For the Teens, by Dylan Cruz

Dylan Cruz is a young man with a brilliant future. He comes from a dynamic heritage. Both of his parents serve as Senior Assistant Pastors at Lighthouse Church of All Nations.  And because I love his family as much as I do, that would have been enough reason for me to invite him to write something.  But as it turns out, Dylan has an awful lot going for him. He is an actor in his senior year of high school.  He is a preacher with several sermons under his belt. He is a singer with a nationally touring choir. And he is a gentleman who truly honors his relationship with God. I cannot wait to say, “I knew him when…”


For the teens out there, I can relate to the things in the world as well as school and what the people out there try to throw your way. The enemy has many plans and obstacles for us teens to get sidetracked.  We become rebellious and make bad choices through pure pressure and respond to other things that take our eyes off God.

As you read this I hope this inspires you to always keep your eyes on the Lord, put Him first in everything you do, and take authority and rebuke the enemy and his plans, for he has already lost. God didn’t give His life for us so that we could get lost in the world. He gave his life so that we can be free from sin. We are the next generation that needs to stand up for one another, support and love one another. God’s creation of us came with destiny. God’s creation gave us purpose and it gave us a mission. His creation of us not only gave us life, but it gave us the opportunity to minister to others and take the gospel farther than generations before us.

We were created to stand in one accord, take authority over our life and put the enemy underneath our feet where he belongs. We can’t let the enemy get a hold of us. We have a mission here. We have gifts that are God given, whether it’d be singing, dancing, acting; we need to use them for Jesus.

I know how it is to have the world try to change you. Sometimes you just want to fit in but with the wrong group of people. And sometimes it’s not all about fitting in. Fit in the place that God has set for you. Because what the world has for you isn’t your purpose. Don’t you know that you were made for so much more than that? The world can’t give you what God already has for you. What God has for you is so much more. Have faith and walk in your favor. Once, my uncle said, the enemy may have the power distract us and make us stumble for a moment, but he doesn’t have the power to completely take us out, because we’re un-sink-able with God.

First Peter 2:9 says, “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth with the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.”

We need to be ambitious towards the things of God, read His word, and continually give Him praise for He is the purpose that you are alive, with breath in your body, in your right mind, with a roof over your head and shoes and your feet, clothes on your back and food on the table. Trust in Him with everything you do and you shall be successful, blessed and highly favored. When you’re in need, call on the name of Jesus because He is always there. Be blessed and show the devil that you are a child of God whom he cannot touch
