DAY 4 WEDNESDAY: NOVEMBER 2020

FULFILL YOUR DIVINE MANDATE FROM GOD!

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations (Jeremiah 1:5).

Everyone was born with a divine mandate from God in life. Your existence is not by chance or coincident but divinely arranged by God Himself in life. In the opening text, God said to Jeremiah that before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations. This shows that God knew and approved your existence even before you were born in life. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God wants him to fulfill his divine mandate in life. Indeed, a Christian has a divine mandate to fulfill from God in life. Hence, fulfilling God’s divine mandate is therefore a Christian’s sole responsibility in life forever.

In fact, every Christian has a divine mandate from God to fulfill in life. You do not exist for nothing because you were born for a purpose in life. God knew you as a person even before you were born; and He gave you a divine mandate from above to fulfill in life. That is why the Bible tells us in Romans 8:29, “For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.” Therefore, God the Almighty foreknew a Christian even before the foundation of the world and gave him a divine mandate to fulfill in life. Of course, every Christian is born to fulfill a divine mandate from God in life. A life that fails to fulfill God’s divine mandate is of course a life that is under the bondage of sin and Satan forever.

Apostle Paul made reference to this divine mandate from God when he said in Galatians 1:15 thus, “But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb and called me through His grace.” In fact, every Christian had been separated from his mother’s womb by God to fulfill a divine mandate in life. God knew you as a Christian even before you were conceived in your mother’s womb and gave you His divine mandate to fulfill in life. It is therefore a Christian’s duty to be focused by constantly looking up to God in fulfilling his divine mandate from the Lord in life. The fulfillment of God’s divine mandate is indeed God’s ultimate will for every Christian in life forever.

Daily Tip: A Christian should be focused by looking up to God in fulfilling his divine mandate from the Lord in life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: And say to Archippus, “Take heed to the ministry which you have received from the Lord, that you may fulfill it (Colossians 4:17).
