Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today – September 28, 2016
But in the days when the seventh angel is about to sound his trumpet, the mystery of God will be accomplished, just as he announced to his servants the prophets. Revelation 10:7
Our gracious God guarantees a grant of wisdom in His ways. He wants us to experience His eternal aim for His glory. His purpose fulfillment started when we placed our faith in Jesus. This was our contract with Christ that laid the responsibility of fulfilling His purpose at the feet of our heavenly Father. Our Lord finishes what He begins. Whatsoever the Lord takes in hand, He will accomplish. So we trust the Almighty with the fulfillment of His ways for our life.
The mystery of God’s plan had already been announced to His servants the prophets in the first coming of Jesus as a suffering servant for the sins of mankind, and in Christ’s second coming as reigning King and Judge of the sins of mankind. Without faith, the ways of the Lord remain a mystery, but by faith God’s children are able to see God’s ways. Faith brings real fulfillment.
“Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus” (Philippians 1:6).
Prayer prepares us to harvest heaven’s purpose for our life. We cry out to the Most High because there is nothing and no one any higher. God is the divine decision maker. He is our Maker. Nowhere else we can go to understand the purpose of our lives other than the Lord Jesus Christ. We cry out to Christ because He has adopted us. Our Heavenly Father defines our purpose by His purpose for us. Prayer positions us to be led by the Holy Spirit. He fulfills His purposes.
Lean into the Lord to be led into His plan for your life. Once you establish His purpose for you, leverage it for others. Use your strength of position to help others discover their God-given purpose. Have them list their gifts, skills, passions and experiences. Pray with them about how God wants to collate their assets for Christ. No season of life is insignificant in the Lord’s eyes. Don’t wish away where you are today. By faith, you can be sure that Christ is currently fulfilling your purpose. Affirm your goals are God-given and trust Him with their fulfillment!
“I cry out to God Most High, to God, who fulfills his purpose to me” (Psalm 57:2).
PrayerHeavenly Father, I wait on You to show me the way to go and I’ll trust you all the way.
ApplicationWhat is the role of prayer in fulfilling God’s plan? How can I adjust my goals to reflect God’s?
