Your World: Just 16 & Facing Life in Prison
In this episode “Just 16 & Facing Life in Prison”. Pastor Creflo Dollar tells us that at some point in life we all face struggles. Maybe you’re facing an uncertain future, and have lost all control. No matter what has happened in your life, you can receive a new future in Christ Jesus today!
Over 1.3 MILLION boys and girls ages 10-17 were arrested last year alone and facing life in prison! In fact, by age 23 up to 41% of teens in the US have been arrested at least once. In our society, children are being exposed to crime and committing crime at a young age. Even those who don’t end up in jail will still have a negative mark on their souls from this experience, scarring them emotionally, physically, and spiritually.
Believing God and trusting in His Word are no pat answers. Also, “Have faith in God” is no glib phrase. He is all you’ve got! He is all you need, and HE is more than enough!
The Bible says, “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble” (Psalm 46:1). He is your strong tower in troubling times. You can run to Him and be safe (Proverbs 18:10)!
God cares about you. Not only does He care for you, He LOVES YOU. And as a man of His Word, He put it in writing for you—and it’s all contained within 66 books of the Bible!
For now, let’s focus upon Hebrews 13:5. It is an excellent display of God’s love. It’s God’s “Assurance Plan.”
No matter what your station in life may be, Hebrews 13:5 offers hope. Even in your present circumstances and with whatever small or little amount you may have, God can make you satisfied. Armed with the knowledge of God and how much He loves you, you can rightfully expect Him to provide for all your needs. In some cases, people have received necessary provisions suddenly right at their door! It was Him. It was God!
