Grand Purpose – Destiny!

prv 19Lord God Almighty, I give you all the glory, honor, and adoration. I am short of words to express what is going on inside of my being right now.

Something is happening to me

Something is happening in me

Something divine

Something beyond my comprehension is happening

It is beautiful and full of peace, joy, hope!

And some feelings I can’t quite put into words

Oh wow! I can’t believe I am writing this!

You see Friends, I, like some of you and many others likewise, who has merely been existing without knowing the purpose of their existence, living life below full potential, without an inkling of what “Life” is. Life you see is eternal, it is beyond this world that we know of. Life existed even before we were born. We came into being after conception and all it entails, however we existed before that, we just had to wait to come through our parents as ordained of God, the Master planner, scheduler, Master builder of the human race.

Jeremiah 1:5Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you;
I ordained you a prophet to the nations
.”

As the verse stated, It can be deduced that we existed as a spirit, known by the Father of Spirit, before we were placed in our parents spermatozoa and eggs accompanied by the passion and union that resulted in our conception. We are here to play an important role or roles. We have a destiny to fulfill! A plan to follow!

Be aware that the circumstances of your conception does not determine your purpose in God’s plan for your life, your part in the agenda of heaven. You are here for a grand purpose. Like Perez and Zerah in Genesis 38 and our Lord Jesus Christ in Matthew 1:18-25, Luke 1:26-38, your conception might not make sense as at the time of your birth. Like David, you might have been that unwanted pregnancy, the last born of the family, the boy that came when your parents wanted a girl, or the girl born when expectation was for the arrival of a long awaited boy. You are very important in the agenda of heaven! You are loved, cherished and needed for a task that ONLY you can accomplish.

Don’t waste precious moments, times, opportunities and gifts that can be channelled towards the accomplishment of that divine task prepared in advance of your birth! Ephesians 2: 10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

You have to do yourself a favour to remind yourself constantly of your importance in the agenda of heaven and partner with your maker, the creator of heaven and earth to see you through the fulfillment of this grand plan. Remember, in this world where you and I live in we will have tribulations, things will happen that may make you doubt and wonder why you are here and all sort. John 16:33 These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

Knowing the mind of God towards you as His child will help you to be grounded with the assurance that whatever storm you are in shall PASS! Yes, it has not come to stay, just ask for the help of the Holy Spirit to help you to learn on time that which you are expected to learn from each season, so you can grow and move to the next season, fulfilling the plan and purpose for which you came into being.

Friends, please note that you are very important! Actually, God Almighty is counting on you to make impact for the good of ALL in your sphere of influence, starting from your home and every life that comes in contact with you out wards. Sow the seed of goodness, kindness, peace, love, encouragement and compassion.

Jesus in Samaria!

 

Psalm-42-2-My-Soul-Thirsts-for-God-gray-copyJohn 4:4 But He needed to go through Samaria. This is Jesus Christ needing to go through Samaria! Why does our Lord Jesus Christ have to go through Samaria? Why not take another route? Jews were not meant to relate, mingle, interact with Samaritans, and Jesus knows this quite well, why go through the city of the accursed?

Jesus had to go through an accursed, sinful woman in order to reach/save a people, a whole city for His kingdom. Isn’t it possible that Jesus could have met anyone else somewhere in Judea that could bring the message back to Samaria? Jesus as Lord new the heart of all human regardless of our outward piousness and sinfulness.

Jesus knew the heart of this Samaritan woman. He knew she was thirsty and hungry for life, for what she had was not satisfying. She knew there was something more and was believing, hopeful and expectant and was searching. How do I know that? John 4:25 The woman said to Him, “I know that Messiah is coming” (who is called Christ) “When He comes, He will tell us all things,”

The scripture also said she was lecturing Jesus Christ about the Well of Jacob. She had knowledge of her Abrahamic Heritage in John 4: 12 “Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well, and drank from it himself, as well as his sons and his livestock?”  and verse 20 “Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, and you Jews say that in Jerusalem is the place where one ought to worship.”

Friends, what does Samaria represent in your life? What situation, circumstance or experience are you having right now? That happening that you thought shouldn’t be or have been! That glitch, hiccup and happenstance, ask the Lord for understanding and you will see that, it had to happen for God to be glorified in your life. Jesus went through Samaria to save a people for His kingdom, you are going through Samaria in order to benefit the kingdom of God. Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.

Look inward friends, and you will realize that you have moved a step higher from who you used to be. Like the Samaritan woman, you are more confident of your heritage in Christ Jesus. You know who you are better now than before and your life is having impact in your spheres of influence. Like the Samaritan woman’s transformation, those in the city, lost and thirsty, but with the attitude of we’ve got everything together are having an “awe” moment. The light bulb is coming on in their hearts.

She showed the whole city the way to the Lord – The Way, The Truth and Life. John 4:28-30 The woman then left her waterpot, went her way into the city, and said to the men, 29 “Come, see a Man who told me all things that I ever did. Could this be the Christ?” 30 Then they went out of the city and came to Him. and 39- 42  And many of the Samaritans of that city believed in Him because of the word of the woman who testified, “He told me all that I ever did.” 40 So when the Samaritans had come to Him, they urged Him to stay with them; and He stayed there two days. 41 And many more believed because of His own word.42 Then they said to the woman, “Now we believe, not because of what you said, for we ourselves have heard Him and we know that this is indeed the the Savior of the world.”

What about you friends? Do not hide your light, don’t put it under the table, no matter how little, put it on a stool, lampstand, anywhere! Let it show someone the way to the Lord! Give hope to the hopeless, be a friend to the friendless. It takes the heart of Jesus to be a giver! Give love, encouragement, and comfort to another. Build up, strengthen and reach out to steady the stumbling. Jesus will never leave nor forsake you. Reach out to the deep for a catch. You will be surprised, for the harvest is plenty and the labourers are few. John 4: 34-38. Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work. 35 Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest! 36 And he who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, that both he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together. 37 For in this the saying is true: ‘One sows and another reaps.’38 I sent you to reap that for which you have not labored; others have labored, and you have entered into their labors.” Do your part in God’s kingdom – preach and live The Word in season and out of season

Are you drinking and still thirsty and hungry? In the dark without Christ in your heart? I want you to know that Jesus loves you. Romans 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. However John 3:16-17 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. Jesus wants you to come to him, acknowledging your need for him in your life, confess your sins and ask him to quench your thirst – fill you with Himself, His Holy Spirit. Reach out today! Jesus is waiting!

Lean On God

psalm33_20_22John 2:24-25  But Jesus would not entrust himself to them, for he knew all people. 25 He did not need any testimony about mankind, for he knew what was in each person.NIV

John 2:24-25 But Jesus did not commit Himself to them, because He knew all men, 25 and had no need that anyone should testify of man, for He knew what was in man.NKJV

John 2:24-25  But Jesus didn’t entrust his life to them. He knew them inside and out, knew how untrustworthy they were. He didn’t need any help in seeing right through them. MSG

Friends, this is a new dawn, a new season of your life in the fulfillment of God’s divine purpose for your life. God is about to do a new thing, you are about to walk into that which the Lord prepared in advance for you to do.

Scripture is about to be fulfilled in your life before your very eyes. Do not lose focus at this critical time. Seek the Lord with all your heart, soul, and body. Do not lean on your own understanding, rather commit all your ways unto the Lord.

Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones. Do not lean on the arm of flesh for it will fail you.

Jeremiah 17:5-10

 This is what the Lord says:

Cursed is the one who trusts in man,
    who draws strength from mere flesh
    and whose heart turns away from the Lord.
That person will be like a bush in the wastelands;
    they will not see prosperity when it comes.
They will dwell in the parched places of the desert,
    in a salt land where no one lives.

But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,
    whose confidence is in him.
They will be like a tree planted by the water
    that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
    its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
    and never fails to bear fruit.”

The heart is deceitful above all things
    and beyond cure.
    Who can understand it?

10 “I the Lord search the heart
    and examine the mind,
to reward each person according to their conduct,
    according to what their deeds deserve.”

Grateful To Jehovah!
