For those of you who know me, you know that speaking the Word of God is a HUGE deal with me. The reason it is so important, and I put so much emphasis on it, is because I know the impact it has had on my life. I have also seen the difference it makes in people’s lives when they get a hold on biblical confession.
There is a scripture that I confess over my children that has inspired me to put together some confessions for children to speak. The passage that inspired me is this:
God said that this is His covenant with me: His Spirit that is upon me and His words which He has put in my mouth, will not depart out of my mouth, nor out of the mouth of my seed, nor out of the mouth of my seed’s seed ~ Isaiah 59:21 ~
It occurred to me that for the Word to NOT depart out of my seed’s mouth, it must first be in there. So I have put these confessions together for children to speak and memorize.
This will help kids learn God’s Word. As they confess what God says about them, their confidence will grow. By realizing who they are in Christ, they will be able to stand against all the tricks of the enemy that plague our young generation today.
These simplified paraphrases of God’s Word can make a lasting positive impression that will help your children be victorious in this life. ENJOY!
