• I John 2:14 - I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one.
Friend you are strong enough to take it,
Strong enough to make it,
Strong enough to find it,
Strong enough to lead it,
Strong enough to handle it.
Strong enough to pull through it.
THERE IS STRENGTH TO DO GOOD:
What bed will you lay on when you’re older? Are you making your bed now? What good foundation are you laying? Now there is strength to do all the good in the world. Strength to refrain from anger, strength to keep quiet even when you can say a lot, strength to help another in time of need, strength to flee youthful lust and pleasures. Where is your strength for good deeds?
THERE IS STRENGTH IN ADVERSITY:
If you fail in times of adversity, your strength is small. How do you stand in adversity? Troubles will come, mountains will roar, terror will gather, but now, this time, there is strength to cope in the face of adversity. How big is your strength?
THERE IS ENERGY FOR WORK AND ACTION:
When you are young, you have so much energy to go around. Energy to lift. Energy to fight, energy t run, energy to lead.
It is easier to do all the work now, easier to use your legs to get to the place of your dreams now, it is easier to run faster and get there earlier in the days of your youth.
What are you spending your energy on? What are you loosing strength on? What is taking the cost of you time?
Now is the right time to take stock of your energy and time. Has it been worth it?
PASSION IS WILD AND STRONG
Now there’s so much passion in you. So much excitement, you can feel the passion from the touch of someone, you can experience the passion when you pursue a dream relentlessly.
The idea you possess cannot go beyond the level of passion you have for it. How passionate you are about something always determines how long it lasts.
So if not now when, now is te time to allow your passion for good drive your legs to fulfilling purpose.
STRENGTH TO BE AN EXAMPLE:
Example in truth, example in conduct. There’s a responsibility divinely placed, to lead people to see the light and to help them be a better version. What kind of example have you been? Who have you been leading?
THERE IS A CORRESPONDING STRENGTH FOR EVERY DESIRE AND DREAM
Truthfully it’s never too late to fulfil a dream but we will all agree that the earlier the better. Because sometimes dreams gathered at old age may not be fully attained due to frailness and weakness. But now for every dream, there is a corresponding strength. For every desire, there is a strong mind putting forces together to make it work.
THERE IS STRENGTH TO LEAD THE CAUSE FOR A CHANGE OR PATTERN:
The strength of the youth is great enough to channel a cause and see it through. Many youths undermine the glory in their strength. A strength that can achieve great things has been divinely placed in the body. So now you can get up and say this is what I stand for and mobilise people to stand with you for the same purpose. Accepting the glory of your strength is accepting the divine leadership position that God has placed upon you.
