TEXT: Judges 6:13
But sir,” Gideon replied, “if the Lord is with us, why has all this happened to us? Where are all his wonders that our fathers told us about when they said, ‘Did not the Lord bring us up out of Egypt?’ But now the Lord has abandoned us and put us into the hand of Midian.
This is an encouraging word for the youths of this nation who have been part of this failed system without a word of apology from the generations who have seen the” wonders of the Lord”.
Some of the past generations were picked from their parents’ farms and given full scholarships.
In retrospect, if the present system were to be what they had in their days, most of these leading professors will not even have secondary school leaving certificate.
The increasing rate of atrocities among the youths can be greatly accounted for by the failure of the generation that saw the” wonders of the lord” but kept not some manna as memorial in the ark.
Then, taking tea in the cafeteria of a university was free; you only needed pay for food. Then, every graduate has a job ready for them before finishing but today even masters degree is of little or no value again.
It is an inexplicable wonder to see the promised wind of change being led by a man in his 70s and who has ruled and overtly failed many times.
Where are the able bodies with well trained committed mind and renewed spirit? It is to their shame if they have no one to hand over to.
Some have positioned their children who were chiefly raised through a special environment to continue their evil work but God is taking the throne of the leadership of this nation from the hands of oppressors and wasters.
Those who have oppressed this nation in the past will be hewers of wood and drawers of water in the coming era because God is raising men by Himself for this nation.
If Joshua fails to produce a leader, God will surely raise a Samson.
Now a call to you. Arise from your slumber. Don’t accept to be what the system has made out of you. Some have lost sense of timing because nothing ever works has scheduled.
Strikes have become the order of the day.Very dangerous programming has taken place. Cunning tendencies have been developed has a coping ,surviving mechanism in the current system. You must choose to be different because there will be a new day!
The Lord shall raise every youth that has been a victim of this failed system. We pray that revelations that birth responsibility will shine upon their hearts. Amen
