Today we begin a conversation about how to stand firm and fight for our children and the next generation.  Steve reminds us our children are born into a world at war.  Satan hates children and it is important for us to accept the reality that no matter where we live there is a spiritual battle going on.

One act of spiritual warfare is dedicating our children to the Lord.  It is an act of committing ourselves as parents to the spiritual well being of our children.  It is a declaration and puts a stake in the ground.

We (Bob and Kristy) were on a trip to Mexico in 1991 and were planning to move there.  Kristy was seven months pregnant with our oldest son Seth and became very sick.  (Watch the video for the story of an intense battle where we saw God move on our behalf.)

There are some countries in the world that are quote “neutral.”  But in this war we don’t have that option.  We must declare and live out the Word, “As for me and my house we are going to serve the Lord.”

We are called to stand together with other brothers and sisters in the battle.  It takes a village to raise a child and it takes an army to defend a people.

We get to choose who we fight for.  We get to choose Jesus.  We don’t get to choose who we fight against.  We don’t get to choose all our battles.

This week ask the Holy Spirit, “Where have I chosen to try to ignore the battle?  Where do I need to engage and fight the battle in the heavenlies and in the place of prayer?”  Then step up and trust God.

About 15 years ago our heavenly Father began encouraging me in my role as His son and out of that in my role as a father, both biologically and spiritually. Through multiple encounters on my journey God has revealed His heart as my Father and affirmed my sonship in Him. Out of this has come His call to fully embrace who He has created me to be as a father and to share that with others.
