Children have to learn for themselves

One of the most important things that a parent can do is teach their children dependence on God. Let your children see you pray and commune with God. Let them see you worship Him and love Him. Teach them to go to the scriptures when they have a need or a concern. Here is an example of how to do this. The enemy tries to plant fear in our kids. He will introduce fear to them in a way that they can’t define what fear is and why they are afraid, but they just know that they are afraid. Psalm 27:1 is a scripture to stand on . . . meditate which means to say over and over, when a child is afraid. You can find the scripture for the child if he or she is too young to do that, but the child needs to meditate and pray it so that faith will come and he or she won’t be scared anymore. Empower your children with the Word of God. They have to learn to pray and seek God for themselves.
