I spent quite a few hours over the past few days praying about the sons and daughters in my life. I’m starting to realize that there are many people who are depending on me for love, affirmation, vision, strength, and protection. Even though I’m still too young for this, my paradigm has fully shifted-I’m investing the rest of my life for the incoming generations!
I want so badly, to give my children and grandchildren generation the perfect chance at a beautiful future! I want to build a far more Christian society. I want to give them a financial inheritance and a stable economy. I want to build a peaceful world-as much as this is possible in a fallen civilization, prior to the return of Christ. I want to give them the truth that was handed down from many generations of church fathers.
Dear God, make me a model Christian, a model husband, a model father, a model minister, and a model enthusiast of LIFE! I want to work hard for the sons and daughter of my legacy. Show me how to raise them up with high character and morality… show me how to train them in the advanced ways of Your Holy Spirit… show me how to refine their raw talents until they are the most influential and fruitful generation of Christians the world has ever known!
The only thing I want from them in return, is love… and a commitment to flourish with my inheritance.
The prophet Malachi spoke of the end times when he said, “Look, I am sending you the prophet Elijah before the great and dreadful day of the Lord arrives. His preaching will turn the hearts of fathers to their children, and the hearts of children to their fathers. Otherwise I will come and strike the land with a curse.” (Malachi 4:5-6 NLT)
This is my prayer, that God will turn up the fire on this prophecy and let it spread throughout the world today!
Here’s a great song for the moment, Jason Upton, Father to the Fatherless.
Just like every morning, I prayed for you with tremendous passion. I sincerely hope you feel the difference all day long.
Have a great day everyone!
With much love…
Dream Big, Live Bold, and Make the Difference!
