Verse Of The Day : I have glorified you on the earth: I have finished the work which you gave me to do. John 17:4
Thought of The Day : Everyone in the earth is created to be on a mission for God, but lots of people end up working for the devil because of ignorance.
LISTEN : God is glorified when you finish your earthly assignments well. You are in the world for a purpose; yes, everyone who comes to this world is here for a purpose. And the purpose is the reason why he or she is created. God clearly told Jeremiah thus :
“…Before I formed you in the belly I knew you;
and before you came forth out
of the womb I sanctified you, and I ordained
you a prophet unto the nations.”
What this simply means is that, God created us for a purpose. He ordained us to fulfill His will with our talents, time and treasures. My dear, before you were formed in the womb, God already have designed your assignments in the earth. As a matter of fact, everyone in the earth is created to be on a mission for God, but lots of people end up working for the devil because of ignorance. The Bible says,
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge:
because you have rejected knowledge,
I will also reject you, that you shall
be no priest to me: seeing you have
forgotten the law of your God…”
Beloved, be careful lest you perish. When your purpose of existence is despised or neglected life will be miserable and meaningless. Myles Monroe of blessed memory said, “where purpose is not known abuse is inevitable.” Friend, life is abused and destinies are marred when purpose is ‘murdered.’ Know your purpose of living. In our theme verse Jesus Christ said,
“I have glorified you on the earth:
I have finished the work which
you gave me to do.”
Jesus Christ had an assignment to die for the salvation of the world. He fulfilled that purpose when He died on the cross; was buried and resurrected for our salvation. With that, He glorified God, the Father. He finished His assignment in the earth. Beloved, what are you doing with your God-given purpose? Determine to finish well and God will be glorified. Be wise!
What Should We Do With This Message?
1. Know your purpose of living and work hard to achieve it.
2. Ask God to open your eyes to His will for your life.
3. Do not work in ignorance, rather, find out what and where to go as long as you live.
4. Never abuse your purpose of living as long as you live.
Prayer : Dear heavenly Father, you created me for a purpose, therefore, I will fulfill my purpose of living, amen.
A Word Of Blessing : Today I speak on your life, receive grace to fulfill your God-given purpose. You will not miss God’s purpose for your life, in Jesus ’ name, amen!
Reflection : One becomes useless in the journey of life, when ones purpose of existence is despised or neglected.
Quote : When God is glorified with our lives on earth, He will glorify us with His kingdom at last.
