You have a moment with
one of your precious children when you realize – you’ve completely failed
At that moment, they don’t seem so
they rip something out of their sibling’s hands;
they have an absolute
melt down in front of an entire Target audience
… and your response is less
Once you take a deep
breath and reconcile with them, your heart is heavy knowing that you didn’t
respond the way you should.
for them, and for us, we have a Father whose love is unfailing.
Psalm 33:20-22 we read:
wait in hope for the Lord;
he is our help and our shield.
our hearts rejoice,
for we trust in his holy name.
your unfailing love be with us, Lord,
even as we put our hope in you.
Psalmist says it another way in Psalm 6:4:
Lord, and deliver me;
save me because of your unfailing love.
our hope, our help, and our shield.
is him we can trust in, who delivers us and saves us.
His love is unfailing.
When you have that moment or moments during
your day when you feel like you have failed, rest in the Lord.Wait “in hope” for Him because we trust that
he is working out his plan in us, and also the plans he has for our kids.
Ephesians 1:4 & 18 confirm this.
before he laid down earth’s foundations, he had us in mind, had settled on us
as the focus of his love, to be made whole and holy by his love. Long, long ago
he decided to adopt us into his family through Jesus Christ.
that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the
hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his
holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe.
point our kids to the only love that is unfailing.
Let's pray the following over our children today:
you are gracious and compassionate; slow
to anger and rich in love. Thank you that in the moments we fail our children
that your love never fails.We pray that
they would wait in hope for you, knowing it is you that is their help and
shield.We pray that their hearts would
rejoice because they trust in you.We
pray that they would put their hope in you, their savior and deliverer.
