So it’s crazy right? Everything that was predicted for the future in the movie all came true…even the possibility is at hand that the Cubs may win the World Series!!!
I grew up in love with Michael J. Fox…I watched every one of those movies hating Biff, loving the professor, and tormented just like every teen about how I wish I could at times go back and change my future. It’s an iconic film that us kids of the 80’s and 90’s love to show our progeny.
But there is a powerful message here. One as parents that simply can not be overlooked.
I remember as a kid hearing a recording of Jules Verne…
“If you believe it, you can achieve it.”
And for Back to the Future II, almost as though because it was said, spoken, and considered…it came to fruition.
Hydrated food, self-tying shoes, video chat, a phone in your eyewear, a hoverboard…
And the Cubs.
Parents, never underestimate the power of what you consider, believe, and speak over your children. Sometimes, even despite what you consider or believe, your words can have an incredibly powerful effect that can change their future. In many cases, we can frame the future of our children with our words, which will translate into faith and belief the more we remind ourselves and our children what our God promises for them.

“For I know the plans I have for you…plans to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11
God has His plans for these children of yours. Lean in. Pray. Believe. Speak it over them. And no matter how big or how crazy that plan may seem to you, speak it out in faith over your kids. Even if and especially if those plans seem too far fetched.
I oughta know. When David and I got married, due to many different health and fertility issues I was unlikely to ever conceive a child. At our engagement party, my mother-in-law toasted to her “many future grandchildren.”
And today…we are probably some of the most fruitful family members you’ll ever hope to meet!
Power in the spoken word, folks. Power in the word of faith and the hope we have in a God who delights in blowing our minds because of His complete capability and our lack of it totally.
So what things would you speak in faith today over your children and family? In what ways would you want to frame their future with your words, and even more importantly, His Word?
