I'm meditating on the word purpose this week, and yesterday the Lord ministered this to me:
You were created by God on purpose for a purpose, and when you make God's purpose your purpose, all things will come together for your good.
Isn't that amazing?! God made you on purpose. Everything about you that makes you you, God put there intentionally. All of your gifts, talents, traits, and mannerisms, God packaged together specifically when He created you.
Then He picked the nation, city, family, mother and father, even the year to purposefully insert you into the history of this planet. He timed your birth perfectly for you to fulfill His special purpose. You are no accident. You are here for a reason.
When you look at purpose this way, you can't help but be humbled. And you can't help but be motivated. If God lined everything up 'just so' to get us here, the least we can do is walk in His purpose for us. We can't waste such a specific, special plan.
Jesus knew His mission. He accomplished it in about three years. Yet, before He hit the climax, he was in preparation years before. At twelve we see Him "about my father's business" sitting at the feet of the rabbis in the temple. He had His eyes on the prize long before He spoke a parable or performed a miracle.
No matter where you are in life, you are still on assignment. God created you on purpose for His purpose. Sync up with your Creator and start living on purpose. You're not here just to exist. You're here to be a success. You won't experience true success until you embrace your true reason for living.
Verse of the Day: According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. Ephesians 1:4-6
