Reaching Your Rebel's Heart

Can a homeschool mama reach the heart of a rebel? In Episode 37 of the Hey, Mama! Homeschool Show: Reaching Your Rebel’s Heart, Stephanie Morrison reminds parents that they are not wrestling against flesh and blood. The battle is the Lord’s. Mamas can reach a rebel’s heart not in their own strength but by using God’s Word, prayer, and faith. Find the show notes on HomeschoolShow.com.

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” (Hebrews 11:1) “For we walk by faith, not by sight.” (2 Corinthians 5:7) “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds; casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; and having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.” (2 Corinthians 10:4–6) “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; and your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God: praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.” (Ephesians 6:10–18) “As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations, before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.” (Romans 4:17) “. . . but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” (Joshua 24:15b) “Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.” (Philippians 4:11) “For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, what things soever ye desire when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” (Mark 11: 23–24)
