SCRIPTURE: For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell on sleep, and was laid unto his fathers, and saw corruption: Acts 13:36
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: When people know what to do because they see what you do, then you are a role model indeed to your generation.
The Will of God for His children is for them to exist as role models, pacesetters, front liners, or road pointers.
When people know what to do because they see what you do, then you are a role model indeed to your generation.
When people know the steps to take because they see the steps you are taking, when they know how to live or lead because of the way you live and lead, then you are a role model.
By the grace of God, my siblings worship in Dunamis International Gospel Centre.
One day, one of my biological sisters, who used to worship in our church before she got married came to me and requested for prayer. She said, ‘Sir, please pray for me. I want to marry.”
Then I asked her, “What kind of husband do you want?”
And she said, “Your type.”
Then I asked further, “In what regard?”
She said, “In every regard.”
And I said, “So, he will be a medical doctor then?” She said, “Yes sir.”
So, I prayed for her.
After one year, she called me and said, “Sir, the man has arrived. He is a medical doctor too. He loves God and is very passionate for God.”
The question is, “What is it that will make your own siblings follow your footsteps?”
You know the Bible says that a prophet is not without honour except in his own country, among his own relatives, and in his own house (Mark 6:4). But when those of your home begin to honour you and value what you carry, it is because God has helped you to be a role model.
Please make up your mind to model your generation with your quality and impactful living.
REMEMBER THIS: When people know what to do because they see what you do, then you are a role model indeed to your generation.
- Make up your mind to model your generation for God by your exemplary life.
- Follow the principles and practices of the Scripture, and live out the examples of impactful people.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask that You make my life a model, a symbol and portrait that people would follow to know You. Deliver me from “impactless” existence.

QUOTE: If a man spends all his energy working just for himself and his pocket without giving any aspect of his life, energy, or time to God’s work, when he grows old and dies to meet with God, what will he tell Him? What will he say he used his life to achieve? Culled from the book, “21 FOOLISH THINGS PEOPLE DO” by Dr Paul Enenche.
