GOD’S PURPOSE!

Oct 29, 2021

James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.

There is no shadow of turning with God. His yes is yes and that’s why you can trust, depend and lean on Him.

Romans 10:11-13 “Whoever believes in Him will not be put to shame.” For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

You shouldn’t call on Him as a practice of religion but with confidence and a strong belief that He will never put you to shame.

Psalms 65:2 O You who hear prayer, To You all flesh will come.

We serve a prayer-answering God.

Jeremiah 33:3 ‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’

There are things you do not know that God wants to do in your life.

He says ask and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you Matthew 7:7

When you desire and pray just believe and you will receive it because throughout the history in the scriptures nobody called on Him wholeheartedly and He failed to respond to their cry.

Psalms 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God;…

God is not a man that He may fail or disappoint you. Don’t fret for He will always do what He has spoken.

Psalms 34:5 They looked to Him and were radiant, And their faces were not ashamed.

Acts 6:8,15 And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and signs among the people. And all who sat in the council, looking steadfastly at him, saw his face as the face of an angel.

Stephen was stoned and Saul was there to witness( Acts 7 ).

Saul (the most notorious persecutor of the church) having been preached to by Stephen before his death could not escape light from heaven on his way to Damascus ( Acts 8 and 9 ).

We own nothing but we are stewards in this life.

Romans 14:12 So then each of us shall give an account of himself to God.

As believers, we are answerable to our God .

We are on probation time and we shall be no more soon or later because we have a heaven to go to.

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.

Being conscious of God’s purpose attracts Him into your affairs. Let it be your drive.

Peter had fished the whole night and caught nothing but when he gave his boat to Jesus to use, that was his turning point ( Mathew 4 ).

When you stay, abide and work within His purpose, you connect with the Holy Spirit who advances you for good.

John 10:30 I and My Father are one.”

That is the scripture that made the Jews pick up stones, they called it blasphemy for Jesus to raise Himself to the level of God yet that is the reality in the Spirit when we give our lives to Jesus.

The Pharisees understood it so well that whoever says is one with the Father claims a divine status which we have failed to understand as Christians today.

1 Corinthians 6:17 But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him.

As God is, so are we in this world (1 John 4:17).

Isaiah 46:8-9 “Remember this, and show yourselves men; Recall to mind, O you transgressors. Remember the former things of old, For I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like Me,

There is no impossibility with the one you are dealing with and you can not be still till you know He is God.

Isaiah 46:10 Declaring the end from the beginning, And from ancient times things that are not yet done, Saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, And I will do all My pleasure,’

That’s why He shows you the end from the beginning. He showed Joseph that he will be a king while he was still in Egypt.

He does all things after the counsel of His will ( Ephesians 1:11 ) and His counsel regarding your life will come to pass.

Isaiah 46:11 Calling a bird of prey from the east, The man who executes My counsel, from a far country. Indeed I have spoken it; I will also bring it to pass. I have purposed it; I will also do it.

God will fulfill the divine purpose for your life and ensure that his counsel stands.

You are one with God and whatever can not happen to Him must not happen to you.

Psalms 50:10 For every beast of the forest is Mine, And the cattle on a thousand hills.

God doesn’t entertain poverty. Whatever looks impossible must become possible because you are one with Him.

You only need to call according to His purpose to walk and fulfill destiny.

You are not your own. You will stand because you are called according to His purpose.

Acts 14:11 Now when the people saw what Paul had done, they raised their voices, saying in the Lycaonian language, “The gods have come down to us in the likeness of men!”

People will see God in you when you arrive. You only need to know who is with you and who you are.

God’s words will by no means pass away ( Matthew 24:35 ).

STAY BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED, WE LOVE YOU. PASTOR BEN OCHOLA.!
