Acts 26:16 (NIV®)
“Now get up and stand on your feet. I have appeared to you to appoint you as a servant and as a witness of what you have seen of me and what I will show you.”
God told Paul, “Today I’ve set you apart for My purposes.” He did it again and again in Paul’s life, and He will do it again and again in our lives. I don’t want my relationship with God to be just about settling my whereabouts for eternity. I want my life to matter for Him―every day of my life, every season of my life. You only get one chance to be a young person for the glory of God. You only get one chance to be a senior adult for the glory of God. Whatever life stage you’re in, there’s no do-over, no reset button. You only get one pass through this life for the glory of God. There is good news, however: Whatever stage you are in, you can determine to set the rest of your life apart for the purposes of God. That’s an amazing invitation.
Heavenly Father, I choose to seek Your purposes today and for the rest of my days in the earth. I want my life to matter to You. Help me to honor You in every area––my family, finances, workplace, and in all my relationships. May I live today for Your glory. In Jesus’ name, amen.
