When God Uses Your Kids to Remind You of Himself.

While having family devotions the other night one of our children said…

More than we’d like to admit, we often forget when a child becomes a daughter or son of God they are indwelt by the Holy Spirit instantly.

The Holy Spirit doesn’t gradually increase as they grow older in age or in spiritual understanding; they are indwelt with all of the Holy Spirit exactly like the moment we called upon the name of the Lord to be saved.

We would all agree, a new born babe isn’t eating meat, but rather drinking milk. The level of spiritual knowledge increases as our children (and ourselves) walk with Christ. He is the developer. He is the one who matures a soul. It is when we become more intimate with His that our application of God’s Word is obeyed; loved. As our children are nurtured their walk with Christ flourishes. The ‘amount‘ of Holy Spirit for a child or adult is actually the same upon the day of salvation.

I love when God uses our children to remind us of Himself. The Lord uses the smallest people in our lives to show us Himself through these timeless, effective, and wisdom filled words or actions to convict us, encourage us, remind us that the power of the Holy Spirit is among us; including our children.

God doesn’t save us to leave us.

What a powerful statement. Why is this such a bullseye to the soul? Well, let’s see:

  • God is purposeful. You are His creation, His workmanship, His poem, His masterpiece. You are created in the image of God. You are an heir to the throne of the King of Kings; lest we forgot no one or nothing can change that or take that away (Ephesians 2:10; John 10:28-30). In His purposeful plan He fills it with specific tailored details, a course of action set for you alone by God Himself with a love that is indescribable, unfathomable and gracious.
  • God cannot voilate Himself. This is beyond comfort. We can trust God because His very character is trustworthy.
    • What God says He does. Period.
    • When God says it will be or not be. We are guaranteed it will come to pass.
    • How God says it will be or not be…we know this too shall come to pass.
    • Deuteronomy 31:6; Hebrews 13:5 tell us “He will never leave us nor forsake us…be strong, be courageous, be content and do not fear.” Those are guaranteed words! Those are comforting words. Those are life giving words. Those are life sustaining words to continue in assurance in His will. Those are words spoken from a Father to His child…YOU!

God doesn’t save us to leave us.

You are already victorious. You have already won the battle because of Christ. The million dollar question is: Are we going to live accordingly?

I just want to tell you that God really loves you…

The little boy put on his clothes for the cold and then told his father, “Ok Dad I’m ready.”

His Dad, the pastor, said, “Ready for what?”

“Dad, it’s time to go outside and distribute our flyers.”

Dad replied, “Son, it’s very cold outside and it’s drizzling.”

The child looked surprised at his father and said, “But Dad, people need to know about God even on rainy days.”

Dad replied, “Son, I’m not going outside in this weather.”

With despair the child said, “Dad, can I go alone? Please!”

His father waited for a moment and then said, “Son, you can go. Here’s the flyers, be careful.”

“Thank you, Dad!”

And with this, the son went out into the rain. The 11-year-old walked all the streets of the village, handing out the flyers to the people he saw.

After 2 hours walking in the rain and in the cold and with his last flyer in his hand, he stopped in a corner to see if he saw someone to give the flyer too, but the streets were totally deserted. Then he turned to the first house he saw, walked to the front door, touched the bell several times and waited, but no one came out.

Finally, the boy turned to leave, but something stopped him. The child turned back to the door and began to touch the bell and pound the door strongly with his knuckles. He kept waiting.

Finally, the door was opened gently.

A lady came out with a very sad look and gently asked, “What can I do for you, son?

With radiant eyes and a bright smile the child said, “Lady, I’m sorry if I upset you, but I just want to tell you that God really loves you and that I came to give you my last flyer, which talks about God and His great love.

The boy then gave her the flyer.

She just said, “Thank you, son, God bless you!”

Well, next Sunday morning, the Pastor was in the pulpit and when the service began he asked, “Someone has a testimony or something they want to share?”

Gently, in the back row of the church, an older lady stood up. When she started talking, a radiant and glorious look sprouted from her eyes, “Nobody in this church knows me. I have never been here, even last Sunday I was not Christian. My husband died a while ago leaving me totally alone in this world. Last Sunday was a particularly cold and rainy day, and it was also in my heart; on that day I came to the end of the road, since I had no hope and didn’t want to live anymore. Then I took a chair and a rope and went up to the attic of my house. I tied one end of the rope to the rafters of the roof; then I climbed onto the chair and put the other end of the rope around my neck. I then stood on the chair, so alone and heartbroken, I was about to throw myself off the chair, when suddenly I heard the loud sound of the door being knocked.”

So I thought, “I’ll wait for a minute and whoever it is will go.” I waited and waited, but the door knocking was getting louder and louder every time. It got so loud that I couldn’t ignore it anymore.

So I wondered, “Who could it be? No one ever comes close to my door or come to visit me!”

I released the rope from my neck and went to the door, while the bell was still ringing and the door was still being knocked on.

When I opened the door, I couldn’t believe what my eyes saw, in front of my door was the most radiant and angelic child I’ve ever seen.

He’s smile, ohhh, I can never describe it! The words that came out of his mouth made my heart, dead so long ago, come back to life, when he said with the VOICE OF CHERUB, “Lady, I just want to tell you that God really loves you.

When the little angel disappeared between the cold and the rain, I closed my door and read every word of the flyer. Then I went to the attic to remove the chair and rope.

I didn’t need them anymore, as you see. Now, I am a happy daughter of the King.

As the direction of the boy, when he left, was to this church, I came personally to say thank you to that little angel of God who came just in time and, in fact, to rescue my life from an eternity in hell; replaced it with an eternity in God’s presence.

Everyone cried in the church.

The Pastor came down from the pulpit to the first bench of the front, where the little angel was sitting; he took his son in his arms and cried uncontrollably.

Remember, God’s message makes a big difference in someone’s life, never be afraid to spread it.


I read this online. The author is unknown to my knowledge, but this is so worth the sharing.

Don’t let this message die of cold; after reading it, pass it on to others. You never know who will read it and change their direction.

{You} Enslaved or Free?

Walking in Christ is not for sissies, but as a child of God you are indwelt and empowered by the Holy Spirit.

  • There is no super power in bitterness. Bitterness enslaves you; forgiveness frees you.

“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor (fellow man) and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I say to you, love [that is, unselfishly seek the best or higher good for] your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 so that you may [show yourselves to] be the children of your Father who is in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on those who are evil and on those who are good, and makes the rain fall on the righteous[those who are morally upright] and the unrighteous [the unrepentant, those who oppose Him]. 46 For if you love [only] those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do that? 47 And if you greet only your brothers [wishing them God’s blessing and peace], what more [than others] are you doing? Do not even the Gentiles [who do not know the Lord] do that? 48 You, therefore, will be perfect [growing into spiritual maturity both in mind and character, actively integrating godly values into your daily life], as your heavenly Father is perfect” (Matthew 5:43-48).

  • There is no super power in selfishness. We like to talk and focus on agape love most, but verse 44 in Matthew 5 centers on doing things for the benefit of another, that is, having an unselfish concern for another and a willingness to seek the best for another rather than self or emotion(s)

Want to be free? Use your super power of forgiveness in Christ?

Amen! Walk ye in Your Commission

Amen! The great commission!

Matthew 28:19-20. We are all commanded to share the good news of Jesus Christ. We are all commanded to make disciples of Jesus Christ. It is not just your Pastor’s job. It is every believers commission! The Lord has not left you unable. You are equipped, empowered, and endwelled by the Spirit Himself. Prepare yourself in Him, study with others in a discipleship/soul winning class, talk with your Pastor about some books you could read up on the subject. Now go! Obey your Lord Jesus and walk ye in Him! We make it a lot harder than it really is.
