Topic: Key Facts About Your Creation [Thursday April 5, 2018]
Scripture: Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.Jeremiah 1:5
Thought For The Day: To be independent of God is to be inefficient and incompetent in life.
It has been confirmed that mentality determines reality. One reason people live without a sense of purpose and destiny is the ignorance of some basic facts about their creation. Not knowing where one is heading to in life is the reason for aimless existence. This is why Myles Munroe said that when Purpose is not known, abuse is inevitable.
Now, we shall look at three Key facts about your creation:
i) Man is a Product of God’s Deliberate Intention
Being a product of God’s deliberate intention implies that God sat down and calculated your existence. Therefore, your existence is not a result of God’s absentmindedness. He knows the details of your life even to the point of numbering the hairs on your head (Matthew 10:30).
ii) You were created because you were needed
Necessity is the mother of invention. If you were not needed, you would not have been created. It does not matter whether people think you are insignificant in life because God who made you created you because you are needed. You are not on earth to be managed by the world. So, you must not let life manage you and you must not manage life; give life all it takes for maximum impact.
iii) The key to fulfilment of destiny is alignment with the Almighty
To be independent of God is to be inefficient and incompetent in life. The buoyancy of your relationship with God determines the vibrancy of your destiny on earth. Spending time with God is key to fulfilment of destiny.
My counsel is, study God’s manual for your life which is the Bible. Depend on God totally for the fulfilment of His Purpose for creating you.
Remember this: To be independent of God is to be inefficient and incompetent in life.
1. Discover God’s Purpose for your life from the Manufacturer’s Manual (the Bible).
2. Align yourself with God in order to fulfil His Purpose for your life.
Prayer: O Lord, I ask for the grace to study Your Word diligently so I can understand Your plan for my life. Help me to align myself with You, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
