Open Heaven, Friday 2 September 2022 TOPIC: Don’t Miss Your Purpose

“There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” – (Proverbs 14:12)

READ: Proverbs 3:5-8 (KJV)

Open Heaven, Friday 2 September 2022 Daily Devotional Message

Many people have lost the purpose of God for their lives. They are living below God’s standard and expectations for their lives. There is a method by which God operates, but as long as people keep choosing to do things in a worldly manner, they will never achieve the purpose of God for their lives.

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. – (Isaiah 55:8)

God does not think like man does. In fact, the Bible says His foolishness is wiser than men (1 Corinthians 1:25). You cannot achieve His purpose by trying to do things with worldly wisdom; you will end up missing it. Don’t try to copy others, copy the One who called you. Jesus achieved His purpose for coming to earth because He said;

… Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do; for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise. – (John 5:19 )

For young ministers of the gospel, don’t try to do things the way you’ve seen other popular ministers do things; your calling is not the same as theirs. When I was younger in ministry, there were people whose sermons were very mesmerizing. As interesting as their sermons were, I stayed put to the way God had taught me to preach; by His grace, people’s lives were transformed and the Church grew.

For those who were teaching deep theology, at the end of the sermon, when you ask the people what they learnt, they would just say, “Oh, Pastor was on fire today”; there was no real change in the lives of people. My beloved, don’t follow the crowd. Hebrews 12:2 says, “Looking unto Jesus the author and the finisher of our faith….”.

I see some music ministers; they start very well, singing great spiritual songs that attract the Spirit of God, but then they move on to those that will move the crowd and if you notice, their ministries begin to go down from there on. Be wise; if you want to have a long-lasting impact and eventually fulfil your destiny, do everything God’s way and not the way the world does it.

Father, give me the grace to never follow the world’s wisdom but Your way always, in Jesus’ name.

Jeremiah 37 – 40

Hymn 28 – When we walk with the Lord
