When I was young, I used to think that I am less better than older people because of my lack of experience . But the below passage from the Bible gave me a clearer view of how younger people are to respond to life situations. I also have my insights there and hope it will help you too.
1 Timothy 4:12 (NIV) ☀️
Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.
The argument is not without merit that wisdom comes with age. But the Bible doesn’t say that we have to wait for a certain age just to do what God is telling us to do as believers. For me, as long as you truly understand His words as God’s children, then that’s it. You have to do what you have to do as a Christian. Because Wisdom comes from God and it is also because of His Mercy that you are actually able to see these truths in His Words.
Therefore, the moment you are able to understand His Words, all you have to do is to be thankful to God for revealing Himself and worship Him by presenting yourself holy and acceptable in His sight.
Our confidence should be in the Lord!
Our Hope should be in His Words! …For He, Who promised is faithful. … For He Who began a good work in us will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
And, we will all stand before the judgment seat of Christ, to Whom we must give account.
So, do not be discouraged my younger sisters. Do not focus on your age and what you think people thought of you but rather focus your eyes on Jesus and seek to obey Him, leading by example to other believers for God’s Glory.
Remember that He is the Source of all good gifts. He invited us to ask Him for wisdom so that we will also be able to answer everyone about the hope that is in us.
And as Christians, we have every reason in the world to look to God, and not man. So, do not worry, but by prayer with thanksgiving, present to our Good Father all your cares and surely, He will give you peace that passes all understanding that will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus our Lord.
He is Worthy! He will not withhold good things to those who walk uprightly.
And finally, let us learn from these words from the Apostle Paul,
Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ. (Galatians 1:10)
