Question of the Day

Question of the Day

When Kenneth and Gloria started their journey of faith they had question too - lots of them! So, we've compiled the most frequent asked questions by people like you - people who earnestly desire to find God's answers to the practical, real-life challenges of everyday living. We have a new question every day, so check back often.

Q: I've prayed, but my children seem to be more rebellious than ever. What can I do?

A: First of all, you must start being moved by faith. You can’t get anything accomplished as long as you allow fear and worry to dominate your thinking. Stop the negative flow by starting to think and talk what the Word of God says about your children instead of dwelling on the problems you see in their lives.

Isaiah 54:13, for instance, says that “all your children shall be taught of the Lord, and great shall be their peace.” Receive that promise for your children. Start believing it and speaking it. Then find other promises (such as Psalm 112:1-2 and Deuteronomy 28:4) and use them to build a foundation of faith.

Gloria and I did that many years ago for our children. We saw the devil trying to get a foothold in their lives, so one weekend we got our concordance and four or five translations of the Bible. We began to search for scriptures and write out agreement prayers concerning our children.

We tore into the devil with The WORD of God, and started saying, “Thank God, our children are not going to hell. Thank God, they are taught of The LORD and great is their peace!” Instead of walking the floor and worrying about the problem, we walked the floor and praised God for the solution.

Things didn’t change instantly. We still had to go through some tough times, but The WORD began to turn things around. Today, my children are serving The LORD with all their hearts.

The second thing you need to do is bind the devil with The WORD of God and tell him he can’t have your children. Then follow the instructions Jesus gave in Matthew 9:38: “Pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers” into the field who can reach your children.

God knows your children better than they know themselves. He knows who they’ll listen to, and He knows how to bring those people into your children’s lives at just the right time.
