We are preparing children to "speak in the gates." But, what are they going to speak? Are they going to give an "uncertain sound" or a certain sound (1 Corinthians 14:8)? Our job as mothers is to instill in their minds and hearts the certainty of God's truth. The Knox translation says to "ground thee in true doctrine." They must be grounded and rooted in God's Word so that all opposition to the truth will run off them like water off a duck's back!

Proverbs 22:20-21 says, "Have not I written to thee excellent things in counsels and knowledge, that I might make thee KNOW THE CERTAINTY OF THE WORDS OF TRUTH; that thou mightest answer the words of truth to them that send unto thee?" This is my current memory verse.

I love the word "certainty," don't you? We as mothers must know the certainty of God's truth. We must ingrain our children in the certainty of God's truth. It's not enough that they hear it. They must know it enough to speak it. Check out Isaiah 59:21. God does not want His Words to depart from our lips, the lips of our children, or even our children's children forever! What a huge responsibility we have. Motherhood is certainly not a part time job.

One of the ways our children daily receive God's Word is at our morning and evening Family Devotions. Don't let anything rob you of this family blessing.

Love from Nancy
