I want to talk to you today about What’s the Point of Purpose. And I’m going to tell you a quick story.
One day I was in an event, and it was a worship event, and I was standing there with my eyes closed and just hands up, just really surrendered to the Lord– trying to hear what He had to say. And I did hear something. And the Lord said to me, “Open your eyes.” And I’m like, Lord, I don’t want to open my eyes, I’m enjoying my time here with You. I don’t want to, I don’t want to be distracted by what’s going on around me. But again, he said, “Open your eyes.” And so I opened my eyes, and I begin to look around the room. And these are the words that he said to me. He said, “Anita, the majority of the people here will never do what I’ve called them to do.” And my mind what, why in the world, Lord, are you telling me this? Why are you telling me this? And that was, I don’t know, perhaps two, three years ago or so.
But I’m beginning to understand why He said it to me. For one, purpose is important. Your purpose is important. And there are some purposes that we’re all put on the earth to do. And we all know, a few of those are to glorify God in the spread the Gospel, but there’s a specific purpose that He gave each one of us individually, that is unique to us. It’s unique to you. And God wants us to fulfill those purposes in our lives.
So, if He created everything with a purpose, and let’s say, we’re the ones that have choice, and we’re the ones, humans are the ones, that can make decisions to say yes or no, and things like that. What are you going to say to the Lord?
Here’s my question, and I want you to put this in the comments below. Do you know your purpose? And the answers might be yes, the answer may be no, the answer may be kind of and I’m not even asking you if you’re walking fully in it right now. I’m just simply asking, do you even know it? It took me a long time to figure out what I was here for. And it almost seemed like I tripped up on it accidentally. And it and we all know there’s no such thing as as accidents, in terms of are no such things as coincidence.
But I understand now that I’m here to help people discover, walk out, what have you their purposes. And in the meantime, while I’m helping others do that I’m actually fulfilling mine. And so what’s the point of purpose, I’m going to tell you the point of purpose by way of a Scripture and I’m going to read it to you. It’s from Psalm 138:8a, the Lord will fulfill His purpose for me. Okay, so what’s the point of purpose, the Lord will fulfill His purpose for me.
So, to me the point of purpose is that is His purpose that He intends us to fulfill. And so I believe, with all my heart, that a lot of the troubles that a lot of the challenges that we have in life, a lot of the times are not…we’re not on our own path to purpose, or we’ve decided God, that’s not…that thing is too hard, and I don’t know how to do it. Once God shows you what it is He wants you to do, and you’re on that path to walking that thing out, He’s got your back. And you need to know that. So, what we’re going to be talking about going forward is how to know what it is, how to know if we’re on track, and how to know what God is saying to us in the process.
And I and I’m going to tell you, I am not your guru, I’m not anybody’s guru, I’m on the same path with everyone else, and working this thing out. And so I just want to… I believe the Lord wants us just to gather together to help each other to make sure that we’re on that that path of purpose that He’s called us to so that we can all make it to that finish line is not a race is not a competition. We’re going to be listening to the voice of the Lord, we’re going to be reading His word, we’re going to be doing the things that He’s called us to do. And if He gives us an instruction, we’re going to finish that instruction. So if He says to you, Anita, start a YouTube channel. I I I…my first thought was, I don’t want to start a YouTube channel, but God says start a YouTube channel. So guess what, this is my obedience to the last word that I heard.
So, let me know if you’re on your path of purpose right now. Yes, no, and there’s no condemnation. We just want to all get together and make sure that we’re helping each other along the way. So let me know in the comments, and then I’ll see you next time. Bye.
