Welcome to yet another time of refreshing on this column. This month shall be for you a month of great happenings.
This month, I shall be taking you on a series I titled: You Are Created For Relevance! God predestinated you for glory; whether you will arrive at that predestination or not is left to you to decide.
God’s Word says: 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). That is, there is a reason for your existence in life.
Isn’t it exciting to note that before you were formed in your mother’s womb, God knew you and set you aside for something specific? That is, that specific thing that you have been set aside for, is the reason for your existence.
You are not an after-thought or a biological accident, the circumstance surrounding your birth notwithstanding. Even if you were born out of wedlock, you did not just happen or appear on this earth by mistake. You were made!
God’s Word says: Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture (Psalms 100:3). That means, you are deliberately packaged by God, your Manufacturer, and sent to the planet earth for a specific reason.
However, you cannot live a distinguished and an outstanding life, until you locate that specific reason for which you are sent and abide in it. For a product to deliver its best, it must be used according to the manufacturer’s design/prescription.
Apostle Paul speaking from Galatians 1:15 said: But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb, and called me by his grace. That is, he operated with this understanding and lived a distinguished life. He knew he was separated unto something right from his mother’s womb, but he did not only stop there, he located that reason and lived for it.
Some other people, who lived an outstanding life, did so on the basis of their discovery of the reason for their existence, including Jesus, Joseph, Gideon, Esther, Jeremiah, Peter, etc.
In essence, even though there is a reason for your existence, you must understand that it is your personal, non-transferable responsibility to discover it. Locate that particular task or mission you have been assigned to accomplish, abide in it and pursue it with all excitement; you will definitely live a positively different life!
Therefore, for you to stand out among others, you have to be at the centre of that particular cause to which you have been separated on the earth. Until you locate the reason why you exist, you are a disaster going somewhere to happen!
May I ask you this question – What exactly is the reason for your existence on the earth? This is the only way for you to find bearing for your life. May you locate it on time and live solely for it. You shall not be a disappointment to destiny!
God has an equal glorious destiny for all His children (Romans 8:28-30). Yet, it is individual preferences that distinguish one person from another. No matter how long you live on earth, your years are broken down into months, weeks, days and hours. That means that whatever your assignment may be on earth to fulfil, you don’t have eternity to do so; you only have a season. So, handle it well, and maximise your days.
You can only live a distinguished and outstanding life on the earth, when you secure an intimate relationship with God, your Creator, because He alone has the master plan of your life in His care. You secure this intimate relationship with Him, by confessing your sins and accepting Him as your Lord and personal Saviour. If you are set for this, say 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 firstname.lastname@example.org; OR 07026385437 and 08141320204.
