'AGE THIRTY'

"David was thirty years old when he begin to reign and he reigned forty years" - 2 Sam. 5:4
.
There are crucial points in the life of every man. The time he was born, the time he begins to live the life God wanted him to live and the time he finished the race that was set before him.
.
It's often said a fool at forty is a fool forever. But the truth of the matter is that a man's failure to discover the life he's meant to be living before thirty makes him a fool at forty if he did not discover it.
.
If there's any age in your life that you need to take seriously, it is when you're at the verge of reaching 30 years old or before it. You must have discovered your purpose and be on course to attain its fulfillment.
.
Despite the struggles Joseph had, at age 30, he appeared before Pharaoh and was made a prime minister (Genesis 41:46. His dream came to fulfillment at 30.
.
David too, despite his many battles as of the time he was first anointed as king, he didn't ascend the throne until he was thirty (2 Sam. 5:4).
.
There's something crucial about the age of thirty which both man and woman must take seriously.
.
Are you close to thirty years of age? Do all you can to discover the kind of life God wanted you to live. Jesus began His earthly ministry at age 30 (Luke 3:23) and he finished it well.
.
It is not the number of years you live that matters in life, it is the kind of impact you make with the years you lived that matters.
.
If you won't be a fool at 40, you must know why God created you before 30. Age thirty should commence your fulfillment of God's purpose for your life and not a time to live recklessly.
.
Don't waste your life on vanities or on the pleasures of life that are destructive. Beyond career and other ambitions, know God's blueprint for your life.
.
Discover it prayerfully and be determined to fulfill it so that you don't live a wasted life.
