What Do We Say to the Kids Today?

REMNANTBy Lisa Cherry

By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family. By his faith he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness that comes by faith.  Hebrews 11:7

Our nation's electorate has spoken. And in many ways the collective voice demands our own personal response.

Are we prepared to help our children sort out the messages? Here our some quick thoughts.

1.  We must rejoice in the freedom we enjoyed in peaceful, free elections. Our leaders now need our honor and prayer.

2. We need to understand that "majority rules" does not mean that "minority voices" no longer have a voice.

3. Clearly, the majority of Americans did not choose to view this election with the moral, ethical, and spiritual standards that line up with Biblical standards
. That is a harsh reality that spills over to our personal lives.

4. We must be ready and equipped to stand firm in the Lord even amidst persecution and hardship.

5. Traditionally, hardship and persecution has grown the strength of the church....not destroyed it.

6. However, many will not choose to stand. This calls each of us into a time of personal decision making.

7. As our hearts look at our nation.......it is truly time to look at ourselves. Who and what do we serve? Convenience? Comfort? Money? Popularity? ....or the Lord?

8. Even as one generation has failed to make a stand, another generation will arise. Our sons and daughters are soon to take the reins. Will they be more or less equipped than their parents?

I am more committed than ever to doing my part to equip this remnant generation. I sense the Lord calling this simple blog to be a voice of light in a greater way in the coming season.

Together, we can see His Kingdom truths shine…even into a dark world trying to snuff out His Light.

Now we must pray. Now we must stand.

A few years ago the Lord impressed on my heart this simple directive......

Lisa, you are to train others to stand firm in difficult times

I recommit myself to that direction today.
