SCRIPTURE: For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness….2 Timothy 4:6-8
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Your endowment reveals your assignment.
One of the best things that can happen to a person is coming to a point where he is sure he is not wasting his life on earth. It is realising, at the last minute of your life on earth like Paul the Apostle did, that you have fought a good fight and finished your course; that you have kept the faith and ready to be offered; that a crown of righteousness is waiting for you.
Now, arriving at this point becomes impossible when purpose is not known. So, it is critical to find out how to discover purpose. How is purpose discovered?
1. Through Divine encounter or revelation
This is having an encounter with God and He reveals your purpose to you like He revealed to Moses.
2. The passion of heart
Your purpose is anchored on your passion. The problem that bothers you is a clue to the solution you are to offer.
What you love doing naturally that gives you joy is a clue to your assignment on earth.
Your endowment reveals your assignment. Fishes were created to live inside water so God had to equip their system with survival mechanism (Gill system, fin, etc.) in the water.
5. Dreams and visions
That which comes to your mind persistently is a clue to your purpose.
Beloved, do you want to fulfil your destiny? Discover your purpose, live it out and trust God for the grace to empty all He has invested in you for His own glory.
Remember this: Your endowment reveals your assignment.
1. If you have not yet discovered your purpose, meditate on the above-mentioned points in our study today and apply them in your life.
2. Move with a sense of urgency on the matter of destiny fulfilment; remember, we do not have eternity to fulfil destiny.
PRAYER: Lord, I trust You for direction in my life’s journey. Help me to do all You expect of me before leaving this world, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
