For Such A Time As This

I just turned 35, I’m not old (regardless of what my daughter says) but even in my life span I’ve seen this world grow terribly dark. I can see the evil and wickedness. What was once something people would hide behind closed doors is now something people publish with pride. These things happening around us will either cause you to lock yourself up in your home to wait for the return of Jesus, or they could fuel you to understand God’s urgency.

The Bible says in Romans 5:20 “But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound.” See, God has placed His finger on one generation before His Son would return, and that generation is US. Search it out for yourself! Every prophecy that needs to be fulfilled has already been fulfilled. Scripturally, there’s nothing holding back the return of Christ but 2 Peter 3:9, “The Lord isn’t really being slow about his promise, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent.”

Webster’s Dictionary defines generation as “The people of the same period, or living at the same time.” A generation isn’t people ranging from 35-80, it’s EVERYONE–from the tiniest baby to the oldest man. When you think about that, it should excite you! You were chosen for such a time as this! Your children were chosen for such a time as this. He could have reserved anyone but he CHOSE you, He CHOSE them! He always saves the best for last and that’s why you and your family are on the scene.

We have the power to change this dark world and fill it with light! We are the people chosen to usher in the greatest move of God this world has ever seen. Don’t be afraid to tell people about Jesus. Don’t be afraid for your children and how they’ll make it out in that world. God has chosen them. No harm will come against them. No evil will come near their dwelling.
Joel 2:28-29 talks about you and your children! Did you know that? It says,

Then, after doing all those things,
I will pour out my Spirit upon all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy.
Your old men will dream dreams,
and your young men will see visions.
In those days I will pour out my Spirit
even on servants—men and women alike.

Panic, anxiety and stress will come on you if you quit listening to God’s Word and focus in on the news and what’s happening around you. Embrace your call! Encourage your children with this. We must be stronger than ever in our faith! There’s a world full of people that are crying and dying. We must understand the responsibility God has given those He has chosen. You, me, our children. We must step up to the call and do our part.

Like Esther, she had to push through the fear and doubt and simply rise up to the occasion. She realized she had been chosen but if she never did anything, she and her people would have all died! That’s the urgency and severity of our calling today. He’s reserved us for right now, let us also, rise up to the occasion! This generation will be saved. Our children will be right in the middle of the greatest awakening this world has ever seen.

In Jesus name!,

Fear & Anxiety In A Child

When we were kids depression and anxiety was something that happened to the older generation. Through the means of social media, tv and music, the devil has permeated his gospel of fear to our generation and even (and most unfortunately) our children. Children as early as 5 years old are being placed on anti-depression medication and suicide watch. In fact, entire wings of hospitals are now dedicated to pediatric psychological evaluation. This is not something that’s rare, it’s running rampant and it’s destroying our children.

As parents, we must do what is necessary to safeguard our homes and lives from these attacks. If your child is fearful and full of anxiety, God can and is very much willing to intervene on their behalf. We must understand that the devil is mercy-less. He doesn’t care what age it takes to destroy a life, he has a vendetta against God and is willing for everyone to perish with him. YOU, yes YOU as a parent or guardian have an incredible role to play in your child’s life. You are the reflection of God to your child! How you deal with things, how you walk with the Lord, your attitude towards life and other people are all pointers that direct your child in the way they go.

Fear and anxiety is spiritual. We must never forget that every problem in life is first rooted in the spirit. Matthew 15:11 says “It’s not what goes into your mouth that defiles you; you are defiled by the words that come out of your mouth”. There’s a common misconception that a person’s outward problem is the problem but it’s not! The real issue at hand is that person’s heart. Matthew 12:35 tells us, “A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart.” The outbursts of anger and violence is merely the fruit of what’s on the inside.

Likewise, depression, fear and anxiety are all things that are produced from what’s within. That’s why it’s so important to feed your children SPIRITUAL FOOD. It’s the whole reason for The Mighty Series! In order for the outside to reflect good fruit, you must sow the seed of God’s Word in you and your child’s heart.

So what can you do?
The easy thing to do is get afraid. Resist that. Get it in your Word and seek God’s face for your child. Pray and pray in the spirit until you get the peace needed to address the situation. You’ve got this! It’s why you’re here! Then, begin a daily meeting where you STUDY the Word of God and pray for one another. Think this is too much? ITS NOT. It’s interesting how regimented people can be when a doctor prescribes a medication or time to meet (people even demand time off from work!) but when it comes to the things of The Spirit, anything goes! You MUST make this a priority. The more time spend in the Word the faster the resolve will come.

What scripture can I read?

Welcome To The Mighty Series Blog

We’ve created this blog as a resource for parents. Here you’ll find entries that will be sure to encourage, enable and assist you through the journey of parenting. We’ll have an array of guests that will write for this blog in order to get a full spectrum of life’s matters. There are too many issues families are facing that the church of Jesus Christ is not talking about. Here, there will be no stone unturned! We’ll be talking about fear, depression, suicidal thoughts, teen pregnancy, drug abuse and more! We must begin to understand what the Bible has to say about these topics instead of running to Web MD or some other secular resource to help us bring resolve. Bookmark this page and check back often. If you have a topic you would like for us to write about, please send your feedback to info@themightyseries.com. This generation doesn’t have to face the same challenges this world affords. We can rise up as Bible believing Christians and raise our children to be the men and women God has created them to be. But make no mistake about it, it starts in the home! It starts with you! Forget about what’s happened before today and make today the day you turn it all around for you and your family’s good! With love and loads of excitement, Adalis
