Blessed is a man that endures temptation. How does one endure? You endure because God has all of you. When you give all – God takes over. Like the rudder on the ship or the bridle in a horses mouth. The reason for being blessed? God controls you like the rudder and the bridle.
No age limit on such. God can control a teen. God can control the elderly. When Christ comes into you He comes with power. I speak of moral power to be made right. Christ is the Lord of righteousness who blesses believers with a right character and spirit.
Blessed is one who trusts Christ for every need in life. You can stand with Christ. You can walk with Christ. You can live with Christ. You are changed by Christ. Don’t be deceived, “Perfect Peace” comes from the Prince of Peace who blesses and equips teens and elderly with everything needed to endure the things of life.
I quote James, the Brother of Christ. I speak from experience for 26 years, and I look to Christ to supply this standard of life. You can’t tell me Christ can’t do it…I know better.
Teens you can be blessed in a cold dark world of sensuality and dirty living. Teens you can be what God wants you to be. Teens you can set a standard of clean holy living. How? When you’re blessed with power from Heaven to flee youthful lusts. Doesn’t come with age – it comes from giving all. When you give all – Christ takes you over. When Christ takes you over you’re blessed!
As for the elderly – don’t get set in your ways of tradition – live according to the will of God – according to the Word of Truth. Walk in the Spirit, “not in the flesh”. You are bought (blood bought) for a price – glorify God in your body and Spirit which are His. Don’t forget you are the temple of Christ.
Are you blessed? Give all and God will take over. To Christ be the glory! He wants “all” of you – not just “part”. Blessed are the children of God in whom Christ owns, rules, and controls. No age limit!
