Have you ever asked yourself, what is my purpose in life? I know that I have many times. Especially having gone through a lot of trauma… It leaves us feeling confused, like we have no purpose at all.
Make sure to check out this podcast episode for even more on this topic.
Let me ask you this: What is in front of you right now?
Sometimes we can get so focused on a life purpose and passion, that we can forget the smaller things that are in front of us right now. Like having an amazing spouse and children. We can forget to be thankful that we woke up healthy or that we have a house and food. We skip all of the important things that are part of the process to get to where God wants to take us.
Every day we have the choice to wake up and submit our life and will to God.Every day we have the choice to wake up and submit our will and life to God. Click To Tweet
What is it right now that God is asking you to do? It could be something so simple like learning to spend time with Him and in His word.
What does the Bible say about walking in purpose?
Have you carved out the daily time to spend with God in prayer? Be honest with yourself about this one, because spending time with God and in His word is the way you discover your purpose and this takes daily discipline. If you haven’t started that is okay too, let this be an encouragement to you.
You will find many Bible verses that ask us to trust God. Do you trust God enough that He know what He is doing with your life? Do you believe He will guide you to what’s next? We have to remember He is an on time God and His ways are higher than ours.
In James 4:7 it says, therefore, submit to God and resist the devil and he will flee from you.
So whatever your plans are and whatever you’re doing in life, submit to God. Whether it works out how you wanted or not – continue to submit to God and trust Him, and do not give the devil a foothold in your life by believing your life doesn’t have purpose.
We have to learn to be consistent in the little things.
I’m sure there are things in your life that you’ve started and then stopped.
When I started to discover my purpose, God taught me the importance of follow through. There is a Bible verse that say’s if I can trust you with a little, I can trust you with a lot. God will usually work on our character before He reveals the bigger vision for our life.
What are some of the little things that God is asking you to do?
These little things are what add up to the bigger purpose.
