The other day I read, “Here I am with the children the Lord has given me to be signs and wonders in Israel” Isaiah 8:18 csb. The author of the book said that Isaiah knew God’s promises and blessings were still in effect in troubled Israel because of the children. It is her opinion that children are our “signs and wonders” that God continues to have good plans for us.


While I’m not sure that is what Isaiah 8:18 means, but it got me to thinking. We were at our son’s home not long ago to tend to Landry and Logan while Owen was born. To us, those boys are “signs and wonders” of God’s promise for a future and hope. As Psalm 127:3 states, “children are an heritage of the LORD”. These boys and the children at church and children we see everywhere should remind us that God is not through with us. He is still creating these little people who light up our lives.


As I held little Owen I could see God’s handiwork in his perfect little face and body. As I chased 2 year old Logan around I saw God’s creation of strength and energy anew. As I helped Landry with his 1st grade work, I marveled at the power God has given us to learn so well and so quickly. 


In these hard times, don’t lose hope. (I am speaking to myself too.) God is not done with us. He reminds us of His love, His goodness, and hope in Him with these children around us. As the song says, “Thank God for Kids”!
