heart to you.  I've seen him grow and flourish into a fine young man.  Lord, grow him to be a Mighty Man of God.  Give us the wisdom as parents to guide him.  Show Him the path You would have him to go.  Guard his heart and protect him from the evil one.  Do great things through Him that will bring you glory ~ Amen.

I stand believing with you today for your son! And I stand believing for my son! John 10:28, 29 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father's hand! The Lord will help us! 1 Cor. 1:5 For in him you have been enriched in everyway - in all your speaking and in all your knowledge!

Stand firm...believing! Love ya,
Julie :)

Lisa - I am believing GOd with you for your sweet boy! As a mom, there is nothing that brings us greater joy than our children loving the Lord in a mighty way!

Now I pray that for my grandbabies.

Love you today - stayed at a lockin at the church all night and was exhausted this morning so didn't get a post done.

A great post Lisa. I admire your love and dedication to your son. You are a great example of how a Christian mother should give their children back to God and depend on God to instill virture into them.

God bless you!

Lisa,

I love how you're praying the Word over your son.

His word is powerful. It penetrates.

He loves when we pray His word back to Him.

I'm asking Him to save my son-in-law. One verse that I pray is Psalm 44:26.

Rise up and help us; redeem us because of Your unfailing love.

Thank you for this thought-provoking devotional.

Sweet dreams.
