We are part of a generation that is facing an unprecedented problem. The environment we are growing up in is hostile in so many ways.
A generation that’s unique.
A generation that’s under attack.
Child prostitution and slavery, teenage abortions, child soldiers, drug runners, these are only a few of the many ways the generation is being abused. Children live rampant on the streets, millions don’t get enough nutrition and basic amenities.
Teenage suicide rates in developed countries are climbing. Do we want our children to be facing such a stressful environment?
We are called to stand in the gap and intercede for the next generation. The devil is aiming to thwart God’s plan for the next generation.
The Lord thunders at the head of his army; his forces are beyond number, and mighty is the army that obeys his command. The day of the Lord is great; it is dreadful. Who can endure it? (Joel 2:11 NIV)
We have a destiny. We are an army. We are a generation that is unleashed with God’s mighty anointing because have God’s family.
“ ‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. (Acts 2:17 NIV)
The young and old will move together, and generations will converge and conquer.
If our generation is mobilized without the hearts of the fathers and spiritual parents turned to them, we don’t have a youth movement but instead, we will have a rebellion on our hands.
God is restoring His church. He is restoring the families and mending the broken bridges within families.
When there is synergy between the generations, there will be twofold anointing, but the work doesn’t end there.
We, the next generation, must live out our lives righteously, one that lives for the honour of our spiritual parents. We are called to be holy. Happiness comes with holiness. God is more than our best friend, but he is the savior king, Lord of Heaven and Earth.
We must hunger for God’s word. We must raise up the next generation to be one that chases after God’s own heart, one that seeks revelations from God. Not only must they be holy, but also humble. Our young people need to be the exact opposite from the trends of the world.
Youths must recognize that they will receive spiritual blessing when they align their visions to their spiritual leaders and submit to their authority.
