God calls us to train our children in the way they are to go. That means teaching them to do life the way God instructed us. Where do you find these instructions? In the Word of God !! He desires us to put Him first, to love others and lastly to think of self-needs.
So I came up with this little saying that I sometimes whisper to my children...it is definitely not proper English, but it drives the point this Mama wants to make into the hearts of my dear children.
" How's your G.O.E.S.?"
which sounds to them like...
"How's your 'goes'?"
Goes stands for....
(*think of Him first!)
He taught us to Love the Lord your God and serve Him only.
Put Him first throughout every moment of your day!
It takes determination, Joshua says so here.
(Put others in second place throughout the day.)
here is another few verses for you to ponder with them....
E= examine yourself...
(to make sure God is first and then others are being put second.)
You need to: expect, pray, believe, receive and then have what you have asked God for.
This is not a name it claim it doctrine, this is 'I am a child of God',
and I am bringing all that is on my heart before Him,
that He will meet all (ALL) of my needs.
He gives me favor and blesses me for being His child,
and for being one who honors Him
and His Word.
Living daily with strong faith
and greater and greater expectation
of how He will be working in and through our lives!
So How is your "GOES" going today?
