It is written of me – Part 3
Your make up was made to fit into your mandate. It was your assignment that determined how you were designed. Your purpose formed the basis for your heritage, your ethnic mix, colour of your skin, your language, height, physical features and your background. You were designed perfectly for your purpose. It was not a mistake that Jesus was born through the Virgin Mary. It had to be so, as it was preordained by God.
Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by prophet, saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. Matthew 1:22-23
He was born in Bethlehem of Judea, in a manger. King Herod sought to kill Him and Joseph had to take his family to Egypt all ordained by God.
And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken the Lord by the prophet, saying, out of Egypt have I called my son. Matthew 2:15
God is the Master Architect, ever true, ever faithful, ever righteous. Declaring the end from the beginning, His counsel must stand.
Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, my counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure: Isaiah 46:9-10
Jesus appeared with no other intention but to display His purpose, mandate and assignment. David declared by the spirit. Then said I, LO, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me, I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.
There is no other reason why you are here other than to be who He destined you to be. So, stop wasting your time. Apostle Paul admonished us to be like him.
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
Who being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Philippians 2:5-8.
There is no gain without pain; no harvest without labour. He got His pay. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:9-11
Can you pray today without the name of Jesus?
Let us stop being deceived by the enemy; there is a difference to your life. Jesus is our perfect example. You can also become an example to others. Abraham was called to be the father of nations Genesis 12:1. Moses’ mandate was to lead the people of Israel out of bondage and servitude (Exodus 3:9-10). Joshua’s mandate was to lead the people into their inheritance (Joshua 1:2). David was raised as king, and God established an everlasting covenant with him.
And thine house and thy kingdom shall be established forever before thee: thy throne shall be established forever. 2 Samuel 7:16
My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.
Once have I sworn by my holiness that I will not lie unto David.
His seed shall endure forever, and his throne as the sun before me.
It shall be established forever, and as a faithful witness in heaven. Selah. Psalms 89:34-37
The different prophets in the Old Testament fulfilled their mandates; those called unto Israel and those called unto Judah. Life is about making a difference. You cannot make a difference without believing in your uniqueness. Be who you are and don’t try to be somebody else.
