Have you ever heard someone say, "God moves in mysterious ways"? I sure am glad that statement isn't true. The will of God doesn't have to be mysterious.

Here are seven things you can assure your son or daughter of that God has promised for their future.
  1. God's will is salvation. Our heavenly Father desires that all of humankind have eternal life with Him. That includes your child.
  2. God's will is dominion. Dominion simply means control. God wants your teen to apply His Word and take control of their body, thought life, attitude, and future.
  3. God's will is discipleship. We are all to grow in our walk with Christ. As we mature, we are to help others do the same.
  4. God's will is unity. Encourage your child's words and actions to be united with God's Word.
  5. God's will is stewardship. Challenge them to take proper care of their time, money, abilities, and all God has entrusted them with.
  6. God's will is relationships. Through the power of relationships, they will be able to accomplish things that would be impossible if they were on their own.
  7. God's will is progressive. God has a plan for their life that will be completed one step at a time, not in leaps or bounds.
