Generation Gap – Part 3; Talking Heart2Heart



I speak wisdom and knowledge upon the youth that they may walk in the calling God has ordained for the future leaders. Bridging the generation gap can only be done through the word of God.

So I pray that this generation of people direct their hearts and mind to the things of God because all other things are temporary. It’s important for this generation of youth to understand that parents, mentors, and elders want the best for them.

Wisdom is available to you, but you must realize that asking for advice or help is smarter and less painful than making a hasty decision. “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him” (James 1:5). “If you are proud, you will be destroyed. If you are proud, you will fall” (Proverbs 16:18). So young people save yourself from heartache and disappointment by accepting wisdom and knowledge from your elders or someone who has experienced life.

The elders worked hard to pave the way, so you can enjoy the luxuries in your generation. “And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee” (Genesis 17:7).

Some may say that experience is the best teacher, not true. Experience is definitely a teacher, but it’s not the best teacher. Why on Gods’ green earth would you risk your future by deciding upon impulse. Hasty decisions can affect your life for many years, and some times for a lifetime.

“Hear counsel, receive instruction, and accept correction, that you may be wise in the time to come” (Proverbs 19:20). Now, wisdom is a great teacher with years of graceful knowledge and experience. “Without consultation, plans are frustrated, but with many counselors they succeed” (Proverbs 15:14).

You can think of the advice as getting a head start in life without falling prey to the same choices as your forefathers or (foremothers) if that’s even a word. In other words, those who’ve  traveled down the road you are approaching can guide you around those pitfalls. “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prosper” (3 John 1:2).

This generation has a gold mind of opportunities before them, and I pray that God will remove the blinders from their eyes. He opened their understanding, that they might comprehend the Scriptures” (Luke 24:45).

God has a plan for your life, but you must follow His plan and not your plan. So the question of the day is “Will you accept the guidance that can prevent some of your repeated mishaps?
