Teaching your kids to believe in God, when they can’t see Him.
My daughter, Faith, is a sharp little girl. She’s 10 years old at the time of this writing… and I’m beginning to notice more and more that she’s a thinker.
The two of us were talking a couple of weeks ago, about life, faith, fun… all kinds of stuff, when she came out with this question:
How can I believe in God, when I can’t see Him?
I told you she was a deep thinker.
Has your kid ever asked a question like that? What did you tell him/her?
I was very thankful that the LORD gave me a response that not only made sense to her… it clarified the issue for me too. I trust it will be helpful to you too…
Here’s how the LORD led me to answer her question…
It did… for her and for me.
God’s resources are like money in the bank
You and I (and our believing children) really DO have the Spirit of God living inside us. He’s there, unseen, as a Companion and Resource for life. As we begin to utilize the strength and wisdom that He provides us, we begin to see Him achieving things in our lives and attitudes, that only He can do.
It takes faith to act like He’s there, but when we do, He comes through… just like the money in the bank.
Teach this concept to yourself.
“Borrow” my illustration and teach it to your children. Don’t wait for them to ask, bring it the subject up yourself. Point your family toward a habit of recognizing that Jesus is in you, ready to do amazing things through you, all to bring glory to Himself. It’s a reality you can bank on.by
