You are welcome to another exciting time in the presence of the Lord. Last week, I brought you the introductory part of this month’s teaching. I, also, explained that the role of mothers can’t be quantified in the lives of her children.
This week, I shall be sharing on a special feature on what you, as a mother, need to cultivate in order to play your motherly role to your children:
In a bid to have more time for business concerns and other personal things, some parents send their children to boarding schools. Some parents have become too busy making money and succeeding business/career that they neglect spending time with their children. They are busy trying to make ends meet financially; but unfortunately, they seldom do.
I believe one of the reasons the efforts of such parents sometimes yield poor results is because they have neglected their primary responsibility of nurturing their children. Such parents see their children as burdens, rather than blessings from the Lord (Psalm 127:3).
Mothers, please create time to order and shape the lives of your children. Do not leave them at the mercy of circumstances and situations. Don’t allow them to learn from friends and T.V what you ought to teach them. Some children are faced with challenges too big for them to handle and they lack right counsel. If you are not there to give them the counsel required, they will turn to their friends, who might give them wrong counsel.
Realising the awesomeness of this responsibility, I personally cried to God for His grace. I don’t want to fail Him. I don’t want to face Him on the Day of Judgment and have nothing noteworthy to present, when asked what I did with the destinies committed into my hands. You will not be found wanting in Jesus’ name!
Furthermore, as a secrete for mothers, whose children have run away from home, are backslidden or being problematic, you can use the tool of your womb and breast as points of contact in praying for them. Wherever that child may be, you can call his name, put your hand on your womb or breast, make your declarations and establish them on God’s infallible Word, and it works!
Additionally, you must understand that it takes being born again to truly comprehend your role as a mother to your children. If you are not yet born again and you would like to, please pray this simple prayer: “Dear Lord Jesus Christ, I come to You today. I am a sinner. Forgive me of my sins and cleanse me with Your Blood. Deliver me from sin and satan to serve the living God. I accept You as my Lord and Saviour. Make me a child of God today. Thank You for accepting me into Your Kingdom.”
If you prayed this simple prayer, you are now a child of God. He loves you and will never leave you. Read your Bible daily, obey God’s Word and seek Christian fellowship (John 14:21).
Congratulations! You are now born again! All-round rest and peace are guaranteed you, in Jesus’ Name. Call or write, and share your testimonies with me through firstname.lastname@example.org; OR 07026385437 and 08141320204.
