DAY 6 TUESDAY: OCTOBER 2020

MAKE A MARK IN YOUR LIFETIME!

For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this? (Esther 4:14).

In a football competition, there are different categories of people in life. We have the spectators, officials and the footballers. But among the footballers, there are some that are very unique; these ones make marks by creating history in life. God has given us the power to make a mark in our lifetime that will create history in the future.  The Bible tells us that you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you (Acts 1:8). Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God wants him to make a mark in his lifetime and generation in life. A life that makes a mark in lifetime is a life that makes history in the sand of time forever.

History is full of stories of great men and women who made a mark in their lifetime. Queen Esther happened to be one of them in life. In fact, if not for the prompt action of Queen Esther, the entire Jews would have been totally annihilated by the enemy of the Jews, Hamah. But thank God for the prompt intervention of Queen Esther that saved the entire race of the Jews in life. Therefore, it is the duty of a Christian to always arise in making a mark in his lifetime through the grace and power of the Holy Spirit in life. God expects a Christian to make a mark in his lifetime and generation in life. Hence, it is absolutely the life that makes a mark in his lifetime that imparts future generations in life forever.

Moses is another great man of God who made a mark in his lifetime and generation in life. History of life cannot forget the man called Moses in life. A child that was destined to die but later became a prince in a foreign land. A murderer who went into asylum in the wilderness to become a shepherd. A shepherd who met God at the burning bush and became a deliverer to the children of Israel. He successfully delivered the children of Israel from Egypt. In fact, God created a Christian in His own image and likeness, and destined him for a life of greatness in life. Of course, just like Moses a Christian is expected to make impart in his lifetime and generation in life forever.

Daily Tip: You are not a spectator for life; you have been destined to make a mark in your lifetime and generation in life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing (Genesis 12:2).
