“Behold, children are a gift of the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one’s youth. How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them; they will not be ashamed when they speak with their enemies in the gate.” (Psalm 127:3-5)
Think on these words in this day of hating children and being rid of them before they are born. The Lord has established order such that life can be prosperous and healthy. We have gone astray and our priorities have gone down the broad way of destruction. Come back into the presence of the Lord and see things as He has made them to be. Be blessed with His blessings.
Lord, I live in a world that thinks a curse is a blessing and a blessing is a curse. Correct my heart so that I may see things as they are. Guide me according to Your goodness to not be deceived by this age, but understand the simplicity of Your ways. Let me be blessed, O Lord, by having many children who walk in the way I walk, which is the way of Your salvation. Bless me with a faith that is shared.
Lord Jesus, You are the way, truth and life and no one can come to the Father except through You. Help me to be a follower who is led by Your salvation. Guide me according to Your goodness to know that in You is hope and a future. Let me be a blessing to others with the blessing You have given me. May I never be ashamed of Your purpose or presence. Amen.
