ARE YOU A PRAYING MOTHER?........IT'S BY GOD'S DESIGN.
I'm a mother of two grown boys. Maybe you are a mother of children or, even if you are like a mother to children, you will understand this special blog.
I have always been fascinated by the Bible story in 1 Kings 3: 16-28. It is a story about two women. ( actually harlots) that each having infant son's, claimed to be the actual mother of this one baby boy. In which a situation arose ! ( this is my paraphrased ).
See, these two women lived in the same household. One had delivered her infant son, then 3 days later the other woman delivered her infant son.
One of the women's son's had died during the night. That woman being heart broken , arose at midnight took her dead son and switched with the other woman's living infant son, laying the dead son beside the woman's bosom and taking the living son to lay at her bosom.
Being they lived in a household with no others : at morning light there arose a bitter argument between them. The woman knew the dead child was not her child laying in her bosom.
Solomon was the King at this time, and both women went before King Solomon with their great distress.
King Solomon, hears from each mother, one saying this dead son is her's not mine, the other woman say's no, I know the son I bore the dead son is not the one I bore.
The king said, " bring me a sword." He said cut the living son in two, and give half to the one, and half to the other. BUT, then spake the woman whose the living child was unto the king. O my Lord, give her the living child, and in no wise slay it. But the other said, let it be neither mine or thine, but divide it. Then the king answered ; In his true Godly wisdom." Give her the living child, and in no wise slay it; she is the true mother. "
Mothers; God, by His infinite design, has put into a mother ; compassion, love , prayer , that when you know Him as your Savior, you can't help but want the best for your child. That's why you will be a Praying Mother.
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to the women that love a child, whether it's one you bore or one you care for. Be a praying mother......It's by God's design.
For the King and His Kingdom.
