WITNESSLINE DEVOTIONAL:  DAY ONE

WITNESSLINE DEVOTIONAL: DAY ONE

THEME:
DIVINE CALL AND RESPONSE

Jonah 1:1-2
Now the word of the LORD came to Jonah son of Amittai, saying,2“Get up! Go to the great city of Nineveh and preach against it, because its wickedness has come up before Me.”

MEDITATION

The purpose of a call from God is to serve other people. Jonah’s call is for the benefit of Nineveh. When he rejects God’s guidance, not only do the people he was called to serve languish, but the people surrounding him suffer. If we accept that we are all called to serve God in our work—which is probably different from Jonah’s work, but no less important to God —then we recognize that failing to serve God in our work also diminishes our communities.

4. Every good thing I wasn’t able to accomplish in the past years, beginning from today, Father, empower me to achieve them, in Jesus’ name.

5. By the power of the almighty God, my life, family, career and ministry shall not end this year, in Jesus’ name.

6. This year, everywhere I go, Lord! favour me and make me a record breaker for excellence, in Jesus’ name.

7. Begin to talk to God about those issues you desire to testify about even in the first few days of 2021. It is done!

“I know the plans I have in mind for you, declares the Lord; they are plans for peace, not disaster, to give you a future filled with hope.”
