Before I even became a mom, I knew that having a child meant that the enemy would seek my child’s heart and soul, and that I would need the help of the Holy Spirit to fight him. But I really thought it would happen when they were older—when my kids were in school and making decisions for themselves. But I can already feel it; the enemy wants my baby to not learn about God.
I recently joined BSF (Bible Study Fellowship) and I know I am supposed to be there. But Satan does NOT! He does not want over 70,000 women and their children worldwide gathering to study the Bible. The first couple of weeks are a little chaotic, and the babies and little kids do not like it. They cry a lot of the time being separated from mom. There are hiccups with registering and getting assigned a group; and it is stressful making it on time. Babies’ routines are ruined.
Satan wants us to drop out of our Bible study. He tries to make us feel overwhelmed with the homework. He tries to get us to drop out by having our children cry. He tries to make us discouraged with the time it takes out of our schedule. He tries to make us distracted during the lecture so we don’t hear the good news.
I overheard a leader from the children’s program saying “Do not worry about a thing! Your baby will be in great hands. The devil wants moms here to worry and stay home from this Bible study. We will not let him win!”
I do not want Satan to win! I know that going to a Bible study is so essential for my spiritual growth, and also for my baby’s. Even the infants at this Bible study hear, learn, grow and respond to God and His word. The children’s leaders pray for the children, sing hymns, and teach a Bible story.
Matthew 19:14 says “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” I do not want to hinder my children from learning about Jesus, especially for a reason as trivial as a little separation anxiety and schedule interruption.
I want to study, savor, and live out God’s truth every week with other Godly women!
PLEASE don’t let the devil win with the excuses he plants in your head—join a Bible study today!
