The world just gets crazier every day! We think about the distractions, the division, and the turmoil we experience now, but our children and grandchildren will struggle even more….unless we do something about it! How can we prepare our children for when it comes time to defend their faith, their values, and what they stand for?
Proverbs 22:6 says to “train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” This is harder than we think when the world and Satan is fighting for their attention and corruption. Children are witnessing classmates who were once boys now becoming girls. They are bullied in the once-safe environments of the schools and hear foul language and insults in their face daily. Sexting, cyber bullying, and vulgar conversations are taking place within groups of friends. What once was a family gathering opportunity around the television has now become a battle against X-rated shows and children’s cartoons with sexual and LGBTQ explicit material.
Parents have to make a choice of whether to accept the terrible repercussions of their children becoming part of the world, or shield them from as much as they can and protect their hearts and minds. Why justify the changes of the world when you have a choice to stand against it??
Warriors for God is partnering with teenagers in areas across the country to help them defend their values. Young adults will have the opportunity to share the battles they face each day, then receive armor of facts, truth, and scripture so they can defend their faith and take a stand against the devil’s schemes. As warriors, we should not submit to the enemy! As warriors, we should not back down to justify the wrong as right!
Over the next few months, we will be sharing materials from this partnership so YOU can forward to parents and young adults who want to stand for God and His biblical values. Please pray for Warriors for God as we take a stand against the devil’s schemes. “The battle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” (Ephesians 6:12)
