ALLOW GOD TO START WITH YOU
Genesis 12 vs
_»»2. ¶And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:-[KJV]«« ||_
IN LIFE, it seems there are almost “starters” everywhere. This is because whatever you see or hear or even touched today was started by somebody. Someone started that rich family, marriage, company, business or nation. The same applies to other things or situations which are not good or pleasant. They didn’t just burst forth automatically. Within our families, societies or nations, there may be certain trends or patterns which were started by someone. These trends may be good and worthy of emulation whilst others may not.
However, God definitely searches and chooses a person in the family or nation with a perfect heart who will change things for the best. Physically, there are people who have invented devices in this world which make work much interesting and easier. For instance, the wisdom to invent cars started with one person till it finally spread all over. However, every individual in the sight of God is far better that a human invention. You are God’s invention. God made you in His image to do something great on this earth. And He wants to start something glorious which will be a blessing to many lives.
Our opening scripture unveils how God called Abraham out of his kindred, family and father’s house (Gen 12:1 ff). God revealed to Abraham the purpose of his calling that He would make him a great nation by blessing and making him a blessing. So God founded a nation in one man, Abraham. How much more a New Creation in the order of Jesus Christ? In the New Testament too, God started a mighty journey of the gospel among the Gentiles with Paul whilst Peter centred on the Jews (Acts 9:15; 11:2). Today, God has called you to start something greater in your family, community or nation. Yes, He wants to use you to start that glorious life, family, nation, company, marriage, ministry, home, business. Are you ready?
Beloved, when God called you, He already had something in mind for you to accomplish in this world. Something great, purposeful, glorious and fulfilling. This is why you are now found in His kingdom. So that He can prepare and train you for greatness till you become a vessel of blessing to others. We are all not called to start the same things but the end result of all should bring glory to God and edification to people. And the key to all this greatness is obedience and faithfulness. If Noah had not obeyed, God would have chosen someone else. Because God never lacks any resources whether human, material or capital etc. Besides, whiles He want to start a new thing with you He is ending something through you. Allow God to start something great with you. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always.
Dear Father, thank You for counting me worthy into Your vineyard to start something great and glorious with me. I avail my heart, mind and body to be used for Your glory. I ask and receive the resources needed to accomplish every worthy course you’ve destined for my life. I am making impact in my family,country and generation in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen !
Enjoy A Triumphant Friday !
