Christian youth God has a plan , purpose and bright future for you. God knows your name and He sees your incredible value. God loves YOU !
Do you sometimes wonder what your purpose is in life? As a Christian youth, you may especially worry about your future and the direction of your life. But even when it seems like nothing is clear and that you exist only to exist, God is working you into His grand design. God loves each of us, and He has a plan, a purpose, and a bright future for even the least of us.
A Plan For You
Ever heard the saying, “Everything happens for a reason?” It’s true; everything that happens in our lives works to shape who we are and who we will be. God knows how we will turn out, and even when life seems scary and unstable, we can find peace in the fact that it’s all part of His perfect timing. The good things help to encourage us, and the bad things help us to strengthen our faith. Your life may be completely different in ten years; it may change direction, or shape. But the past is all part of God’s beautiful plan for you.
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
-Romans 8:28 (NIV)
A Purpose For You
Despite what science may say, you are not just a bunch of particles floating around in space. You are not an accident, nor are you a mistake. You were specially made by God to fulfill a unique role on this planet. Don’t ever think that you don’t have purpose, because God gave you the power to impact lives for the better. He set you on this Earth to praise him and to encourage others in your own way. No matter what your circumstances are, God will find a way to work through you and help you find the purpose He has given you.
“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”
-Psalm 139:14 (NIV)
A Bright Future For You
Life is full of surprises, and sometimes your current situation can be daunting. It can be hard to look forward to a bright future when everything in your past and present is dark. But you must be patient, as you have many years stretching before you, and God’s timing cannot coexist with yours. If you want something now, the chances are that God will make you wait for your own good. He has a vision for all of us, and even before we were born, He knew who we are going to be and what we are supposed to do. So if nothing seems to be going right, just remember that one day all of it will have helped create your bright future in God’s timing.
““For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.””
-Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
God gave us all purpose and a bright future so that we can be part of His awesome plan. We have reason to live because God needs us in His kingdom to praise Him and spread the good news to everyone we meet. Don’t let dark times break you down, for God uses them to make you stronger. Jesus was tempted too, and He went through bad times, especially at the cross. But He endured through it all, and so we should aspire to be like Him and focus on the purpose God has given us.
