“Then He brought us out from there, that He might bring us in, to give us the land of which He swore to our fathers.”
Can you imagine a young Israelite boy born in the wilderness, born during their forty years there? He hears people talk about Egypt, what it used to be. He hears about Canaan, what it ought to be. His folks have come out of Egypt, but God brought them out that He might bring them in…to Canaan. But now for forty years, they are going around in circles! This kid looks around—his mom and his dad are not living in Canaan; they’re not living in victory. What is he to think?
What about in your home? In your life in Christ, are you just circling around? Stuck in a rut? Off in the ditch? Or do your children see a vibrant, personal relationship with the God who parted the Red Sea and is answering your prayers today? Do your children catch you on your knees?
I’m convinced the reason the devil ensnares kids from good Christian families is, the parents have come out of Egypt, but they’ve never gone into Canaan. They’re stopped in the desert, going ‘round and ‘round in circles. Live in the victory Jesus died to give you. Make sure your children see you living in victory.
