This is the first post for the parenting section of Sow the Word. Let’s begin here talking about food. IDon’t kids always want to eat? Have you ever been in a situation where you felt like you wouldn’t have enough food to provide for your family; where you felt like you had to beg food to feed your children? Let’s talk about some scripture that you can stand on.
Psalm 37:25 teaches us that if we want our children to always have food to eat and never have to beg for it . . . we have to be righteous parents. This is a Word that we can stand on. Now the question that you may have, is how do I become righteous? What is righteousness? Righteous is being in right standing with God. Righteousness is not something that you can work for. It is something that you have to receive, and you receive it by receiving Jesus Christ as your personal savior. Let’s look at 2 Corinthians 5:21
For he has made him, who knew no sin, to be sin for us; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. 2 Corinthians 5:21
We were born into sin because Adam disobeyed God in the Garden of Eden. Jesus is the second Adam in that He took our sin on Himself and traded us sin for righteousness. So, if you receive Jesus, then you are righteous. That means you are back in right standing with God, the same position that Adam had in God before he and Eve sinned. Receiving Jesus is easy as Romans 10:9-10 shows you how to become righteous. All you have to do is confess and believe on Jesus. Pay close attention to the second part of this verse, because there is no righteousness apart from Jesus. There is self righteousness, but it is dirty because we are dirty apart from Christ.
Now, let’s say that you are righteous, and if you just received righteousness, congratulations and welcome to the family of God . . . you can now stand on this scripture that the children of the righteous will never go hungry. That means your children will always have food. So when things seem rough, and you don’t know where the food is going to come from . . . bring God in remembrance of His Word and confess with boldness that He promised that your children will not have to beg for bread. They will eat and grow strong and fulfill their purpose in the Lord. Reply to this post or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
