As the people of God gather today, may people leave different than they came. As they leave the meeting, may they say, “I will never be the same again because of the power of the risen Christ that has changed me”. “He jumped to his feet and walked. The man went into the Temple with them, walking back and forth, dancing and praising God. Everybody there saw him walking around and praising God. They recognized him as the one who sat begging at the Temple’s Gate Beautiful and rubbed their eyes, astonished, scarcely believing what they were seeing.” (Acts 3:8-10, Msg)
People, time and circumstances seem to be working against destiny for many. BUT ask Joseph, “Did God bring you to purpose? And when He finally did, was He too late?” Ask David, “Did personalities keep you down so that your life did not fulfill God’s purpose?” The deciding factor is this: Is God our goal? That is the only goal God will guarantee. To have God as our goal means that we want to possess Him, to know Him, to walk with Him more than anything. To have God as our goal means that we will know Him and we will know Him by His Word getting into us and walking by that Word. If we know Him we will allow Him to bring us into the likeness of His Son. “That was then and this is now.” True, BUT God had an unpredictable habit of manifesting Himself miraculously then and…. His habits have not changed NOW!
