I too have small children. I understand how fearful thoughts can try to take a hold of a parents mind.
My friend, fear is evidence of you trying to play God in your life and the lives of your precious babies.
You have, no, you must come to the conclusion that you cannot protect you or your babies. You cannot provide for them only God can. That is what surrender is.
Your not providing food, clothing, Love or shelter for them now, God is the One providing for them through you and when the time comes when the Mark is in full force then He will provide for them and you during that time too. You may want Him to show you how He will provide so you can have peace and rest from this worry but He is calling you to have His peace and rest even not seeing how He will. My friend, your heavenly Father is not required to show you how He will do this, but you are required to trust Him because of His Love for you and your babies which are His babies. Faith, Trust, Rest, Love is needed more now than ever. You must and are required to teach your babies this as well.
Fear has absolutely no place in the life of a believer. NONE. If God be for you, who can be against you.
Children and the Last Days
What you need to do to prepare is feed your self spiritually right now, you and your babies while we have the Bibles, CD's, Christian Networks, Worship music, etc because once that is taken away then we will have to rely on what the Lord has retained for us on our behalf. This is what will keep us so we won't lose our mind. This is what will keep us so we can minister to others so they can be saved. This is what will be needed to overcome Satan by the Blood of the Lamb and the Word your testimony not loving your life to the death (Revelation 12:11)
The worry over food is futile because God says He provides His food for His servants and their children - "I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread." Psalm 37:25 My friend, that's you and your babies. Please also see Matthew 6:25-34. Times like this and the times we are headed for desperately require and expect you to not only know, see and read these verse but to believe them.
Jesus needs you to believe Him beloved, for you and your children's sake.
Let not your heart be troubled.
Please pray with me:
"Jesus, I need You. I want the chains of the past to break and and to be closer to You. I want to be as close to You as I can possibly be. I need Your strength. I want to help people come to You Jesus Christ. Teach me Lord. I need MORE! I don't want to fall back into old wicked ways and habits.
I surrender my entire life to You Jesus. I choose You. I am giving You my past, my present and my future. I am giving You my children (list them all by name) to keep, protect, Love, nurture, teach and use for Your glory in this final hour. I am giving You everything, in exchange for the New Life You have just for me.
I am accepting Your invitation to be born again and to have my name written in the Lambs Book of Life.
Lord, I thank You for Your Promise of the Baptism of the Holy Ghost in Luke 3:16.
I see the hour we are living in and the urgency You are relating to Your servants to preach the message of the Kingdom because now is the time. I know that I cannot go into territory that must be infiltrated to save souls nor can I bring deliverance to the captives or recovery of sight to the Blind, I can't even walk as the soldier of God you have called me to be without Your Anointing.
I have come to realize this Anointing is not given lightly or as a means of show boating but is given as a way of service unto You, Your Word and Your kingdom to come.
Temptation, the lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes and pride of life cannot stand in Your Anointing. Lord I am giving myself over to You to consecrate, set aside, to make holy. I am giving myself to You as a living sacrifice holy and acceptable to You. I am saying to Your refining process. I am saying yes to the Anointed Life You have for me. I am saying yes to Your Call, Your Way, Your will.
I am asking You now, God of heaven and earth, My Lord, King and Savior, to Baptize me in the Holy Ghost and Fire, now."
