UNDERSTANDING YOUR PURPOSE

UNDERSTANDING YOUR PURPOSE

Collins English Dictionary defines the word “purpose” as “the reason for which anything is done, created, or exists; a fixed design, outcome, or idea that is the object of an action or other effort; fixed intention in doing something.”

God is a God of purpose. He does nothing without a specific purpose or fixed intention. Your birth was neither a mistake nor mishap notwithstanding the circumstances surrounding your birth. You are not a biological accident but a product of purpose! God created you on purpose, with a purpose, and for a purpose. God has a glorious purpose or fixed intention for creating and saving you…

WHAT CAN YOU DIE FOR?

WHAT CAN YOU DIE FOR?

Having discovered their true calling and purpose in Christ, nothing was strong enough to stand in their path of accomplishing God’s purpose, not even the threat of death or persecution. When they were severely threatened and commanded to stop preaching or teaching in the name of Jesus, their prompt response was: “For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.” (Acts 4:20 NKJV).

They were willing to die for the cause and the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. What about you? Although Apostle Paul knew that chains and tribulations awaited him in Jerusalem, yet he embraced it with joy so that he might fulfil the ministry he had received from the Lord Jesus…

THE ROD OF GOD

THE ROD OF GOD

With the rod of God in his hand, Moses wrought great exploits, signs and wonders in Egypt that confounded and humiliated Pharaoh and all the sorcerers, magicians and wise men in Egypt, and brought out the children of Israel from Egypt, thereby fulfilling his divine purpose in life.

Just as Moses began to see, call, regard and treat his rod as the holy rod of God after surrendering it to God, having surrendered your life to Christ, you also must begin to see, call, regard and treat yourself as sacred and holy to God – no longer as a common, unholy, natural or ordinary person…

WHAT IS THAT IN YOUR HAND?

WHAT IS THAT IN YOUR HAND?

Moses returned to Egypt with nothing but with his rod in his hand and he did nothing in Egypt without his rod in his hand. Like Moses, you already have in your life and hand what God can bless and use to accomplish His divine purpose through you.

What God has placed in your life and hand is suitable enough to accomplish God’s purpose for your life if you will only present and surrender it to God just as Moses presented and surrendered his rod to God. God has been preserving, preparing and equipping you for the divine purpose and mission He created you to accomplish from the time you arrived in this world…

TAKE AWAY THE STONE

TAKE AWAY THE STONE

Martha would not want Jesus and other guests who had gathered to sympathize with them to be offended, disgusted and repelled away by the repulsive stench from Lazarus’ decomposing body in the cave, so she wanted the stone left alone.

Nevertheless, at Jesus’ insistence, the stone was taken away and instead of the people to be offended, disgusted or repelled away by any stench, they glorified the Lord Jesus Christ when they saw Lazarus rose from the dead at the command of Jesus (John 11:39-45). The Lord Jesus commanded that the stone laid against Lazarus’ cave to contain his stench within the cave be taken away before raising Lazarus back to life. Why?
