We live in a confusing and changing world. With so much discord and unhappiness swirling around it can sometimes feel impossible to lead a truly Christian life. When our political and social leaders are making great missteps and failing to succeed as being an example of good Christian living, it is easy to get discouraged. Despair not though, as a Christian you need not look to those around you to feel God’s love or for a good example. Know that your Heavenly Father wants only the best for you as a Christian youth, and that He provides you with all that you will ever need to succeed.

” For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord . They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”

– Jeremiah 29:11

The times that Jesus Christ lived in were no less tumultuous than the times we live in now. Through his actions and great love for man, God showed the people of that time what it meant to be a Christian. God sacrificed his only begotten son, so that we would be able to love one another as God loves us and that we would fulfill his wishes by leading a good Christian life. The Christian youth of today is blessed with the opportunity to live in a time that you can do so much good in sharing God’s word. Know that you are blessed and have the power to help others by setting a good example of Christian living.

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

–Philippians 4:13

Living your life as a good Christian means accepting others even though they may be different. The Christian youth of today can make a radical and lasting difference in the world by living their lives as God would want; by leading by example and by demonstrating that a good Christian life is a full one. Family, friends and God’s word are the greatest gifts that one can ever share and are all the rewards that come from Christian living. We are so blessed to have God’s great love in our lives. How better to honor that love than to share it with others who may be living in darkness?

“Be strong and bold; have no fear or dread of them ,because it is the Lord your God who goes with you; he will not fail you or forsake you.”

– Deuteronomy 31:6

Armed with the great love of God, there is no obstacle that you cannot overcome. Being a Christian offers you so many opportunities to share God’s word and God’s love. Don’t be afraid to be overjoyed at the great gift you have as a Christian youth. Know that, no matter what trial you are facing, God’s love will see you through. Stick to your beliefs, and live your life as God has commanded and you will reap the rewards of a good Christian life. Even in your darkest hour your great faith and Christian living will light your soul and fill you with a great peace, knowing that you are never alone.

“The Lord will guide you continually”

–Isaiah 58:11

Christian Youth – God Understands You

October 26, 2009 by  
Filed under Christian Articles, Christian Youth

Christian youth, our God is a loving and merciful God. The things that you are going through may seem so much bigger than you, but God is bigger still. God understands everything about you. He understands what you are going through. God understands how you feel and He understands the things that are going on in your head. And God believes in you. He believes that you will fulfill all of the things that He has destined you to fulfill. God believes that you will overcome the obstacles in your life. These obstacles have been created in the world by sin. Sin broke unlimited man’s fellowship with God. Jesus gave that fellowship back to us and with it comes the ability to live victoriously. God has a plan for you to live victoriously and God believes that you will jump into the fullness of your destiny.

“The Lord will guide you continually.”

–Isaiah 58:11

Do not let people make you think that Christian living is “un-cool”, because it is not. God loves you and wants to have a close, intimate relationship with you. If you feel like no one else understands you and that know one else believes in you, then know that God understands you and He believes in you. He will never leave you or forsake you. God planned your destiny before you were even born. Your destiny is God’s successful plan for your life. God understands what you are going through and what you are feeling. He even understands how discouraged you can get. But, He gave you a way out of that discouragement. He has hope for you. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and He will direct your paths. Lean on God, call out to God and He will answer you. God loves you so much.

“Be strong and of good courage. Do not be afraid or dismayed”.

– 1 Chronicles 22:13

You are a Christian youth and that means that you have chosen to live for God, according to the Bible. You may not be able to do the things that you see other youth do, but God understands your feelings. He has given you the grace to be able to live for him. The Bible says that nothing can separate you from God’s love. No matter what you have done or where you have been, God will always accept you with his arms wide open. God understands. He wants to be your best friend. Gods love is unconditional. He will always love you no matter what you do. Go to God and tell Him that you love Him and ask Him to help you live for Him.

Know that God understands you. He understands your strengths and your flaws, and He has given you the strength to withstand temptation. No matter what you do God will always understand and love you. God made you. The Bible says that God formed you when in the womb and that he knew you even then. There is no one else who can love you more than God. Be encouraged and walk in the promises that God has for you. No matter what obstacles come your way: God believes in your ability to overcome and He loves you.

“Remember , I am with you always , to the end of the age”.

Matthew 28:20

“Blessed are those who trust in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord.”

–Jeremiah 17:7

God I Trust You

October 14, 2009 by  
Filed under Christian Devotionals

Reading for the day: Psalm 27:1-2

“The Lord is my light and my salvation—
so why should I be afraid?
The Lord is my fortress, protecting me from danger,
so why should I tremble?
When evil people come to devour me,
when my enemies and foes attack me,
they will stumble and fall.”

Trust is earned. We give those in our lives a chance to become close to us on a daily basis. At times, friends and family can hurt us deeply, breaking that trust. Repairing it can take a long time.

With God, you don’t have to worry about trust issues. He is going to be the same today as He was yesterday and as He will be until the end of time. Putting your trust in Him helps when people you love let you down even if it is not on purpose.

The world, itself, is not a friendly place. Maybe past hurts have caused you not to trust others, even those who prove trustworthy. The scriptures above teach us that no matter what happens, you don’t have to be afraid to live your life as God wants you to. He will champion your cause every time.

It is a fact that you will encounter difficulties in life. Some will be because of your own actions and others will be undeserved. There is no getting around the latter. But, God says that if you are under His protection, these “potential” difficulties don’t have to worry you or steal your joy.

Prayer Suggestion: Lord, teach me to place my trust in You to live my life in freedom and not fear of the unknown.

Every Problem Ends with God

October 12, 2009 by  
Filed under Christian Articles

The Bible tells us that God is the “Alpha and the Omega.” In Greek, those two letters represent the beginning and the ending of the alphabet. If life begins and ends with God, it stands to reason that there is nothing that has ever been or ever will be that escapes His knowledge.

Ostriches are interesting birds. They are thought to be flightless but can actually run fast and get a few inches off the ground. They also are the victims of a popular myth. It is believed that they bury their heads in the sand but actually they are tending to their nests.

God has also been the victim of many myths. For one, that He allows bad things to happen to people. It may seem that way to unbelievers, but actually God has given us free will to do as we please. It just so happens that there are a lot of people who don’t want to follow Him and would rather do evil.

Another myth is that God doesn’t care about our problems. Anyone who knows God for who He is knows that that this one is a load of hogwash. Our biggest problem was being eternally separated from Him and He made the ultimate sacrifice to solve it.

Problems are situations that we haven’t figured out yet. There was a cute saying on a bookmark once that read, “This is not a problem; it is an opportunity.” Anyone who has ever had a serious problem probably didn’t consider it an opportunity for anything but screaming.

There is some truth to this quote, though. For God, our problems are opportunities for His glory to become manifest in our lives. Your problem can be a window through which someone else sees God at work. For people who believe the myths about God, it is an eye-opening experience.

For your problems to become God’s teaching tool, you have to be on board with God. He has the capability to help anyone with a solution to their problem IF they would trust and give their lives to Him. Daily the Lord watches helplessly as people are crushed under the weight of their own turmoil and despair because they won’t ask for His help.

Don’t mistake God’s helplessness for weakness. We are the ones who are tying His hands. Denying God is like telling Him that you don’t want His divine assistance.

God did not create us to operate alone. Why do you think we have arms? They fit well when linked together. How about hands? Fingers intertwine to show love and concern. And, just look at those legs and feet. They work in tandem to carry us along side as many as will go with us.

When others don’t come to God on their own with their problems, He sends ambassadors. That’s us. Through your example, they will start asking questions: Why are you so highly favored?

One of the best things about God is that He loves all of us equally. Many people can say that but God really shows it. You can be just as highly favored as the next person when you put your trust in God. There is no need to handle those problems by yourself.

Satan is a magician. He makes us see what we want to see. But, his trickery leads not to happiness but to more, you guessed it…problems. God sheds the light at the end of the tunnel to let you know that life was not meant to be a tangled mass of never-ending dilemmas. No matter where you begin, if you end with Him, you will always have help dealing with your problems.

Additional Scriptures:

Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.”

-          Matthew 6:33

………

And he also said, “It is finished! I am the Alpha and the Omega—the Beginning and the End. To all who are thirsty I will give freely from the springs of the water of life. All who are victorious will inherit all these blessings, and I will be their God, and they will be my children.

-          Revelation 21:6-7

………

“For he will conceal me there when troubles come;
he will hide me in his sanctuary.
He will place me out of reach on a high rock.
Then I will hold my head high
above my enemies who surround me.
At his sanctuary I will offer sacrifices with shouts of joy,
singing and praising the Lord with music.”

-          Psalm 27:5-6
