KNOWING YOUR STRENGTH AS A MOM
Knowing your strength as a mom is not just the physical strength that you have but your ability to stand strong in prayer for your family, which begins with you having personal relationship with God.
The two stories in 2 Kings 4:1-37, shows us the resilience and the strength of a mother who determines to safe her child or children at all cost.
One of these two women was a widow, poor and in debt. The other woman was rich but has no child. They both has something in common which has to do with children.
The widow’s children were going to taken as slaves by her debtors, the rich woman (Shunammite) son who was her promised child died, but both women fought for their child/children even though the circumstances surrounding their cases was not pretty, (2Kings 4:1-37) but with their determination, they got what they wanted.
All that I’m trying tell you mom, is don’t give-up on your child/children. Know your strength in the Lord, stand on His word (His promises) and declare His will over your children.
An example scripture to pray over your child/children is Isaiah 54:13, All your children shall be taught by the LORD, and great shall be the peace of your children.
