I want you to begin to think of yourself not just as a biological creation of a man and a woman sleeping together, but as a product of divine purpose. You must see yourself as a divine purpose walking in the flesh and until you fully discover, pursue and fulfil that purpose, you are not totally redeemed. That is what Christianity is all about.
Christianity is not just about deliverance from sin. Deliverance from sin is a means to an end. It is to lead us into the full redemption of our purpose on the earth. We must live out in the flesh the full worth of our purpose on the earth.
You are the redeemed from sin so that your calling and your purpose can be redeemed unto God. The Amplified Bible renders verse 18 thus: “[But what of that?] For I consider that the sufferings of this present time (this present life) are not worth being compared with the glory that is about to be revealed to us and in us and for us and conferred on us.”
This refers to the glory of walking in the full worth of your purpose on the earth. God said to Jeremiah: "Before I formed you, I knew you and ordained you a prophet to the nations". At that time, he was a shepherd boy. There was a glory not on him yet even if he was the best shepherd boy. The prophetic destiny would confer that glory on him. That is the full glory; the kind of glory that this verse is referring to.There is a dimension of glory that will not come to you because of your career, beauty, or connection. It is simply going to come to you because of your calling. That is your true divine identity to this generation.
PRAYER: Lord, I pray for divine enablement to live out my ordained destiny and purpose of creation in Jesus’ name. Amen!
