If you woke up this morning, it means that God is not done with you yet.
For those of you who have trusted Jesus Christ as Savior, you are no longer of this world. Your purpose is now a Kingdom-purpose. You see through the lense of eternity, knowing that every day is a gift from God to be salt and light to a dark world.
Where do you find yourself today? At work? In the home? Interacting with friends, or maybe difficult people?
No matter where you find yourself, rest assured your identity is built on none other than Jesus Christ. He has freed you from the power of sin so that you can now live for Him and His glory. And since you woke up this morning, He is not done with you.
In Acts 8, Philip was told by an angel of the Lord to journey south. Philip obeyed. "And the Spirit said to Philip, "Go over and join this chariot." So Philip ran to [the eunuch] and heard him reading Isaiah the prophet and asked, "Do you understand what you are reading?" And he said, "How can I, unless someone guides me?"'
Like Philip, who sought the Lord and obeyed the Spirit, God has a purpose for you today. Ask Him what He has for you. Tell Him that you are willing to go where He leads. He is not done with you yet.
