  • dealing with rebellious teenagers,
  • 00:00:11.200 --> 00:00:13.260
  • worrying about family members that are going
  • 00:00:13.270 --> 00:00:15.250
  • through a difficult time?
  • 00:00:15.260 --> 00:00:17.170
  • I want you to know that God's blessing is not just for you,
  • 00:00:17.180 --> 00:00:20.240
  • but for your entire family.
  • 00:00:20.250 --> 00:00:22.270
  • You can be at rest knowing God loves and cares
  • 00:00:22.280 --> 00:00:25.230
  • about the ones you love.
  • 00:00:25.240 --> 00:00:27.110
  • It's time to let go of the fear-filled worries and thoughts
  • 00:00:27.120 --> 00:00:30.050
  • concerning your loved ones and give them over to God.
  • 00:00:30.060 --> 00:00:33.250
  • You can trust that he has a promise
  • 00:00:33.260 --> 00:00:35.160
  • and a good plan for them.
  • 00:00:35.170 --> 00:00:38.060
  • Hi, I'm Joseph Prince.
  • 00:00:38.070 --> 00:00:40.120
  • Are you ready to breathe a little easier,
  • 00:00:40.130 --> 00:00:42.190
  • stand a little straighter, and live a little freer?
  • 00:00:42.200 --> 00:00:45.100
  • Here's the good news.
  • 00:00:45.110 --> 00:00:47.000
  • With God on your side, you can let your troubles go.
  • 00:00:47.010 --> 00:00:50.270
  • The rest of the world seeks to declutter life
  • 00:00:50.280 --> 00:00:53.080
  • from the outside in, but in my new book,
  • 00:00:53.090 --> 00:00:56.040
  • "Live the Let-Go Life," we explore practical ways
  • 00:00:56.050 --> 00:00:59.140
  • you can clear out the clutter of life from the inside out
  • 00:00:59.150 --> 00:01:03.160
  • and see positive change in your outward circumstances.
  • 00:01:03.170 --> 00:01:07.230
  • I hope you will join me today.
  • 00:01:07.240 --> 00:01:09.130
  • You can live worry-free, stress-free, and healthier.
  • 00:01:09.140 --> 00:01:13.180
  • You can live the let-go life.
  • 00:01:13.190 --> 00:01:16.040
  • (Brandon) Hi, I'm Brandon.
  • 00:01:18.150 --> 00:01:19.270
  • Sir, just listen to me.
  • 00:01:19.280 --> 00:01:21.110
  • I don't think I can do this.
  • 00:01:21.120 --> 00:01:22.230
  • (male announcer) Modern life comes at a frantic pace.
  • 00:01:22.240 --> 00:01:25.030
  • (female) I'm late again.
  • 00:01:25.040 --> 00:01:26.240
  • (announcer) Every day is a race against unending to-do lists,
  • 00:01:26.250 --> 00:01:29.290
  • obligations, and interruptions.
  • 00:01:30.000 --> 00:01:32.150
  • [baby crying]
  • 00:01:32.200 --> 00:01:34.000
  • Stress takes a toll.
  • 00:01:34.180 --> 00:01:36.110
  • The harder we try to hold on, the harder it is to keep up.
  • 00:01:36.120 --> 00:01:41.120
  • But what if we could let it all go,
  • 00:01:46.070 --> 00:01:49.110
  • free ourselves from fear and anxiety,
  • 00:01:49.120 --> 00:01:53.180
  • because we weren't designed to live a life of stress.
  • 00:01:53.190 --> 00:01:57.290
  • Well, now you can walk lighter, breathe easier,
  • 00:01:58.000 --> 00:02:03.020
  • and live happier as you discover how to live the let-go life.
  • 00:02:03.030 --> 00:02:09.030
  • In this episode of learning how we can live the let-go life,
  • 00:02:12.100 --> 00:02:15.170
  • I wanna focus on an area that has many of us tied up in knots,
  • 00:02:15.180 --> 00:02:19.210
  • and that's the area of our parenting.
  • 00:02:19.220 --> 00:02:23.060
  • Down through the years, I have counseled
  • 00:02:23.070 --> 00:02:25.030
  • and received emails from many parents
  • 00:02:25.040 --> 00:02:27.170
  • who want to live the stress-free, let-go life,
  • 00:02:27.180 --> 00:02:30.200
  • but what worries them like nothing else is their kids.
  • 00:02:30.210 --> 00:02:35.010
  • Whether they are newborns, toddlers, preschoolers,
  • 00:02:35.020 --> 00:02:38.290
  • teenagers, or adult children, our children have a way
  • 00:02:39.000 --> 00:02:42.130
  • of getting ahold of our hearts, don't they?
  • 00:02:42.140 --> 00:02:44.190
  • Indeed, a recent poll of 2.000 parents found
  • 00:02:44.200 --> 00:02:48.080
  • that 90% felt stress and pressure over raising children.
  • 00:02:48.090 --> 00:02:54.140
  • Another poll found that 78% thought that parenting
  • 00:02:54.150 --> 00:02:58.090
  • is much harder than ever.
  • 00:02:58.100 --> 00:03:00.120
  • Parents are worried about all areas,
  • 00:03:00.130 --> 00:03:03.060
  • from their children's health, to their social status,
  • 00:03:03.070 --> 00:03:06.290
  • if they are receiving enough guidance in life,
  • 00:03:07.000 --> 00:03:09.140
  • to their education and safety.
  • 00:03:09.150 --> 00:03:12.070
  • I used to think I didn't have a problem with worry
  • 00:03:12.080 --> 00:03:15.110
  • until Jessica, my beautiful daughter,
  • 00:03:15.120 --> 00:03:17.180
  • came along.
  • 00:03:17.190 --> 00:03:18.280
  • And then I didn't think I would ever stop worrying
  • 00:03:18.290 --> 00:03:21.100
  • where it concerned her.
  • 00:03:21.110 --> 00:03:23.010
  • Then my little boy, Justin, came along
  • 00:03:23.020 --> 00:03:25.240
  • and I had two precious ones
  • 00:03:25.250 --> 00:03:27.040
  • that could send me into worry like nothing else could.
  • 00:03:27.050 --> 00:03:29.150
  • So, I know what it's like to have kids
  • 00:03:30.100 --> 00:03:32.170
  • and be concerned about them.
  • 00:03:32.180 --> 00:03:34.060
  • I know firsthand how real the stress of parenting can be.
  • 00:03:34.070 --> 00:03:39.070
  • If you are stressed out from dealing with
  • 00:03:39.080 --> 00:03:41.140
  • your toddler's tantrums, handling rebellious teenagers,
  • 00:03:41.150 --> 00:03:44.270
  • or managing young adults who have walked away from church
  • 00:03:44.280 --> 00:03:48.110
  • and are dealing with complex relationships and addictions,
  • 00:03:48.120 --> 00:03:52.000
  • I want you to know that you are not alone.
  • 00:03:52.010 --> 00:03:55.020
  • And if you are a single parent or a parent with a child
  • 00:03:55.030 --> 00:03:57.250
  • who's been diagnosed with behavioral disorders,
  • 00:03:57.260 --> 00:04:00.280
  • developmental disabilities, or a serious health condition,
  • 00:04:00.290 --> 00:04:04.260
  • I know how difficult that can be.
  • 00:04:04.270 --> 00:04:07.150
  • Does God understand what we go through when it comes
  • 00:04:07.160 --> 00:04:09.270
  • to raising kids in this day and age?
  • 00:04:09.280 --> 00:04:12.190
  • How can we live the let-go life in this area?
  • 00:04:12.200 --> 00:04:16.110
  • First of all, I want you to know,
  • 00:04:16.120 --> 00:04:17.290
  • when it comes to your family life,
  • 00:04:18.000 --> 00:04:19.230
  • God desires that we don't just survive through it,
  • 00:04:19.240 --> 00:04:22.230
  • but we experience days of heaven on the earth.
  • 00:04:22.240 --> 00:04:26.040
  • God wants us to enjoy his blessings over our households,
  • 00:04:26.050 --> 00:04:30.020
  • our marriages, as well as our children.
  • 00:04:30.030 --> 00:04:33.180

  • 00:05:07.150 --> 00:05:10.100
  • (Joseph Prince) Do you wanna see your children successful,
  • 00:05:10.130 --> 00:05:12.140
  • stress-free, healthy, and flourishing
  • 00:05:12.150 --> 00:05:15.030
  • in the house of God?
  • 00:05:15.040 --> 00:05:16.210
  • Let's look at what Deuteronomy 11 says.
  • 00:05:16.220 --> 00:05:19.290
  • "Therefore you shall lay up these words of mine
  • 00:05:20.000 --> 00:05:22.060
  • "in your heart and in your soul, and bind them
  • 00:05:22.070 --> 00:05:24.290
  • "as a sign on your hand, and they shall be
  • 00:05:25.000 --> 00:05:27.210
  • "as frontlets between your eyes.
  • 00:05:27.220 --> 00:05:30.030
  • "You shall teach them to your children,
  • 00:05:30.040 --> 00:05:32.040
  • "speaking of them when you sit in your house,
  • 00:05:32.050 --> 00:05:34.220
  • "when you walk by the way, when you lie down,
  • 00:05:34.230 --> 00:05:37.090
  • "and when you rise up.
  • 00:05:37.100 --> 00:05:38.280
  • "And you shall write them on the doorposts of your house
  • 00:05:38.290 --> 00:05:41.260
  • "and on your gates, that your days and the days
  • 00:05:41.270 --> 00:05:44.250
  • "of your children may be multiplied in the land
  • 00:05:44.260 --> 00:05:47.260
  • "of which the Lord swore to your fathers to give them,
  • 00:05:47.270 --> 00:05:51.070
  • like the days of the heavens above the earth."
  • 00:05:51.080 --> 00:05:54.180
  • Notice that to walk in this blessing,
  • 00:05:54.270 --> 00:05:57.070
  • God tells us to store up his Words in our hearts and souls,
  • 00:05:57.080 --> 00:06:01.130
  • to meditate and chew on them over and over again
  • 00:06:01.140 --> 00:06:05.170
  • until they sink into our hearts and souls.
  • 00:06:05.180 --> 00:06:08.080
  • Not only that, he wants us to teach our children
  • 00:06:08.090 --> 00:06:11.130
  • about his Words.
  • 00:06:11.140 --> 00:06:13.030
  • How can we do that?
  • 00:06:13.040 --> 00:06:14.250
  • By talking about his Words whether we are sitting down
  • 00:06:14.260 --> 00:06:17.120
  • at home, or walking along outside,
  • 00:06:17.130 --> 00:06:20.070
  • when we get up, when we lie down.
  • 00:06:20.080 --> 00:06:22.150
  • But did you notice that God tells us to lay up his Words
  • 00:06:22.160 --> 00:06:25.150
  • in our hearts and souls before telling us
  • 00:06:25.160 --> 00:06:29.010
  • to teach them to our children.
  • 00:06:29.020 --> 00:06:30.220
  • I believe this means that as we spend time personally
  • 00:06:30.230 --> 00:06:33.140
  • meditating on his Word and speaking to ourselves
  • 00:06:33.150 --> 00:06:37.050
  • in front of our children, they will learn to do the same.
  • 00:06:37.060 --> 00:06:40.130
  • As you meditate on God's Word, let them hear you say,
  • 00:06:40.140 --> 00:06:44.180
  • "The Lord is my Shepherd.
  • 00:06:44.190 --> 00:06:47.120
  • I have everything that I need."
  • 00:06:47.130 --> 00:06:49.240
  • Tell them, "What does a Shepherd do for his sheep?"
  • 00:06:49.250 --> 00:06:53.150
  • He lets them lie down in green pastures
  • 00:06:53.160 --> 00:06:55.260
  • where they have plenty to eat and leads them to still waters
  • 00:06:55.270 --> 00:06:59.050
  • where they can safely drink.
  • 00:06:59.060 --> 00:07:01.070
  • Do you know that God does that for us?
  • 00:07:01.080 --> 00:07:03.160
  • He provides for us and he takes care of us.
  • 00:07:03.170 --> 00:07:06.050
  • When we are tired, he gives us rest.
  • 00:07:06.060 --> 00:07:08.220
  • He goes before us to prepare the way for us.
  • 00:07:08.230 --> 00:07:11.170
  • Isn't he so good?
  • 00:07:11.180 --> 00:07:13.090
  • Your children will learn through your meditating
  • 00:07:13.100 --> 00:07:16.240
  • on the Word, and because you talk about him,
  • 00:07:16.250 --> 00:07:19.230
  • they will come to know of his goodness.
  • 00:07:19.240 --> 00:07:22.190
  • When good things happen, tell your children,
  • 00:07:22.200 --> 00:07:25.130
  • "Jesus did this for us."
  • 00:07:25.140 --> 00:07:27.190
  • When they are scared of something,
  • 00:07:27.200 --> 00:07:29.110
  • tell them, "Don't worry, Jesus will take care of you."
  • 00:07:29.120 --> 00:07:33.000
  • Tell them that, as the Lord rescued his people from Egypt
  • 00:07:33.010 --> 00:07:35.230
  • in the Bible, he will help them today,
  • 00:07:35.240 --> 00:07:38.110
  • even when it seems like there is no way.
  • 00:07:38.120 --> 00:07:40.280
  • And as you drive them to school or to practice,
  • 00:07:40.290 --> 00:07:43.190
  • share with them how the Bible says that Joseph
  • 00:07:43.200 --> 00:07:46.190
  • was a successful man because the Lord was with him.
  • 00:07:46.200 --> 00:07:50.180
  • Tell them that in the same way, their success is not dependent
  • 00:07:50.190 --> 00:07:54.140
  • on their grades, or their popularity,
  • 00:07:54.150 --> 00:07:57.000
  • or in social media, but on the Lord.
  • 00:07:57.010 --> 00:08:00.060
  • The important thing is, make Jesus a part
  • 00:08:00.070 --> 00:08:03.120
  • of your everyday life.
  • 00:08:03.130 --> 00:08:05.020
  • You don't have to be a Bible teacher or insist
  • 00:08:05.030 --> 00:08:07.090
  • that your children memorize Scripture.
  • 00:08:07.100 --> 00:08:09.200
  • Every child and every family is different and the Holy Spirit
  • 00:08:09.210 --> 00:08:13.140
  • will show you what works for yours.
  • 00:08:13.150 --> 00:08:16.060
  • However, if your children can memorize Scripture,
  • 00:08:16.070 --> 00:08:19.070
  • by all means encourage them to do so.
  • 00:08:19.080 --> 00:08:21.240
  • Justin was just 4 years old when he told me that he wanted
  • 00:08:21.250 --> 00:08:25.150
  • to recite Psalms 23 for everyone in church.
  • 00:08:25.160 --> 00:08:29.040
  • Please allow me to share this video with you as a proud daddy.
  • 00:08:29.050 --> 00:08:32.000
  • Is he here?
  • 00:08:33.180 --> 00:08:35.130
  • He wants to come to the stage, so I'm gonna let him come
  • 00:08:35.140 --> 00:08:37.170
  • to the stage.
  • 00:08:37.180 --> 00:08:39.140
  • Okay, is that a mic?
  • 00:08:39.150 --> 00:08:43.140
  • Oh, he says, "Where is the mic?"
  • 00:08:43.150 --> 00:08:45.030
  • Okay, hold the mic.
  • 00:08:45.040 --> 00:08:46.230
  • Say, "Happy New Year" to the people.
  • 00:08:46.240 --> 00:08:48.030
  • Happy New Year.
  • 00:08:48.040 --> 00:08:50.190
  • You wanna say Psalms 23? Okay, say, real quick.
  • 00:08:51.100 --> 00:08:53.180
  • "The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.
  • 00:08:53.190 --> 00:08:55.290
  • "He makes me to lie down in green pastures.
  • 00:08:56.000 --> 00:08:58.270
  • "He leads me beside the still waters.
  • 00:08:58.280 --> 00:09:02.050
  • "He restores my soul.
  • 00:09:02.060 --> 00:09:03.240
  • "He leads me in the paths of righteousness
  • 00:09:03.250 --> 00:09:06.060
  • "for his name's sake.
  • 00:09:06.070 --> 00:09:07.160
  • "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
  • 00:09:07.170 --> 00:09:11.010
  • "I will fear no evil, for you are with me.
  • 00:09:11.020 --> 00:09:13.150
  • "Your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
  • 00:09:13.160 --> 00:09:16.260
  • "You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
  • 00:09:16.270 --> 00:09:20.210
  • "You anoint my head with oil.
  • 00:09:20.220 --> 00:09:22.260
  • "My cup runs over.
  • 00:09:22.270 --> 00:09:24.140
  • "Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
  • 00:09:24.150 --> 00:09:27.220
  • "all the days of my life.
  • 00:09:27.230 --> 00:09:29.060
  • And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever."
  • 00:09:29.070 --> 00:09:32.010
  • Amen.
  • 00:09:32.020 --> 00:09:33.160
  • Well done.
  • 00:09:33.170 --> 00:09:34.280
  • Well done, Justin.
  • 00:09:34.290 --> 00:09:36.090
  • Isn't that so precious?
  • 00:09:36.260 --> 00:09:38.160
  • Please understand I didn't make him sit down every day
  • 00:09:38.170 --> 00:09:41.140
  • and recite the psalm to me before he could drink his milk
  • 00:09:41.150 --> 00:09:44.150
  • or anything like that.
  • 00:09:44.160 --> 00:09:46.110
  • When I was meditating on Psalms 23,
  • 00:09:46.120 --> 00:09:48.240
  • I would simply speak it over him every night before he slept.
  • 00:09:48.250 --> 00:09:52.200
  • He would also hear me meditating on it during the day,
  • 00:09:53.020 --> 00:09:55.280
  • and unconsciously he memorized it himself.
  • 00:09:55.290 --> 00:09:59.110
  • Now, I wanna give you a powerful picture
  • 00:09:59.120 --> 00:10:01.200
  • from Scripture which shows you
  • 00:10:01.210 --> 00:10:03.150
  • how valuable it is to bring up your children
  • 00:10:03.160 --> 00:10:05.150
  • in the presence of the Lord.
  • 00:10:05.160 --> 00:10:08.070
  • When you do that, you are surrounding
  • 00:10:08.080 --> 00:10:10.100
  • or sandwiching your children in the Lord's anointing.
  • 00:10:10.110 --> 00:10:14.120
  • Keep this phrase in mind as we look at how
  • 00:10:14.130 --> 00:10:16.160
  • the Shunammite woman, in 2 Kings 4,
  • 00:10:16.170 --> 00:10:19.230
  • sandwiched her son in the Lord's anointing,
  • 00:10:19.240 --> 00:10:22.280
  • and he was brought back from death to life.
  • 00:10:22.290 --> 00:10:25.160
  • I believe this story gives us a picture of how covering
  • 00:10:25.170 --> 00:10:28.250
  • our children with the Lord's anointing
  • 00:10:28.260 --> 00:10:30.260
  • and surrounding them with his Word can cause them
  • 00:10:30.270 --> 00:10:33.210
  • to become spiritually alive.
  • 00:10:33.220 --> 00:10:35.170
  • Now, Elisha the Prophet had prophesied
  • 00:10:35.250 --> 00:10:38.220
  • that this Shunammite woman,
  • 00:10:38.230 --> 00:10:40.090
  • who had shown him kindness by providing a room
  • 00:10:40.100 --> 00:10:42.150
  • and bed for him, would have a son.
  • 00:10:42.160 --> 00:10:45.120
  • Her son was born, started growing up,
  • 00:10:45.130 --> 00:10:47.290
  • but died one day right in her arms.
  • 00:10:48.000 --> 00:10:50.200
  • So, this woman put her son on Prophet Elisha's bed,
  • 00:10:50.210 --> 00:10:54.160
  • which was soaked with anointing, just like how the hem
  • 00:10:54.170 --> 00:10:57.160
  • of Jesus' garment was filled with anointing
  • 00:10:57.170 --> 00:10:59.210
  • and could heal the woman with the issue of blood.
  • 00:10:59.220 --> 00:11:02.150
  • Later, when Elisha found out what had happened,
  • 00:11:02.160 --> 00:11:05.140
  • he came to the boy and stretched himself out on top of the boy.
  • 00:11:05.150 --> 00:11:10.160
  • My friend, do you see how the boy was in a divine,
  • 00:11:10.170 --> 00:11:13.210
  • anointed sandwich with the anointing below
  • 00:11:13.220 --> 00:11:16.210
  • and the anointing upon him,
  • 00:11:16.220 --> 00:11:19.090
  • and the boy was brought back to life?
  • 00:11:19.100 --> 00:11:22.150
  • You might be wondering, "Pastor Prince,
  • 00:11:22.160 --> 00:11:24.220
  • so how do I sandwich my children in the Lord's anointing?"
  • 00:11:24.230 --> 00:11:28.200
  • You can do this by speaking of the Lord Jesus
  • 00:11:28.210 --> 00:11:31.090
  • to your children, praying over them,
  • 00:11:31.100 --> 00:11:33.260
  • and meditating on the Word in their presence.
  • 00:11:33.270 --> 00:11:37.050
  • You can also share testimonies of amazing breakthroughs
  • 00:11:37.060 --> 00:11:40.030
  • with them and play anointed psalms, hymns,
  • 00:11:40.040 --> 00:11:43.090
  • and worship songs or sermons in the background at home.
  • 00:11:43.100 --> 00:11:47.070
  • Even if your children don't look like they are listening,
  • 00:11:47.080 --> 00:11:49.260
  • trust that seeds are being planted in their hearts.
  • 00:11:49.270 --> 00:11:53.100
  • You may not see fruits immediately,
  • 00:11:53.110 --> 00:11:55.100
  • but in due season, they will bear fruit.
  • 00:11:55.110 --> 00:11:58.090
  • Don't be discouraged if your children don't look
  • 00:11:58.100 --> 00:12:00.250
  • like they're interested in God's Word.
  • 00:12:00.260 --> 00:12:02.290
  • By faith, keep on telling them about your wonderful Jesus
  • 00:12:03.000 --> 00:12:07.030
  • who loves them unconditionally even when they fail,
  • 00:12:07.040 --> 00:12:10.120
  • who is their best friend, who loves them
  • 00:12:10.130 --> 00:12:13.000
  • like no other person does.
  • 00:12:13.010 --> 00:12:14.280
  • Keep bringing them to church, even if they don't understand
  • 00:12:14.290 --> 00:12:17.280
  • the teachings.
  • 00:12:17.290 --> 00:12:19.170
  • Our Lord Jesus said in Matthew 18,
  • 00:12:19.180 --> 00:12:22.060
  • "For where two or three are gathered together in my name,
  • 00:12:22.070 --> 00:12:25.110
  • I am there in the midst of them."
  • 00:12:25.120 --> 00:12:28.000
  • He's in the midst of your children
  • 00:12:28.010 --> 00:12:29.290
  • and his presence will guide and guard them.
  • 00:12:30.000 --> 00:12:33.200
  • If you are watching this and thinking,
  • 00:12:33.210 --> 00:12:35.220
  • "But Pastor Prince, my child has strayed so far,
  • 00:12:35.230 --> 00:12:38.170
  • "I don't know if they can be helped.
  • 00:12:38.180 --> 00:12:40.100
  • "I didn't do all these things while they were growing up
  • 00:12:40.110 --> 00:12:42.210
  • and now it's too late."
  • 00:12:42.220 --> 00:12:45.060
  • Listen, my friend, with God, it's never too late.
  • 00:12:45.070 --> 00:12:49.190
  • Stay tuned for the next segment, as I'll be sharing on how God
  • 00:12:49.200 --> 00:12:53.250
  • can touch your wayward child's heart and bring him or her home.
  • 00:12:53.260 --> 00:12:58.000
  • He loves and he cares about you and your family very much.
  • 00:12:58.010 --> 00:13:02.030

  • (announcer) To-do lists, texts, emails, work pressures,

  • 00:14:49.200 --> 00:14:55.200
  • Welcome back to the program.
  • 00:14:56.100 --> 00:14:58.130
  • As we've been talking about God's heart for our families
  • 00:14:58.140 --> 00:15:01.140
  • and for our children in particular,
  • 00:15:01.150 --> 00:15:03.100
  • I hope you've been blessed to see how God wants you
  • 00:15:03.110 --> 00:15:06.110
  • and your children to have days of heaven
  • 00:15:06.120 --> 00:15:09.120
  • upon the earth and how to start your children
  • 00:15:09.130 --> 00:15:12.060
  • on their faith walk, even as your rest in his Word
  • 00:15:12.070 --> 00:15:15.030
  • to keep them safe.
  • 00:15:15.040 --> 00:15:16.210
  • You can read about this in detail in my new book,
  • 00:15:16.220 --> 00:15:19.120
  • "Live the Let-Go Life."
  • 00:15:19.130 --> 00:15:21.190
  • Sometimes, even though we endeavor to teach them
  • 00:15:21.200 --> 00:15:23.290
  • about the Lord and his grace, they can still make bad choices
  • 00:15:24.000 --> 00:15:28.020
  • which can take them to dark places.
  • 00:15:28.030 --> 00:15:30.080
  • Today, you might be struggling with wayward children
  • 00:15:30.090 --> 00:15:33.020
  • and you are worried about the crowd they are mixing with
  • 00:15:33.030 --> 00:15:35.230
  • or about the things they have chosen to pursue,
  • 00:15:35.240 --> 00:15:38.200
  • and it's so hard because you can see that their choices
  • 00:15:38.210 --> 00:15:41.150
  • are hurting them.
  • 00:15:41.160 --> 00:15:42.280
  • It is hardest to let go when we love our children and feel like
  • 00:15:42.290 --> 00:15:46.100
  • we have lost control of them.
  • 00:15:46.110 --> 00:15:48.040
  • Our instinct is to hold on even tighter, but the best thing
  • 00:15:48.050 --> 00:15:51.260
  • we can do is to release them into the Lord's arms of love.
  • 00:15:51.270 --> 00:15:56.210
  • I remember when a precious lady in my church asked me to pray
  • 00:15:56.220 --> 00:15:59.240
  • for her teenage daughter, Joscelin.
  • 00:15:59.250 --> 00:16:02.070
  • Joscelin was a talented, highly accomplished athlete
  • 00:16:02.080 --> 00:16:05.130
  • who started representing Singapore
  • 00:16:05.140 --> 00:16:07.240
  • at international swimming meets at 11 years old.
  • 00:16:07.250 --> 00:16:11.170
  • However, Joscelin's mother was very worried
  • 00:16:11.180 --> 00:16:14.100
  • as she had fallen into bad company.
  • 00:16:14.110 --> 00:16:16.240
  • She had become rebellious and was caught up in a lifestyle
  • 00:16:16.250 --> 00:16:19.170
  • of wild partying.
  • 00:16:19.180 --> 00:16:21.110
  • We prayed for Joscelin and asked God to touch her
  • 00:16:21.120 --> 00:16:24.120
  • and turn her around.
  • 00:16:24.130 --> 00:16:26.160
  • This lady was afraid that it was too late for God to do anything,
  • 00:16:26.170 --> 00:16:29.270
  • but I encouraged her to trust him
  • 00:16:29.280 --> 00:16:31.190
  • and cast all her cares about her daughter to him.
  • 00:16:31.200 --> 00:16:35.020
  • In just a matter of months, Joscelin came to church
  • 00:16:35.030 --> 00:16:38.080
  • and was gloriously saved.
  • 00:16:38.090 --> 00:16:40.230
  • She didn't just leave her partying days behind,
  • 00:16:40.240 --> 00:16:43.170
  • she fell in love with Jesus.
  • 00:16:43.180 --> 00:16:45.200
  • She got involved in ministering and counseling people
  • 00:16:45.210 --> 00:16:48.110
  • in our church when she retired from swimming.
  • 00:16:48.120 --> 00:16:51.030
  • Joscelin once shared with me how the Lord saved her
  • 00:16:51.040 --> 00:16:54.020
  • from a life that was on the path to destruction.
  • 00:16:54.030 --> 00:16:57.180
  • (Joscelin) I was talented in swimming and joined
  • 00:16:58.050 --> 00:16:59.170
  • the National Swim Team when I was 11.
  • 00:16:59.180 --> 00:17:02.030
  • Very quickly, I became successful,
  • 00:17:02.040 --> 00:17:04.020
  • but this success exposed me to people and environments
  • 00:17:04.030 --> 00:17:07.000
  • that I was not ready for.
  • 00:17:07.010 --> 00:17:09.070
  • At 11, I began clubbing, and starting smoking
  • 00:17:09.080 --> 00:17:11.200
  • and drinking.
  • 00:17:11.210 --> 00:17:13.050
  • By 16, I was partying hard four to five times a week
  • 00:17:13.060 --> 00:17:16.080
  • and I had seen every vice associated with that lifestyle.
  • 00:17:16.090 --> 00:17:20.040
  • While I appeared successful,
  • 00:17:20.050 --> 00:17:21.270
  • I was really a mess on the inside.
  • 00:17:21.280 --> 00:17:24.180
  • I was lost, depressed, and suicidal.
  • 00:17:24.190 --> 00:17:28.210
  • I cut myself because the physical pain would
  • 00:17:28.220 --> 00:17:30.170
  • momentarily distract me from the mental
  • 00:17:30.180 --> 00:17:32.150
  • and emotional pain I was feeling.
  • 00:17:32.160 --> 00:17:35.010
  • Even though I was born into a Christian family,
  • 00:17:35.020 --> 00:17:36.280
  • I felt I couldn't turn to God for help because I thought
  • 00:17:36.290 --> 00:17:39.270
  • I had broken every one of his laws.
  • 00:17:39.280 --> 00:17:42.260
  • When I returned to Singapore for a short holiday,
  • 00:17:42.270 --> 00:17:45.180
  • my family shared with me a testimony they had heard
  • 00:17:45.190 --> 00:17:47.280
  • at church.
  • 00:17:47.290 --> 00:17:49.080
  • My older brother also invited me to church with him.
  • 00:17:49.090 --> 00:17:52.060
  • After turning him down numerous times,
  • 00:17:52.070 --> 00:17:54.040
  • I finally agreed to go.
  • 00:17:54.050 --> 00:17:57.020
  • Both times I went, I fell asleep
  • 00:17:57.030 --> 00:17:59.050
  • before the service had even begun.
  • 00:17:59.060 --> 00:18:01.270
  • However, on both occasions, I woke up
  • 00:18:01.280 --> 00:18:03.280
  • during the altar call and experienced something very odd.
  • 00:18:03.290 --> 00:18:07.100
  • I felt compelled to raise my hand each time.
  • 00:18:07.110 --> 00:18:10.290
  • The first time I felt that way, I ran out of the service.
  • 00:18:11.000 --> 00:18:14.110
  • The second time, I actually raised up my hand
  • 00:18:14.120 --> 00:18:17.000
  • and walked to the front to pray the sinner's prayer.
  • 00:18:17.010 --> 00:18:19.190
  • That was the turning point in my life.
  • 00:18:19.200 --> 00:18:22.020
  • As I continued attending church, I began to live the life
  • 00:18:22.030 --> 00:18:25.010
  • that Jesus had intended for me.
  • 00:18:25.020 --> 00:18:27.120
  • Thank you, Pastor Prince, for preaching the good news
  • 00:18:27.130 --> 00:18:29.240
  • that Jesus took the punishment for my sins and that I am now
  • 00:18:29.250 --> 00:18:33.110
  • the righteousness of God in Christ.
  • 00:18:33.120 --> 00:18:36.070
  • I hope you're encouraged by Joscelin's testimony.
  • 00:18:36.290 --> 00:18:39.230
  • She is one of the most successful competitive swimmers
  • 00:18:39.240 --> 00:18:42.100
  • in our nation, having won a record of 40 gold medals
  • 00:18:42.110 --> 00:18:47.050
  • at the Southeast Asian Games and represented Singapore
  • 00:18:47.060 --> 00:18:50.210
  • in 4 Olympic Games.
  • 00:18:50.220 --> 00:18:53.120
  • Today, she is a mother and is happily married to a pastor
  • 00:18:53.130 --> 00:18:57.000
  • in my church.
  • 00:18:57.010 --> 00:18:58.150
  • So, if you have a wayward child, know this,
  • 00:18:58.160 --> 00:19:01.150
  • it is never too late for God to turn things around.
  • 00:19:01.160 --> 00:19:06.060
  • Perhaps, like Joscelin, your child has strayed
  • 00:19:06.070 --> 00:19:08.250
  • into bad company, or maybe he shows no interest
  • 00:19:08.260 --> 00:19:12.070
  • in his studies and spends hours on computer games
  • 00:19:12.080 --> 00:19:15.140
  • or on social media instead.
  • 00:19:15.150 --> 00:19:17.190
  • Maybe your daughter is obsessed with her weight
  • 00:19:17.200 --> 00:19:20.060
  • and is struggling with anorexia, or she's going
  • 00:19:20.070 --> 00:19:23.160
  • from one bad relationship to another.
  • 00:19:23.170 --> 00:19:26.180
  • What can you do?
  • 00:19:26.190 --> 00:19:28.220
  • Let go, my friend.
  • 00:19:28.230 --> 00:19:30.120
  • Stop trying by your own efforts to change them.
  • 00:19:30.130 --> 00:19:33.210
  • The Lord loves them more than you ever can,
  • 00:19:33.220 --> 00:19:36.100
  • so put your trust in him.
  • 00:19:36.110 --> 00:19:38.000
  • Psalms 127 says that, "Unless the Lord builds the house,
  • 00:19:38.010 --> 00:19:42.130
  • we labor in vain."
  • 00:19:42.140 --> 00:19:44.190
  • The Lord is building your house today.
  • 00:19:44.200 --> 00:19:46.240
  • Will you stand still and see his salvation?
  • 00:19:46.250 --> 00:19:50.090
  • You can trust in the one who loves you and your family
  • 00:19:50.100 --> 00:19:53.260
  • more than you'll ever know.
  • 00:19:53.270 --> 00:19:55.190
  • Now, perhaps your child isn't wayward,
  • 00:19:55.200 --> 00:19:57.280
  • but your heart is burdened because they are going
  • 00:19:57.290 --> 00:19:59.240
  • through challenges and you don't know how to help them.
  • 00:19:59.250 --> 00:20:02.270
  • Perhaps your child has been diagnosed
  • 00:20:02.280 --> 00:20:05.030
  • with a medical condition or he's going
  • 00:20:05.040 --> 00:20:06.290
  • through anxiety attacks and meltdowns
  • 00:20:07.000 --> 00:20:09.140
  • because of pressures at school.
  • 00:20:09.150 --> 00:20:11.230
  • Maybe your boy is not developing as fast as he should
  • 00:20:11.240 --> 00:20:15.010
  • or your teenager is struggling with esteem issues.
  • 00:20:15.020 --> 00:20:18.150
  • Whatever the challenge may be, the greatest thing
  • 00:20:18.160 --> 00:20:21.170
  • that you can do is to surrender your child to Jesus.
  • 00:20:21.180 --> 00:20:25.260
  • I know it's hard, I am a father, but I've seen that
  • 00:20:25.270 --> 00:20:29.130
  • when we keep pointing our children to Jesus
  • 00:20:29.140 --> 00:20:32.030
  • and we stand on his Word,
  • 00:20:32.040 --> 00:20:33.210
  • he moves in that situation and transforms it.
  • 00:20:33.220 --> 00:20:37.120
  • I wanna encourage you to do what Moses' mother,
  • 00:20:37.130 --> 00:20:40.050
  • Jochebed, did in the Bible.
  • 00:20:40.060 --> 00:20:42.120
  • In Exodus, we read that when the children of Israel were
  • 00:20:42.130 --> 00:20:45.070
  • in Egypt, the Egyptians feared them because they were fruitful.
  • 00:20:45.080 --> 00:20:48.290
  • They multiplied and grew exceedingly mighty.
  • 00:20:49.000 --> 00:20:52.170
  • So, the Egyptians forced them into slavery and Egypt's king
  • 00:20:52.180 --> 00:20:55.260
  • decreed that every newborn boy was to be killed.
  • 00:20:55.270 --> 00:21:00.250
  • But by faith, Jochebed was not afraid
  • 00:21:00.260 --> 00:21:03.020
  • of the king's command and hid Moses for 3 months.
  • 00:21:03.030 --> 00:21:06.280
  • When she could no longer hide him,
  • 00:21:06.290 --> 00:21:09.000
  • she took an ark of bulrushes for him,
  • 00:21:09.010 --> 00:21:11.290
  • dipped it with asphalt and pitch, put the child in it,
  • 00:21:12.000 --> 00:21:15.180
  • and laid it in the reeds by the river.
  • 00:21:15.190 --> 00:21:18.190
  • Notice that Jochebed did not hide Moses
  • 00:21:18.200 --> 00:21:21.050
  • because she was afraid.
  • 00:21:21.060 --> 00:21:22.240
  • She hid him by faith.
  • 00:21:22.250 --> 00:21:25.060
  • My friend, is your faith in the words of doctors,
  • 00:21:25.070 --> 00:21:28.220
  • teachers, or psychologists who may have put
  • 00:21:28.230 --> 00:21:31.040
  • a death sentence on your child?
  • 00:21:31.050 --> 00:21:33.190
  • Perhaps experts have said there is no hope for your child.
  • 00:21:33.200 --> 00:21:36.240
  • Or are you going to put your faith in the Lord,
  • 00:21:36.250 --> 00:21:39.050
  • whose Words will not return to him void,
  • 00:21:39.060 --> 00:21:41.250
  • just like Jochebed did?
  • 00:21:41.260 --> 00:21:43.110
  • Where do you think Jochebed got the idea to place baby Moses
  • 00:21:43.120 --> 00:21:47.050
  • in an ark that was made waterproof
  • 00:21:47.060 --> 00:21:49.140
  • with asphalt and pitch?
  • 00:21:49.150 --> 00:21:51.140
  • Perhaps she had been meditating on how God instructed Noah
  • 00:21:51.150 --> 00:21:55.020
  • to build an ark that was covered with pitch
  • 00:21:55.030 --> 00:21:57.040
  • to save his household.
  • 00:21:57.050 --> 00:21:59.040
  • This means that when you focus and meditate on God's Word
  • 00:21:59.050 --> 00:22:02.190
  • like Jochebed did, he can lead you to do things
  • 00:22:02.200 --> 00:22:05.130
  • that can even save your children.
  • 00:22:05.140 --> 00:22:07.250
  • Jochebed put her baby boy in an ark.
  • 00:22:07.260 --> 00:22:10.080
  • The ark is a place of salvation, safety, and deliverance.
  • 00:22:10.090 --> 00:22:14.230
  • So, when you let go of your cares about your children,
  • 00:22:14.240 --> 00:22:17.230
  • you're not releasing them into dangerous waters.
  • 00:22:17.240 --> 00:22:20.160
  • You are placing them into the ark.
  • 00:22:20.170 --> 00:22:23.100
  • Those who were in Noah's ark were saved from the waters
  • 00:22:23.110 --> 00:22:26.000
  • of judgment, so the ark is a picture of our Lord Jesus
  • 00:22:26.010 --> 00:22:29.100
  • who bore the judgment for our sins on the cross.
  • 00:22:29.110 --> 00:22:32.220
  • When you meditate on God's Word and follow his leading,
  • 00:22:32.230 --> 00:22:36.040
  • you are putting your children into the hands of Jesus
  • 00:22:36.050 --> 00:22:39.290
  • who will never fail.
  • 00:22:40.000 --> 00:22:41.150
  • Even if bad things have happened to other children
  • 00:22:41.250 --> 00:22:43.270
  • in similar situations, you can trust
  • 00:22:43.280 --> 00:22:46.030
  • that your child is safe in Jesus' arms.
  • 00:22:46.040 --> 00:22:49.250
  • Pharaoh had actually ordered every newborn Hebrew baby
  • 00:22:49.260 --> 00:22:52.290
  • to be cast into the river.
  • 00:22:53.000 --> 00:22:54.240
  • Most likely, the bodies of other baby boys
  • 00:22:54.250 --> 00:22:57.040
  • already killed by the Egyptian soldiers
  • 00:22:57.050 --> 00:22:58.270
  • were floating in that river where Jochebed was,
  • 00:22:58.280 --> 00:23:02.180
  • but what happened to Moses when his mother trusted
  • 00:23:02.190 --> 00:23:05.170
  • in the Lord?
  • 00:23:05.180 --> 00:23:06.290
  • Pharaoh's own daughter found Moses and decided
  • 00:23:07.000 --> 00:23:10.000
  • to raise him as her own.
  • 00:23:10.010 --> 00:23:12.110
  • When you put your children in God's hands,
  • 00:23:12.120 --> 00:23:14.290
  • he can cause them to be at the right place
  • 00:23:15.000 --> 00:23:17.180
  • at the right time and save them from destruction.
  • 00:23:17.190 --> 00:23:21.050
  • God can bring the right people into their lives
  • 00:23:21.060 --> 00:23:23.180
  • who will care for them, teach them,
  • 00:23:23.190 --> 00:23:25.180
  • and provide for them.
  • 00:23:25.190 --> 00:23:27.140
  • God did not stop at saving Moses' life.
  • 00:23:27.150 --> 00:23:29.290
  • Jochebed was paid to take care of her own son
  • 00:23:30.000 --> 00:23:33.150
  • and Moses was sponsored by the treasury of Pharaoh,
  • 00:23:33.160 --> 00:23:36.180
  • the very same man who had ordered his death.
  • 00:23:36.190 --> 00:23:39.250
  • Parents, this is our God.
  • 00:23:39.260 --> 00:23:42.120
  • That's why you can let go.
  • 00:23:42.130 --> 00:23:44.140
  • Put your children in his hands.
  • 00:23:44.150 --> 00:23:46.180
  • He'll turn whatever the devil meant for evil around for good
  • 00:23:46.190 --> 00:23:50.120
  • and cause all things to work together
  • 00:23:50.130 --> 00:23:52.290
  • for their good and to his glory.
  • 00:23:53.000 --> 00:23:55.190
  • Like Jochebed, you can stand on God's Word and his promises
  • 00:23:55.200 --> 00:23:58.250
  • to care for your children and build your families.
  • 00:23:58.260 --> 00:24:02.070
  • As Isaiah 55:11 says, "So shall my Word be
  • 00:24:02.080 --> 00:24:05.280
  • "that goes forth from my mouth; it shall not return to me void,
  • 00:24:05.290 --> 00:24:10.030
  • "but it shall accomplish what I please,
  • 00:24:10.040 --> 00:24:12.280
  • "and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it."
  • 00:24:12.290 --> 00:24:16.190
  • If God promises something,
  • 00:24:17.090 --> 00:24:19.030
  • you can trust that he will do it.
  • 00:24:19.040 --> 00:24:22.220
  • Listen to this awesome promise in Isaiah 54,
  • 00:24:22.230 --> 00:24:26.270
  • "All your children shall be taught by the Lord,
  • 00:24:26.280 --> 00:24:30.030
  • and great shall be the peace of your children."
  • 00:24:30.040 --> 00:24:33.140
  • Wow, do you see that?
  • 00:24:33.200 --> 00:24:36.020
  • The Lord himself teaches your children.
  • 00:24:36.030 --> 00:24:39.070
  • All your children shall be taught by the Lord.
  • 00:24:39.080 --> 00:24:42.200
  • When he teaches them, not only shall they have peace,
  • 00:24:42.210 --> 00:24:45.270
  • but great peace, soundness, and well-being.
  • 00:24:45.280 --> 00:24:49.250
  • Today, whatever your children may be going through,
  • 00:24:49.260 --> 00:24:53.030
  • you can stand on this promise that they can be
  • 00:24:53.040 --> 00:24:55.240
  • completely healthy, whole, and well.
  • 00:24:55.250 --> 00:24:59.020
  • Parents, our hands are too small.
  • 00:24:59.030 --> 00:25:02.240
  • There is so much we cannot do for our children.
  • 00:25:02.250 --> 00:25:05.110
  • That's why the most important thing is to point them
  • 00:25:05.120 --> 00:25:08.130
  • to the Lord Jesus and let him care for them.
  • 00:25:08.140 --> 00:25:11.180
  • Today, you can live the let-go life
  • 00:25:11.190 --> 00:25:14.040
  • with regard to your family, because God himself
  • 00:25:14.050 --> 00:25:17.070
  • builds your house and watches over your children.
  • 00:25:17.080 --> 00:25:20.180
  • I pray your heart will be established
  • 00:25:20.190 --> 00:25:22.110
  • in knowing that because of Jesus' finished work,
  • 00:25:22.120 --> 00:25:24.290
  • your children can be blessed in every area of their lives.
  • 00:25:25.000 --> 00:25:29.220
  • I'm reminded of the story, in Exodus 10,
  • 00:25:29.230 --> 00:25:32.040
  • when Egypt was plunged into thick darkness,
  • 00:25:32.050 --> 00:25:35.090
  • yet all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings.
  • 00:25:35.100 --> 00:25:40.220
  • This was a supernatural light, just as the darkness
  • 00:25:40.230 --> 00:25:43.240
  • that covered Egypt was a supernatural darkness.
  • 00:25:43.250 --> 00:25:47.100
  • If the darkness was natural, the Egyptians could have used
  • 00:25:47.110 --> 00:25:50.010
  • natural light sources to dispel it.
  • 00:25:50.020 --> 00:25:52.180
  • Just as the Israelites had supernatural light
  • 00:25:52.190 --> 00:25:55.030
  • in their homes when all of Egypt was in darkness,
  • 00:25:55.040 --> 00:25:58.150
  • I pray that you and your children
  • 00:25:58.160 --> 00:26:00.110
  • will also experience the Lord's protection
  • 00:26:00.120 --> 00:26:02.240
  • and supernatural light, even in these dark times
  • 00:26:02.250 --> 00:26:06.020
  • we are living in.
  • 00:26:06.030 --> 00:26:07.210
  • In Jesus' mighty name, I speak blessings upon you
  • 00:26:07.220 --> 00:26:11.090
  • and your household and declare that your days and the days
  • 00:26:11.100 --> 00:26:14.250
  • of your children shall be as days of heaven upon the earth.
  • 00:26:14.260 --> 00:26:20.220
  • God bless you.
  • 00:26:20.230 --> 00:26:22.180
