It’s another awesome time in God’s presence. Last time, I unveiled to you that you are not just a creature, but you are created to be relevant on the earth.
Today, I will be teaching on Locating the Reason for Your Existence. Like I mentioned last time, there is a reason for which you exist. “How, then, can this reason be located?” I will be sharing with you, hints that will definitely aid the accomplishment of your glorious assignment on the earth. The first is:
Go directly to your Manufacturer!
Enquiry is one certified major way you can locate the reason for your existence. It is enquiry that leads to discovery, as seen in Habakkuk 2:1-3. Thus, enquire from God, who is your Manufacturer. No one has the first hand information on what you have been separated unto, before you existed, other than God your Manufacturer!
God’s Word says: Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find, knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For everyone that asketh receiveth;… (Matthew 7:7-8). There is a certainty from God’s Word that when you ask, you receive. It is, of course, implied that you seek with humility, sincerity, and perseverance.
No parent turns away his child with that which would be injurious. He would not give him a stone instead of bread, or a serpent instead of a fish (Matthew 7:9-10). God is better and kind-hearted than the tenderest earthly parents. With that confidence, therefore, go to Him as His child, and say what you need!
Jeremiah 19:13 also emphasizes this fact: And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. Seeking God with all of your heart is the conscious effort you make, to constantly set your mind towards Him through the means of His revelation. That’s why you need to pray to God from the depth of your heart, with meekness that you may find Him indeed (Psalms 25:9).
I said meekness because without it, the task is impossible. Some people would have already decided on what to do; they only come to God for the purpose of formality. Your prayer to God must be from a genuine heart that is willing to know, not a heart that is already made up and concluded on what to do.
Also, seek counsel from the Manufacturer’s manual, which is the Bible. This manual contains God’s drawing for your life. The Manufacturer’s reason for your existence will never be contrary to what His Word already contains.
As a single person reading this piece, you are most opportune to discover the reason for your existence. To miss this reason is to live in misery. I had always known from my youth that I will be involved in ministry work, though I never knew the magnitude.
One of the most fervent and frequent prayers, I still remember very clearly that I ever prayed, especially in my single years, was along this line. That is why it’s no surprise, today, where God has taken me.
The mandate for this ministry was also delivered to my husband, the visionary before we got married, while he was still single. What God has done through this ministry is amazing but, it all began during the single years.
God, your Manufacturer, is ever eager to show you where you belong. Today, I am a living proof that it works, through the act of prayer and time-to-time enquiry from His Word. As you engage this means also, He will do the same for you in Jesus’ name.
Asking and receiving from God are the benefits of members of His household. You are a member of His household, if you have surrendered the lordship of your life to Jesus. If you have not and you wish to, I encourage you to sincerely confess your sins and accept Christ into your life today, and you will become a member of His household.
You accept Him by saying this prayer of faith: “Dear Lord Jesus, I come to You today as a sinner. Forgive me of my sins. I believe You died and rose on the third day for my sins. I accept You as my Lord and Saviour. Make me a child of God today. Thank You for accepting me into Your Kingdom.”
Congratulations, you are now born again! I believe that you will begin to experience the reality of the price that Jesus paid for your sins at Calvary. All-round rest and peace are guaranteed you in Jesus’ Name! Call or write, and share your testimonies with me through email@example.com; OR 07026385437 and 08141320204.
