By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.
(Heb. 11:3)
Through God's Word and faith in His Word, He framed the worlds. In Genesis chapter one, one phrase is repeatedly used: "And God said." Then what He spoke came to pass.

God called things that were not as though they already were (Rom. 4:17), and with children, it's important that we call them blessed. It's important to speak what we desire to see in them based upon God's Word rather than coming into agreement with existing negative circumstances.

A few examples of framing your children with God's Word are:
All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children."
(Isa. 54:13)
Using this verse, you can frame your children by saying: "My children are taught of the Lord, and great is the peace of my children."
And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord.
(Eph. 6:4)
Using this verse, you can frame your children by saying: "My children are raised up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Thank God, my children hear the voice of the Holy Spirit."
If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land.
(Isa. 1:19)
You can frame your children by saying: "My children are willing and obedient, and they eat the good of the land."
Delight yourself also in the Lord, And He shall give you the desires of your heart.
(Ps. 37:4)
You can frame your children by saying: "My children delight themselves in the Lord, and He gives them the desires of their heart."

As you frame your children with the Word of God, what you speak over them will come to pass, because the Word is " and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart." (Heb. 4:12)

A couple who were on staff at Victory Christian Center a few years ago and who are now pastoring, shared how their three boys took turns reading Charles Capps' confession book when they travelled in the car.

One would read the confessions, such as: "I am a new creature in Christ Jesus. Greater is He Who is in me than he who is in the world." Then everyone else would repeat it.

In this way, God's Word of who thy are in Christ was instilled in them. Today, these three young men are walking in the light of God's Word, because their parents sowed the Word into their lives.

Each day I frame my children with the Word of God. For example:

Father, I thank You that Your angels are watching over Sarah, Ruth, John, and Paul, and they are protected day and night. I thank You that they're delivered from all evil. I thank You that the helmet of salvation is about them and the blood of Jesus covers them. I thank You, Lord Jesus, that You are teaching them and working in them, both to will and to do Your good pleasure."

I suggest you do it to.
