2-Year-Old Boy Worshipping The Lord To ‘The Blessing’

Worship is our sacrifice of praise to God, it has everything to do with God and not us. It is not about our performance but all about the glory of God. As parents, we need to help our kids to be engaged in worship from a young age just like the parent of this 2-year-old did.

A Texas mom has shared a video of her 2-year-old son raising his hands and singing the song, ‘The Blessing’. The clip has got over two million views due to the pure worship of the boy.

Eric and Mandy Godwin have brought up their children in the fear and knowledge of the Lord. And their fruit of labor was evident when their 2-year-old adopted son, Ezekiel was captured worshipping the Lord in spirit and in truth.

“He’s survived an attempted abortion…not once, but twice,” Mandy shared in their joint Facebook account. “From the moment we brought him home from the hospital, we knew he was special. God has mighty plans for this one.” Further noting that Ezekiel’s name means “God strengthens.”

The couple were cleaning their kitchen when they played “The Blessing” by Elevation Worship in the background. “For 2.5-year-old Ezekiel, it’s more than just background noise…it’s his anthem!” they continued. “When he heard it, he immediately abandoned his Little Tikes dump truck in his bedroom and sprinted downstairs to show the rest of us where true strength is found!”

He’s survived an attempted abortion…not once, but twice.

From the moment we brought him home from the hospital, we knew he was special. God has mighty plans for this one.

His name means “God strengthens.”

He immediately became the little brother to 4 older siblings. Eight months later, he became a big brother.

He’s special in so many ways. He’s smart as a whip. He’s more athletic and agile than I could ever dream of being. He’s got that irresistible twinkle of joy in his eyes. He loves music, especially worship music. He can dance better than anyone in our family. He loves to pray…with passion.

Today, as we were cleaning the kitchen after lunch, we decided we needed some “background” music.

For 2.5-year-old Ezekiel, it’s more than just background noise…it’s his anthem!

When he heard it, he immediately abandoned his Little Tikes dump truck in his bedroom and sprinted downstairs to show the rest of us where true strength is found!

“The Lord bless you
And keep you,
Make His face shine upon you
And be gracious to you.
The Lord turn His
Face toward you
And give you peace.

May His favor be upon you
And a thousand generations
And your family and your children
And their children and their children.

May His presence go before you
And behind you and beside you
All around you, and within you
He is with you, He is with you…”

To Zeke, these words are alive.
The music is playing. Can you hear it?

The parents’ admiration of their son Ezekiel is evident as they described him, “He’s special in so many ways. He’s smart as a whip. He’s more athletic and agile than I could ever dream of being.”

They continued, “He’s got that irresistible twinkle of joy in his eyes. He loves music, especially worship music. He can dance better than anyone in our family. And He loves to pray…with passion.”

Praise be to God ! This child shall grow to be Great in the eyes and Name of our Lord ! Great compassion such as this is a gift from the Lord !

Great Christian couple raising great kids. Kids see and assimilate every single behaviour modeled to them. May God make us adult Christians model Christ-likeness to them, as it is the only legacy that will successfully see our children through time and eternity.
