“Moses my servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, thou, and all this people, unto the land which I do give to them, even to the children of Israel.” Joshua 1:2 (KJV)

God is the creator of life. He does not only create life but also provides all the necessary resources to sustain it. Everything God has created is precious to Him. Thus, the life He has given us is a precious gift. It is so priceless that we cannot afford to buy it. Every life He creates is for a purpose. Therefore, the life we have is for a purpose. The primary purpose is to praise Him (Psalm 150:6).

Dear beloved, learn from the opening scripture of how God had to encourage Joshua to move on after the death of Moses. This should inform you that life is progressive and not static. God doesn’t want you to give up on life because of an incident that happened to you unexpectedly. Mourn over any unfortunate incident that happens to you and put it behind you (Matthew 5:4). Consequently, put on the garments of salvation, and move on to accomplish the task that God has set for you (Isaiah 61:10).

Don’t take your own life and go to hell; celebrate your life and use it to the glory of God. Hallelujah! Be an overcomer!

Prayer Point: Lord, give me more grace to keep making progress in life.
