There is a great life to live
Remember your Creator in the days of your youth, before the days of trouble come and the years approach when you will say, “I find no pleasure in them” – Ecclesiastes 12:1
Life is the greatest gift from God. It is expected to be enjoyed and lived to the full. We only have one life and because of that, we need to do everything to make the best use of our life.
We need to take very good opportunity that comes our way and make to use it to our advantage. The time to be a youth is just one. Therefore, you must make the best use of your youthful days and enjoy it as much as you can. This is because as you become older adults you will have more responsibilities. What used to be your parents’ responsibilities will become your own to deal with. In these, life throw a lot of challenges on us.
So, how do we deal with the challenges; your personal crises, family issues and your education?
The preacher in Ecclesiastes states that “remember your creator in the days of your youth, before the days of trouble come and the years approach when you will say, ‘I find no pleasure in them’ before the sun and the light and the moon and the stars grow dark, and the clouds return after the rain, when the keepers of the house tremble” (Eccl. 12:1-3). The preacher is aware that there will be bad times for everyone in this life. In this statement he implies that we all need to prepare ourselves before any such difficult times. The preacher believes the best time to get ourselves prepared for any eventuality in our future is when we are youth.
What are you doing in preparation of both the good times and the bad time? The good news is that God himself is aware of this and has provided a solution for us. “Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us,set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come (2 Co 1:21–22).
Now that you are revived;
- Seek God in everything you do
- Trust that he is with you to make you excel
- Look for opportunities to serve.
What are the challenges you are going through and how are you dealing with it?
