by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies – You Are A Watch Dog
Mother, you are the guardian of your little flock. It’s a 24/7 job! 1 Peter 5:8 tells us we must “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.” He wants to devour your children. He wants to get hold of their minds and infiltrate them with subtle deceptions against God and His truth. He wants to mar their spirits and take away their purity. He wants to destroy their souls.
This is why Satan hates mothers being in the home. They stand in his way. He wants them out of the way so he can do his work. He wants their children in day cares and the public education system that is becoming more and more foreign to everything that is biblical.
King David cried out that if we want our sons to be like plants grown up in their youth (mature and steadfast) and our daughters to be strong and beautiful like the pillars in a palace we have get rid of all that is foreign to God and His Word (Psalm 144:11-13).
Paul’s prayer for the Thessalonian believers is a great vision for your children. Pray and make it your passion that their “whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Thessalonians 5:23).
