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 Has Been Waiting On You

How does it feel when someone is waiting on you? If you are running late, you probably feel guilty about it. If it is somewhere that you don’t want to go, you may run late on purpose. But, what if God was the one waiting on you?

It’s true that God waits for us all of our lives. What is He waiting for? He is looking for His children to come back home. And, indeed, we are His children. He knew us when we were still in the womb and our own parents didn’t know who we were.

The reason God is waiting goes all the way back to the Garden of Eden. Adam and Eve had everything that their Lord had to offer and they turned their backs for one thing that they didn’t have (and really didn’t need). And today, we are still following in those ancient footsteps.

After Eden, the world was plunged into sin. Every person born was born into an unholy world. There was no way to bridge the chasm. God spoke directly to several people to accomplish His goals. But, we were still separated and it pained our Father.

But, God had a plan. He sent His only son, Jesus, into the world to be our bridge over that chasm of sin. Now, think about the gravity of His decision. Children are a part of us from the beginning. They are our life. You’d probably rather lose a limb or life itself than let your children die.

That is the length and depth and height of God’s love for us. Even His child was not spared to bring us back into relationship with Him. Jesus was born into this sinful world like the rest of us. He ate, drank, slept and had friends.

In His adult life, the three-year ministry began. Jesus knew hunger, hatred, love, pain and every other emotion we feel every day. Still, He knew that His reward would be great in heaven when He fulfilled the Father’s plan.

The very ground opened up when Jesus died. For the first time, those who hated Jesus realized who He truly was. Why does it take the ground shaking beneath some of our feet to get us to recognize God?

God stands ready to accept us back into His loving arms. The sacrifice was made once for all and the reward Jesus received as a child of the King awaits us too. Some church fans display a picture of the Savior standing at a closed door knocking. The door is the one that opens to your heart.

Some of our hearts are so hardened that nothing can get in. On the inside, there is hurt and anger barring the door. At that point, the only one who can breach the heart is Jesus.

Jesus is not a myth used to separate you from your money and possessions by television preachers. The Savior is real and if you don’t have true peace of mind in your life, then He is still standing at the door waiting on you to open it.

But, God is patient. That is how love works. When your kids go astray, you don’t cut them off like a weed in the garden. You wait tearfully, prayerfully and hopefully for them to come back to you.

Don’t be misinformed. God is tearful when we slap His helping hand away. It gets slapped away when you brick up your heart. It is slapped away when you refuse to hear the Word of God. It gets slapped whenever you give someone else the glory that belongs to Him.

God wants to shelter you in His arms. Accepting Him now means living in safety and love on this side of heaven. But He can’t do so unless you let Him in. And so, He waits for your answer until the time that you take your last breath.

God sent Jesus as a ransom to buy your freedom. Won’t you stop living in bondage to the world and accept that you can be free in Christ?

Additional Scriptures:

“Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends.”

-          Revelation 3:20

………..

Seek the Lord while you can find him.
Call on him now while he is near.
Let the wicked change their ways
and banish the very thought of doing wrong.
Let them turn to the Lord that he may have mercy on them.
Yes, turn to our God, for he will forgive generously.

-          Isaiah 55: 6-7
