The Confident Woman Devotional – It’s Not About Age (Pt. 4)

It’s NOT About Age!

Age is something that holds A LOT of people back. But the devotional for today made it a point to drive home the fact that your age is not necessarily a limitation on what you can and cannot do. For example, in the devotional, there is talk of Timothy, who was Paul’s spiritual son and God called him to do great things. But Timothy was young, and because of that, he felt as though he had nothing to offer. He was fearful and worried about what people thought of his  youth. Paul told him not to let any man despise his youth.

If God calls someone to do something, no matter how big or small, if they have to confidence to go forward, young or old, then absolutely nothing can stop them!

The devotional states that how you respond to your age and how others respond entirely up to you. Everyone ages in years but that is no indication that we have to have that ‘I’m too old’ mindset. Let us not forget that Moses was no youngin’ when he left Egypt to lead the Israelites to the Promised Land. He was 80 years old!

Confident people don’t think about how old they are. Confident people think about what they can accomplish with the time that they have left. Confident people are positive and look at what they have, not what they lost.

The prayer for today’s devotional reads:

Lord, You used people of all ages throughout the Bible and You can use me. Today is a new day and I am excited about what You have for me to accomplish. Amen.

Scripture: 1 Timothy 4:12

12 Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.
Here’s what I have to say —

Remember ladies, you can do anything and everything that you put your mind to!♥
