Love you all, praying for you.
I just love God’s Word – It gives secrets. You are what you give priority to. Have you thought about a getaway before the summer ends? Maybe The Dells if you live in Wisconsin, Cowan Lake if you live in Southwest Ohio, or Lake Cumberland if you live in Kentucky? Maybe Labor Day Weekend – before the new school year starts? Praying that you will create trip traditions in your family, every time you travel somewhere. If you do, it will have lifelong impact on generations to come. #1 Ask God to protect the car – to put his angels of protection around it – to give you safety on this trip #2 Pray that you’ll be better friends by the time you get there. Better friends with Him, better friends with your spouse, and better friends with your family members. In thirty years of praying this prayer, God has never – not answered our request. And #3 Give Him the First Fruits of the car ride. Praying that this will become a family tradition for you. Are you willing to give the firstfruits of your trip – to God? Just do PRISM together. PRISM: Praise the Word. Mom or Dad whoever’s not driving… just read a verse in Psalms, and take turns, parents first, “praising God using the words of that verse.” When your kids see you do it, they’ll do it too. The couple verses of Psalms that you read, one at a time, they could be praise words, or they’ll remind you of Praise. Even “Why have you forsaken me?” reminds you of Jesus’ promise. “I will never leave you nor forsake you!” That’s worth praising Him for! As your kids see your example, they will join in. From the time they are little children, God has ordained praise. Teaching your children how to Praise the Word, how to give God the firstfruits of your trip, of your drive-time, is powerful. It will change the atmosphere. The Holy Spirit will come into that car! Before the kids get lost in their iphones and movies… from a new Disney trying to corrupt the heart of your child. Why not Give God the First fruits of every trip. Every car ride. PRISM by yourself is awesome, God speaks! But PRISM together with others!! It starts a fire! God will inhabit that car or mini-van. Because He inhabits the praise of His people. Then read one chapter of R: Read the Word of PRISM - Maybe a great story of the Old Testament where God split the red sea, or used a young boy to kill a giant. Maybe I Corinthians or I John that teaches us what love looks like, and how to love each other as a family. Then the Proverbs Chapter for today… whatever today’s date is. Do you want wisdom to take root in your children’s heart?. Give God the firstfruits of your trip, and you will see God increase their understanding, and open their minds to true wisdom, and God’s discernment. Your kids will become wise beyond their years. Praying that your Summer Trip – starts with the firstfruits given to God. It will change your trip, your car, your relationships, it will set an atmosphere where the Holy Spirit moves, and the peace of God can remain. Praying that Every Car Ride – you’ll give the first fruits to God.
