SCRIPTURE: And it came to pass, when the evil spirit from God was upon Saul, that David took an harp, and played with his hand: so Saul was refreshed, and was well, and the evil spirit departed from him. 1 Samuel 16:23.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Your love determines your lift. What you love doing connects you to your lift in life.
Affection is a major key or pointer to purpose and destiny. What you love doing is a pointer to what you will live doing.
For example, David was a man who loved worshipping God. David loved worship until he played the instrument to the highest level in Israel. When they were looking for the best instrumentalist in Israel who could play for King Saul to be refreshed, they looked for David. David was indisputably the best instrumentalist in the land at that time (1 Samuel 16:17-23).
David loved worship to the point of inventing a worship equipment.
1 Chronicles 23:5 says:
Moreover four thousand were porters; and four thousand praised the Lord with the instruments which I made, said David, to praise therewith.
As a person, I love worshipping God. So, God has given me the grace to worship Him in the private, to play instruments, to receive and write songs, to sing songs and to coordinate the choir when necessary.
David’s love for worship was his link to the palace. You see, your love determines your lift. What you love doing connects you to your lift in life.
Now, what does love or affection mean?
Affection, in this context, refers to what you love doing for the joy it brings to you.
Whatever turns on the tap of your excitement is your real affection. There is a connection between your excitement and your assignment. When you follow your excitement into your assignment, you connect your consignment. But that assignment that is not your excitement can lead you to harassment. That will not be your portion in Jesus Name.
You do not need to look too far. Ask yourself: “What is it that turns on the tap of my joy?” That is the secret of your destiny fulfilment.
REMEMBER THIS: Your love determines your lift. What you love doing connects you to your lift in life.
1. Identify what you are passionate about.
2. Follow that passion into your destiny.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask that You help me identify my passion in life. I receive the grace to follow that passion to my destiny, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
