Scripture: Isaiah 44:5
Isaiah 44:5 says, “One will say, ‘I am the Lord’s’; Another will call himself by the name of Jacob; Another will write with his hand, ‘The Lord’s,’ And name himself by the name of Israel.” Imagine young people who come into a relationship with you who start to declare this. Imagine the blessing of watching them flower, come alive and become energized, grow and developmentally jump forward! Verse five says there is a day coming when kids will boldly identify with God and they will identify with the God we represent. They will come to us and say, “I want what you have!” And we will give it to them and watch them flourish in front of us. That is something to look for and expect.
