Saul replied, “You are not able to go out against this Philistine and fight him; you are only a young man, and he has been a warrior from his youth.”1 Samuel 17:33 NIV
David, a young shepherd boy had a victorious mind. He had an ‘I can’ mentality. He knew that God has empowered him previously, and the same God will fight for him against the mighty Goliath. Saul and even his brothers discouraged him. But Mdeza knew that he has it in him to defeat this great man. Being determined to conquer will render you victorious. Through Christ Who strengthens us, as young as you are, you are a Conqueror. Be determined. Pick up your five stones. Trust in the name that’s above all other names.
Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity.1 Timothy 4:12 NIV
Being young and serving God isn’t something to be ashamed of. You are serving your purpose. While ensuring that your conduct is clean, pure, and holy, teach other young people as well. Be a good example to your peers. Make Christianity fashionable. But make sure that you don’t conform to the standards of the world. Remain rooted in the Word, don’t let any of your achievements get to your head. Always glorify God because He is the giver of all gifts.
You are a new creation, embrace your newness. Let God lead your life. Let Christ be at the centre of your heart.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!2 Corinthians 5:17 NIV
Wishing you all a blessed #Quarantine Youthday
let us pray
Lord, we plead protection for the youth of today. Father protect the young ladies and girls against gender-based violence. Bring sense Lord into the hearts and minds of our brothers to end all these cruel and brutal attacks on their sisters. Lord, may they all be pure and holy. May their conduct please You Father. In the Mighty name of Jesus. Amen
