Proverbs 14:26 "Those who fear the Lord are secure; He will be a refuge for their children."
In this proverb, King Solomon encourages people who fear the Lord with two tremendous promises from God: 1) they will be secure in the Lord, and 2) their children will have safe refuge in Him.
As a father, my heart is to always provide a safe refuge for my children and to always be there for them, no matter what. How much more will my heavenly Father do for my children since He created them in the womb, knew them before they were born, and gave His life for them at the Cross? Because I fear the Lord and place my trust in Him, I am safe and secure in His blessing. And so too are my children. Isaiah 65:23 (NLT) confirms this promise stating, "They [people who fear the Lord] will not work in vain, and their children will not be doomed to misfortune. For they are people blessed by the Lord, and their children, too, will be blessed."
Heavenly Father, I praise You for You are Jehovah Nissi, the Lord our Banner! Thank You Lord for covering me, my wife, and each of my children with the blessing of Your Banner over us! I am forever grateful for the safety and security that we have in You. I love You Jesus! Amen!
