Most recently, after posting an evangelism video on Tik Tok, a video showed up in my feed of a Mom and her baby boy. She was speaking evil over her toddler. And then he agreed with her. As a Christian father, I was very shocked to see this.
As adults, we have the choice to obey God’s commandments or to go our own way and do our own thing. Everyone has their own belief system, but they can make those choices as teenagers or adults. I will always be nice to people who are different than I am and show the love of Christ which lives in me.
Speaking what one truly knows as a sin into their child’s life is opening doors of a demonic nature. Dabbling in the occult or encouraging another to willfully sin, can be very dangerous and open both you and your family to a demonic possession or oppression.
Although when Jesus was teaching the disciples about who the greatest was, in Matthew 18:6, Jesus said; “but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.”
Children are very vulnerable and their faith is great. To speak evil over a child is literally causing them to sin. It’s introducing sin into their lives and causing them to potentially be open to evil spirits.
Titus 3:2 reads, “To speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people.”
Ephesians 4:29, “Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.”
1 Peter 3:10, “Whoever desires to love life and see good days, let him keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit.”
Mark 7:21-23, “For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, coveting, wickedness, deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within, and they defile a person.”
Mothers should be protecting their children as opposed to speaking evil over them. It is literally invoking sin over their lives. See Psalm 82:3-4, Psalm 127:3, Matthew 18:10, Ephesians 5:11, Proverbs 22:6, Psalm 139:13-16, and Ephesians 5:11. A mother influencing her toddler to potentially sin against God is chilling and many would consider it an evil act.
Apparently, this mother does not know Jesus herself. If she truly did, she would not be speaking evil over her son. The Bible says that the evil one roams our world like a lion who sets out to destroy everything in his sight. See 1 Peter 5:8, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walking about, seeking whom he may devour.” Those who do not have a personal relationship with Jesus is vulnerable themselves to the wiles of Satan.
Here are some Scriptures to pray over your child:
Psalm 145:1, “I will extol you, my God and King, and bless your name forever and ever.”
Jeremiah 24:7, “I will give them a heart to know that I am the Lord, and they shall be my people and I will be their God, for they shall return to me with their whole heart.”
Hebrews 12:6, “For the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and chastises every son whom he receives.”
Psalm 37:3, “Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness.”
Ephesians 2:10, “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”
I pray that you will choose to speak positive godly affirmations over your child. Pray for them as well as with them. Teach them the ways of the Lord and they will never leave the faith. See Proverbs 22:6, “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.”
