In Day 2, we talked about confronting fear and finding comfort through faith and trust in the Lord.
“But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall be quiet from fear of evil.” – Proverbs 1:33
Said simply, s/he who turns to God and keeps His commandments will find peace and safety from evil. In my mind’s eye, it’s like a spiritual edition of “Rock-Paper-Scissors” yet, in this “game” of life, Honor beats Evil every time.
M46 Project Challenge: Talk to your children about how God can protect them from evil if they honor God.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for your loving protection. Thank you for your promise that my child will be quiet from the fear of evil. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Thoughts: To honor means to celebrate and recognize; as well, it means to fulfill an obligation. And so, to honor God is, perhaps, to celebrate and recognize Him openly and proudly, while keeping our obligation to adhere to His commandments. Do we talk with our children enough about the importance of the commandments and the veil of protection from evil that is found in our demonstrated commitment to Him?
Enjoy the weekend ahead! When we come back here, we will get into Proverbs 10:22. See you then.
Keep it Lit,
