Happy New Day dearly beloved.
It’s been an adventure in light in our fellowship on this particular discussion. Part 6 was focused on how to choose a life partner. We will continue a little on that today and we trust God for more revelation in the coming days.
The choice of a life partner is one of the greatest choices a man can make in his life. This choice can determine your destination in life, either success or failure.
I pray for someone reading this. You will not make a wrong marital choice in Jesus name and if you have made such choices, the mercy of God will speak over your marriage in Jesus name.
In part 6, I highlighted some factors that should be considered while trusting God for a good marriage.
I will dig deeper into the subject of purpose in this episode.
You must discover your purpose before you go into marriage. Marriage is a purpose journey. It is a platform to fulfil purpose in a grand style. It is more than a platform for sex and procreation. It is a place to enter into the fullness of what God has called you to be.
The woman is called a helper by God, the same name that God called the Holy Ghost. So it means that for you to understand the ideal role of a woman in your life you have to understand the role of the Holy Spirit.
Only a woman that has an intimate relationship with the Holy Spirit can fully enter into her purpose because the Holy Spirit is her perfect example in her role as a helper.
That is why the Bible says, “He who finds a wife finds a good thing, And obtains favor from the LORD.”
Proverbs 18:22 NKJV
Getting a good wife is like receiving the Holy Spirit. What you ordered for was a wife, what you got was a wife with several packages such as HELP, SUPPORT, FAVOUR, GOODNESS, etc
When I was about getting married, the Lord said to me, “I am about to increase your strength.” I was wondering what He meant and He replied with this scripture:
“How could one chase a thousand, And two put ten thousand to flight, Unless their Rock had sold them, And the LORD had surrendered them?”
Deuteronomy 32:30 NKJV
If you marry the gift from God, you have just moved from crawling to flying. Everything about me went on the increase after marriage.
I PRAY FOR SOMEONE READING THIS, THE LORD WILL SETTLE YOU MARITALLY IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
One of the major purposes of marriage is to help those involved fulfil their purpose on earth.
HOW DO I DISCOVER MY PURPOSE
1. Ask your manufacturer – The manufacturer made you, so He knows why He made you. God is your manufacturer, Ask him.
“‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’”
Jeremiah 33:3 NKJV
I cried to God, “Father, you created me, you sent me here, show me why.” I prayed, and He answered me.
He will answer you too. Remember, He promised us that, “Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.”
I John 5:14 NKJV
This prayer is according to His will because it is rooted in the word that we should ask Him and He will show us.
2. Check the manual of the manufacturer – It takes studying the manual of the manufacturer for you to avoid malfunctioning in your functions. If you buy a new appliance, you will check the manual to see how to use it. The BIBLE is the manual of your manufacturer – God. Check it, read it, eat it, digest it until you find your destiny.
Jesus found His destiny by reading it:
“And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written: “The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed;”
Luke 4:17-18 NKJV
Read the Bible and you will see your mandate there. I saw mine there too. You don’t have to be called to be a pastor to see your purpose in the Bible. It is a destiny manual for every profession. Cry to God. Father show me.
3. Check what He deposits inside of you – Every appliance has inbuilt features to suit its purpose. If you buy a new phone, the phone has some inbuilt abilities that some other phones don’t have. Some phones have Face ID while some don’t have but they only have thump ID. So this inbuilt features gives us a clue as to why it was made.
There are gifts, talents, abilities, and capacities in you that you didn’t learn. You just have them. God deposited them in you to suit the purpose for which you are created.
From childhood, He gave me speaking because He called me to be a preacher and I will need the gift of communication.
Well, I might have missed it and done another kind of speaking but He guided me into His exact purpose for my life.
I will explain in the coming episodes on how to channel your talents to your exact purpose.
