2016 – Day 8 – Results Time

As we are preparing for SYC I expect that many of you are waiting, perhaps fearfully, for exam results in order to discover what your future holds.
In life we are taught to strive to be the best, the most famous, the richest, the best looking and to get to the top no matter what, any less than this won’t be good enough. So much pressure is put on us and especially you, as young people.

When I was a teenager I wanted to be famous, that’s why I applied to be on a Britain’s Got talent!! I didn’t even get passed the first round, gutted! This became a focus for a while but I knew God had a plan for my life, far bigger than I ever expected! Far bigger then my GCSE and A level results!

Jeremiah 29:11- For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you a hope and a future.

God has a great plan for our lives, when we trust in him and align ourselves, we don’t need to worry or be fearful about the future.
We will step into the will of God for our lives if we are living in alignment with him. God has the BEST life for us.
We need to remember, when we put God first, no longer do we need to worry about what the piece of paper says on results day. God’s plan is bigger.

Isaiah 41:10 – So do not fear, for I am with you, do not be dismayed, for I am the Lord your God and I will uphold you with my righteous right hand

Let’s not be gripped by fear in the run up to camp, fear of results or future, but let’s trust in God and remember he LOVES us and is FOR us.

Let me encourage you to not be distracted by results or fear of them but align yourselves with God. Come to SYC ready and expectant that God will speak to you. When we align with him we are showing we want to hear from him. He will speak to us.

So whether your nervous in anticipation for camp, results or the future. Remember God has got it! He loves you and is for you.
Align yourself with him and you will have the best experience on camp, you will get the results you need and your future will be incredible.

When you are living in the will of God you will thrive!

Align yourself with God this week and come expectant!

Praying for you all!
