Daily Devotional – 11/6/18 “Purpose!”

I don’t know who needs to read this but your purpose will never stop chasing you. Yea, you might ignore it but it’ll still be there. You may never walk in it but it’ll still keep waking you up at night. I don’t know who needs to read this but your purpose only dies when you do. You can keep allowing fear to talk you out of it but it’ll still be there. You can sit on it and it’ll still be there when you stand up. Why? Because God said, as plainly as possible, in Proverbs 16:4, “The LORD has made everything for its own purpose, Even the wicked for the day of evil.” Let me type this again … The LORD has made everything for ITS OWN PURPOSE! ITS means belonging to so in this scripture, ‘its’ is referencing God. God made everything for Himself and God doesn’t leave loose ends to just lollygag in the wind. He has a purpose for everything He makes, especially you. I don’t care who said you’d never make it, God made you for His purpose and He doesn’t make mistakes. I don’t care if your business didn’t succeed the first time, God made you for His purpose and He doesn’t make failures. I don’t care what is tied to your bloodline, God made you for His purpose and He has the ability to destroy every curse.

Beloved, you have a purpose and God will ensure you get to it. Why do you think He kept you and your mind while you did all those drugs and alcohol? Why do you think He allowed you to survive when you were having unprotected sex and didn’t get an incurable disease? Why do you think He allowed you to beat what doctors said would kill you? Why do you think He allowed healing when a degenerative disease should have been your portion? Beloved, you have a purpose and this is why you are still here. When will you get up? You are still alive so when will you get up and write the vision? You are still graced for this so when will you get up, write the vision and get to work? Your purpose is yours to do what you want with it and it’s pass/fail ratio depends on your performance/fear. What are you going to do? You can keep grumbling or you can get up. You can keep complaining or you can conquer. You can observe or you can occupy. You can be a passerby or a participator. You can be the borrower or the lender, the worker or the employer … you get it, right? Then get it. IT=PURPOSE!

Daily Devotional – 9/2/15 “Off guard timing!”

God is getting ready to do some things in the lives of Saints that is going to catch a lot of us off guard. For some, it’ll be blessings that we’ve asked for and thought God forgotten about but a delayed blessing doesn’t mean no, it simply wasn’t reaping time. For some, it’s going to be a storm but it’s just our season, don’t count out your struggle by focusing so much on the fact that you’re in a storm; it’s for a purpose! And for some, it’s going to be an eye opener to, hopefully, get you back on your predestined path of purpose. Yes, sometimes the off guard blessings are good and sometimes God has to send some stuff, not to hurt us but to reshape us. Look at any off guard picture taken. Are they all good? Nope! And usually when you take a picture you don’t like, don’t you retake it by standing a different way? That’s reshaping your pose.

This is what I mean by off guard, you never know what to expect yet accept it when it comes. Baby, whatever it is that God does in our life, He has a reason. The bible says in Proverbs 16:4, “The LORD has made everything for his own purposes, even the wicked for a day of disaster.” It doesn’t matter what happens in our lives; if it is of God, by God due to the fact that we are in God, He has a purpose for it. Do we want the bad? No but why shouldn’t we have to take some of the bad in order to get the good when the good ALWAYS outweigh the bad? All I want you to get out of this today my brother, my sister; is this, whatever it is you’re about to receive, accept it for it is not to hurt you. How do I know? Well, the bible tells me so for Jeremiah 29:11-13 says, “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.” It’s God perfect timing yet it’ll be off guard timing to you! Accept it!
