Open Heaven 29 May 2024 TOPIC: Discovering God’s Purpose For Your Life

MEMORISE: “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light;” – 1 Peter 2:9 (KJV)

READ: Ephesians 2:8-10 (KJV)

8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Job 13-16

Open Heaven 29 May 2024 MESSAGE

God has a purpose for everything He does. In Exodus 8:1, He said to Moses, “…Go unto Pharaoh, and say unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Let my people go, that they may serve me.” God’s reason for delivering the Israelites from bondage was so that they could serve and worship Him. Likewise, your salvation comes with a purpose, as the passage in today’s Bible reading reveals.

In Mark 1:40-45, a leper came to Jesus and said, “I know that You can make me clean if You are willing.” Jesus answered, “I am willing.” With one touch, the leper was cleansed, and he went everywhere testifying. God heals so that there can be testimonies. Also, anytime He sets captives free, it is for a purpose. In Mark 5:2-20, the madman of Gadara was delivered and was ready to follow Jesus everywhere, but Christ said No! He had been delivered for a purpose – to be a witness.

God also sets free for His name to be praised. In Mark 3:1-5, the man with the withered hand received his healing because Psalm 47:1 says, “O clap your hands, all ye people…”. A withered hand cannot be used to clap for God, so his hand was restored.

What is the purpose of a miracle? The Bible says in Acts 3:1-11 that when the lame man at the Beautiful Gate received his miracle, he started walking, leaping, and praising God. When you receive a miracle, it is so that you can begin to praise God. Also, miracles lead to the salvation of souls. In Acts 4:4, we see that Peter’s speech after healing the lame man led to five thousand people being saved! God does miracles to draw people to Himself.

In Luke 5:1-11, when Jesus stepped into Peter’s boat after he had laboured all night and caught nothing, he received a huge miracle that frightened him. The Lord said, “From now, you will no longer catch fish but men.” Peter got a breakthrough that drew him to serve God because the Bible says that he forsook all and followed Him.

You should ask yourself, “Why has God delivered me from darkness and kept me healthy? Why did He save my soul?” He did all these for a purpose. Have you discovered that purpose? Don’t just thank God for healing, salvation, deliverance, and provision; remember that He did everything for a purpose. You must continually seek to discover His purpose for your life and fulfil it.

Open Heaven 29 May 2024 PRAYER POINT

Lord, help me to discover Your purpose for my life and give me the grace to fulfil it.

Open Heaven 29 May 2024 HYMN 23 – Take My Life, And Let It Be

1 Take my life, and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee;
Take my moments and my days,
Let them flow in ceaseless praise,
Let them flow in ceaseless praise.

2 Take my hands, and let them move
At the impulse of Thy love;
Take my feet and let them be
Swift and beautiful for Thee,
Swift and beautiful for Thee.

3 Take my voice, and let me sing
Always, only, for my King;
Take my lips, and let them be
Filled with messages from Thee,
Filled with messages from Thee.

4 Take my silver and my gold;
Not a mite would I withhold;
Take my intellect, and use
Every power as Thou shalt choose,
Every power as Thou shalt choose.

5 Take my will, and make it Thine;
It shall be no longer mine.
Take my heart; it is Thine own;
It shall be Thy royal throne,
It shall be Thy royal throne.

6 Take my love; my Lord, I pour
At Thy feet its treasure-store.
Take myself, and I will be
Ever, only, all for Thee,
Ever, only, all for Thee.
