Spiritually Equipping the Next Generation

Our kids must know that God has a future, a hope, and plans of success for them (see Jer. 29:11). Equipped with that knowledge, they can be empowered to take risks, walk by faith, and declare this message of hope to others. Faith is enormous for every human being’s chance for success. Lack of faith is one of the biggest causes of failure in adults. I’m not talking about religion; I’m talking about faith.

Please don’t get the two confused. They are very different. There are thousands who are not religious, but have faith in whatever they are doing, and they have experienced huge success. And on the other hand, I have come across countless religious people who have no faith in what they are doing and are consequently filled with worry, doubt, and hopelessness and have no vision. This kind of attitude cannot be passed down to our kids.

They need to know how God speaks, that He uses at least five methods to speak to them and is not limited to any one method. He speaks individually, through creation, through other people, and through circumstances-and all can be tested through His Word. All they have to do is pray, and according to John 15:7, answers will be given.

God really does speak to our children. So they should ask; He will hear and answer. “My sheep listen to my voice…” (John 10:27). A child has the capacity to hear His voice. The Scripture doesn’t have a footnote that says sheep are only adults.

Our children have been taught to hear the voice of God through any means He desires to communicate and to seek His direction. We teach them to see situations that others would call “coincidences” as being confirmations from Heaven. For example, Roman asked for a guitar three years ago when he was 8. (He is the most persistent of all our children and the biggest salesman ever.)

“I want to play the guitar.”

“That’s awesome, Roman. Good for you, but Mommy is not buying a guitar!” He was very persistent with me, so I thought, he’s just picking an instrument because his older sister has a guitar and his older brother has drums.

He was tireless in asking for a guitar. Over and over, it was “Mom, when can I get a guitar?”

Well, after much persistence, I finally said, “Here’s the deal. I think you might want to ask your Father in Heaven because $200 is a lot to spend on a toy for an 8-year-old. So you might want to pray. If God really wants you to have a guitar, then you will have a guitar; either He will change my heart or a guitar will come from another place. You know Mommy hears from God, right?”

“Yes.”

“If God tells me to buy you a guitar, then I will buy one. So stop asking me and start asking the One who is your Provider. I am not your provider, God is.”
