SINGLE AND USEFUL

Dear Reader,

Happy new month to you! In this great month, you will be honoured! Every child of God is fashioned a useful vessel and usefulness begins from your youth; while you are still strong, sound and effective. Your teenage and youthful years are the prime time of life when all you see ahead and all that bubbles within you is life.

Teenage years are a very precious gift, which others wish they could recall. However, God has given you this privilege to be aware of the blessings of this season of your life so you could utilize it. God has placed certain gifts in you that can be enhanced during these years, for greater exploit that you would benefit from. That is why He said:

Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them; (Ecclesiastes 12:1)

The truth is God has put in you, unique deposit to enhance your usefulness while single. These include but are not limited to:

Unusual Strength: Young people are synonymous with strength and the younger you are; the stronger you are supposed to be. The Bible says: …I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one (1 John 2:14). Your physical energy is at its best in the days of your youth. With this unusual strength, pursuit of your vision is easier and you will be most useful because God expects you to channel this unusual strength positively and correctly.

But what are the positive things to channel your strength on?

  • Service to God and His Kingdom. The house of God/your local church should be your second home. Just as you will naturally discharge your responsibilities at home, you should be more responsible in church by serving diligently. Find a place where your strength can be channeled and rightly utilised. Many opportunities abound in the choir, ushering unit and sanitation group etc. You must understand that your service in Church is solely to your benefit as whatever strength used up is multiplied to you with other rewards (Psalms 84:7).

Invest your teenage days to serve the Lord wholeheartedly; make impact in Church and edify the body of Christ. When you make God first in service, He makes you a first class citizen on the earth (Matthew 6:33).

  • Into Making Impact in the society. You need to make positive contributions and this begins with your immediate environment. Use your gifts and calling to the benefit of those around you.

The truth is: Every child of God is ordained to live a life that counts. You are redeemed to be a positive influence to the world. It is written concerning you: Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid (Matthew 5:13-14).

Many years ago, my husband was deployed to a village to teach. When he got there, he noticed there was no Church in that village. With determination, he saw to it that a Church was built and established there before he left. While leaving, he was given a parting gift of a bush lantern with the prayer that the light he showed to that village be spread around the world.  You too can do likewise and much better.

  • Great and Innovative Ideas. We are in the days of great inventions and innovation among youths and singles. It is written: And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: (Joel 2:28)

As Godly teenagers that possess the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2:16), you can think and add values in diverse areas or disciplines of life. Your worth and value in life determines your usefulness. By seeing yourself the way God sees you, you will be able to add colour to your world and generation at large.

However, being useful and achieving great things begins with salvation. You need to be born again if you must make the most out of life. Being born again means accepting Jesus as Lord and Saviour of your life.

If you have not done this or the happenings in your life show a withdrawal from your decision to make Jesus number one in your life, you should say this prayer in faith.

Dear Lord Jesus, I come to You today. I believe You died and rose again for my sake. Forgive me of my sins, take over my life, make me Your child and let Your peace reign over my life. Thank you for saving me.  Now I know I am born again!

Congratulations, you are now born again! I believe that you will begin to experience the reality of the price that Jesus paid for your sins at Calvary. All-round rest and peace are guaranteed you, in Jesus’ Name!  Call or write, and share your testimonies with me through contact@faithoyedepo.org and pstfaithoyedepo@gmail.com, OR call 07026385437 and 08141320204.
