Faith’s Checkbook

Are the Children In?
I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring. (Isaiah 44:3)

Our dear children have not the Spirit of God by nature, as we plainly see. We see much in them
which makes us fear their future, and this drives us to agonizing prayer. When a son becomes
specially perverse, we cry with Abraham, “Oh, that Ishmael might live before thee!” We would sooner
see our daughters Hannahs than empresses. This verse should greatly encourage us. It follows upon
the words, “Fear not, O Jacob, my servant,” and it may well banish our fears.
The Lord will give His Spirit; will give it plentifully, pouring it out; will give it effectually, so that it shall
be a real and eternal blessing. Under this divine outpouring our children shall come forward, and “one
shall say, I am the Lord’s, and another shall call himself by the name of Jacob.”
This is one of those promises concerning which the Lord will be inquired of. Should we not, at set
times, in a distinct manner, pray for our offspring? We cannot give them new hearts, but the Holy
Spirit can, and He is easily to be entreated. The great Father takes pleasure in the prayers of
fathers and mothers. Have we any dear ones outside of the ark? Let us not rest till they are shut in
with us by the Lord’s own hand.
