Dare To Be A Daniel!

One of my greatest concern about youths in my days is seeing them living a life without direction, focus, discipline and a sense of God's purpose for their lives. 
.
That you're gainfully employed doesn't mean you're living within the circumference of God's purpose for your life. However, it's so pathetic that many are now bowing to the gods others are serving due to their lack of knowledge.
.
Isn't it going to be a tragedy to have wasted your youthful life on the pursuit of vanities and you spend your old age in regret? Isn't it a wasted life to have lived on earth without affecting your generation positively? At least if you can't change the world, make a positive and eternal impression. 
.
My brief study of Daniel opened up my eyes to see what made Daniel standout among great men in his generation and if you would standout for God as a young man or woman, you must imbibe these qualities.
.
Daniel was from a royal family. He was a captive in Babylon. He had every opportunity to enjoy the pleasures of the land but he choose not to. He was made an eunuch. In spite of these, he purposed in his heart not to defile himself with the portion of the king's meat and the wine he drank.
.
Dare to be a Daniel! Choose to serve God even when everyone around you are serving the king's image (idol). Many promising youths are messing up their destinies as being slaves of: sexual immoralities and perversion, illegal means of making money, ungodly relationship, quest for power and fame and other youthful vices. 
.
How far you go in life and the effect of the impact you'd make in your generation is a function of whom you serve. Never dare to be like a celebrity. Don't be a replica of your mentor. Dare to be whom God wanted you to be.
.
Are you a lady and you felt you can't make impact in your world? Be an Esther! In spite of her predicament, she choose to remain sexually pure and obedient to her uncle's tutelage. With God's favor upon her life, she not only became a queen but she saved her generation from being massacred by their enemy. 
.
Don't open up your life to sexual degradation, the pursuit of vanities, abuse of fashion and cosmetics; be a woman of worth, a lady of virtue. Don't pursue those things that would reduce your destiny to a piece of bread. Determine to affect your generation for God and for good! 
.
However, the first thing you need to do to be a positive agent in your generation is to discover God's purpose for your life. These would make you see yourself the way God sees you. You're not here for pleasure, you're here for a purpose and that purpose is to live for God. 
.
Is there anything preventing you from becoming all that God wanted you to be? 
.
I decree that every yoke of lust, addiction, masturbation, pornography, inordinate affection, the pursuit of vanities and pleasure over your life is broken in Jesus name. Anyone that has been placed under the bondage of any evil family pattern, cycle of failure or that your life is an Ichabod; I declare freedom and total restoration in the mighty name of Jesus. 
.
Be liberated from every form of ignorance holding you back from moving forward in the mighty name of Jesus. You are free from every form of demonic oppression, depression, condemnation or possession in Jesus mighty name I pray!
