Message of hope to the youth

Today marks a one of the most significant days in the history of South Africa as we commemorate and honour  the fallen heroes and  the youth of 1976 and the battle they fought for the freedoms and rights we have today.  The youth today has rights and opportunities more than previous generations however the youth in this generation is also faced with many challenges that are different yet  almost equally hard to solve as generations before. The situations  require the same tenacity and resilience of the youth of 1976 and better yet that of David in the bible when he slayed Goliath with a sling shot. ( 1 Samuel 17:1-58)

The challenges we face not only need a good government in the country but God himself, which is why most of the social challenges we face need to be addressed on a personal basis with each case being different and more complex than the other  , you name them, the list is endless. With all that's facing us as the youth , it is very easy to become despondent and drown in despair but don't allow yourself to fall into that trap, there is a lot you can do to change your situation.

We are the Davids of this generation and we have our place in history  as Goliath slayers.  Just as God enabled David to slay Goliath He can and is willing to enable you to slay the Goliath in your life. Whatever situation you are faced with right now is your Goliath , and just like David people may compare the magnitude and stature of the situation and conclude that there is no way you can conquer it but God says you can and because He says so that mean you can and you will because He will enable you .

Romans 8:37 NKJV " Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us".

Be blessed.
