The Light Daily Devotional – What Does God Call You?
Focus: What Does God Call You?
WORD FOR TODAY
Your consecration, lifestyle, orientation and purpose for a living make up your identity before God. Whatever God calls you is your real identity!
“But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?’ This is how it will be with anyone who stores up things for himself but is not rich toward God.” Luke 12:20-21 NIV
A man can hide from men but not from God. The fact that God knows the deepest secrets of men makes His verdict and submission over men authentic. When God calls a man a fool that is what he truly is. Irrespective of what people call you, be it great, genius, expert, wise or the likes, the fact remains that your real identity is with God.
From the parable of the rich fool, if we were to assess the man according to his status among his colleagues and competitors, we would have called him a genius; an economic genius for that matter but God called him a fool.
What makes him a fool is not the fact that he was wealthy but because he does not have a rich relationship with God. He didn’t acknowledge God in his pursuits. You will not place the right value on yourself until you see yourself the way God sees you.
+ What does God call you?
Prayer: Lord! I receive the grace to acknowledge you and honour you with my existence in Jesus name. Amen!
Emphasis: Your real-life and identity is subjected to how and what the Lord sees you to be!
Have a Graceful Week Ahead!
