“And in very deed for this cause have I raised thee up, for to shew in thee my power; and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth” (Exodus 9:16, KJV).
We are all privileged to have a divine appointment and will be anointed to serve the Lord in some capacity. Do you know what special ministry or responsibility the Lord has prepared you for? Are there life lessons the Lord has taught you that you can use in His service? It is your responsibility to identify and understand these lessons and use it for His glory as you dwell in His presence each day. When we endure trials and tribulations, it is not often understood at that time. It is later that we see it was all a part of the journey to get to our purpose and that He knows what we need on time, all the time!
When we seek God, He will give us the guidance, strength and will supply all of our needs to fulfill our God-given purpose. He has given us the freedom to draw from His reservoir which is exclusively kept for us. God is not a selfish God, he does not withhold any good thing for His children to enjoy. In fact, Ephesians 1:11-12 tells us our purpose can be found in His word and He knows our beginning to end: “11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will: 12 That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ”.
Remember, you are a servant to God and we live under His authority. We seek first the Kingdom of God. It is through our ministry that we draw others to Christ. God’s purpose for our life is far greater than we can imagine. Let us be grateful to Him for His pleasure to use us for His glory!
