But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations PS 33:11I am so grateful that whether or not I do the right thing. Whether or not I make correct parenting choices God can and will draw my children unto himself.
The Lord Almighty has sworn, "Surely, as I have planned, so it will be, and as I have purposed, so it will stand. Is 14:24
God knew the plans He had for my children before I even gave birth to them. God's Spirit speaks to the heart of His children and draws them into a relationship. In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, Eph 1:11
Yet, before the twins were born or had done anything good or bad--in order that God's purpose in election might stand: Rom 9:11Please understand me, I'm not saying that as a parent I don't have the responsibility to do the best job I can, to teach my children about God etc.. What I am saying is that it's God who draws them. It's God who saves them regardless of my right or wrong choices as a parent. And that is something to be thankful for!
