HOW TO DISCOVER GOD’S PURPOSE FOR YOUR LIFE
Hebrews 10 vs
»»7. Then I said, Behold, here I am, coming to do Your will, O God —[to fulfill] what is written of Me in the volume of the Book. –[AMP] «« ||
SOMEONE may ask, “How can I discover my God-given purpose on earth? I perceive this as one of the vital questions to ask in life. Jesus said His sheep do hear His voice; meaning He talks to the sheep. He said in Matthew 7: 7-8 “ Keep on asking and it will be given you; keep on seeking and you will find;” So you keep asking God in prayer and seek for His direction till you know it. Keep searching by the Holy SPIRIT IN you. The Holy Spirit bears witness with our spirit (Romans 8:16). For there is a spirit in man and the inspiration of the Almighty gives him understanding (Job 32:8).
God has diverse ways to reveal your purpose. It can be through His word, anointed prophets. He may also help you to discover through inner intuitions and impressions, visions, dreams, talents, gifting or even your current profession. The best prayer to engage in discovering your purpose is “Please Heavenly Father, lead and guide me into the purpose for which you created me. Help me make decisions and choices which are in line with Your purpose for my life”. Another one is “Lord let Your will be done in my life”.
As you pray, the Spirit will teach and show you things concerning your life in diverse ways and happenings. When you know it you will know deep within your heart that this is what you are actually born to do. I can’t tell you the time frame to get the answer but I can assure you that God will tell or show you. However, do not quit whatever you are doing now. But if you are not fulfilled in what you are doing now it may be that you are not found in God’s purpose for your life.
Also, sometimes, God will let you start from somewhere before He positions you into your purpose. Thus, He can PREPARE you from “somewhere” before He places you in your real purpose. For instance Peter, Andrew, James , John were fishermen before Christ showed them their purpose. Beloved, you are made for a purpose. Set your heart and “uncover” what is meant for your greatness. One great man said, “You were born original, don’t die being a photocopy”.The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always.
My Father and my Maker, I thank You for Your faithfulness revealed to me from Your word. I receive inspiration from Your Spirit now concerning my purpose on earth. Continue to guide me to walk in your purpose for my life accordingly in Jesus Name. Amen!
Enjoy A Blessed Sunday!
