Faith in our Covenant God

"I'm holding onto the covenant promies of God for our covenant children with the white knuckles of faith." --Dal Stanton

The white knuckles of faith. . . That phrase gripped me when I heard Dal talking last week. Holding on to God, holding on even when our faith is weak. . . Not just for our children, but for ourselves and for all that He has promised.

Hey TG!

You know me enough to know that I'm not asking this with ulterior motives, but I'm having a tough time getting the whole "covenant children" concept. I had the same issue when I was reading Tripp's SACH. So, if you have time, could you elaborate on this a little bit?

Grace and Peace,

Oh yes, keep hanging on! Miss you... think about you all so often. I'm thrilled that I get to follow along with the transitions through your blogging. Keep it up!

Laura, *mush, mush* Thank you.

I hear you. To be honest, I'm not quite in a good place to have a deep discussion about anything. *L* But here are some past discussions that touch on these ideas:

The T in Tulip and Children
De facto Baby Sprinklers
Child as Sinner (An admitted oversimplification, but quick reference.)

My copy of SACH is in storage still, so I am very vague about what Tripp teaches at this point related to children in the Covenant. I remember not being completely at ease with what he said, though. *shrug* For whatever that's worth. . .

Personally, a lot of my understanding of my relationship with my children has shifted over time, in part because of a heightened awareness of children in the Covenant.
