Whether we want to believe it or not, there is a real enemy after our children. They need our protection! We can’t let the Devil win the battle for our children!
Choosing not to believe that there is an enemy of our souls, doesn't make the devil disappear. Instead, he becomes an invisible, evil predator, who is picking our children off, right and left, right from under our noses. 1 Peter 5:8 "Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour."
The suicide rate and drug abuse in teens are drastically rising. They need a hope...an anchor for their souls for when life gets too tough to bear. Hebrews 6:19 "We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure." Like a ship going through a dark foggy storm that is anchored to a port, it is being drawn in slowly to safety. Such is a child of God, we are eternally tethered to the throne of God, being drawn into His presence through the dark foggy storms of life. His light shines through the darkness giving us hope, purpose and direction!
Had I not had this hope, as a child of God, I would have committed suicide as a teen. Luckily, my Aunts prayers, and her peace filled life, always pointed me back to God. Giving me an anchor for my soul, when the dark storms engulfed me.
Protect your children! Pray fervently over them and teach them about the Power of our almighty God, The Creator of ALL things! Find a Bible teaching, Spirit filled church to get plugged into. A family you trust and that will help build you and your family up to be Valiant, might warriors for God!
And, don't ever underestimate the powerful influence of the evil one!
