A Word to the Older Generation

(Think 45+)

“By faith Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed, and she bore a child when she was past the age, because she judged Him faithful who had promised.” (Hebrews 11:11)
This message is for those who think they’re too old to “birth” something new. It’s for the ones who have had dreams in their hearts for years and decades and thought it would never come to pass after all this time, especially now that you’re older.
Your thought has been, “It’s too late. I’m not as young as I once was. This isn’t the time to take risks, but to have life be steady, comfortable, and familiar. I don’t have it in me to grow something from its infancy stages and nurture it to maturity.”
But…there’s still a longing in your heart, a desire that can’t be denied.
God is willing. His plans haven’t changed, and nothing is impossible for Him, even when it seems physically impossible for you.
He’s asking, “Will you believe Me for the seed planted within you to be brought to life and allow it to still be birthed through you, even in your latter years?”
Will you rest your faith in the One who made the promise to you and believe He’s faithful to fulfill His word to you?
Older mothers and fathers are NEEDED in this era. You bring wisdom and understanding only gained through years lived across times, seasons, and circumstances.
What you’re birthing is vital to this generation. Your example creates a legacy and an inheritance for younger generations. When they choose to tap into the understanding and wisdom you carry, they’re accelerated in the things God has called them to do. Mentor them. “Grow them up” by nurturing and growing what God births through you. Let them watch how you do it and invite them to partner with you in it. The work is worth it.
Like Sarah, receive His strength to conceive and birth the promise you’ve been waiting for and may have even given up on. Like Isaac, it’s going to bring such JOY!
