Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you.
Today's Devotional for Children
Sometimes when we are raised in a family were our Fathers and Mothers are divorced we are taught to be loyal to one parent over the other. We are taught that lying is okay in order to get material things that we want, not caring that maybe the parent we are lying to loves us so much that they put you as first and foremost even before their own essential needs are met.
This is never okay or right, no matter what the parent we are most involved with says. We as Gods children are to never participate in lying or cheating anyone in order to get everything we want, let alone to do that to one of our parents whom God has commanded us to honor. If we do not follow Gods commandment on this, He will not bless us in other areas of our lives. God also tells us in the Holy Bible that all liars will burn in the bowl of fire if we do not repent and change our ways.
Heavenly Father help me to be a good, honest and loving child of God no matter what the circumstances. Please forgive me for any wrongdoing I may have participated in towards my Father or Mother in order to be loyal. In Jesus precious name I pray, Amen.
Verse But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.
Devotional God knows every thought we think before we think it, He knows every word we speak before we speak it. God is always with us, there is nothing we can hide from God because He created us and He knows every single thing about us.
Verse When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth.I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into Godís love and keep you strong.
Devotional This is our prayer at Children's Bible Verse for all of you. We see ALL of you as our children and want so much good for you that comes only from our trust and faith in Jesus Christ. May He guide and give you the desires of your heart, protection, strength, hope and love to stand through any storm that the world may place in your path! In Jesus precious name, Amen.
Verse Offer prayers and petitions in the Spirit all the time. Stay alert by hanging in there and praying for all believers.
Devotional Some ways of God are hard to understand. It does not make sense to normal people that we should pray for others when we are under attack or feeling depressed. But Jesus says praying for other believers is exactly what we should do when that happens. Not only will it bring great power to those who you are praying for but it will also "strengthen you with great power".
Verse "In your anger do not sin": Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold.
Devotional Jesus says we should be gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and have great kindness. Anger is in the heart of the foolish... Father in heaven, please help me to forgive people that have done wrong towards me. Instead give me a loving heart. In the name of Jesus, Amen.
Verse Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.
Devotional Is there a person in your life that just drives you crazy sometimes? Well, God says that we should be patient and gentle with them. That does not mean to let them walk on you, but we need to treat each other with love.
Verse Therefore be imitators of God as dear children.
Devotional Since we were born into God's family as His legitimate children when we repented and placed our faith in Jesus Christ as our Savior, we therefore should be an imitation of God (John 1:12-13).
As Christians we imitate God by loving others (1 John 3:16).
Verse In your anger do not sin: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, for anger gives a foothold to the devil.
Devotional Anger itself is not necessarily sinful. However, it can breed sinful thoughts and actions. Bitterness and resentment are like poison that eat away at us unless we forgive like Christ forgave us. His Holy Spirit will give us peace and rest if you simply ask as the bible says. Do not go to bed angry, give it to God.
Verse Be kind and loving to each other. Forgive each other the same as God forgave you in Christ.
Devotional Jesus tells us more than once in the bible to forgive others. Forgiving is loving. Is there someone that has been mean to you, hurt you, or done something against you that you need to forgive?
Verse For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.
Devotional LORD, help me to not walk in darkness, help me to walk in Your light. Thank You for the food and clothes You have provided for me, and for everything else You have provided for my family and me as well. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
