Grace and peace be unto you.
David served God’s purpose in his generation, then he died. (Acts 13:36).
What is God’s purpose for your life? Are you in alignment with it? King David made mistakes but he repented and God forgave him. Subsequently, he went on to accomplish his purpose. Scripture says, “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past” (Isaiah 43:18).
Perhaps you have strayed from God’s purpose and wondering if it is too late to repent and return. My friend, as long as you are alive and willing, it is not too late to accomplish your purpose. God is a God of many chances. He forgave Samson and his strength returned. As a result, he accomplished his purpose (Judges 16:17-30). God’s mercies are new every morning and he is waiting for your return. Angels will rejoice when you do (Luke 15:10).
God is reminding you that his gift and call are irrevocable. Forget the lies you have been told and reflect on his everlasting love. He said, “I have loved you with an everlasting love, I have drawn you with unfailing kindness” (Jeremiah 31:3).
Do you want to be remembered as someone who serve God’s purpose in your generation? Will you die before accomplishing your purpose? The second question is difficult to answer since you do not know your date of death, nonetheless, God knows. Today, he has allowed you to live, thereby giving you the opportunity to fully commit to him and accomplish your purpose. Will you recommit your life today?
Heavenly Father, thanks for your grace and mercy. Grant us the desire and wisdom to accomplish our divine purpose. In Jesus’ name, amen.
