I believe that from our last discussion on this topic, you have been motivated to enquire about your purpose on the earth and how to walk in it. Someone rightly said that the world will stand for anyone who knows where he/she is going. This is because discovering purpose usually distinguishes a person from the crowd.
Discovering your purpose in life and walking in it brings you before great men. As the Bible says: A man’s gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men (Proverbs 18:16). In this second segment therefore, I will be teaching on how to discover purpose, ways through which ones purpose can be revealed and the benefit of discovering purpose.
HOW TO DISCOVER YOUR PURPOSE
The Principal and easiest way to discover the purpose is to ask the Manufacturer; God. No matter how a person “sees”, he cannot reveal a man’s purpose like God will. He is your Creator and the Bible says: Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure: (Isaiah 46:10) So, if you want to know why He made you and brought you into this world, then you must ask Him sincerely in prayers.
BUT HOW DOES GOD REVEALS PURPOSE TO US?
The Bible says: For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods. And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey (Matthew 25:14-15).
We have all being given several abilities to profit with. Discover yours and it would be not just for your profiting, but for the benefit of others also.
BENEFITS OF DISCOVERING AND FULFILLING PURPOSE
THINGS TO GUARD AGAINST IN PURSUIT OF PURPOSE
To truly guide against all of these and remain firm in God while pursuing purpose, you must be born again. This means accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and personal Saviour of your life. If you have not done this, or may have strayed from your decision to make Jesus the only Lord over your life, then you should say this prayer in faith:
Dear Lord Jesus, I come to You today. I believe You died and rose again for my sake. Forgive me of my sins, take over my life, make me Your child and let Your peace reign over my life. Thank you for saving me. Now I know I am born again!
Congratulations, you are now born again! I believe that you will begin to experience the reality of the price that Jesus paid for your sins at Calvary. All-round rest and peace are guaranteed you, in Jesus’ Name! Call or write, and share your testimonies with me through email@example.com, OR call 07026385437 and 08141320204.
