spoke of Jesus from the Majestic Glory, saying “This is my Son, whom I love, with him I am well pleased.”
We too can speak these power giving words to our children. Imagine, in front of others, saying “This is my daughter, I love her!” or “Son, you did well.” Or “That is my child, I am so proud of him!”
My nephew heard me referring to J.T. as my “son”; it was something like, “Thank you, Son.” He turned to his mom and said, “I like that, wish you would call me, ‘Son’.”
Speak openly of your relationship by using “son” and“daughter”.
Let them know of your continual love, constant and unwavering. Whenever possible voice your pleasure. Who doesn’t want to know they please another.
Follow our Heavenly Father’s example and SPEAK words of love and pleasure to your children.
When referring to these words, II Peter says, “He received honor
and glory from God the Father when the voice came to Him”… Don’t be afraid to speak honor and glory into your children. Be sincere. Gushing insincerely has an opposite effect.
Make it an assignment at first if this is not a natural habit,
then as you become more comfortable the habit will develop. Our role as parent is full of correction and guiding; but as God the Father shows us, it must also speak love and pleasure.
