How Mothers (of All Kinds) Invite God’s Favor

For You From The Word

Her children stand up and bless her. (Proverbs 31:28, NLT)

For You To Think About

One verse tucked away in Proverbs 31 describes the favor invited by motherhood: “Her children stand up and bless her” (NLT).

A child’s physical life is a testimony of their mother’s choice to bring them into the world. They have life.

A child also demonstrates the respect God has for mothers. God values motherhood. The mere presence of a child on earth invites God’s favor.

God’s blessing on mothers is not dependent upon the child. A child may choose to show his mother honor and say, “I appreciate my mother and wish God’s goodness on her” in word or deed … or not.

All mothers, regardless of how their children acknowledge them, incite God’s favor simply in the act of motherhood. A child’s existence invites God’s blessing on a mother, whether a birth mother, natural mother, adoptive mother, step mother, and even spiritual mother.

A mother has made it possible for a child to enter the world and live in it. Her children stand as a testimony to her sacrifice.

A Word to Pray

Heavenly Father,

Thank You for mothers – birth mothers, natural mothers, adoptive mothers, step mothers, and spiritual mothers – who have made it possible for children to have life and have it to the full. Allow them to experience Your favor. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
