Finding Your True Purpose- Part 2

Finding Godly purpose goes beyond having just regular purpose or going through regular routines…

Judges 6:25-32… That same night the Lord said to him, “Take the second bull from your father’s herd, the one seven years old. Tear down your father’s altar to Baal and cut down the Asherah pole beside it. 26Then build a proper kind of altar to the Lord your God on the top of this height. Using the wood of the Asherah pole that you cut down, offer the second bull as a burnt offering.”
27So Gideon took ten of his servants and did as the Lord told him. But because he was afraid of his family and the townspeople, he did it at night rather than in the daytime.  28In the morning when the people of the town got up, there was Baal’s altar, demolished, with the Asherah pole beside it cut down and the second bull sacrificed on the newly built altar!
29They asked each other, “Who did this?” When they carefully investigated, they were told, “Gideon son of Joash did it.” 30he people of the town demanded of Joash, “Bring out your son. He must die, because he has broken down Baal’s altar and cut down the Asherah pole beside it.”
31But Joash replied to the hostile crowd around him, “Are you going to plead Baal’s cause? Are you trying to save him? Whoever fights for him shall be put to death by morning! If Baal really is a god, he can defend himself when someone breaks down his altar.” 32So because Gideon broke down Baal’s altar, they gave him the name Jerub-Baal that day, saying, “Let Baal contend with him.”

God says He has a purpose for us and it is up to us to find it and open ourselves up to it. We will then accomplish more in this life. A Godly purpose will give us a more fulfilled life.

If you are thinking wrong of God and of others and God’s role in this world, then you cannot live a Godly life.

God is saying that He believes in you so much that He sent His Son to die for you. You can live a fulfilled life when you find your purpose.

God wants to end the discouragement in your life. He has come to set you free, to break the bondage. Do not listen to the discouraging words.

Once we become serious about finding and committing to the purpose that God has for us, your faithfulness to God will be tested. The mature person, though, needs to see that God has something greater for you. See the discouragement for what it is and continue to seek Him.

God is not setting us up for failure. Seek higher. When we find Him, we will be blessed.

There may be some things that we may not have given over to God. He wants us to hand them over to Him so that He can do what He has purposed for us. If you are filled with too much of your things, how can God give you more; there is no room for Him.

Being committed to the purpose that God has for your life will require tearing down those strongholds. You need to not find yourself not giving the enemy a way to climb back into your life. Do not give him any opportunity.

Equally important to the removal of the things in our life that should not be there are what we replace them with. In our spiritual life when we remove what is not good, we need to find and put in its place what is Godly.

Jesus says that if you give Him your life, He will reshape it and put you on the path He has planned for you. Give yourself fully to Him and watch what He does for you!
