Following My Daughter’s Lead

Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples. Psalm 96:3

Following My Daughter's Lead

My daughter loves to tell others who her parents are.

When in close proximity to any willing listener, she will point and say, “That’s my mommy, and that’s my daddy!” Her face shows delight when introducing us.

My husband and I secretly enjoy when she does this. We are happy she is proud to call us her parents. Her love for us shines in each introduction and empowers her to  speak up and declare who we are. 

Isn’t this how we should be about God?

Are we telling others who our Heavenly Father is? Are we proud to introduce Him? Are we willing to share who He is and all He stands for because we love Him that much? 

Sometimes, I am slow to speak God’s name to others. I am afraid of creating an awkward or uncomfortable setting with those who do not view God as I do. I worry if another post of scripture on social media might make readers annoyed. 

I let Satan cultivate thoughts that can hold me back, keeping me from doing what I see my child do best, which is tell others about a Parent I love. 

I’m not going to let the Father of Lies (John 8:44) win anymore. Instead, I’m going to follow my daughter’s lead and the truths of the Bible. 

Psalm 96:3 reads, “Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples.”

God makes it clear that we are not to be silent when declaring His glory and wonders! If we stop and think about what He has blessed us with, and what a joy it is to have Him in our lives, how can we stay silent? Don’t we want everyone to experience and see the eternal gift God has given us? A gift that was given through the ultimate sacrifice Jesus made, in a show of perfect love for mankind.

I have decided, I would rather stand before the throne of God, knowing I had introduced Him to as many as I could, than hang my head for moments I was silent against Him. 

When we find ourselves in moments to introduce our Father to someone, may we follow the lead of my daughter. May we be courageous, bold, and proud to speak God’s name, as we declare the glory and wonders He offers for all!
