In HIS Presence


Read: Jeremiah 1:4-10 

Meditation verse: 

“Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you; before you were born, I sanctified  you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations” (Jeremiah 1:5) 

One of the main reasons why people go through midlife crisis is because they  have lived outside the purpose for which they were created. Boyd Bailey says a  midlife crisis comes from selfish living and from living outside God’s plan for your  life. You can however make midlife the best season of your life by embracing  your God given purpose and letting it drive your life. Your Purpose in life is what  you were made for. It is your God-ordained assignment here on earth. God has  put inside you, everything you need to accomplish your purpose. You are meant  to discover and accomplish it. Here are ten things your purpose will help you  achieve in midlife: 

Your life’s purpose will inspire a renewed sense of hope and excitement in you. 

It will keep you motivated and energized, giving you something to look forward  to each day 

It will spark off your creative juices. There are no limitations to what one can  accomplish in the place of his or her assignment, because you are doing work  that you were created for. 

It will enable you create a new path in career and life. Many people resign from  their jobs and reconnect with their true purpose in midlife.  

It will enable you create multiple sources of income.  

It will serve as a medium for you to serve others, thereby helping you create  impact and influence. 

It will enable you to live an authentic life, because it is what you were made for. 

It will help you answer the big question of life: who am I? This is the question of  your identity, and a lot of people are lost because they do not know who they  are. Most of the evil in the world today are supercharged by individuals with  little or no connection to a meaningful purpose in life. These are lost and  wandering souls.  

It will help you build and leave a legacy behind. 

Lastly, fulfilling your life purpose will prepare you for eternity because you will  stand before the Judge when all is said and done and give an account of your life  here on earth and how you used the gifts and talents you were given.


IN HIS PRESENCE is written by Oke Chinye

Have you asked Jesus Christ to come into your heart?

He says in Mathew 11:28, “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” He longs to give you rest.

Would you like to do so now? Here’s a prayer you can say:

Dear Jesus, I believe that You died to save me from all my sins. Today, I invite you into my heart and I accept you as my Lord and Saviour. Please forgive all my sins and help me to live my life for You.

If you prayed this prayer, send me an email at rockteachingministry@gmail.com. I would love to pray with you personally and send you a copy of my book; ‘Living the Life’ to encourage you as you begin your new life in Christ.

I look forward to hearing from you.
