God put this strongly on my heart and I shared it with our church Youth Class today –
God needs an army of youth today! Right now!
Seek God – ask Him to show you what you look like through His eyes.
He’s coming so soon! Only what’s done for God and His kingdom will matter.
It’s time to turn your world upside down!
What does your heart feel like? Does it feel dead? Is there any fire in it? A flicker?
David was a boy! A teenager!
- He loved God
- He had a desire to please God.
- He was willing to obey God!
No matter how weird… No matter how different he would look to everyone.
God used stones and a slingshot! Everyone expected the sword.
But NO! God takes the little, the impossible. So He can do a miracle! So there is NO doubt that it was God! So that only He would get the glory!
Mary was a young girl! A teenager!
Just a young girl…nothing special. Going about with her life. Planning her wedding…
- She loved God
- She had a desire to please Him
- She was willing to obey Him!
No matter how weird… No matter how different she would look to everyone.
God used the little, nothing special, to create a miracle!
God needs your limitations! He demands your inabilities! He called you because you were NOT worthy!”
He wants to show the world that HE can MAKE SOMETHING out of nothing!
If you are afraid, insecure, think you’re too young, not good enough, not spiritual enough, not worthy…
Then God wants to use YOU! He’s looking for YOU!
He needs the impossibilities so He can do miracles through them… Through YOU!
He will do a miracle in you and there will be no doubt it was God! Then only HE will get the glory!
You are here right now for such a time as this.
- Love God
- Desire to please Him
- Are willing to obey Him
That’s all you need for God to do a miracle in you and through you!
The Youth of America… The Youth of this world.
The enemy has them in a prison. A prison where there’s no light, no joy, no hope, and no peace.
They are like zombies going through life.
The enemy is working harder than ever on the children and youth of the world today.
Do you know why? Because he’s trying to destroy an entire generation!
Most of them don’t want to be there, but they don’t know how to escape.
That’s why God needs YOU! You know how to help them escape! You can show them!
Today, I encourage you to…
Put on the breastplate of righteousness!
Put on your feet the preparation of the gospel of peace!
Take the shield of faith!… It will quench ALL the fiery darts of the wicked!
Put on the Helmet of Salvation! And take the Sword of the Spirit! The word of God!
Take the whole armor of God so you can withstand in the evil day!
Decide today to enlist in God’s army!
He needs you!
One day we will see Jesus face to face and hear Him say, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant!”
