Teach a child to choose the right path, and when he is older, he will remain upon it. We are to teach our children the right path. Deuteronomy 11:18-19 indicates “So commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these words of mine. Tie them to your hands and wear them on your forehead as reminders. Teach them to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up.”

“We are human, but we don’t wage war as humans do. We use God’s mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments.

Life is about warfare. You have to fight through it all – fighting for things you have or things you don’t have. When you need a good marriage you’ll have to fight for it and to keep the marriage you have to fight. When you feel as if all hope is lost you still have to gather courage and fight because the grace of God is so sufficient to pull you through. For this reason, you cannot afford to give up. Fight for your kids, fight for your husband, fight for your marriage, fight for everything that doesn’t seem right in your life. Don’t lose your faith because victory belongs to Jesus.
