A promise of God to His people is that if you teach your children the ways of God, they will not depart from it in the end. I often hear Christians say, “You do the best you can and hope for the best!”
This is not God’s direction. God states the obvious in His Word, “If you train up your son or daughter in who I AM, they will not forget it!”
This promise started making more sense to me as the Holy Spirit constantly reiterated it in my heart. I began to realize, “Truly, if we can’t be assured that our children will be saved, what can we be assured of”? Children are the fruit of everything we are. They are our multiplication. Do you think God’s perfect plan doesn’t involve your children being saved? Of course, it does! But why do we doubt this so easily? It’s because we don’t see God’s perfect plans come to pass in our lives, yet they are His perfect plans, which have the potential to be fulfilled. Therefore, there is no argument here, about the truth of this promise. The one argument that may stand is the question of your obedience to God’s Word, which will affect God’s promises in your life.
Be rest assured, if you teach your child to know and love God, through the message of His Word, they will grow up knowing and loving God!
Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it. (Proverbs 22:6)
