Purpose

You were created with a purpose, for a purpose, on purpose.

Don’t allow anyone or anything stop you from accomplishing God’s will.

What God has given you will bless you and others.

What God brings you through will bless you and others.

Called…

Focus on what God called you to do and not what you want Him to do.

Many people today are judged by their status through social media. Likes, shares, and views provide a sense of approval, appreciation, and acceptance. Some spend their days and nights watching their smartphones and computers, waiting for positive affirmation. But as we’re surrounded by a society which desires such attention, we cannot forget the only ‘like’ that matters.

In Matthew 25:14-30, Jesus shares a parable about a man traveling into a far country. He provided different talents to his servants. One servant received five talents. Another receive two. Then another one. Each servant received enough talents according to his ability.

After the man had departed, the servants with five and two talents traded and doubled what they received. However, the servant who received one talent placed his talent in the earth.

In Full Bloom

Bloom where you’re planted.

Many times we’re so anxious to reach our Point B that we fail to get the most out of the journey from Point A. If you don’t get the most out of where you are now, you may miss lessons you needed to learn, behaviors to add or remove, relationships to cultivate, and experiences that lead and develop you along the way.

When you’re too hasty and anxious, you miss the patient beauty of a life perfected through your current circumstances. Don’t miss out on what the Lord has for you…right where you are now. He’s shaping you, molding you, and perfecting you for His glory. He loves you and wants you to bloom and display the beauty of His love and grace.

Built by God’s Design

How you see your life developing may be different from God’s blueprint.

1. We dream of greatness. Growing up, we often think of being a doctor, nurse, firefighter, or a professional athlete. We dream of being in front of the largest crowds, cheering fans, and living lavishly. As time and opportunities come into focus, some (if not all) of our dreams change…reality sets in.

John 7:18 He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.

Our reason for speaking is founded either for our own pleasure or the pleasure of others (whoever that may be). As Jesus identifies, those that speak of themselves, only seek their own glory. They want people to marvel and be astounded at their gifts, talents, possessions, and works. Additionally, their speaking reveals how they seek their own pleasures of living in the world.

However, those that will seek the glory of the Father (the one that sent Jesus), will speak of God and Him alone. In addition, Jesus says that no unrighteousness is in that person. A person that seeks to glorify God (and not themselves) will be found righteous in the sight of God.

Focused on Purpose

Matthew 14:13-14When Jesus heard of it, he departed thence by ship into a desert place apart: and when the people had heard thereof, they followed him on foot out of the cities. And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick.

Jesus had heard of the death of his cousin, John the Baptist. As the scriptures read, it seems that he traveled to a distant place possibly to mourn his death. When the people heard of Jesus’ travels, they followed Him on foot out of the cities. Through Jesus’ compassion for those that came to Him, there are a number of principles that can be learned:

Each person is important to God and to His purpose for mankind. In some way, each person will be used to fulfill God’s purpose. As a Christian, I’ve struggled for many years trying to understand my specific purpose in life. Here is what I’ve learned so far:

1. Everyone has a purpose.

Ephesians 2:10 – For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

Each person is called to a specific function to display good works. These works are to bring glory to God and to build up the saints. (This doesn’t mean you will hold a position within the church.) God will call you to a position/purpose He entrusts you to fulfill and will provide you with everything you need to be successful.

Give and Take

In ministry I’ve learned that many people may not be willing to assist you. There seems to be more people willing to enjoy the ‘fruits’ of your labor than help you prepare and cultivate it.

Though we may want thousands of people to support our missions, our focus must be on our specific calling. God will provide EVERYTHING we need to fulfill our purpose in Him. He is faithful, just, and will not leave us without the support we need.

Keep your eyes on your purpose and mission – God will take care of the rest.
