The time of youth is not only one of making choices; it is also the time for laying foundation for every aspect of life. It is at this time that you lay the foundation for your career in life, your marriage and your destiny. In fact, everything that you will become in life is being founded now in the time of your youth.
It is a time of tremendous strength and energy, a time of freshness. It is the time all your nerves and instincts are seeking the strongest expression. The direction you ‘plough’ them now that you are young, determines the destination you will ‘reap’ in the years ahead.
This time of your youth is a very crucial time that determines what happens for the rest of one’s life.
The time of one’s youth is also the time of warfare.
This time is when you pitch your tent on whichever side you choose in the battle of life.
AND YOU EITHER CHOOSE GOD OR SATAN.
It is in this period of your life when you are called ‘the youth’ that you make that choice.
GOD is out, mercifully looking for you, so that you will make him your choice; but the devil is also fighting hard, to make sure he has you on his side. That is why the counsel of the word of God to anyone who is a youth is;
“So remember your creator in the days of your youth, before the difficult days come, and the years draw near when you will say, I have no pleasure in them”; ( Ecclesiastes 12:1 )
If you overcome in this battle now that you are young and make the Lord your choice, you will always overcome in every sphere of life.
