Not Until God is Finished
Daily Devotional for July 31st
I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. Revelation 1:9
Out of all the uncertainties in this life, there is one thing that is stedfast; and that is God purpose! God’s creation has remained until this day. The sun continues to shine without fail day after day. The earth continues to orbit the sun and rotate exactly the way God designed. The will of God is definitely unshakeable and unmovable. Not only are these things certain, but God’s purpose in your life is the same.
Many people go through their lives never knowing or walking in God’s plan for them. Not only do they miss out on the blessings of walking in God’s will, but miss out on God’s protection. Do you realize that walking in God’s will is the safest place for you to be? If you submit to God’s will, there is great protection. God’s purpose is the most important agenda in the world. God protects those who are fulfilling His will! He equips, empowers and sustains them as well.
Toward the end of his life, John the Revelator was a castaway on the Isle of Patmos. History reveals that John had survived a vat of boiling oil. Why such a miraculous deliverance? God was not finished with John! He still had one more book to write; the book of Revelation. Do you realize that if you live to fulfill God’s will, then you will not leave this world until God is finished with you? Peter and John were fulfilling God’s will by preaching this wonderful gospel. The wisest of Pharisees understood that if someone wrestles against those who are fulfilling God’s will, then they are fighting against God Himself. Acts 5:38-39
God has the final say over our lives. The doctors do not have that authority. There’s no sickness nor disease that has the authority over a child of God who is in the center of God’s will. Do you know God’s will for your life? Are you walking in it? If so, you are backed by the Almighty Himself. God’s commission is a place of safety. There’s not enough devils in hell to stop God’s will. It is God who will empower you! You are protected by the Greatest! It is God who will protect you! It is God who will sustain you. If you’re in God’s will, then take comfort today! You’ll not leave this world until you have finished your course!
