The heart of a father

“My son, don’t forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commands;” ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭3:1‬

The Strength of Confirmation

Leave a comment

Stay in this land for a while, and I will be with you and will bless you. For to you and your descendants I will give all these lands and will confirm the oath I swore to your father Abraham. Genesis 26:3

Now, Lord God, let your promise to my father David be confirmed, for you have made me king over a people who are as numerous as the dust of the earth. 2 Chronicles 1:9

Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it. Mark 16:20

Today, the cry of my heart is: “Father confirm the promises You have been speaking over this nation! Confirm Your words of healing and the promise of Your Presence! Let a generation have more than the beauty and richness of the words!”

As we had this wonderful time of Family Worship in Ceciliakyrkan yesterday afternoon, it was so great to see even the children being a part of it. While we started up the worship and tried to find the right frequency, the kids were outside the little white church, playing, having fun and it was so good! At that one moment where we sensed a cry coming out, a shout that formed itself to a beautiful sound with harmonies that were beyond our imaginations, the door was open and every now and then you saw a child hopping in and out again. It felt so natural, so without pressure! I sensed a preparation of the hearts, a safety with the invitation to be part…

As we invited the children in after the worship, we ignited a prayer of healing were we asked the children to “take the lead”! I was touched by the little hands that were stretched out the the adults who applied for prayer. Moved by the simple little words they tried and it was so good to see them being involved as we felt to confirm the promise of God, that He would use even the little ones!

This morning a testimony came in of healing and I am looking forward to see the faces of the children when we tell them that a miracle happened. By now I know that they would react with the certainty, “because we prayed, didn’t we?!”

There is strength in confirmation! When we confirm the children in their calling, their identity, their spiritual awareness, we will see things happening beyond our “adult” imagination!
