Many young people turn to various sources of help when facing problems, pain, persecution. I have learned that the best place to find help in times of crisis is in God’s House. In God’s house you can find wisdom, strength, and salvation through Jesus Christ. Expect God to help you when you step in His house.
Psalms 20:2 May He send you help from the sanctuary, And strengthen you out of Zion;
Pressure is a part of life, whether you are young or an adult. When in comes to pressure it is vital that it be handled properly.

How we behave leaves a lasting impression. How we behave also shows others what we think about ourselves and what we think about those who have shaped and molded us.
What are you known for? Is your reputation giving glory to God or is it embarrassing to Him? Are you known as a slacker or someone that is about business? Are you known for being a servant or selfish? Are you more than a conqueror through Christ Jesus or just a cry baby?
We must take time to evaluate our self and improve our reputation. Or as someone said back in the 90’s, “Check yourself before you wreck yourself”.
Proverbs 20:11 Even a child is known by his deeds, Whether what he does is pure and right.
In the 1995 Friday, Deebo was a character known for taking valuables from people. Likewise in life there are people and things that can and will strip us of what is essential to us prospering in God.
Hold on to what is necessary and don’t allow anyone to snatch what God desires you to possess. Don’t get Deebo’ed!
Hold on to the Word
Luke 8:12 Those by the wayside are the ones who hear; then the devil comes and takes away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved.
Hold on to wisdom
Proverbs 6:20-21 Bind them continually upon your heart; Tie them around your neck.
Hold on to good traditions
2 Thessalonians 2:15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast and hold the traditions which you were taught, whether by word or our epistle.
Lonnie Johnson is best known for inventing the Super Soaker water gun, which has ranked among the world’s top 20 best-selling toys every year since its release.
While doing work with the U.S. Air Force, he still had time for his hobbies. This is when he first thought of the Super Soaker (officially there is not a space between Super and Soaker). On October 14, 1983 he applied for a U.S. patent. On May 27, 1986 he received patent number 4,591,071.Initially it was called the “Power Drencher” when it appeared in toy shops in 1990, but after some tweaks and remarketing, it got its official name. Selling between $10 to $60 depending on the model, the Super Soaker took off, generating $200 million in sales in 1991.
Unfortunately, Johnson discovered he was underpaid royalties for the Super Soaker and several "Nerf line of toys, specifically the N-Strike and Dart Tag brands." In November 2013, Johnson was awarded nearly $73 million in royalties from Hasbro Inc. in arbitration. According to Hasbro, the Super Soaker is approaching sales of $1 billion.
At some point in life someone will attempt to see if you are a wimp. As a Christian we should not be pushover. In fact, the Scripture tells us to be strong in the Lord. Secondly, the Bible calls us more than conquerors. And lastly, remember God did not give us the spirit of fear.
Strive to be a mighty young person like David, Daniel, and even Jesus. Be steadfast in standing on God’s Word. Don’t allow yourself or your peers to cause you to compromise your standards. Don’t be a pushover. Be a trendsetter.
Scriptures to meditate on:
2 Timothy 1:7 “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”
Ephesians 6:10 “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.”
