The young mans prayer

The young man’s prayer

‘O satisfy us early with thy mercy; 
that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.’
 Psalm 90:14

Suggested Further Reading:
 Ecclesiastes 11:6–12:7

They who love Jesus Christ early, have the best hope of enjoying the happiest days as Christians. 
They will have the most service, and the service of God is pure delight. 

Their youthful vigour will enable them to do more than those who enlist when they are old and decrepit. 
The joy of the Lord is our strength; and on the other hand,
 to use our strength for God is a fountain of joy. 

Young man, if you give fifty years of service unto God, 
surely you shall rejoice all your days. 
The earlier we are converted, having the longer time to study in Christ’s college, 
the more profound shall be our knowledge of him.

 We shall have more time for communion, more years for fellowship. We shall have more seasons to prove the power of prayer, and more opportunities to test the fidelity of God than we should if we came late. 

Those who come late are blessed by being helped to learn so much, but those that come in early shall surely outstrip them. Let me be young, like John, that I may have years of loving service, 
and like him may have much of intimate acquaintance with my Lord. 

Surely those who are converted early may reckon upon more joy, because they never will have to contend with and to mourn over what later converts must know. 

Your bones are not broken, you can run without weariness, 
you have not fallen as some have done, you can walk without fainting. 

Often the grey-headed man who is converted at sixty or seventy, finds the remembrance of his youthful sins clinging to him; when he would praise, an old lascivious song revives upon his memory; when he would mount up to heaven, 
he suddenly remembers some scene in a haunt of vice which he would be glad to forget. 

But you, saved by divine grace before you thus fall into the jaw of the lion, or under the paw of the bear, 
will certainly have cause for rejoicing all your life.

For meditation:

 Consider some young believers who bore much fruit for God—
Joseph (Genesis 41:12), 
Joshua (Exodus 33:11), 
Samuel (1 Samuel 2:18), 
David (1 Samuel 17:33), 
Solomon (1 Chronicles 22:5), 
Josiah (2 Chronicles 34:3),
 Jeremiah (Jeremiah 1:6),
 Timothy (1 Timothy 4:12). 
Tomorrow’s church leaders will come from today’s young believers.

Sermon no. 513
7 June (1863)

 If you are not a believer in Jesus Christ,

you can be accepted into his kingdom. 

I invite you to let him to make of you,

what He always wanted. 

Marvelous God Almighty, 
I come to you in the precious name of Jesus, who died for me to make me free of sin,
 I want Jesus to enter in to my heart and make me free. 
 I confess that He is the son of God.
 I ask to change my heart and to give me wisdom to understand your Holy Word full of promises of eternal value, 
not only to live on this earth, 
but to be expectant of my life in heaven. 
In the precious name of Jesus I ask.

 “The true minister of Christ knows that the true value of a sermon
 must lie, not in its fashion and manner, 
but in the truth which it contains.”.... 
 Reflection and inspiration from the 
"Prince of Preachers,"
 Charles Haddon Spurgeon
The purpose of these pages is to share the precious word of God, 
 without acquiring any monetary reward.
 God gave me the salvation for free, 
so I share the gospel of his word the same way .. 
 ♥♥♥ Blessings to all of You, 
rejoice in the sublime and infallible word of God ♥♥♥ 

 Father, I ask You to bless my friends, 
relatives and those that I care deeply for, 
who are reading this right now.
 Show them a new revelation of Your love and power. 
 Holy Spirit, I ask You to minister to their spirit at this very moment.
 Where there is pain, give them Your peace and mercy.. 
Where there is self-doubt, release a renewed confidence through Your grace. 
 Where there is need, I ask you to fulfill their needs. 
 Bless their homes, families, finances, their goings and their comings. Amen.
