It is not enough to know the generation you belong to; you must also labour to discover what you are to do in your generation. Today, there are many people in different positions that could do something wonderful about the programme of God for their nation, their church and for their generation but they are still hesitating. When God places a man in a certain generation, He expects him to rise up and glorify Him in that generation. Lots of times, we wish we belonged to a different generation that God didn’t place us in. David was a good example for us in the bible, according to Acts 13:36. “For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell on sleep, and was laid unto his fathers, and saw corruption.”
Whatever purpose, anointing or measure is upon you, God will demand that you serve His will in your own generation. God will not accept excuses. Joseph found himself in a terrible generation in Egypt yet he served the will of God. David served the will of God in his own generation. You must serve the will of God in your generation. People sometimes say that it was easier to live for God and serve His will in the days of Moses or Peter; that is not so. God is working within each generation to prepare men to live gloriously and fulfil His purpose in their generation, including you.
PRAYER: Lord, prepare me to do Your highest will in my generation in Jesus’ name.
