The Quiet, Reserved Ones, you know the ones who don’t make waves, we even call them peacemakers, they tend to get the “stamp of good” approval.
It is often said the squeaky wheel gets the oil.. and while this is not scripture, it is a huge scheme the enemy uses to make us overlook or grow complacent towards our quiet ones.
Remember what is the difference between a Christian and not? Simply that we have been awakened to know our need for Our Savior, time with Our Savior, daily, every hour, every minute. And when we know our need, we pray!! This is the greatest grace we can teach and set the example to our kids and even our spouse! Just because a child or person is quiet and/or reserved, he/she is not innately good, he/she is just as much in desperate need to seek Jesus as the loud one. Raise em up, ask God to reveal the slightest fruit (ripe or rotten) in that quiet, seemingly patient heart, (most definitely that child holds bitterness, sadness, and the like, just like we all do) and when He does Praise God because that is His great providence to you to teach and demonstrate grace whether the fruit was ripe or rotten, that is Grace! Run and Go to God in prayer with your loved One, oh what marvelous grace to do this work! God you are a God of all grace, show us Your Glory!
Resist the enemy, standing firm in your faith and in the knowledge that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kinds of suffering. And after you have suffered for a little while, The God of All Grace, Who has called you to His eternal glory In Christ, will Himself restore you, secure you, strengthen you, and establish you. To Him be the power forever and ever. Amen.… 1 Peter 5:9-11
