MY LIVING WATER DAILY DEVOTIONAL
FRIDAY APRIL 22, 2022
PLACED HERE FOR A PURPOSE
Main Text:1 Peter 2:9 – But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
John 18:37 – For this cause I was born and for this cause I have come into the world’’
God has a plan for our lives that is complete in every detail. The sovereign of the universe leaves nothing to chance The life of Jesus is a prime example. His coming as a Baby in Bethlehem, His earthly Ministry, His death and His resurrection, all took place according to God’s purpose to show that Jesus was determined to do His Father’s will. Luke wrote ‘‘He steadfastly set His face to go to Jerusalem (Luke 9:51) Jesus death was no turn of fate – it was a fulfillment of Gods plan. He had come to give His life a ransom for the sin, of the world.
It is also true that the life of every person, has been designed by the heavenly father to fulfill a specific purpose. It was C.H. Surgeon who said ‘‘I will never have it that God created any man, especially any Christian man, to be a blank, and to be a nothing. He made you for an end. Find out what that end is, find out your niche and fill it’’.
We must learn to view the events of our life from the divine perspective. God has a plan for our lives. Knowing this, will cause us to look for ways to serve Him and glorify Him in everything we do.
YOU ARE HERE FOR A DIVINE PURPOSE TO FULFILL
PRAYER: Father Lord, open our eyes to know what gifts and talents you have placed in us. Give us grace to use those gifts to your glory.
