Raising a people of purpose


Genesis 1: 1 – 3
The Word: Genesis 1: 1 – 3 (KJV)

1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

Dig Deeper:
Genesis 1: 4 -5  

And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

Think about it


Order simply means to have a structure. 
To have an arrangement, a sequence plan…. It means for things to be organised.
Structure is a good thing because it means: 
1. There is a plan and
2. You are working towards a desired goal.
Structure makes life predictable to a certain extent. Secular entities are called organisations because they are meant to be organised. The more organised they are, the more efficient they will be. 

God is a God of order and structure. Before he created man. he already made provision for everything man will need. He knew the end before starting the beginning. Everything was made in an orderly sequence with the final goal in mind. The more orderly and structured we become, the more successful we will be. But not only that, orderliness brings a sense of happiness and fulfillment with it. Today we ‘ll be praying about grace for orderliness in our lives, in the family, in the church, in our nation….

•    Thank God for another opportunity to pray
•    Thank God because he is a good God and has always been ordering your steps
•    Tell the Lord: grant me grace to put order in my life
•    Lord let my life experience divine order.
•    O Lord let my home / family also experience Divine order
•    Father please give me wisdom for sequencial order
•    Father I invite you into my daily schedule. Please take over
