    dear Postor, thanks for these great vision for teenagers.
    Biblical , revelation show these. we therefore need to understand the Biblical will of God concerning creation to enable our leaders to draw pragmatic policies to enhance the will of God.
    we therefore need God in the world governance system to deal with these challenges.
    World governance reforms is the key. As the prophetic direction of prophet zephaniah brought about a lot of reforms . Prophet JOEL also repeated that.

    thank you pastor Rick.

    Pastor Rick: my 14 yr old granddaughter has Cystic Fibrosis and has difficulty accepting that she was not an ” accident of birth”. How do I help her accept her illness without harboring resentment towards God? It is difficult for her to understand that she was created in His image with a genetic disorder that will shorten her life. Thank you for your counsel. A loving grandmother

      Hi Jeanmarie,
      Clearly, I am not Pastor Rick.. but I would like to try to speak some life into your granddaughter’s situation. She may not realise it, but she is a beacon of hope to those around her. People easily get lost in their own circumstances. Most often, those circumstances are not as big as they think. Your granddaughter is a reminder that if someone with actual problems can have a high quality of life, what are we complaining for? That in itself is ministry when used to direct the focus back to God. She has the ability to spread joy like wildfire. And as for a shorter lifespan, we all dread death. And being left behind when a loved one dies is the worst. I seriously dread the day one of my loved ones will pass. I wish I could say I will handle it well but I doubt I will be so graceful. We need to remember though that this is not home. Your granddaughter has been given a gift; she gets to go home early. A gift that we may not exactly understand. But there is no suffering, no tears, no pain where she will go. It will be far greater than this life could ever be. Your granddaughter was created with high purpose. I don’t know if this was helpful at all. I hope it was able to put things into perspective at least a little bit. I surely don’t have all the answers. But I read your comment and my heart went out to you. Praying for you and your granddaughter.

        Thank you, Christie, for your wisdom and prayers. Yes, I know that Gid has created Emma for a higher purpose than we are able to appreciate with her Cystic Fibrosis. This disease requires that she be physically isolated from others with the disease due to cross contamination of germs and that is why she feels so alone and ostracized. Her time on earth will be fleeting in comparison to eternity with her Heavenly Father in a new body, free from suffering. Our human pain at the loss of a loved one, surely is tempered by that fact. I just pray that she will grow closer in her relationship with Jesus and cling to Him as she tries to find her own special journey. I pray that she will come to believe rhat she is the precious child of the Most High God and that He loves her unconditionally, CF and all! And I pray for my daughter and myself that we would be able to release Emma to the care of the Almighty One, for He loved her first and forever. May the Holy Spirit guide and protect Emma as she comes to a place of acceptance of her illness and allows God to use her to give hope to others. In Jesus’ name I pray.
