TRADING CANDLES

You who are young, be happy while you are young, and let your heart give you joy in Whatever God's plans for us, they are good, pleasing and perfect. the days of your youth. Follow the ways of your heart and whatever your eyes see, but know that for all these things God will bring you into judgment.
Ecclesiastes 11:9

Whatever God's plans for us, they are good, pleasing and perfect. Philippians 2:13 says "It is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill His good purpose."
God is not a malevolent taskmaster saying, "Do this or else," but rather our joy is made complete when we surrender to his will. He then turns His desires for us into our desires so that we will pursue them and find joy in His calling.
When we genuinely surrender our lives to Christ, we are actually trading the flickering candles of earthly pleasures for the roaring flame of lasting joy and fulfillment in the Lord.

Lord Jesus, so many young people are looking for joy in faulty places. We pray you will reveal Yourself to them so they may discover that the greatest joy of all is found in You. Thank You, God. Amen
