*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*
*THE KINGDOM SEARCH (2)*
2 Tim 1:12 *For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.*
*Insight and Highlight.*
God does not make a mistake.
God's choice of you to do His work is an opportunity for you not to prove Him right (for God is never wrong), but that you may prove yourself worthy and prove the devil wrong.
Every choice God makes is to fulfil a divine purpose.John 6: 70
Judas was chosen for destruction. Somebody must be chosen to fulfil the prophecy of betrayal, John 17:12.
You can make God's choice of you worth its while if you work to make it worth its while.
You are called to fulfil a Divine assignment, to God's glory.
Today we can find solace in God's word. You also can be dependable in God’s service.
Solomon asked *"who can find a virtuous woman?*, Prov 31:10.
Solomon was asking if there is any one that can be found to be true of Godly and virtuous character? There are!
First, not to say there is none, there was Deborah, Esther to mention a few.
To be less gender specific, there was Paul who said he would rather be with Christ than live in the flesh to reap the fruit of his labor, Phlp 1:21-22.
Second, not to say there is none, Jesus asked a question in the parable of the profitable servant in Luke 12:42 *And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season?*
We find answer in Luke 12:43. Jesus says it is the servant whom when his master returns finds him doing what he was apportioned or delegated to do.
In Jesus’ words *Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.*
Will you be found in the Lord's service when He comes?
Nahum 1:7 *The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.*
*Call to Word action.*
Do you know whom you have believed? *".....for I know whom I have believed.*, 2 Tim 1:12.
*The Christian clarion duty.*
You can vindicate God's redemptive power over His decision to choose you by knowing who He is.
Lord, help me to intensify my belief in You. Let me continue to trust in You as l service You, in Jesus name.
Good morning all and have a blessed day today.
God bless you.
