P is for Purpose

“May He grant you according to your heart’s desire, And fulfill all your purpose.” Psalms 20:4 NKJV

 “In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will,” Ephesians 1:11 NKJV

“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.”
Romans 8:28 NKJV 

We all have a purpose. God loves, corrects and directs us when we trust Him enabling us to walk into the talents and dreams that He instills within each of us.

Purpose means that we actually have a job to do or a role to fulfill according to God’s plan. This means that no matter what we “mess up” in life, God is not done with us and is not through with us. He can use us to serve some purpose in His Kingdom.

We are not here by accident and each have something to give no matter what the media, economy or naysayers may say. As people who have a role or a purpose in God’s great scheme we should act like the children of God that we are!  blsd dfly 4

God can turn life’s “losers” into winners. Only He can transform the addict into a counselor. God can allow you to lose it all so that you are a better steward when He later restores you. God can allow the tests you endure to become a testimony that not only glorifies Him, but inspires someone else to seek salvation.

Never doubt that God has a plan for you. God can use your past sins as learning blocks for spiritual growth. Your experiences and failures are opportunities that you can share to show not just how God got you through the storm but how God got you to a better outcome.

We can’t possibly imagine how God places each piece of the puzzle together. However we can trust that God has a purpose and a plan, especially when we (deceptively) feel like we have nothing at all.

God can take the least to bring about the most.  God spared a baby and made him deliverer of a nation. God took a shepherd boy and anointed him King. Moses and David were far from perfect, but God used them nonetheless.

We don’t have to be perfect to fulfill our purpose. When we make ourselves available, God will surely make us able! 

Heavenly Father, I pray you would align my heart’s desires with Your purpose for me. I pray for revelation that I would do the things You would have me to do. May I have faith and trust in You that I would not allow fear to rob me of Your purpose for my life. Thank you for these and other blessings in Jesus’ name, amen.

  1. So often people look for meaning, or purpose, in their lives. All along, God has had an answer for us in His plans. It is just something we need to learn…the answers of this world are “passing away” as are all the things of earth.

    But the Lord’s things are eternal and everlasting. They make for such a better “investment” of our effort and time!

    1. Very true.
      We tend to find our purpose (and contentment) when we focus on God’s plans for us and not conform to what modern society tells us we should do and think.

      Thanks for checking out this excerpt from my book! 🙂

      1. You are very welcome, Lilka! Funny how it seems that people look intently all around this world for answers, and if they are honest about it, they seem to find satisfaction in the Lord’s plan…
