GOD IS YOUR SUSTAINER


Our Heavenly Father wills for parents to be in a healthy marriage, working together to provide, protect, and support their children in every way. Whether that is the case or not, we must depend on God to sustain us as we raise our children. 


The ability to trust and depend on God comes from having a personal relationship with Him through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. It requires us to possess a level of faith which empowers us to obey God. Obedience to God's Word is a key component to pleasing Him. Jesus said, “If you love me, keep my commandments (John 14:15).” 


As parents it is essential to develop a consistent prayer life, study the Word of God, and to live according to His commandments. Our dependence upon God to sustain us, and our praise of Him for His provision will teach our children to trust and believe God for all things. 


QUESTIONS: Do you trust God to supply all of your needs? Are you living an authentic God-fearing life that your children can follow?
