Title: The Spirit of Rehoboam
Author: Randy Tomko

God’s unending love pours out over all the generations. For those who are still young, it manifests in a heartfelt desire to guide and place on a right path towards a future bursting with Kingdom opportunity. That path includes the influence of other generations − their shared wisdom and experiences. That path also includes a critical juncture where you have to make a decision about whether or not you will follow the Lord and learn to walk in His ways.

Will you be a Rehoboam, trapped in a cycle of arrogance, or will you be a Josiah?

Josiah was eight years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem thirty-one years. He did what was right in the eyes of the Lord and followed the ways of his father David, not turning aside to the right or to the left.

2 Chronicles 34:1-2 (NIV)

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
