A youth’s life is characterized by issues and challenges that can either strangulate his vision or broaden and help him to realize it depending on how he is able to take it. In today’s article, the Lord who wants to see you achieve your utmost desire would want you to know that with Him, you can make it despite all odds (cons. Jeremiah 29:11). Now, what are these odds?
Odds, according to a good dictionary, are those things and situations that make it seem impossible for one to do or achieve something. It means actually that there must be a definite purpose, vision or target one is determined to achieve or reach which circumstances, challenges, forces or even human beings are contending or militating against. So, do you have a purpose to achieve spiritually, academically, professionally, vocationally, etc? Is your vision/desire just to be in church and have no remarkable change in your life? Are you making do with being born again only? Do you have any aspiration towards perfection, growing in grace and possessing spiritual fruits and gifts? (Cons. Luke 13:6-7; Jeremiah 8:20; Hebrew 6:1; 2 Peter. 1:5-9; 3:18). Is there any move to excel above your equals in your chosen field (Daniel 1:17-20)? Some young people live for NOTHING, some live for ANYTHING, but youths of purpose live for SOMETHING (cons. Matthew. 25:14-18). Surely, you must have a target which you are pursuing.
