David served God’s purpose in his generation – Acts 13v36 He was a man after Gods heart, fulfilling Gods purposes on earth. You do the eternal & timeless (God’s purpose) in a contempory and timely way (in your generation). Neither past nor future generations can serve Gods purpose in this generation. Only we can. Like Esther, God created you ‘for such a time as this’. God is still looking for people to use ‘ The eyes of the Lord search the whole earth in order the strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him.’ Will you serve God’s purpose in your generation? One day history will close, but eternity will go on forever.
Extract from Day 40 – What on earth am I here for? – Rich Warren.
“But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” – 1 Corinthians 2:9
Are you feeling very low in spirit or tired in body today? Maybe the buffeting you have been enduring has exhausted you. The Lord has good news for you. He says eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor has it even entered into the heart of man the wonderful things which God has prepared for those who love Him.
You can believe the lies of the devil, who is saying to you that you’re a failure, a loser, and that you will never about to anything. But Jesus said ‘ It is finished’ and He meant it. He has done the job and completed the task. Victory is ours.
Think about this question today: how big is God? The answer is very simple. God is as big as you allow Him to be.
