TEXT: PSALM 127:3-5
3) Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
4) As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.
5) Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.
KEY VERSE: ISAIAH 43:7
Even every one that is called by My name: for I have created him for My glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.
God is the giver of children. Every child given by God has a purpose to fulfill in His will.
And he lifted up his eyes, and saw the women and the children; and said, Who are those with thee? And he said, The children which God hath graciously given thy servant.
No child comes into the world by accident or without a divine purpose. It is God that gives children. He gives them by His own grace to mankind. Children are ignorant, innocent little human beings, male and female, conceived and brought into this world of sin and Satan, in order to fulfill the will of God their Creator. God gave them for a purpose, to fulfill His will. That is why you should not look commonly on the child God gave you. He is given to you by the grace of God to fulfill the will of God.
Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for Thou hast created all things, and for Thy pleasure they are and were created.
Your marriage may be flawed or maybe you gave birth to the child out of wedlock or through some immoral act. This flawed process does not negate God's plan for the child. You may even have decided with your spouse that you have had enough children so you are not having any more; but alas, another one came! Don't call it an accidental birth. That child is a precious gift from God and he or she must be treated as such. The great king of Israel, Solomon, was the son of Bathsheba whom King David had killed her husband in order to marry her. This displeased the Lord. Yet, the faulty foundation of Solomon's birth did not stop God's divine purpose in his life.
Every man and woman is created by God to fulfill divine purpose on earth and for the glory and pleasure of God. See in every child the hand of God directing him or her to a sure destiny and do all you can to help him or her fulfill that purpose. Don't turn yourself into a stumbling block because you will not be guiltless. Don't underrate or write-off any child because you are not his Creator.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Every child has a glorious destiny set before him or her.
SONG FOR THE DAY: Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world…..
BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY: Psalm 62-64; Romans 1
