MFM Daily Devotional 26 May 2023 MESSAGE
There is quite a lot to learn from Jonathan, a man with a heart of gold. Today, we want to explore another area of his life that can be of great benefit to us. Jonathan understood his destiny and was willing to operate there, He knew so well that God had not ordained him to be the next king after Saul, his father. He knew that according to divine design, David had been anointed king and there was nothing anyone could do to reverse that.
He understood his place and allocation in life and was not afraid to operate there. He was not timid of being a second in command”…and thou shalt be king over Israel, and I shall be next unto thee; and that also Saul my father knoweth” (I Samuel 23:17). To him, being a king and the first in command is not a do or die affair. He was not intoxicated about being in power. Rather, he just wanted to fulfil his own calling as designed by his maker.
In life, we cannot all be the first in rank. Everyone cannot be president. Even in our body, there is the head, leg, eyes and so on. If all the body parts are craving to be the head, where is the heart that will pump the blood to make the head a living head? By divine design, some have been designed to be the first in rank, while others have been designed to be second or third in rank. Some have been created to be the neck that will support the head. The most important thing is for us to find out what God, the master planner, has earmarked for us in life and operates there.
Beloved, not all will be kings in physical position, but you can enthrone and crown yourself a king in the place of your divine destiny if you operate well. Have you found out who you are? Do you know your divine destiny? I admonish you to seek the face of God today, so that you stop struggling, trying to be who God has not created you to be. Correctly position yourself and see how life can be rewarding rather than frustrating.
