God's promises
In HIS Presence


Isaiah 54:13-15

Meditation verse:

“All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children”. (Isaiah 54:13).


As a parent, do you often fret and fuss over your grown-up children? Perhaps, there is an aspect of their life that you worry about. So, you project your insecurities and force choices on them, which may not be ideal. You say, “I don’t want them to suffer as I did or make the same mistakes that I made”. Who says they would? If you have done your best to raise a child, you must allow them to live their own lives and learn from their mistakes. In the “baggage claim movie”, I referred to in part one of this edition, the mother eventually confessed to her daughter that she did not want her to end up like her, who got married to five husbands.


If you are prone to projecting your fears and anxieties on your children, it’s time to let go and rest. And here’s God’s promises to you, “I will teach all your children and they will enjoy great peace” (Isaiah 54:13, NLT). “They will not labour in vain, nor will they bear children doomed to misfortune; for they will be a people blessed by the Lord, they and their descendants with them”. (Isaiah 65:23, NIV)


IN HIS PRESENCE is written by Oke Chinye.
Have you asked Jesus Christ to come into your heart?

He says in Mathew 11:28, “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” He longs to give you rest."

Would you like to do so now? Here’s a prayer you can say:
Dear Jesus, I believe that You died to save me from all my sins. Today, I invite you into my heart and I accept you as my Lord and Saviour. Please forgive all my sins and help me to live my life for You.

I would love to pray with you personally and send you a copy of my book; ‘Living the Life’ to encourage you as you begin your new life in Christ.
