GOD IS COMMlTTED TO FINANCING AND FUNDING YOUR PRIMARY PURPOSE.
Jeremiah l:S "Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. "
In this kingdom, there are primary purposes as well as secondary purposes. The commitment of God in the life of a man is always towards the primary purpose of God.
God will not fund and finance a secondary purpose to cancel His primary purpose in your life. The primary purposes of God are things connected to the program of God in a man's life, i.e. those things contributing to what God is doing in his generation. Every other things outside of that are secondary purposes.
He told Jeremiah, ..... I ordained you a prophet unto the nations. If Jeremiah bad become anything outside of being a prophet of God, he would have failed because that was his primary purpose. The resources and allocations of Heaven are always in that direction.
A lot of people face difficulties and struggle on the road of obedience because they have shifted their attention from the primary purpose and divine funding and commitment has also been withdrawn from their lives.
Joseph became the Prime Minister in Egypt but that was the secondary purpose. The primary purpose was to be a saviour and preserver oflsrael and he understood that. That was why he enjoyed the commitment of Heaven. He focused on fulfilling the primary purpose and God did not mind him enjoying the secondary purpose. I told you, every position and platform God gives in life comes with two things:INFLUENCE and AFFLUENCE. The influence is the primary purpose while the affluence is the secondary purpose. God will not mind you enjoying the affluence once the influence has been correctly utilized.
Beloved, what is the primary purpose of where you are right now? In that country, state or city, that place of authority, that position of power. Are you actually fulfilling the primary purpose of God there? You need to answer that question today before it is too late. May be you are like Esther who God has allowed into the kingdom for such a time as this. Esther almost missed it but the voice of the father in her life; Mordecai helped her and she got it right. She fulfilled the primary purpose of being a saviour of her people while enjoying the secondary purpose of being a queen in the land.
Jesus ow· Saviour knew what His primary purpose was, that is to die on the cross. Although, He did so many other things on His way to the primary purpose like healing the sick, raising the dead but His primary purpose drove Him until He fulfilled that. 1 want you to check your life and see where exactly you are compromising or giving less attention to your primary purpose and make necessary adjustments.
Till next week, go and win with Jesus.
