Then said I: “Ah, Lord God! Behold, I cannot speak, for I am a youth.” But the Lord said to me: “Do not say, ‘I am a youth,’ For you shall go to all to whom I send you, And whatever I command you, you shall speak." Jeremiah 1:6-7 (NKJV)
Youthfulness is not an excuse to get out of doing the Lord’s work. God will use us all if we ask for His will to be done in our lives and we are obedient to His will. What a blessing to know that no matter our age, God values us and will use us. Your youthfulness is powerful in God’s eyes. He wants to send you out into the world to speak life into dark places, and as you speak life, the light of Christ will be increased in those places. Embrace and take advantage of your youth. You are God’s masterpiece. Young or old, big or small, you can change the world for Christ. Your youth is a tool that can be used by the maker’s hands. Today pray for boldness and to use your youth to advance the gospel for Jesus Christ.
