Deuteronomy 4:37-38, “He brought you out of Egypt with his Presence, with his mighty power, driving out from before you nations greater and mightier than you…”
Isn’t God so good to give us a fresh new day every morning? Yesterday is gone. Perhaps you felt a total failure yesterday. Maybe everything went wrong. Forget it. Today is a new day. It is a new day for you to train and nurture your children for the destiny that God has planned for them. Don’t worry about all you have to accomplish. Instead, keep the eyes of your heart upon the Lord. He is your Sufficiency. He is your Strength. He is your Rock. He is the God who is Enough. He is the One who has given you this mighty task of training your children for His glory. Because He has given you this mandate, He will help you carry it out. You don’t have to do it on your own. He wants to work with you if you will let Him.
God has promised us in Psalm 55:22 that if we release the weight of our burden on to the Lord, that He will take it and He will sustain us. Isn’t that a wonderful promise? So why carry the burden yourself? Cast it upon the Lord.
Yes, I will admit that God has given you a big undertaking in motherhood. In fact, it is such an important assignment that it takes every effort of your being - physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. It is the greatest calling in the nation. You are training God’s task force. You are training the generation that could usher in the coming of the Lord. It’s a huge task, but you have a powerful God behind you. With God you can do things that are bigger than you.
God told the children of Israel to go into the Promised Land and drive out the nations that were “greater and mightier” than they were. Deuteronomy 9:1-3 says, “Hear, O Israel: You are to cross over the Jordan today, and go in to dispossess nations greater and mightier than yourself, cities great and fortified up to heaven, a people great and tall, the descendants of the Anakim (who were giants), whom you know, and of whom you heard it said, ‘Who can stand before the descendants of Anak?’ Therefore understand today that the Lord your God is he who goes over before you as a consuming fire. He will destroy them and bring them down before you; so you shall drive them out and destroy them quickly, as the Lord has said to you.” (Also read Deuteronomy 11:22-24)
God commanded them to do something that was bigger than they were! It was impossible to accomplish this task with their own strength. But He knew that they could do it, because He was with them.
Dear mother, do you feel that this job of motherhood is too much for you? Do you feel it is bigger than you can handle? Perhaps you are homeschooling and you feel totally overwhelmed. You don’t have to do it on your own. God is with you! Acknowledge that he is with you. Thank Him that He is with you.
Remember that with God you will do things that are
bigger and mightier than you!

“Oh Lord, so many times I feel everything is too much for me. But I thank you that you are with me. You are my Strength. You are my Help. You are my Deliverer! I thank you that when you are with me I can do things that are greater and mightier than my natural strength. Lord, I claim your strength today. Thank you in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
