This wisdom was imparted in my life by my Pastor and have blessed my life. I share it with you to bless your life as you seek your God-given purpose”You are at your best when you are who God created you to be – Pastor A. R. Bernard.”
God told Jeremiah in
Jeremiah 1:5 (Contemporary English Version)
Jeremiah, I am your Creator, and before you were born, I chose you to speak for me, to the nations.
The principle which took hold of me and that I live by,”vision stays the same but the methods to achieve the vision can change.” Governs how I go about achieving my purpose and making the right choices/decisions that will lead me into a favorable outcome lining up with my purpose. I had my share of paying the price for poor choices/decisions.
The same as a GPS system in a car recalibrate when we do not follow the directions it’s given us to the destination so God will redeem the time, recalibrate and use another method to get us to our goal when we go our own way to achieve the vision/purpose He has created us for.
Psalm 37:23 states
Here are some steps to take when pursuing your purpose:
1) Waiting on God led direction is not easy but necessary for your plan to be done correctly, orderly, and in decency (1 Corinthians 14:40)
2) Being prayerful and open to hear what God is saying is of great significance in achieving the vision
3) Having the courage to step out and execute the instructions God tells you to do
4) Let God’s peace be your guide also when walking out the vision
5) Having faith in God, the vision, and also in yourself knowing that God put everything you need in you to do what He has designed and called you to do
He understands the plan as mentioned previously:
Proverbs 19:21 (The Passion Translation)
A person may have many ideas concerning God’s plan for his life, but only the designs of his purpose will triumph ultimately
Staying intimately connected to God and abiding in Him will permit you to attain His desires for your life as well as getting His wisdom to reach and carry out your purpose. God will not tell you everything trusting Him is crucial to obeying Him.
There is no Plan B in God only different methods to the vision He purposed you for before you were in your mother’s womb. Be encouraged by this scripture that has been reassuring me and may it comfort you:
Psalm 138:8 (New King James Version)
The Lord will perfect that which concerns me;
Your mercy, O Lord, endures forever;
Do not forsake the works of Your hands.
Knowing what you’re good at and do well that is second nature to you normally is a clue to what your designed to do. You’ll also be enthusiastic about what your purposed to do. God is very dedicated to seeing His purpose come to fruition in your life.
Let this quote encourage you as it’s for me:
