To the Microwave, Instant Pot, and Air Fryer Generation,
How wonderful are these appliances?! For the weary, working parents-it’s a lifesaver! To the single man, just looking for a quick meal-it’s a God send! To the hungry college student-it’s gourmet feast! Not many can deny that these creations are amazing.
We mustn’t not confuse a microwave oven with a microwave Father. It’s quite easy to do, unfortunately. Our microwave generation has translated to a phone and vehicles and computers. With the snap of our fingers, we can have the information, the connection, and the meal we desire.
Our Father does not move with the snap of our fingers-He moves with the rate of our faith. The Lord, our God isn’t instant (unless He wants to be…). The Father isn’t a genie and is not magic.
Our generation has to learn how to long-suffer, to continuously pray, and to remain thankful. This stance isn’t to obtain what we want but to draw closer to the One who wove us in our mother’s wombs.
We must be careful not to adopt the microwave mindset while serving the Lord. We need a slow cooker perspective. The more we pray, the more we fast, the more we wait-the Father will show Himself faithful.
To this generation of convenience-your prayers are not in vain, your tears are not missed, and your heart’s cry is heard. You will get the victory and the Lord will get the glory!
Keep cooking-the best is yet to come!
Peace and Blessings
