DOUBLE DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL

GEN. 2:15 -16
WHAT SERVICES CAN YOU RENDER TO YOUR GENERATION❓
Every man is where he is by God’s eternal purpose. The reason God places man where He decides is for man to be instrument of life, progress and encouragement in his environment. If man resolves otherwise, God’s purpose can be delayed but cannot be thwarted, though man may harm himself by so doing.
In the text above, God placed Adam in a garden and directed him on what to do, namely, dress the garden, keep the garden and He rewarded his labour. This is the principle of life – work and reward.
David served his generation by the will of God. Some serve through self-will (selfishness), others serve the devil by destruction of lives, properties and reeling pains and misery on their environments and themselves.
When we yield ourselves as instrument of righteousness, certain things will result:
* Our generation will be better than we met it.
* People will be happy to meet us.
* Live will be secured.
* Properties will be secured as well.
* We will see our services as privileges.
* Many will seek God.
* God will be happy for a life well lived.
The story of Jean Basquiat, a black American Artist, will always come to mind. Highly talented and passionate on his calling but due to carelessness and misplacement of priorities, he died a miserable death as a drug addict in his twenties. After 29 years of his death, one of his artworks was sold for over $50 billion in 2017; in the previous year 2016, a similar artwork of his garnered about $25 billion purchased by an Asian business tycoon. Mr Jean lived a self-willed life. His lifestyles hurt him but God’s word was unscathed. The choices is ours.
If we yield ourselves as instruments of righteousness, our world will be better.
Lord, help me to be an instrument of righteousness and progress. Amen.
BIBLE READING FOR THE YEAR:
Job 5 -7; 1 Corinthians 3
