Prayer: Lord of the harvest, please grant me grace to enforce my fruitfulness today through the application of these pillars in Jesus Name. Amen.
(Jeremiah 29:11) I know the thought that I have towards you. Thought of good and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
Purpose is the exact reason for which anything was made. Purpose is the reason for existence. Purpose is God’s intent for your life. It is to live in accordance with the mind of God towards you. You cannot effectively release your potential, if you do not discover God’s purpose for your life. The greatest tragedy in life is to live without purpose. To be without purpose is to live aimless. Your potential and your purpose are perfectly related because God never requires you to do or be something that is not part of His purpose. When there is awareness of purpose, there is impetus to pursue and achieve set goals. It is your responsibility to discover it.
How to discover purpose:
- By Discovering God: The direction of a plane is not in plane’s decision, but in the decision and direction of the pilot. God holds the compass of your life. He is the pilot. He determines the direction of your life. Your purpose in life is not your decision, but your discovery. For you to discover your purpose, you must discover God first. You cannot discover your purpose without discovering God.
- By Discovering Yourself: You will become on the outside, what you believe on the inside. To discover purpose, you must discover yourself, who you are and what you are capable of doing. Evaluate and do an appraisal of yourself. What do you have passion for? What are you capable of doing? What are you good at? These are pointers to your purpose. Also, what you hate is a clue to what God wants you to fix. Jesus came in the volume of the book that was written about Him. Discover yours.
- By Service: Serving is the surest way to get connected with purpose. Purpose is discovered in the place of service. Until God finds you in the place of service, you will not find purpose for living. To avoid service is to be far from discovery of purpose. If you want to discover purpose, locate a department and get committed. As you serve, the purpose of your creation will be made manifest.
- By Focus and Determination: You cannot fulfill purpose without focus and determination. Focus is the act of concentrating your interest or activity on something. For your to concentrate on your interest, you must, by default, ignore many other things. Focus and determination occurs when you say Yes to one option and No to all other options. Without God, we serve nothing else.
Meditation: You cannot discover your purpose without discovering God. You will become on the outside, what you believe on the inside.
