    book excerpt


    The fear of the LORD is pure, enduring forever. The ordinances of the LORD are sure and altogether righteous. They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the comb. By them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward. --Psalm 19:9-11, NIV

    When I started writing this book and was choosing Scriptures to pray as blessings over children, it seemed I should copy the entire Bible except perhaps a few verses in the Old Testament and some of the more complex ones in Revelation! As my pastor said that God told him once, “It’s all good!”

    There is nothing more precious than the Word. It is eternal, magnificent, matchless, and alive. It is sublime. And if you are saved by faith in the atoning death of Christ Jesus when He spilled His priceless blood on the cross for you to enjoy divine health and freedom from the penalty of your sins, then you are one with Jesus, Who is the eternal Word (John 1:1).

    When you speak God’s Word, the enemy hears Jesus talking. Hallelujah!

    It is the same with your children. As they accept and grow in Christ and learn to wield the incredible authority we believers have when speaking God’s Word, they will also be very likely to continue the plan of God—to destroy the works of the enemy and establish the Kingdom. So the more we parental figures talk like Jesus--speak the Word--to and over our kids, the more powerfully we shape their destinies in victory for Him!

    The Message Bible, Hebrews 11:18 states, “By faith, Isaac reached into the future as he blessed Jacob and Esau.” As Pastor Tracy1 says, “Blessing your children is ‘results- oriented praying.’"

    Just as we don’t see a seed growing at first, till the plant bursts through the dirt, much is being done “in secret.” So don’t neglect to continue planting those spiritual seeds, even if it seems nothing is happening. After all, a farmer does not expect to see his crop mature overnight.

    Proverbs 1:5 (AMP) states that, “The wise also will hear and increase in learning, and the person of understanding will acquire skill and attain to sound counsel (so that he may be able to steer his course rightly).” It is never too early nor too late to start a
    deeper study of the Scriptures, for the Word will accomplish that for which it is sent (Isa. 55:11).

    Even when my daughter was in my womb, I was praying over her and singing praise songs to her. It is well known that babies can hear before they are born, so if you are expecting, do not think your efforts will be wasted if you speak the Word to your baby-to- be! Even if the baby could not hear, you’ll be strengthening your spirit and sharpening your sword to use on behalf of your child.

    Words have power, and as soon as they are released from our mouths, they affect our lives and others’--for evil or for good.

    I also dedicated my daughter to the LORD on Mother’s Day when she was three months old. God led me to carefully choose Scriptures for my pastor at that time to proclaim over her for that occasion, and I have continued to speak many of them over her through the years.

    Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God (Rom.10:17). As you bless your children, remember that not only will the eternal Word go forth to start shaping your child’s life to the glory of God, it will soothe and strengthen your faith, drawing you closer to Him, and otherwise work in your life to create the wise, victorious, loving, peaceful, joyful mother (or father) that you long to be.

    In Matthew 17:20 and Luke 17:6, Jesus compares our faith in His Word to a seed. One pastor said that the reason He chose the mustard seed is that it absolutely remains pure. It cannot be cross-pollinated.

    The Word is the mightiest seed on earth, and like all seeds that produce nourishing, life- giving fruit, it must be planted on purpose, then watered and tended and kept.
    So I have a question for you: What kinds of seeds are you planting in the tender gardens that are your children?

    Be assured that you are continuously planting seeds in your children, every day, for good or bad. These seeds are planted not only by what you do and say to and for them, but by who and what you allow in your children’s lives.
