THE CHRISTIAN YOUTH: This microwave generation

Pastor Tinashe Zinyemba

This is called the microwave generation, simply because everything is INSTANT. For example we have instant noodles, tea bags; you can go and buy a meal and it will be ready in no more than ten minutes.

In the years gone by we had to write letters to communicate and it would take weeks and sometimes months for information to reach someone, now with cellphones and the emails, we can communicate instantly.

One can easily travel around the world by flying yet our ancestors had to rely on walking. Why am I saying all of this? Well because everything is so instant these days that many Christians struggle with what James said in James 1:4 (“But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing”). That’s pretty tough to do when all your friends and peers seem to be having it easy. They have the latest gadgets, they live a care free life and it seems like there are no consequences for their actions. Yet you, a believer, seem to bear the brunt of being the “good guy” or the “principled girl”.

The apostle Paul said in Galatians 6:9 (“And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart”). Now I know you’ve heard that before, but trust me it’s true, keep doing what you know is right and you will reap the rewards of your actions soon.

I am encouraging you to walk in a faith, even though you cannot see the fruit of your actions. Something inside of you pushes you to do so even though you cannot explain it. Your destiny is far greater than what you are currently going through. So keep at it, you can’t see your tomorrow but your actions today are actually setting you up for the biggest pay day ever or your worst nightmare.

Faith is SUBSTANCE and EVIDENCE of the UNSEEN that you believe according to Hebrews 11:1. I know that you know that there is more to you and your life than meets the eye and every day the way you have been living and going about your business shows that you are a person of FAITH (I know it gets tough sometimes).

David faced a similar situation, I’m sure he knew there was more to his life but he didn’t know exactly what it was until a prophet came unexpectedly and told him (1Sam 16). Between 1 Samuel 16 and 2 Samuel 5, David goes through a torrid time. He is betrayed, slandered by the King and is a wanted man in Israel, he has a huge bunch of unemployed societal rejects gather around him; he had to train, feed and take care of them. All of his possessions (including wives and children) were at one time stolen from him . . . life was asking him questions he could not answer.

I’m sure you can relate to some of what he faced when all you are doing is trying to live right for God and somehow things aren’t coming together. David knew he had a word on his life and that God would not let that word fail. In 2 Samuel 5, David’s word finally comes to pass and he is anointed king over Israel.

But that is not the purpose of this article. I have said all of this to let you know that this is your breakthrough season. So long as you continue to exhibit the substance of your belief, like David you will also say Baal-perazim (Lord of the Breakthrough – The Lord has broken forth) as God begins to fulfill His word concerning you. All I need you to know is that God is watching His word over your life. He just happens to be into the business of answering prayers and fulfilling dreams. This is YOUR BREAKTHROUGH SEASON!!!Yes that’s right, YOUR BREAKTHROUGH SEASON.

As you keep believing and walking according to the principles of the Word of God, your destiny is being defined and while you are doing what you do today, your God is working for you where you can’t work and going where you can’t go.

Keep believing and keep walking, this your season, and I just know that you are the next biggest news. The next testimony will be about how your situation was turned around. God bless you and keep the faith.
