I am calling you to bring your testimony forward. You have wrestled with me in the fight, but you keep it to yourself. I say to you that it is time for the children to know the battle.
There are many around you who must in turn grow up and fight, who must inherit the ground that you are taking. They have to see you fight the battles. They have to know what I have done. They have to be told.
Pull them onto your knee and tell them your testimonies. Show them your wounds and declare my faithfulness. Set up memorial stones and answer the questions they ask.
Teach them to hear my voice; teach them to obey me. Let your walk with me be lived in front of them in a more open way so that they will remember your example when they are in your place.
I, the Lord, have placed children in your life and it is no small task. Feed them and train them while you have the opportunity.
Activation: Ask the Lord to show you who the children are in your life. They may not be young in years, but those who are younger than you in the faith need to hear your testimonies. Find a way to edify one of them today with your witness of what the Lord has done.
One day children were brought to Jesus in the hope that he would lay hands on them and pray over them. The disciples shooed them off. But Jesus intervened: “Let the children alone, don’t prevent them from coming to me. God’s kingdom is made up of people like these.”Matthew 19:13-15 (MSG)
