SCRIPTURE: Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed anything, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things; Acts 17:25
THOUGHT FOR THE THING: When the purpose of life is not understood, life ends with regrets.
The worst thing that can happen to anyone is living and not knowing the reason for life. Many people sleep and wake up every morning to no purpose. This is a tragedy of life. When the purpose of life is not understood, life ends with regrets. That will not be your portion, in Jesus’ Name.
Now, what is life all about? One fact about life is that LIFE IS A GIFT.
Our anchor Scripture makes it clear that it is God who gives life (Acts 17:25). This means, life is a gift, a gift from God. No one decided to be born. God gives life to all.
Now, one implication of life being a gift is that life must be lived to the pleasure of the Giver. If life is a gift, then it must be lived to the pleasure of the Giver.
Think about this: Will you be happy if you bought an expensive suit and gave it to someone and you discovered the suit being used as a rag in his house? That could be painful! This is exactly how the Almighty God feels when a person to whom He gave life chokes that life with alcohol, squanders it in prostitution, or shamelessly exposes and advertises the flesh thereby ushering other people to destruction. There are many people who make God regret whenever He looks at the way they live their lives.
The question is, when God looks at your life, is He glad that He made you or He is sad that He made you? (Genesis 6:5-6).
I counsel you to live your life to the pleasure of the Giver.
Remember this: When the purpose of life is not understood, life ends with regrets.
1. Examine your life carefully. Do you think God is happy with the way you are living now?
2. Make amends where necessary.
3. Ask God to have His Way in your life.
PRAYER: Lord, thank You for the gift of life. I surrender my all to You and ask that You enforce Your perfect Will in my life, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
