Dear Parent, do not forget every child is created for a unique purpose unto God.
The Lord has made everything for his own purposes…
One of our assignments as parents is to help our children discover their spiritual gifts not just their natural talents but use their gifts and talents to begin to live out their purposes. It is a tragedy for a child not to discover his/her purpose.
2 Timothy 1:6
For this reason, I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands.
In order to help our children navigate life avoiding identity crisis, we have to spend time with them to study the Word of God, pray with them and bless them by laying of hands. This stirs and fans into flame the gifts of God upon their lives.
It is a great honour given to us as parents to lead our children to Christ reconnecting them back to their Source, God. He loves them and has a reason and a plan for why they were born or even created in the first place. When our children understand early in life, who and Whose they are, the reason they are created and the purpose they exist here on earth, identity crisis will be far from them. Failure to reconnect them back to GOD early in life will leave a space and emptiness, that society, peers, movies, games, etc., would fill but still leaving a burning desire to be filled by God. Our inability to channel them properly to God would lead them to fill the emptiness with the wrong things and the temporary pleasures that the world presents leading to more identity crises and a search for who they are and why they are here on earth. The discovery of who they are through their personal relationship with God and His Word makes them sons of the Most High God, saving them from identity crisis and builds confidence, boldness, courage as they impact their world without fear. Daniel 11:32
… but the people who know their God shall be strong and carry out great exploits.
The awareness of who and Whose they are stirs up strength in them to take up the world for God. Let us spend that quality time with them as we emphasize and continually remind them of who they are in Christ and why they are created.
