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 and what you are perfectly and specifically created, loaded, configured, or cut out for as 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…

GOD’S PURPOSES FOR MANKIND

GOD’S PURPOSES FOR MANKIND

It is absolutely impossible for any natural man, who is without God’s nature, life and Spirit, to fully comprehend and fulfil God’s purposes, for “the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” (1 Cor. 2:14 NKJV).

It is only the new man or creation in Christ who can fully discover, understand and accomplish all of God’s purposes for creating mankind in His image. The divine potential or capacity to fulfil God’s purposes that the human race lost in and through Adam is now fully restored in and through Christ Jesus to all those who put their faith in Him…

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!

UNDERSTANDING YOUR PURPOSE

UNDERSTANDING YOUR PURPOSE

Collins English Dictionary defines the word “purpose” as “the reason for which anything is done, created, or exists; a fixed design, outcome, or idea that is the object of an action or other effort; fixed intention in doing something.”

God is a God of purpose. He does nothing without a specific purpose or fixed intention. Your birth was neither a mistake nor mishap notwithstanding the circumstances surrounding your birth. You are not a biological accident but a product of purpose!

God created you on purpose, with a purpose, and for a purpose. God has a glorious purpose or fixed intention for creating and saving you…

WHAT CAN YOU DIE FOR?

WHAT CAN YOU DIE FOR?

During the Jews’ seventy years exile in Babylon, Haman wittingly plotted to exterminate all the Jews in Babylon and all its provinces on a set date. He maneuvered to get King Ahasuerus’ approval.

When the Jews got the news of Haman’s evil plot against them, they all began to mourn, weep, and fast, laying in sackcloth and ashes in every province where the king’s decree was read. But unknowing to them, God had already put everything in place to thwart and defeat Haman’s plot and to preserve and protect His people…

THE ROD OF GOD

THE ROD OF GOD

Before Moses cast his rod on the ground before God, it was a mere dry wood, staff or stick with which he tended the flock of his father-in-law. However, after Moses had willingly surrendered his rod to God, it ceased to be an ordinary rod or staff to Moses.

Although God continued to refer to it as Moses’ rod, yet Moses never for once called it his rod after his dramatic encounter with God. Apparently, Moses had completely and permanently relinquished any claim or right he had to his rod. Therefore, he rightly called it “the rod of God.” What a lesson for us today!
