Our decisions as young people is actually the  summary of the outcome of our lives. We all live to become what and whom we decides to become as free moral agency. 

Decision making as far as the matter of Destiny is concerned is not convenient. We just have to decide as we approach lives termini, hence the need for adequate preparations through valid information and it's application in our lives. 

Prior to any decisions a man can make is his resolute determination to embrace and maintain a cordial relationship with His maker, through Jesus who in summary is the Destiny maker (jer. 29:11).

Marital decisions has been an issue of concern today as it was in the beginning (Gen2:18. )" it's not good for a man to be alone ". God therefore has been committed to establishing this Union in all generations that's accountable to Him. 

Our marital decisions matters to God as our faith in Him. His desire  is to raise through us godly seeds in the order of the SEED that bruise the head of that ancient serpent. 

The following wisdom is therefore required of us .....

1. Due consultation must be carried out prov. 3:5-7.

2. sensuality should be conquered Rom 8:8.

3. Adequate knowledge of God's mandate for your lives is helpful tips. 

4. Times and seasons of our lives must be studied and watched as per God's dealing in our lives. 


Thousands upon thousands lies confused in 

"The Valley Of Decision ". It takes only the wisdom of God to make decisions that will matter in time and in Eternity. 

Shallom.

Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest!
Life is a burden without rest, hence the needs to be relieved of our various burdens.Often times we mistake circumstances around us as burdens, but the truth of the matter remains that most of the unfavourable situations around us are prompted and orchestrated by a burden of Sin . This of all the time past and present remains the Mother of all other burdens. Looking at your situations which you may have given divers nomenclature can only amount to distraction and lost of focus. IF YOU DEAL WITH SIN YOU HAVE DEALT WITH EVERY OTHER CHALLENGES!
HOW do we deal with sin ? This actually is the need for a burden bearer. For the fact that the burden of Sin cannot be thrown away just like that AND THAT IT CANNOT BE BORNE BY HUMAN you really need some one like a Savior at your aid. Therefore it takes deliberate actions of dropping off and conscious casting of burden upon Jesus Christ to be free from sin.


"The sword of the Lord, and of Gideon." 
Judges 7:20

Gideon ordered his men to do two things: covering up a torch in an earthen pitcher, he bade them, at an appointed signal, break the pitcher and let the light shine, and then sound with the trumpet, crying, "The sword of the Lord, and of Gideon! the sword of the Lord, and of Gideon!" This is precisely what all Christians must do. First, you must shine; break the pitcher which conceals your light; throw aside the bushel which has been hiding your candle, and shine. Let your light shine before men; let your good works be such, that when men look upon you, they shall know that you have been with Jesus. Then there must be the sound, the blowing of the trumpet. There must be active exertions for the ingathering of sinners by proclaiming Christ crucified. Take the gospel to them; carry it to their door; put it in their way; do not suffer them to escape it; blow the trumpet right against their ears. Remember that the true war-cry of the Church is Gideon's watchword, "The sword of the Lord, and of Gideon!" God must do it, it is his own work. But we are not to be idle; instrumentality is to be used-"The sword of the Lord, and of Gideon!" If we only cry, "The sword of the Lord!" we shall be guilty of an idle presumption; and if we shout, "The sword of Gideon!" alone, we shall manifest idolatrous reliance on an arm of flesh: we must blend the two in practical harmony, "The sword of the Lord, and of Gideon!" We can do nothing of ourselves, but we can do everything by the help of our God; let us, therefore, in his name determine to go out personally and serve with our flaming torch of holy example, and with our trumpet tones of earnest declaration and testimony, and God shall be with us, and Midian shall be put to confusion, and the Lord of hosts shall reign for ever and ever. 

THE HOLYSPIRIT IS THE END OF OUR LABOUR AND STRUGGLE!

MEET HIM AND YOU'LL BE GLAD YOU DID.......

1 O spread the tidings ’round, wherever man is found,
Wherever human hearts and human woes abound.
Let every Christian tongue proclaim the joyful sound:
The Comforter has come!


Refrain:
The Comforter has come! The Comforter has come!
The Holy Ghost from heav’n, the Father’s promise
giv’n,
O spread the tidings ’round, wherever man is found:
The Comforter has come!

2 The long, long night is past; the morning breaks at
last;
And hushed the dreadful wail and fury of the blast,
As o’er the golden hills the day advances fast!
The Comforter has come! [Refrain]

3 Lo, the great King of kings, with healing in His wings,
To every captive soul a full deliv'rance brings;
And thro' the vacant cells the song of triumph rings;
The Comforter has come! [Refrain]

4 O boundless love divine! How shall this tongue of mine
To wond’ring mortals tell the matchless grace divine -
That I, a child of hell, should in His image shine?
The Comforter has come! [Refrain]
God throughout the historical time has ever sought for a MAN and not MEN. Ezekiel 22:30.
This search is deliberate and serious if we look at it from His points of view. God is a God of focus, serious minded and passionate about whom He can trust His divine Ageda. He would not want this trust to be traded cheaply with any other seeming reality of life!

He is therefore in search of a man through whom He can pour the drops of His blessing if he must bless men.
GOD IS LOOKING FOR A MAN OF SINGLE-HEARTED DEVOTION, DEDICATION, FAITHFUL MEN AND WOMEN WHOSE SOUL IS SOLD TO NOTHING BUT HIM! Only with these category can God work through to ensure our generation is filled with His presence as the water cover the sea.
DEUT . 6:20-25
20 “When your son asks you in time to come, ‘What is the meaning of the testimonies and the statutes and the rules that the Lord our God has commanded you?’ 21 then you shall say to your son, ‘We were Pharaoh's slaves in Egypt. And the
Lord brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand.
22 And the Lord showed signs and wonders, great and grievous, against Egypt and against Pharaoh and all his household, before our eyes.
23 And he brought us out from there, that he might bring us in and give us the land that he swore to give to our fathers. 24 And the Lord commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear the Lord our God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as we are this day. 25
And it will be righteousness for us, if we are careful to do all this commandment before the
Lord our God, as he has commanded us.’


Having no story to tell about the Lord's working in our lives is an indication that nothing actually is taking place in us. As far as growth is concerned, We should all come to a point we can tell people I was once a child but I'm grown. 

We were once babes in the kingdom, but Can be a little bit entrusted some talents now. EVERY CHRISTIAN MUST HAVE A TRACK RECORD OF HOW THE LORD HELP HIM  TO ATTAIN MATURITY STATE.

TNX. 

Our relationship with God cannot be sweet until we experience a union with God!
This particular union can be seen as a conjugal encounter with the Holy spirit of God via an unbroken communion!
Our journey with God in the face dangers and trial is meant to be sweet. This sweetness cannot come until we discover the unspeakable underlying benefits of seeking Him daily!
The more of contact with Him the more of His Joy and love that fill our souls. These culminate the sweetness we get in Him.
May the sweet fellowship of the spirit be with us all! (amen).

This is so so inspiring:
Malachi 3:3 says: 'He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver.'
This verse puzzled some women in a Bible study and they wondered what this statement meant about the character and nature of God.
One of the women offered to find out the process of refining silver and get back to the group at their next Bible Study.
That week, the woman called a silversmith and made an appointment to watch him at work. She didn't mention anything about the reason for her interest beyond her curiosity about the process of refining Silver.
As she watched the silversmith, he held a piece of silver over the fire and let it heat up. He explained that in refining silver, one needed to hold the silver in the middle of the fire where the flames were hottest as to bur
n away all the impurities.
The woman thought about God holding us in such a hot spot; then she thought again about the verse that says: 'He sits as a refiner and purifier of silver'. She asked the silversmith if it was true that he had to sit there in front of the fire the whole time the silver was being refined.
The man answered that yes, he not only had to sit there holding the silver, but he had to keep his eyes on the silver the entire time it was in the fire. If the silver was left a moment too long in the flames, it would be destroyed.
The woman was silent for a moment. Then she asked the silversmith, 'How do you know when the silver is fully refined?'
He smiled at her and answered,'Oh, that's easy --"when I see my image in it!!!'
If today you are feeling the heat of the fire, remember that God has His eye on you and will keep watching you until He sees His image in you!
Pass this good news on right now. This very moment, someone needs to know that God is watching over them.
And, whatever they're going through, they'll be a better person in the end because HE will not leave them in the situation for too long to be destroyed by the fires of this world..

Verse
"Son of man, What is the vine tree more than any tree, or than a branch which is among the trees of the forest?"
— eze 15:2
Thought
These words are for the humbling of God's people; they are called God's vine, but what are they by nature more than others? They, by God's goodness, have become fruitful, having been planted in a good soil; the Lord hath trained them upon the walls of the sanctuary, and they bring forth fruit to his glory; but what are they without their God? What are they without the continual influence of the Spirit, begetting fruitfulness in them? O believer, learn to reject pride, seeing that thou hast no ground for it. Whatever thou art, thou hast nothing to make thee proud. The more thou hast, the more thou art in debt to God; and thou shouldst not be proud of that which renders thee a debtor. Consider thine origin; look back to what thou wast. Consider what thou wouldst have been but for divine grace. Look upon thyself as thou art now. Doth not thy conscience reproach thee? Do not thy thousand wanderings stand before thee, and tell thee that thou art unworthy to be called his son? And if he hath made thee anything, art thou not taught thereby that it is grace which hath made thee to differ? Great believer, thou wouldst have been a great sinner if God had not made thee to differ. O thou who art valiant for truth, thou wouldst have been as valiant for error if grace had not laid hold upon thee. Therefore, be not proud, though thou hast a large estate-a wide domain of grace, thou hadst not once a single thing to call thine own except thy sin and misery. Oh! strange infatuation, that thou, who hast borrowed everything, shouldst think of exalting thyself; a poor dependent pensioner upon the bounty of thy Saviour, one who hath a life which dies without fresh streams of life from Jesus, and yet proud! Fie on thee, O silly heart!
"Men ought always to pray."—Luke 18:1.
F men ought always to pray and not to faint, much more Christian men. Jesus has sent His church into the world on the same errand upon which He Himself came, and this mission includes intercession. What if I say that the church is the world's priest? Creation is dumb, but the church is to find a mouth for it. It is the church's high privilege to pray with acceptance. The door of grace is always open for her petitions, and they never return empty-handed. The veil was rent for her, the blood was sprinkled upon the altar for her, God constantly invites her to ask what she wills. Will she refuse the privilege which angels might envy her? Is she not the bride of Christ? May she not go in unto her King at every hour? Shall she allow the precious privilege to be unused? The church always has need for prayer. There are always some in her midst who are declining, or falling into open sin. There are lambs to be prayed for, that they may be carried in Christ's bosom? the strong, lest they grow presumptuous; and the weak, lest they become despairing. If we kept up prayer-meetings four-and-twenty hours in the day, all the days in the year, we might never be without a special subject for supplication. Are we ever without the sick and the poor, the afflicted and the wavering? Are we ever without those who seek the conversion of relatives, the reclaiming of back-sliders, or the salvation of the depraved? Nay, with congregations constantly gathering, with ministers always preaching, with millions of sinners lying dead in trespasses and sins; in a country over which the darkness of Romanism is certainly descending; in a world full of idols, cruelties, devilries, if the church doth not pray, how shall she excuse her base neglect of the commission of her loving Lord? Let the church be constant in supplication, let every private believer cast his mite of prayer into the treasury.
