Brethren, the Lord deserve much more than our praise this new week I know you will agree with me. Even if not for any other reason for the live He has given us to have seen the 30th week of 52 weeks in the year 2016. I say that He is highly lifted above every other in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen. The reason that has kept us till this day shall progressively continue to be working for our good in Jesus name. Amen. I say a happy new week 30 to you brethren in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
This new week brethren we are going to focus on the youth in our communities, family, church and nation as a whole. The youth is said to be the strength and future of every family, community, church and any nation, this was either assumed or ascertained because of the physical power and strength the youth tend the have possessed. Therefore brethren we are going to treat this topic: “YOUTH, YOUR VISION CAN SPEAK IF...” The scripture has identified lots of personality in the youth and many other admonitions to the youth so that they can have a very successful future that will speak nations. I pray that the Lord will make youth youthful age speak in your generation and generation next in Jesus name.
“Give them these instructions and these teachings. Do not let anyone look down on you because you are young, but be an example for the believers in your speech, your conduct, your love, faith, and purity. Until I come, give your time and effort to the public reading of the Scriptures and to preaching and teaching. Do not neglect the spiritual gift that is in you, which was given to you when the prophets spoke and the elders laid their hands on you. Practice these things and devote yourself to them, in order that your progress may be seen by all. Watch yourself and watch your teaching. Keep on doing these things, because if you do, you will save both yourself and those who hear you.” 1 Timothy 4:11-16 (GNB)
Timothy here was a youth pastor trained by Apostle Paul to take care of the church in Ephesus. The church in Ephesus was a growing church then and lots of teachers and prophets are emerging with series of doctrine to be taught. Paul is therefore charging Timothy to focus on the teaching he has received from him and that he needs to be outstanding so the vision of God for him can really speak in the future. He should not allow anyone to look done on him as a youth pastor; rather he should be steadfast in his physical and spiritual obligation he has received from God. By this doing the Apostle Paul who happens to be his Apostolic Father and mentor said there shall be a obvious progress in his life endeavours.
Brethren you can also have not just good progress and success in life but a very good progress and very good success in life if you never allow the situation around you make a shame of you or look down on you. Ensure your life is speaking in good characters and godly behaviour is your hobbies. Then you have just set a great foundation of your vision ready to speak to your immediate generations and generations next. Amen. I pray this morning for you that anyone standing to look down on your destiny and by that standing as a blockage to your vision to be heard shall be taken out of your way in Jesus name. Amen. I decree your vision as a youth will not die but will speak and be heard by this generation and generation next in Jesus name. Amen. Good morning and happy new week ahead in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
Prophet Johnson Oluwagbenga Adeniyi.
