Have you ever wondered what God wants you to do with your life?
Too often we get caught up in the demands of life and expectations of others and we fall short of our purpose.
If that’s you, I want to remind you that YOU were created for a unique purpose. Yes, you! Every one of us who is alive today—just as everyone whom we read about in the Bible—was put here to play a key role in the world.
You may read the Bible and think, “Those people were special.” Well they were, but so are you. They all also had their share of obstacles to overcome, because no one is immune to life’s challenges and no one gets a free ride.
Moses was no stranger to tough times.
Abraham took a few wrong turns.
King David certainly had his share of stumbles.
Everyone mentioned in the Bible had one thing in common with each other and with you, too—they had a God-given purpose they were destined to fulfill.
I’m sure many of the people in the Bible felt clueless from time to time but they embraced these three factors
God has gifted you very uniquely. The strengths He has given you are no accident and they are not by your doing. Stop downplaying what comes naturally to you and start embracing that God will use that strength for your good and His glory.
There’s a saying I love: “Circumstances don’t make a man, they reveal him.” God has you where you are for a reason. Stop thinking that everything needs to be perfect in order for you to fulfill your God-given purpose. If Jesus can begin his life in a stinky manger, you can be content with where God has you.
Their next step.
Most people become paralyzed by not knowing what to do to fulfill their God-given purpose. That’s because they are trying to look at the big picture and get everything figured out. If you’re anything like me, God can’t trust you with the big picture; you’ll just mess it up. Instead, He trusts us with just the next step. You already know your next step…start walking.
Rarely does God clunk us over the head and reveal our entire life purpose in one beautiful vision. Instead, He invites us to go on a journey. I love the way Proverbs 25:2 puts it: “It is the glory of God to conceal a matter and the glory of kings to search it out.”
Are you ready to go on a search? Your purpose is worth looking for.
