The Cry Of The Youth - Part 1

All over the world, the youth are the most dynamic facet of every society, economy or government. However, the most dynamic force of the world is the most marginalized or the most unfortunate.

Why is this so? Why are the youth struggling more than ever? Is it because parents have not trained them enough? Is it because parents have not imparted vision and purpose in their lives. Is it because parents have not harnessed their potential? There could be a thousand or more reasons.
The Youth Have A Cry

The Youth have a cry, a cry that has fueled so many things we term as violence, so many things we term as useless. One thing am sure of, is that it is not just the governments problem, it is all our problem, this is because we are all parents, whether in a government position or not, we are all a part of a community who see these children grow, we see them go astray and we say nothing, we see them give up and get frustrated, we see them live for nothing and we tell them they are useless. We are either in the bracket of younger youth, adults or the elderly but we are all to play a part even the youth themselves.

Different Perspective

I choose to look at change in a different perspective.

  1. The youth need a new voice, a voice of encouragement, a voice of hope, a voice of belief, a voice attaching value and importance to them. They need a voice telling them that they are not just the future but the present future and that they need to be prepared now more than ever for every opportunity that might present itself because when preparation meets opportunity success is a must. 
  2. The Youth need to be told that they are the greatest resource a nation can have. They need to be told that their life is not a mistake, that a resource cannot be looked at as a burden but instead they are an opportunity in itself to the nation. An opportunity that will flow like a river of life.
  3. The Youth need to be told that they need a mindset change, that they need to view themselves from the point of am created by God for a purpose, from a point of value, they need to view themselves from the point of hope, that they need to view themselves as the warriors who cannot be beaten down by temporary challenges of this life because indeed as it has always been said there is no permanent situation and that tough times don't last but tough, skilled, empowered, learned and humble people do.
  4. The Youth need to be told they can make it and that nothing is too hard to achieve, they need to be reminded of great young men, who rallied with their vision and did not look back but made it to the end. They need to be told that nothing is impossible, just like Nelson Mandela said, "It always seems impossible until it is done".
  5. The youth need a new found form of inspiration, Inspiration from God, Inspiration from those who will choose to love them and not castigate them but still discipline in love. They still need the love of a father, a mother, a brother, a sister, an aunt, an uncle, the neighbor, the police, the doctors, the care takers, the government officials, the taxi drivers, and every other person who comes a across their path.
  6. The youth need the elders even though they aren't closely related to embrace them as their own. Someone might not be directly related but you can be a father, a role model, a destiny carrier. The embrace needed is an embrace of unending love, peace, joy. An embrace telling them we need you and can't do without you. An embrace telling them, "We are better off working on the same team and not competing", An embrace telling them, "I am here to teach you, you can have confidence and learn from me". An embrace telling them,"I will not manipulate you, I will not use you but love you". And an embrace telling them, "I will empower you to empower others".
  7. The youth need to be Impacted, Empowered and Transformed, this could happen by instilling the culture of reading, teaching and most importantly those guiding them to live and lead by example.

The Youth need.....

Step Up and Rise Up in the moment

Step Up and Rise Up in the moment

See beyond what you can see
See beyond failure and dumbness that someone is imposing on you.
See beyond hopelessness
See beyond your past
See beyond whether you can or can't do

See God take you through it all

You are not less than what you ought to be,
Your smart, Intelligent, Wise.

What are you doing still crying?
The world needs you,You are a Blessing, 
You are the most important thing at a time like this, 
You can make it, 
You can be successful.

All you need to know is that you can rest in the confidence that God will reign and work through you.

As  God moves his arms yours move,
As God thinks so you think, 
As God speaks so you speak, 
As God works so you work, 

You might just need a re-charge because your potential is just lying dormant. 

Step Up and Rise Up in the moment, there won't be any other.

Activating the power of God in your life (the 5 P's)

From A friends Sermon (Joshua Kakaire Kibedi) on 06/08/2014 at Church of the Reusrrection Bugolobi, Church of Uganda

" speech and my message were not in plausible words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, so that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men but in the power of God." 1 Cor 2:4-5 (ESV) -- Our faith needs to be founded on the evidence of the power of God! WE each need an experience uniques to us that is able to spur us on!

1. Purpose: What is my place and position in God's grand plan. How do I see myself in God? Power has purpose -- (a) You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you.... and you will be my witnesses (Acts 1:8); (b) You shall remember the Lord your God for it is He who gives you power to make wealth...that he may confirm his covenant that he swore to your fathers, as it is this day. (Deut 8:18); and (c) Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us,.... to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen. (Eph 3:20).... we see in all this manifestation of power, that there is always purpose!

2. Perception: It is amazing that; our generation knows so much about God, but does not know God so much... "You are in error because you do not know the scriptures nor the power of God" (Matt 22:29) -- it is evident in our casual approach to the throne of grace and extremely familiar approach to God almighty!-- "For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse." (Rom 1:20) -- What is your perception of God?... Do you recognise His majesty and splendour? When was the last time you really bowed in reverence to God?

3. Priority: We have to inevitably remain in Jesus Christ as a matter of priority; without whom we can do nothing! "Seek ye FIRST.... the Kingdom of God and His righteousness.... (Matt 6:33)--- and indeed, unless our righteousness exceeds that of the pharisees; we will by no means see the Kingdom of God! God must take first place in all you pursue... His will needs no competition!

4. Purity: God is holy! Holiness is His highest attribute. Our love for Him should therefore drive us to be holy as He is holy! "Blessed are the pure in spirit, for they will see God" (Matt 5:8)-- this seeing God is not in the life to come... but experiencing the manifestation of His power in this life! "So flee youthful passions and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart." (2 Tim 2:22)

5. Patience: Always remember that it is God who is in control. We all receive delegated control! We work neither on our terms nor in our own time -- it is all about God! "For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise." (Heb 10:36)

Therefore --"He that believeth in me, the works I do, shall he do also; and greater works that these shall he do; because I go to my father.... and whatsoever you shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the father may be glorified in the son. If you ask anything in my name; I will do it" (John 14:12-14) -- wrap it all in consistent, sincere prayer, motivated by love. Prayer is for lovers only (P-FLO) --- and always remember "Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours." Mark 11:24 --- like Reinhard Bonkhe says "FAITH is the power switch!"

Note: Prayer, purity and patience is the pathway to power and revival.

For Every Woman Living & Working To Make A Difference

#Women Making A Difference

"Every Naomi needs a Ruth to Cling to her and Every Ruth needs a Naomi to look up to" - Arthur Kmo

A woman is a woman made by God
A woman so divine, yes she is
A woman so wise, yes she is
A woman so strong, yes she is
A woman so pure, yes she is

Every woman knows she is from God and she lives to bring him glory.
She knows her Identity and #Can't compare herself to anyone

Without a woman, there is no child, women are the incubators for both the girl and boy child
Without a woman, there is no help
Without a woman, there are no generation

A woman is the exact representation of the working of the Holy Spirit
A woman is the exact representation of Modesty, Beauty, Class and Elegance
She Believes God, Walks in Faith and Operates in Power
Her Body is the Lord's Body

In every woman, there is Beauty
In every woman, there is Wisdom
In every woman, there is Intelligence
In every woman, there is Purpose
In every woman, there is a Wife
In every woman, there is a Mother
#Every woman is the Pride of her Home, City and Nation

On the Head of every woman,
There is a crown of  Glory and Honor, they are Jewels and Pearls to behold
On the Lips of every woman
There are words of wisdom to build families, societies, cities, nations and to proclaim the goodness of God
On the Heart of every woman
There is a passion to be after God's heart and to do his will and worship God.
In the Womb of every woman
There are nations, there is potential beyond what human minds can perceive to be fruitful.
On the Mind of every woman
There is the mind of God to do exceptional things and do greater exploits.
On the Feet of every woman
There is dominion to possess and subdue the earth with the message of the Kingdom.
On the Hands of every woman
There is skill to make heavenly garments, to make heavenly homes, businesses and to raise children in the way of God, She's not satisfied, there is more to fulfill.
Every woman has love
The love of God that draws Children, Men, Leaders to them and such Love heals nations and heals broken hearts.

The Eyes of every woman are the eyes of God
Nothing can be hidden, eyes to see beyond the depth of the heart and cloud of the mind, to provide insight, Vision and Purpose to make a difference.

The ears of every woman hear the voice of God
The ears of every woman hear the sound of heaven
The ears of every woman hear what the Spirit speaks to the churches.

Every woman is Noble in Character
Every woman has a Call
Every woman has a Vision
Every woman has a Purpose
And Every woman is the the Difference that will make a Difference

"Women should stick and cling to each other, women should work with each other, love each other, women should be wise, prepare and always carry something along and study the word - when you walk together, you will accomplish much and do greater exploits" - Arthur Kmo
