WHERE ARE YOU.

I write this with a heavy heart looking at what has occupied our today youths. Many are lost in the entanglement of the world, fashion, wealth, swags and sexual activities have taken many great destinies away from fulfilling destiny. Is this great power (anointing) for the old generation alone?
.
No it is not. What you occupy yourself with has caused a separation between you and the power. Regardless of your age, you are able to place your life in the hands of God and allow Him to work. God is doing, and will do, a great work in this world. He chooses to use people of all ages to accomplish His purposes. How wonderful it would be to allow Him to use us to accomplish great things for Him in our days.
.
Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity. 1 Tim.4:12. Let’s break it down:
.
Speech: Are you using your words wisely to build others up and point them to God or are you tempted to bring people down with your words? What about foolish jesting, foul languages, backbiting, killing others with word and so on? God needs you to tame your tongue and use it to glorify Him and bring people to Him, He has empower you to use your speech to deliver many but you are not allowing it.
.
Conduct: Are you seeking to live a Christ-like life, and align your actions with God's expectations? What areas of your conduct do you need to work on, dressing, etiquettes, respect, humility, character etc? The power to do exploits for God is not for you to be proud but to be humble and serve as an example to others in Christendom and outside.
.
Love: How much of love do you have for others? Is your own love about sexual activities? God has called you to love in a godly way and not to be wrapped in sex. Sex like I do say remains a great weapon in the hands of devil to destroy great destinies. Who are your friends, what do you watch or read, these things play back to your memory when you’re alone and mostly push you into immorality, watch out.
.
Faith: Are you trusting deeply in the promises of God for your life, or are you trusting in money, beauty, success or fame to make you happy? God needs your faith to grow deeper in your relationship with Him.
.
Purity: Is your life characterized by purity or do you struggle to control your desires? Is your erection or emotion the dictator of your life? What about what you think of?
.
It doesn't matter about your age, what really matters is your heart and your actions. If you're a young person seeking to serve God, then go for it! But when you do, make sure your life is an example to others, and that you are seeking to live for Christ and not for selfish ambition, if you know in your heart that you have some big things to work on, ask God to help you become the sort of person He wants you to be and work hard on becoming more like Jesus. He counts on you to deliver many and fulfil destiny, where are you?
.
I'll conclude with this song: "You can get it if you want, you don't have to eat the crumbs from the Lord, this time is for you, God says you are special, you can get what you want (God's power) if you want. Father let me not eat crumbs but be filled with your power as of old, fill me Lord".
