Some few weeks ago there was such a sad story making rounds on media of how Kenyan youth have lost direction. An event dubbed PROJECT X stole the attention of most parents and definitely Christians because they hardly knew such events did exist. Most parents had no rough idea whether their children were being involved in attending such events, as they had been going on for quite some time until the exposure. For those new to project X,they are parties organized by rouge people who are out there to mess up young people with great potential and definitely amazing destinies. I came to learn about the whole issue through a local Tv station and it bothered me for some time but what really hit me is, when i came to learn a young lady aged 20 from my neighborhood died in one of those X rated parties. Coming to terms about her death, i learnt that she had been invited by a friend to attend a party but she never knew what actually happens in such parties 1 Corinthians 15:33Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.” As for her she thought it was just a party, and sad to say she never made it out from that place alive. Despite the loss, what transpired still remains scanty to her family and those who knew her.
This whole report made me ponder on how the family is the foundation of our society and satan is out to destroy this foundation. We have often allowed satan to enter our homes like a thief, and have not even noticed his presence. He has not just come once and disappeared, but continues to sneak in undercover daily, using the influence of games, TV, videos, movies, music, computer games, the Internet, and above all school friends .Often parents do not realize how their children are being affected, as they are busy themselves with all the work they “have” to do. No darkness should enter our homes, but the thief keeps trying to creep in. How can you protect your home, if you do not know how the thief works? We need to know and understand how Satan has used significant events and developments in recent history, to underpin his attack on the family and on our children. The Devil will continually change his garments as he maintains his attacks: he wants to destroy your family and he will come as a friend or as a stranger. Ultimately it is up to you to know your God, for He will show you how to defend your children, to turn out to be men and women who fear God. Proverbs 22:6.“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
Through constant training, children will learn to discern between good and evil. Parents cannot be with their children all the time,to control what they watch or do. Children, whether alone or with friends, have to learn to stand up and ‘SAY NO’ to things they know their parents would not agree with.This attitude can only be developed in children by thoroughly training and disciplining them, according to the Bible from a tender age. Am not yet a parent but I can still borrow a leaf from my parents, who made sure they taught me about Jesus from a tender age. They planted a seed in me about Jesus and after being a silent rebel for almost five years, the seed of Jesus in me could not die and that’s how I ended up recommitting my life to Christ.It’s never too early to teach your children about Jesus, ten years from now you will be thanking God
For all parents whose children have turned out to be rebels, don’t give up on God, in turning their lives around. Keep on praying for them and speak words of faith, in regards to what you want to see in your children. Don’t curse them or compare them with other kids, doing that will only make them look for attention and approval from all the wrong places. Take note :-No matter how good our children intentions maybe if they get involved with bad company they will eventually, think and act that way. Do you know the enemy is busy distracting people with blames games on who failed on what. Some are blaming parents, others it’s the church, some it’s the government,or schools but what they fail to realize, the real enemy destroying our youth wants to remain hidden .Turn your focus to the real enemy and kick him out of your home through prayer. When we don’t pray, it’s like sitting on the sidelines watching our children in a war zone getting shot at from every angle. When we pray, we’re in the battle alongside our children, appropriating God’s power on their behalf. When we declare the Word of God in our prayers, we wield a powerful weapon against which no enemy can prevail,over our children. It’s my prayer, we all take the initiative to pray for our generation whether married with children or single trusting God to get married it’s our RESPONSIBILITY…………
Stop condemning your children’s action and calling them names
Focus and fight the real enemy (the devil) on your knees
I Love You And Am Praying For You🙏🏿
