The Light Daily Devotional – God’s Investment
Focus: God’s Investment
WORD FOR TODAY
You must be aware of God’s investment in your life and strive to meet His standards. It is a curse for a man to squander God’s investment in his life!
“Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty works which were done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes.” (Matthew 11:21 NKJV)
Despite the miracles they witnessed, Chorazin and Bethsaida were cursed because they did not live up to God’s expectations for their lives. Woe to the man who wastes God’s precious investment in his life.
We might wonder why God couldn’t forgive Gehazi and heal him of the leprosy he contracted after collecting gifts from Naaman; after all, God had invested so much in him to do what he did. God insisted on Moses not entering the promised land, not because of the gravity of what he did, but because of the magnitude of God’s investment in his life. The miracles God did to bring the Israelites out of Egypt will not allow him to spear them when they exhibited unbelieve as they advance towards the promised land.
The Lord’s works in your life are deliberate because you were purchased with a price. You can’t afford to fail in God’s purpose. We must exercise caution in our actions and service to God in order to avoid causing the Lord to feel betrayed by His investment in our lives.
+ Are you living up to God’s expectations for your life?
Prayer: Lord! Your investment in my life will not be wasted, I will live up to your expectations in Jesus’ name. Amen!
Emphasis: The call before you now and always is to live up to God’s expectations in your life!
Have a Wonderful Week Ahead!
