I’ve written about purpose dozens of times. . .but I feel impressed to discuss it again. . .from a little different perspective.
Dictionary.com defines purpose as:
the reason for which something exists or is done, made, used, etc.
an intended or desired result; end; aim; goal.
God Has A Purpose For Your Life.
Without your purpose identified firmly in your mind, you will wander through life, never quite feeling that you’re “in the flow.”
And let me be clear, your PURPOSE may have nothing to do with how you make money (your job)…because you can make MONEY in many ways.. that may not be directly related to your purpose . . . although you can still glorify God while doing your job.
Purpose gives meaning to WHY you’re doing what you’re doing.
There are seven questions that help determine where you are with regard to knowing and walking in your purpose.
1. Are You Willing And Ready To Change?
The real question is. . .are you willing to change regardless of what other people think or the consequences?
Exodus 2:14 in the New Living Translation says:
“The man replied, “Who appointed you to be our prince and judge? Are you going to kill me as you killed that Egyptian yesterday?” Then Moses was afraid, thinking, “Everyone knows what I did.”
Moses wanted to change the plight of the children of Israel. In a fit of moral outrage he slayed an Egyptian who was beating an Israelite.
As he began to fully realize the implications of his actions. . .he knew things were going to change.
