Monday,15th July, 2013 FULFILLING HIS PURPOSE

Memorise: 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 (Ephesians 1:11)

READ: Ephesians 1:9-12

Isaiah 60:1 commands us to arise
and shine. To shine is to fulfil
your purpose. In Mark 10:46-52 ,
when Bartimaeus was led to
Jesus and He commanded his
eyes to be opened, He was
simply asking his eyes to fulfil
the purpose for which they were
created. No part of your body is
there just for fun: every part has
a purpose. Also, in Acts 3:1-8 ,
when Peter commanded the
lame man to walk, he was only
asking the legs to fulfil their
purpose. Whenever Jesus heals
or delivers an individual, it is in
connection with creating fresh
avenues for the fellow to fulfil
divine purpose. In Mark 8:14-16,
Jesus healed Peter’s mother-in-
law so that she could serve –
fulfil her purpose. Are you sick?
The healing power of God will
touch and heal you so that you
can fulfil God’s purpose. God’s
purpose for the mad man of
Gadara was to be an evangelist,
so when He came to him and
met him occupied with insanity –
which is the devil’s purpose, He
delivered him and he fulfilled
his purpose as an evangelist.
Anything hindering you from
fulfilling God’s purpose for your
life shall be removed by the
power of the Holy Ghost.
In Esther 4:13–6, when the
nation of Israel was facing
organized extermination plans,
Mordecai met Queen Esther and
told her to fulfill her purpose.
May you fulfill your purpose as
president, governor, senator,
minister, pastor, leader, etc. You
are not occupying that vantage
position for your own purpose
but for His divine purpose. You
are not there to serve yourself or
to please yourself, but to both
serve and please Him. To allow
you get into that office or
position, He has displaced
several other people who also
wanted to occupy it. Are you
justifying His decision to choose
you to serve His purpose? Have
you been ordained? If yes, do
you know that you were not
ordained just to bear a title or so
that people will begin to address
you by your title, but to fulfill
His purpose? God did not call
you into the office of a pastor or
evangelist so that you can go
about shaking your head and
announcing that a great man of God is coming, but to preach His Word, win souls, disciple converts, lay hands on the sick, etc. Are you fulfilling His purpose? You cannot shine until you do this.

KEY POINT: The position a believer occupies,
the resources and achievements
he gets and every opportunity
that comes his or her way are all to help the fellow fulfill a divine purpose.
