YOUTH EXPLOSION
The statistics revealed that between 1991 and 2006, the youth population in Nigeria has grown from 22.5 million to over 30 million. Young people currently comprise over 25% of the Nigerian population. 31.4% of the total population is children below the age of 18 comprise more than half of the population. In totality, there are more young people in Nigeria than ever before.
Understanding your uniqueness is crucial to your fulfillment in life. You are uniquely created among the millions. God did not make a mistake in creating you to be who you are. You are created in the image of God {Gen 1:26-27}, and this make you unique among other creations on the earth. Even among other human beings like you, there is no second you. God made you in a special way, with a touch of uniqueness in your beauty, intellect, talents, and abilities.
You are peculiar to God among others. He has specially chosen you as a treasure to Him. He wants you to be a carrier of His glory and splendor. He made you to be different among others. God want your life to be above reproach, and desires that your life bring praises to Him at all times.
WONDERFULLY AND FEARFULLY MADE
The workmanship of God in creating you is marvelous. Your destiny was carefully planned by God before He made you. He designed you to be a male or female with the intention of bringing out the best in you. God had something special in mind for making you who you are. This is why you are a creature of wonders, amazement, and dignity {Psalms 139:13-16}.
GOD THINKS ABOUT YOU CONSTANTLY
You are so precious to God that He thinks about you often. David once said, How precious it is, Lord, to realize that you are thinking about me constantly! I dont even count how many times a day your thoughts turn towards me. And when I waken in the morning, you are still thinking of me.Psalms 139:17-18
YOU ARE GODS ARROW
Like the arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of ones youth. Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them; they shall not be ashamed; but shall speak with their enemies at the gate.
You are a defense to your parents, the church, and the nation – object of pride and glory.
YOUR FUTURE IS GLORIOUS
For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope {Jeremiah 29:11 Living Bible}. God has the best plan for your future.
YOU MUST APPRECIATE YOUR UNIQUENESS
You can only maximize your uniqueness if you appreciate it. I thank God for making me the way I am. And you should also appreciate Him for making you to be unique.
YOU ARE CREATED FOR A PURPOSE
There is a special reason why you exist. God designed you to perform specific tasks, to be in a specific place, marry a specific person, and accomplish a specific purpose.
DISCOVER YOUR PURPOSE
Discovery of your purpose is the recovery of your destiny. Until you discover your purpose, you cannot understand your life. Your purpose is your identity, and your identity can only be found in your creator.
The only way to discover you is to work closely with God, commune with Him, immerse yourself in His word, the Bible, enough so that you begin to see things as God sees them. Then, regularly spend some time each day reflecting on the things you did and the things you learned during the day. View them not from the standpoint of your own selfish interests, but see them from Gods view point. Gradually a pattern will emerge letting you discover yourself.
MAXIMIZE YOUR PURPOSE
You exist to represent God on earth and bring glory to Him through your life. It has been said that average human beings use only 10% of their potential in a life time. That sound ridiculous, isnt it?  This means there are unique potentials and untapped treasures lying dormant within you. You must maximize your purpose to the fullness. You are a shining star!
