She has no fear for the future for Her children are doubly clothed with scarlet.
Proverbs 31:21 & Proverbs 31:25
A prayer that erupted from my heart this morning, in which I felt a prophetic utterance on that I would like to share and encourage Mothers who are in the midst of raising their young children right now.
A lot of our time as Mothers can be spent worrying about our children, worrying about their future, meditating on questions like “are we raising them right?”, “are we doing enough to train them in the ways of the Lord?”. Many times we can find ourselves overwhelmed and clouded with feelings of condemnation and anxiety and even offering up prayers as Job did out of a place of fear. Our lifestyles are at such a hectic pace in this age and it can leave us feeling at the end of the day like it was a blur igniting feelings of anxiety that whisper to our hearts that we just aren’t capitalizing well enough on imparting the Lord into our children in these precious years that fly by so quickly.
BUT THE LORD SAYS THERE IS NO NEED TO FEAR MY BELOVED MOTHERS.
Proverbs 31:21 says : “She FEARS NOT the snow for her family, for all her household are doubly clothed in scarlet.”
SNOW can be a prophetic symbol of the harsh elements that life throws at us such as temptations, testings and trials. As parents we have lived life longer to know that life never throws us a perfect story. We have all walked through some blizzards of life. Because of that we can fear for our children’s future. “How will they handle the trials of life?” “Will they be ok?”, “Will they continue to choose God over the world?”, “I don’t want them to make the same mistakes I have and suffer in ways I have because of those mistakes”. Does this sound familiar at all, or am I the only one who gets taunted by these thoughts?
The SCARLET garments speaks of the garment of the redemption of Christ. Christ is the scarlet garment. The double refers to a double layer bringing extra warmth and comfort, protecting from the harsh elements of the cold. This double layered garment may be referred to the double garments Isaiah 61:10 speaks of the garment of salvation and the robe of righteousness. We receive righteousness as a gift through receiving the gift of salvation.
WE DON’T NEED TO FEAR FOR THE FUTURE OF OUR CHILDREN
Proverbs 31:25 AMPC
“Strength and dignity are her clothing and her position is strong and secure; she rejoices over the future [knowing that she and her family are in readiness for it!]”
Do not fear beloved Mothers for the future of your children. Even for the present times now of your children. For if we wrap our children in Christ, they will be ready for whatever season life may throw at them.
I INVITE YOU INTO THIS PRAYER OF THE SCARLET GARMENT:
Thank you Lord for the gift of my beautiful children. Thank you for the Grace and the ability to train these ones in the ways of the Lord. Open my eyes and cause me to see every opportunity that presents itself before me to speak Christ and His ways into their lives. Whether it be driving them to school, sport, around the dinner table or putting them to bed, may you open up divine conversations that will allow me to plant, sow and impart Christ and weave His Kingdom into the fabric of their hearts. May you place the right words into my mouth that drip with Godly instruction and wisdom. May these words and instructions wrap their hearts in SCARLET, preparing them for whatever this world would want to throw at them. Through life’s temptations, testings and trials, may my prayers and teachings never leave them and act in those times as a double scarlet garment of warmth and shielding them and bringing comfort. May they truly know the gift of salvation that has bought them their righteousness. May they live to know you and walk with you all the days of their lives in the name of Jesus.
