A few weeks ago I carried out a survey with some of my podcast listeners and one major pain point for many was the area of knowing or clarifying their purpose and vision. In this episode, I talk about how important it is to trust God to reveal your purpose to you.
For a few weeks now I have been talking about abiding in Christ on Like Jesus. Going forward I want to focus on helping you as a Jesus follower to begin to take steps in the direction of God’s leading for your life.
Question: Do you know why you are here on earth?
What have you been designed to do here?
Well, I must say that I am not really expecting you to fully be able to answer that Question right now. It’s a big question but there is an answer to it.
However, in order to answer that, we must journey back to the beginning, your beginning. Yes, yours!
I am not talking about the day you were born, I am talking about the day you were conceptualized. Not by your parents because no parent know the child they will get.
In short, I remember when we were expecting our first son, I was so excited to meet the child. I had no idea what he was going to look like if he would look like me of my family or even like my husband’s family. His personality and all that. I had no clue. It was all a surprise for me. Even the second time we were expecting another boy, I still felt clueless. Was he going to look like his brother…or be like …? We didn’t know.
So your beginning I am talking about is when God decided to make you, to send you here on earth. What was His intention?
I am sure you are thinking, well I wasn’t there….You are right, neither was I. But your maker was there. He knows exactly why he sent you on the journey here. And you can be sure he wants you to know why.
My message for you today is that God is only one who knows the plans he had for you here. Of course, I know you have clues here and there. Pieces from your past experiences, what you are passionate about and your skills but I want you to know that those are just clues, pieces of the puzzle. Someone has the full picture and that’s God.
This is why spending time with him is extremely important. He is the one that will fill in the gaps, he will join the dots of your life and as you continue to trust him, the full image will continually emerge.
So once again, my desire is to help you to take steps towards God’s direction for your life and today my message is He know the plan, so trust Him.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11 NLT
I want people that are trying to be like Jesus to be bold to take steps in the direction of God’s leading for their lives.
God bless you!
