Youth, Find Strength in God

There is an inherent weakness in being young. The prophetess, Ellen G. White, in the book Messages to Young Peoples explains that:

The youth of today will be likely to meet skeptics and infidels…those who doubt the truth of God’s Word will place these infidel productions in the hands of the young and inexperienced to fill their hearts with the poisonous atmosphere of doubt.” (85)

After the death of king Solomon, the wisest man on earth, his son Rehoboam becomes king. Yet, instead of heading to the counsel of the old wise men, Rehoboam, “[takes] counsel with the young men that were brought up with him” (2 Chronicles 10:8, KJV). Ultimately, Rehoboam only rules one tribe of Israel, out of the twelve his father governed.

Let us put our faith and strength in God. Especially as youth living in these perilous times, we can only rely on the firm foundation of Jesus Christ. Let us heed the wise man’s counsel: “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, KJV).

Amen.
