The Light Daily Devotional – The Arrows of God
Focus: The Arrows of God
WORD FOR TODAY
Children are God’s inheritance given to men to be an effective force in the battle of life. The legacy of both God and man can only be projected into the future through arrows (Children) that are trimmed, sharpened and kept in the quiver for Godly use!
“As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.” (Psalm 127:4 KJV)
The world is beautiful today because there are children who are making the prophecy of greatness in the days to come. We don’t worry much about wonderful men who are leaving various stages of life because there are children who are getting set to take over from them.
The word of God likened Children to arrows; a weapon of war. There is a limit to what a mighty man can do if he has no weapon to fight on the battlefront. The height a mighty man cannot reach his arrow can and the battle he cannot win by his hands his arrow can help him. Nevertheless, he has the responsibility to prepare and shoot the arrow at the appropriate time and on the right target.
When the Lord promised to make Abraham a mighty nation; He gave him a child. The child given to you is God’s inheritance meant to help you win various battles of life and make you great. Therefore, they must be trained spiritually, academically, morally, socially and maritally. Your arrow will not depart from the direction you send it (Prov.22.6).
+ How are you handling God’s heritage at your disposal? What type of arrow are you in God’s hand?
Lord! Make our Children battle axes trimmed, sharpened and kept in thy quiver for great exploit in Jesus name. Amen!
Emphasis: When the Lord looks upon a nation to make it great a child is given!
Have an Awesome Thursday!
