DISCOVERING GOD’S PURPOSE FOR YOUR LIFE (Part 1)

DISCOVERING GOD’S PURPOSE FOR YOUR LIFE (Part 1)

Not only is God your creator, He is also the author or designer of your purpose in life. No one knows you inside out and what you are perfectly and specifically created, configured, or cut out for like God who created you. Before you were formed in the womb, God knew you and before you were born God has already separated, ordained, or appointed you for a specific purpose in life (Jer. 1:5, Gal. 1:15). Therefore, no one else besides God can fully reveal your purpose to you.

Until you seek and find God you might never fully understand your unique purpose in life because God is the author or designer of your purpose. However, you cannot find God if you don’t seek for Him with all your heart…

GOD’S PURPOSES FOR MANKIND

GOD’S PURPOSES FOR MANKIND

God created man in His image on purpose (Gen. 1:26-28). The first man, Adam, was fulfilling God’s purposes for creating him until God’s image and nature in him became corrupted and distorted through his disobedience to God’s express command.

All of us were born spiritually dead, being alienated from the life of God, and with a sin nature and thus with an inherent inability to fully understand and fulfil God’s purposes or intentions for creating us in His very image. Until the full revelation of God’s grace to mankind in and through the person of Jesus Christ no man was able to completely, consistently, or constantly walk in all the purposes for which God created man…

THE POWER OF PURPOSE

THE POWER OF PURPOSE

You are God’s masterpiece, fearfully and wonderfully formed, designed, wired, equipped, and packaged for a unique purpose, mission or assignment on earth. God has specially and specifically furnished and packaged you as His unique solution to a unique problem, as His unique provision to meet a unique need, and as His unique answer to a unique question in the world.

Therefore, despising or neglecting your God-ordained purpose is a great crime to humanity. It is a great deprivation or loss to the entire world! Living without purpose is a prodigal living! A life that is not committed to fulfilling God’s purpose is a wasted life – a great loss to God and humanity…

UNDERSTANDING YOUR PURPOSE

UNDERSTANDING YOUR PURPOSE

God deliberately or intentionally created you in Christ for good purposes. You are predestined by God to accomplish something good, great and definite on earth. It is simply a tragedy to live without any bearing, relation or reference to God’s purpose for your life.

A life not spent on God’s purpose is a total waste. It is a great loss both to God and humanity. Living without any sense or vision of your God-ordained purpose in life is a reckless or extravagant living. It is simply an abuse of life, a misuse of God’s resources and a waste of opportunities…

WHAT CAN YOU DIE FOR?

WHAT CAN YOU DIE FOR?

At first, Queen Esther did not realize that she was God’s chosen instrument of deliverance and preservation of her people in Babylon. When her uncle, Mordecai, commanded her to go in to the king to plead for the revocation of the written decree for the destruction of the Jews according to Haman’s evil plot, Esther was unwilling to risk or endanger her life for it was an offence punishable by death for anyone to go into the inner court of the king unless the person was invited.

Until Esther discovered her divine purpose of being in the palace, she was full of excuses, and she was greatly afraid of risking or losing her life or crown…

THE ROD OF GOD

THE ROD OF GOD

If Moses had gone to Egypt to challenge Pharaoh with a mindset that what he was holding in his hand was simply a common or an ordinary shepherd rod, he would have doubtlessly failed and died in Egypt. Similarly, if you fail to begin to think, speak, operate, walk, act, and live according to your new and divine spiritual position, status, authority and identity in Christ, there is no way you will be able to accomplish God’s purpose for your life.

Beloved, you are now a joint-heir with Christ. His authority, wisdom, power, wealth and grace are available to you (Rom. 8:17). You are presently seated in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus (Eph. 2:6). You are anointed and sealed with the Holy Spirit (2 Cor. 1:21-22)…
