Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who out darkness for light,and light for darkness. Who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. Isaiah 5:20
My husband and I raised our sons to know right from wrong and good from evil. They were raised in the Christian faith to follow after the truth and pursue it. After you leave home you are on your own and confronted with many choices and often times moral and ethical dilemmas. Colleges often take our children and brainwash them into new philosophies of life. For whatever reason many children reject the faith of their childhood much to the dismay of parents who did the right thing initially.
Maybe some of you reading this have wandered from the way you were raised or your adult children have. Satan roams around trying to captivate people with lies and deceit and at times he is pretty convincing. Unless you counteract it with the truth in God's word you may be left to wander in the wilderness. Many a praying mom and dad has worn out the carpet on their knees praying for their children to be protected from the wiles of the devil and to fall back in love with Jesus again.
If you are needing peace over prayers you have sent up continually for a wayward loved one , just know God's love transforms. God's love sets free. God's love heals. God's love restores. God's love redeems. God's love forgives. Give Him your cares today.
PRAYER: You are mighty to save Lord. I thank you for rescuing me when I wandered in a dark place. I pray for those today who have left their first love and have no desire for things of the Lord. Touch hearts as only you can Lord and set the captives free. In Jesus' name. Amen.
