COMMAND YOUR DAY
Wednesday, January 17, 2024
TOPIC: God Has A Purpose
MEMORY VERSE Matt. 24:14: “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations: and then shall the end come”.
Reading: Ex. 35:4-10; 36:3 -7
MESSAGE: God has a purpose for making all things new for those who are His children. God says that He wants to come near and dwell among His people as in the days of old. He wants you to prepare a place suitable for Him. This is the reason God is providing you with His abundance and a new life of good health and prosperity. God wanted the Israelites to build Him a Tabernacle in the wilderness. He instructed Moses to demand for all the provisions for the project from his people (Ex. 35: 4-10). From their hearts, they made a freewill offering of gold, silver, bronze etc. The Holy Spirit filled some of them with wisdom, understanding and skill to build a befitting place for the Lord (Ex. 35:30-35).
The people of Israel were not stingy toward God. From the abundance that God gave them when they left Egypt (Ex. 12: 29-36), they gave generously. They brought much more than enough; so much that Moses had to restrain them. The lesson here is that when God declares His abundance upon you, He wants you to enter into a covenant with Him. In return for His favour, He wants you to prepare a place for Him. David knew this secret, so he made great provisions for Solomon to build a Temple for God.
We are no longer required to build a Temple made of hands. God now desires a Temple in human beings. Paul therefore calls believers the Temple of God (1 Cor. 3:16-17). Peter refers to believers as living stones to be built up as spiritual houses (1 Pet. 2:5). This Temple of human beings is to cover all nations (Matt. 24:14; 28:20). This is how God intends to take the gospel to billions of people in the world. It is the end-time project. You can contribute to its fulfillment by partnering with us in the production and distribution of this family devotional
COMMAND YOUR DAY. This is God’s purpose for giving you a new life of abundance in the New Year.
