The battle for the young: First of all I would like to explain who a young man or woman is; and why is it so important for us to attend to the issues of life at the young age.
Life is a battlefield; life is a mystery and it takes an Extraordinary man to understand the issues of life.
The Young age is a time of planning & preparation, a time where priorities are kept Isaiah 28:10
“For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little: – “ & Principles followed with maximum attention.
God is so much interested with your age and the young people ( Youth ). 1 John 2:1-14 explains His interest for the Little Children & The Youth. Vs 13-14 say ” the young me have overcome the wicked one”
To overcome this wicked one We Need To Fight. Not the physical battle, ” we wrestle not against flesh nor blood”; but the spiritual battle. For we know the spiritual controls the physical.
The Young age is a time of Visions and Prophesies for the future. According to Joel 2:28 ” Sons & Daughters shall Prophecy, now watch this: ; and- Young People Shall See Vi, and the Old shall Dream Dreams.” The old are dreaming dreams of their life’s activity( their young age) because they are above the age of strength.
What is Dream and what is a Vision.
Dreams could be as a result of your daily activity. Scientists can define Dreams but not Visions.
Vision is not about the past or activities of previous times. It’s all about the Future. Also Prophesy. A Prophesy that talks about the past is no Prophesy. In the school of Heaven, you will work for everything you have. There are no Double Promotions. It’s important to see the vision of your life now.
Your Vision and Destiny determines the Decisions you are making now and the kind of life you intend living in future.
Life is not magic; there are no Short-Cut: if you decide to take a Short-Cut you will be Cut-Short.
The battles of life will confront you; adversity will surely come sooner or later, proverbs 24:10 say
If you Faint in the day Of Adversity; Your strength is weak!!
meaning adversity will definitely come.
But your preparation will determine your approach towards that day. You will either encourage yourself in The Lord like David or you will blame God like Job!!!!
26 It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.
27 It is good for a man that he bear the yoke in his youth.
Bear your burden in your youth; when you still have strength to pray and fast, when you are not thinking about your own family. The burden is all way round, both Educational; Social; life on its own is stressful, but if you Plan Now; You are Planing Well, and you will Enjoy the Fruits of your Labour in Future. The opposite is the case for those who do not Plan Now. ” They are Planing to Fail.”
Biblical Definition Of Battle:
Job 14:1; Job 5:6-7; Job 7:1; Proverbs 24:10.
Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble. -Job 14:1
This is the simplest definition. The Bible is too accurate to tell lies. Problems are everywhere. The earlier you begin to address the issues of life the better for you.
Job 5:6-7. Trouble cannot be thrown aside. It must be dealt with and not swept aside.
How do I fight my battles? Blindly or Wisely. I must be as wise as a serpent and harmless as a dove
David fought his battles earlier before even meeting Goliath.
Daniel and the three Hebrew boys: Daniel 3:14-25; Joseph, Gen 37. They all fought their battles at their young age.
The glory you will get on your day of reckoning or recognition is the last blow to the battle you had fought or have been fighting. In your wilderness journey, understand every way and path you are taking because you will still come back to those paths and you will help others come out of theirs.
People who did not Fight their Battles at their Young Age:
Moses did not deal with his battle at his young age, (Anger) it followed him up to his old age and appeared at the Peak of his breakthrough; when he stroked the rock instead of speaking to it. That was what stopped him from entering into the promise land. Deut 3:23-28.
Jacob did not deal with the issues he had with Esau, he kept it for 20 years. Then Esau was ONE MAN, twenty years later Esau had 400 MEN with him. Gen 32:6.
Job issues began when he was already old and he was busy blaming God; instead of attacking the devil.
In conclusion; We should make good use of our youthful age, and avoid everything that will jeopardize our future.
We should put God first in everything we do and our action should reflect Christ.
We need to commit our lives and plans to God; because whatever is committed to God’s care, He is Oblige to Protect that thing and He will surely Do.
We have to let Him guide us on how to address the issues and matters of our lives.
And pray earnestly for His leading and direction in every step we take; just like Moses and Joshua did.
