Stop the Enemy from Attacking the Prosperity of Your Teenager
How to Get Your Teenager Back on the Path to Prosperity
When you are on the path to a prosperous life, you quickly discover there is resistance. Attacks of all sorts pop up along the way to prevent your success. This is common to everyone seeking prosperity. It also seems that the closer you get to your desired result the greater the challenges.
Often times, we find ourselves successful and prospering is several areas. Our diligence and determination begins to produce results. However, the enemy likes to play dirty and if he can’t get to us personally he will go for our children.
Teenagers already experience a great set of challenges of their own. New changes are constantly happening in their lives. They experience physical changes in their bodies, they get jobs, learn how to drive, begin new classes and activities at school, struggle with peer pressures of all sorts, have to make decisions for the future, and begin acquiring new responsibilities, just to name a few.
As parents we want the best for our children and to see them prosper. We invest in them to the best of our ability regardless of how demanding it can be at times. Anyone that has raised a teenager knows that many a time your mental, emotional, and physical reserves will be zapped. Yet, we continue to get up each day and give them the unconditional love they need.
Yet, what do you do after you’ve taught and instructed them in the way that will prosper them and then the enemy takes over? Through temptations, addictions, and rebellion they are on a path to destruction. This is a great turmoil in life to see a child that you love go through. It creates an overwhelming feeling of hopelessness and helplessness in a parent.
There is hope, however, regardless of your situation. Our children are a blessing from God. And God has power over the enemy and we need to stand on His Word to activate this power.
Meditate, confess, and stand on the following verses from God’s Word in faith daily:
“Thus saith the LORD; A voice was heard in Ramah, lamentation, and bitter weeping;
Rachel weeping for her children refused to be comforted for her children, because they were not.
Thus saith the LORD; Refrain thy voice from weeping, and thine eyes from tears;
for thy work shall be rewarded, saith the LORD; and they shall come again from the land of the enemy.
And there is hope in thine end, saith the LORD, that thy children shall come again to their own border.”
Stop your weeping. Keep serving the Lord. Refuse to let the enemy have your children. Don’t give up. Put your trust in God and His Word. If He says there is hope, then believe there is hope and that your children will come back from the land of the enemy. God’s plan is for you and your children to prosper.
May you and your children experience growing prosperity as you serve the Lord!
God bless you with hope & encouragement,
P.S. If you have a personal testimony of getting your child back out of the hands of the enemy or any advise in this area … please comment and share. I’d love to hear from you as I’m standing on the above scriptures for my daughter to come back!
Prosperity Power from God, Deuteronomy 8:18
“And you shall remember the Lord your God,
for it is He who gives you power to get wealth,
that He may establish His covenant which
He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.” Deut. 8:18
This video is less than a minute. It reminds us that God is the one that gives us the power to get wealth. And we are to use our wealth to help establish His covenant on the earth.
Enjoy & be blessed to be a blessing!
How Can a Life of Excellence Produce Prosperity?
Excellence Produces Prosperity and Who Doesn’t Want Prosperity?
Why just settle for a life of getting by and simply existing when you can live a life of excellence that brings growing prosperity into your life? You have a God given potential for excellence. Discover it and use it to live a prosperous life!
Excellence is defined as “superiority, great value or worth.” Obviously the areas of your life that are superior and of great value are going to produce prosperity. (While at the same time those areas of little value produce little return.)
So how do we achieve excellence? Understanding God’s Word enables us to achieve excellence in every area of life. Abraham Lincoln, one of America’s greatest presidents, said, “I believe the Bible is the best gift God has ever given to men. All the good from the Savior of the world is communicated through this book.”
You can have excellent health, excellent relationships, an excellent business, and an excellent spirit. Proverbs 17:27 says:
“He that hath knowledge spareth his words: and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit.”
Living with determination to do things with excellence in life will bring the reward of growing prosperity. How can it not?
- If you purpose to excel on your job and be the best employee you can, increase in the form of promotion and raises come your way.
- If you decide to be the best spouse you can be and live with that purpose, the result is a satisfying and full-filling marriage.
- If you are a parent living with the daily purpose of excellence, those planted seeds produce prosperity in your children’s lives.
- If you are a business owner that keeps the spirit of excellence as a foundational principle, you also keep your business in a position of growing prosperity.
Having a spirit of excellence can bring attacks from others. However, don’t be concerned with others that want to attack your standard. It is normal for those who cut corners or have lower standards to get offended and criticize excellence. You don’t need to look far to see that a lower standard does NOT produce prosperity. Yes, I know, it may appear at times that it does. But, take a closer look, and in the long run you’ll see that cutting corners only cuts away at a foundation. A life of excellence builds a strong foundation so that prosperity can grow in your life.
Give God your best and always do your best for His glory. When Mary anointed Jesus’ head and feet with expensive ointment, Judas was angered. Mary did not get offended at this attack; because she was determined to do what God was directing her to do with excellence. She poured out her best that day wholeheartedly. Jesus told the people to leave her alone and because she gave with excellence for His glory it would be remembered and told as a memorial of her (Matt 26:12-13).
A wholehearted approach to everything you do in life will produce prosperity because of your spirit of excellence. We all desire to see prosperity growing in our lives. Living a life of excellence produces prosperity and also honors God. So we should all have a goal of working to maintain the highest quality of reputation of excellence. Start today to develop a reputation of excellence in all that you do.
Enjoy the growing prosperity that living a life of excellence will bring your way!
