Your Purpose

Verse of the Day:  Ephesians 2:10    

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Jesus Christ to do the good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

We were uniquely made by God and for God’s purpose. Nothing about you is an accident. God knew you before you were born and He put a desire in your heart for a purpose that He planned long ago. You are never too young or too old to find your purpose in life. Step out in faith and ask God for guidance and direction to fulfilling your God given dreams. Don’t let doubt or the devil keep you from being all you can be for the Lord.

God Can Turn It Around

Genesis 50 20

Verse of the Day:  Genesis 50:20

You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good, to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.

This is one of my favorite Bible verses because it reminds me that no matter what the devil tries to use to harm us God can turn it around and it use it for good. God can use your past to help others and your deepest pain can be used to set your calling in motion. God has a plan and a purpose for your life so no matter you’ve been through, what’s been done to you or what you’ve done God can still use you for His purpose. Trust in God and don’t give up.

Same Goal

Acts 20 24

Verse of the Day:  Acts 20:24

However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.

God has given each of us different gifts to be used for His purpose. We should be pleased with what we’ve been given and use these gifts to the best of our ability. No matter what happens in the world around us we cannot let it shake our faith, become fearful or allow it to change our purpose. We are to remain faithful to the very end in testifying to the grace, love, and mercy of God and the salvation He offers to all people. We each may have a different gift and a different task but the goal is the same for all of us, to use our gifts, to finish the race and to complete the task we’ve been assigned by God.

Instruments for Special Purposes

2 Timothy 2 21 (2)

 

Verse of the Day:  2 Timothy 2:21

Those who cleanse themselves from the latter will be instruments for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.

No matter what you’ve done in the past, no matter how broken you were God can still use you for His special purposes. When you come to God and turn away from sin you are forgiven and made clean. Your sins have been expunged by the blood of Jesus Christ. You are a new creation and God loves you and He has a purpose for your life. Get right with God, turn away from sin and prepare yourself to do God’s work for only He can turn your mess into a message. Thank God for forgiving you and let go of your past so you can focus on the present and on the future that God has planned for you.

Don’t Wait for Perfect Conditions

Ecclesiastes 11 4

Verse of the Day:  Ecclesiastes 11:4

Those who watch the wind blow will never sow, and those who observe the clouds will never reap.

If you’re waiting for perfect conditions like the right time, the right people, the right job, the right “whatever” to start living your God given dreams (your purpose) you’ll never get started. Don’t be afraid, God is with you and He will equip you with every good thing you need to do His will. It’s okay to start small, at least you’ve started to sow and it’s okay to make mistakes, it shows you’re trying and not just “watching the wind blow”.  Don’t wait for “perfect conditions”, start with what you know now and with what you have now. Let go of fear, step out in faith and trust God to make a way.

To Him I Belong

Jeremiah 10 23

 

Verse of the Day:  Jeremiah 10:23

Lord, I know that people’s lives are not their own; it is not for them to direct their steps.

 

The devil tries to trick you into thinking “this is my life and I can do what I want with it”. That kind of thinking only leads to sin and we know that the devil is a liar. The truth is your life is not your own, you belong to God. When you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior you become a new creation. God has a plan for your life and when you surrender your life to Him, He will direct your steps.

Be the Best You

Romans 9 20.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Romans 9:20

But who are you, a human being, to talk back to God? “Shall what is formed say to the one who formed it, ‘Why did you make me like this?’”

 

We are all unique, one of a kind creations. We are fearfully and wonderfully made. We each have been given different gifts so stop comparing yourself to other people and trust that God made you with a special purpose in mind. Love yourself the way God loves you and be the best you, you can be.  “A flower does not think of competing with the next flower, it just blooms.” – Unknown

You Are Not Alone

2 Timothy 4 17

 

Verse of the Day:  2 Timothy 4:17

But the Lord stood by me and gave me strength

 

Doing the will of God can at times be lonely road.  Not everyone will understand or support what you are doing.  That’s why it’s important to surround yourself with likeminded people. Even so, there may be times when you still feel alone and it may feel like everyone has deserted you. In these moments you must remember that you are not alone. The Lord is with you, He is on your side and He will give you the strength to carry out His plan.
