There are some verses in the Bible that seem to get used more with children than adults… for example the one that comes to mind is Matthew 7:12;
"So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the law and the Prophets."
For some reason in my head this verse just reminds me of children maybe because you start teaching kids that minutes after being born… There are other verses that we use more in the context of children and even babies.
Psalm 139 is another section of Scripture we use a lot with the little ones, dedications, and births… there are some incredible verses in that chapter. I am beginning to think that this is something we need more or we need to come back to more as adults (yes, of course it applies to everyone) Adults have been around a lot longer… they have been through a lot more, they have been hurt, they have bought into the lies of the world and the devil… are you following me…?
I want to encourage you to take few minutes this week and read through this chapter and let the truths of the Words sink in to your brain and your heart. I do this and I know a lot of others do too, we talk negative about ourselves… to ourselves. What if… we reminded ourselves of some basic truths? One basic truth from Psalm 139 is verse 14 which says -
"I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well."
So from this we know we are not an accident, The God of this great universe took the time to make you…knit you together… He doesn’t make anything that is bad…wonderfully made! I think you get the idea… let these things sink in… and when you begin to have some negative unhealthy thoughts during the day remind yourself of some basic truths.
Maybe you have someone in your life who could benefit from hearing this and knowing this and believing this.
