Not Too Young

Your being young is an opportunity, so use it wisely because you won't be young forever.

"O Sovereign Lord," I said, "I can't speak for you! I'm too young!" (Jer 1:6 NLT) If there's any quality God is looking for in a man, if there's any prerequisite to God using a man as a vessel unto honor, age isn't one of them. No! The best time to serve God is now that you are young. (See Eccl 12;1)

I've never seen it in the Bible written that God didn't use a man because he was too young. I'll cite two biblical examples;

1. Samuel; So the Lord called a third time, and once more, Samuel got up and went to Eli. "Here I am. Did you call me?" Then Eli realized it was the Lord who was calling the boy. (1 Sam 3:8 NLT)

My emphasis is on the word "boy." You can imagine his age when God gave him such a mighty message. He didn't mind his age; he was mindful of his availability.

2. Joash; Joash was seven years old when he became king. (2 Kings 11:21 NLT)

What about David? He was seventeen when he killed the giant Goliath. What about our contemporary leaders today? Most of them started very young. God is seeking people who love him, fear him, and are yielded (flexible) in his hands. You also need to keep advancing in knowledge and understanding.

Are you young and passionate about God? Then you are the one God is looking for! Start from your local assembly, be faithful in that little duty, and you are right on your way to the top.
