9/26 Teach your Children how to Hear from God

From time to time, I want to share an interesting session as a Mentor. 

 I have been working with a young Mum on hearing from God.  I have been encouraging her to pray for her daughter at night.  Lately, she has been asking 4 year old ‘Jeanie‘ what the Lord is saying to her.

One night, Jeanie said she had been having bad dreams.  “Could Jesus help me with these back dreams?” was her next question.  Her mother assured her that He loved her enough that He could and would.

The next night, Jeanie said she had another bad dream.  “…and what did Jesus say?” was Mum’s question.

“He said to think about the peanut butter and honey sandwiches you like instead of thinking about being afraid.” 

 To Mum’s surprise, the next part of her sentence brought a smile to her face: “You know what, Mummy?  It really worked!  I think about the good things I like instead of getting afraid now.”

How easy it is for us as adults to follow the enemy’s thoughts of fear, worry and dread when He is patiently waiting for us to see there is another way.

If only we adults could learn to talk with the Lord Jesus and hear His wisdom more!  So, yes teach your children how to hear from the Lord early and save yourself some grey hairs.
