We are called as Christians to train up our children. This training also includes educating our children for Him. This means our goals should forever be on spiritual excellence of each of our children, and homeschool them for spiritual growth, and not for educational excellence.
How should I begin to homeschool?
How should I begin each school year?
How should I begin each day?
How should I deal with questions, concerns, or trials I face everyday?
It’s our trust in the Lord by taking a step of faith, that He may be glorified in our homeschooling for Him.
“Thus says the LORD, “Cursed is the man who trusts in mankind and makes flesh his strength, and whose heart turns away from the LORD.” ~ Jer 17:5 (NASB)
“Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD and whose trust is the LORD.” Jer 17:7 (NASB)
How do you continue to homeschool?
“Hear, my son, your father’s instruction and do not forsake your mother’s teaching…” Prov 1:8 (NASB)
God has given us a very simple plan in educating our children.
“You shall teach them to your sons, talking of them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road and when you lie down and when you rise up. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates…” Deuteronomy 11:19-20 (NASB)
You must have faith when you are homeschooling for Him. The Lord will be glorified through your efforts to exalt Him. When you homeschool day exalts the Lord, He will help you to advance your children academically for His Kingdom and for His good use!
“Behold, My servant will prosper, He will be high and lifted up and greatly exalted.” Isaiah 52:13 (NASB)
First thing you must do is to train yourself and your children to pray for everything! In 1 The 5:17 says that we are to “pray without ceasing.”
“Now in a large house there are not only gold and silver vessels, but also vessels of wood and of earthenware, and some to honor and some to dishonor. Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from these things, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified, useful to the Master, prepared for every good work. Now flee from youthful lusts and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart.” 2 Timothy 2:20-22 (NASB)
