Topic: The Will Of God [Wednesday 25, January 2017]
“And when he removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave testimony, and said I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfill all my will” ( Acts 13:22).
It is very clear here that God specifically chose David. He was not chosen randomly. He was not a try-your-luck choice. He was intentionally or deliberately chosen. When God said David was a man after His heart, He was actually saying that He was convinced that David would fulfill His will.
Now I want you to take note of the following: Purpose and the will of God are strongly connected. So then, what is Purpose?
Purpose means the intended result of an effort, the why of any act or thing. Accordingly, there is a purpose why you are in this world. For instance, the choir in every church has a purpose. The purpose of the choir is to minister in songs. The will or purpose of God for you is the road map that brings you to where you will fulfill His will and your will.
The will of God is the guideline. It is what you may want to call a step-by-step outline, solely intended to fulfill God’s purpose in your life
WORDS OF WISDOM: Purpose is the why of any act or thing.
PRAYER/CONFESSION: Father, show me my purpose in life and let your will be fulfilled in my life, in Jesus name.
