Memorandum of God to You
Main Text: Genesis 1: 1-26
When you look around you today, when you look at the individuals’ life or family life and the world at large, it appears things are going haywire. It is getting darker in the world. Challenges are increasing day in, day out. People are going through family challenges, marital challenges, financial challenges, business challenges and what have you. Jobs are no longer there; people are going through emotional trauma, sicknesses and diseases. There are rumours of war; nations against nations. It appears something is missing. But things were not like this in the beginning when God created mankind. So what went wrong?
First and foremost, it is important to note that man was not the first creature God created; man was the last creature God created. That is to say, everything that man would ever need for sustenance had been made available before man was made, including his redemption package before the fall.
So, when God made man, He made him in His image and after His likeness. The ultimate plan of God for us is that every one of His children should be like Him. That is the only way we can fulfill destiny. In other words, it is those who have the character of God and His nature that can exercise spiritual authority and also enjoy divine provision and favour, regardless of circumstances and situations. But why do we still go through challenges, despite the fact that we have all those things?
In this message, you will get to know what God expects from us when we are going through any form of challenges in life. You will also get to know the reason God allows us to go through some circumstances and situations in the course of walk with Him. Therefore, based on scriptural references, all the above are connected and rooted in the eight memorandums from God you will find in this simple but profound message.
