Daily Devotional- Parenting

Day 24

5 The LORD replied,

“Look around at the nations; look and be amazed! For I am doing something in your own day something you wouldn’t believe even if someone told you about it.


Out of context, this verse sounds like an encouragement from God. The reality however, is God was telling Habakkuk He was about to unleash the evil Babylonians on Judah. The Jews were about to be overrun, killed or taken into captivity and the temple was soon to be destroyed as His punishment for years of Israel's disobedience.

God does many amazing works using means we cannot imagine. In parenting, God will work through the trials you and your children face in ways that will astonish you; that "you would not believe if you were told". This is a great comfort when your kids make really bad choices and the consequences seem harsh or unbearable. As the apostle Paul said, "Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how unfathomable His ways!" (Rom 11:33).
