I’m in the season of life where my children have become adults. So this is a tip for you to tuck away and pull out someday soon…because the years do fly and your little ones get to the age where they can drive away from you. I decided that if it’s good enough for Job to do I can do it, too. Remember Job in the Bible, the guy that God calls blameless and upright and one who feared God? You know what he did for his kids after they were
partying feasting for several days? He would consecrate them and offer burnt offerings for them. Well we don’t do the burnt offerings anymore and I haven’t seen many consecrations but I can pray for them and ask God to have mercy on them. This is what I do. I even say to God sometimes, “Your servant Job called upon you on behalf of his children, I’m doing the same thing, Lord, please forgive them and have mercy on them and on all of us.” I sometimes go and put my hand on the door of their room while they are still sleeping and pray for them and ask God to bless them. This works for me because I need to give my children to God and leave them in God’s hands trusting Him to complete the work He started in them.
