Fear of God Devotional: What Does the Fear of God Look Like in Children?

How does the fear of God affect the lives of our children?

Jason Dohm shares how he and his wife could tell right away when each of their children became regenerate. They noticed a definite change, a change that was connected to the fear of God.

When their children became regenerate, many of their children had a pattern of deception – but when they became born again, they became much more trustworthy. He explains how he would attribute that change to them knowing that God was in the room, realizing that everything they did was known, and how he and his wife didn’t have to be present with them because they knew God was present. They were beginning to fear the Lord even more. Their hearts were changing. What a merciful and good God we serve!

Ezekiel 11:19 (NKJV) – “Then I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within them, and take the stony heart out of their flesh, and give them a heart of flesh.”
