This is the last post in this two part series I have been doing.
Last week I spoke to the seasoned people and if you want to know what “seasoned” means I encourage you to go back and read last weeks post.
Last week I talked about how we really don’t have an expiry date. In fact the only expiry date we have is when we die. Everything before that is open season.
I also talked about how God can you use anyone no matter how young or old you are. Don’t let your age limit you.
Today I want to talk to the young people.
God wants to use you and He doesn’t care how old you are. This is the time to ignite that fire for him. It’s time to pursue Him with all that you have. Look at what happened to the boy with the few fish and loaves. Jesus used that little boy and look at David, Jonathan, Mary and so many other young people.
Even though there is a lot to do at school and life make sure you are putting God first.
Get rid of the distractions that can so easily hinder you from achieving what God has called you to do.
Parents, make sure you are speaking to your little ones about the great plans God has for them. Make sure they grow up knowing that they are not a cog in a huge machine but that God created them on a purpose to do amazing things. Teach them that God can use them at the age they are now.
Proverbs 22 verse 6 says,
Direct your children onto the right path and when they are older, they will not leave it.” NLT
As I close I want to say one more thing to the seasoned readers.
Last week I spoke about how Caleb went to Joshua and asked for his mountain at the age of 85 years of age. Age was just a number to him. But there is something else in that story I want to show you.
“Now the people of Judah approached Joshua at Gilgal, amd Caleb son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite said to him.”
Joshua 14: 6 NIV
I will stop there. When Caleb went before Joshua to ask for his mountain, he didn’t go alone. He went the rest of the tribe of Judah. He managed to pass on his faith to the people he was leading. They too had faith and that is why they went with Caleb.
We all have something to pass on to the next generation. The experiences you have gone through and the lessons you have learned are for a reason. God has put so much in you. Not just to use to accomplish what He has called you to do but to pass on to, to the next generation. There is a whole generation that needs mentors, that need men and women of God to love on them and show them the way. Will you be that person to step up to the plate?
As I end remember that God can use anyone no matter how young or seasoned they are.
Don’t let your age limit you.
Bless you friends
