|Doing God's Project by kpakpandoN(m): 10:30am On Jul 14, 2016|
One truth that children of God must embrace is that we are partners with God in His divine project. God created man in His image, by implication; man is superior to all other creation and is lord over the universe. God prepared man to occupy a position of junior partner with Him. This is why after He had created the Heaven and the earth and all that were in the earth, He put man in charge of naming, keeping and dressing them. The Bible says:
"And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof." Genesis 2:19
So, man had been charged with the responsibility of doing God's project from the beginning and up till date, God has not withdrawn this responsibility from man, although at times, man fails to live up to God's expectation. I pray for someone reading this devotional; you will from now on live according to God's expectation concerning Kingdom projects in Jesus' name.
In Exodus 25:1-9, the Lord commanded Moses to take offerings from the children of Israel for the building of the Tabernacle. He told them to bring the offering willingly and joyfully. God is still making demands on us for His projects; missionary, infrastructural or administrative. It is left to us to respond according to our ability. One other truth we must learn from the story of the children of Israel is that everything God demanded from them was provided to them by God Himself. When the children of Israel were leaving Egypt, the Lord caused the Egyptians to send them away in a hurry with the riches of the land. The Bible says:
"And the children of Israel did according to the word of Moses; and they borrowed of the Egyptians jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment: And the Lord gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they lent unto them such things as they required. And they spoiled the Egyptians." Exodus 12:35-36
Another lesson we must learn from this is that whatever blessing we are blessed with has a reason and the reason primarily is for Kingdom projects. Therefore, I advise someone reading this devotional today to find out the areas where God's project needs his or her urgent attention and go ahead to meet that need. Written by Pastor E.A. Adeboye.
