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!,
