There comes a time in every one's life when they must ask the question, what is my purpose on this earth? Do you know your purpose? Has God given you a direction? Or, are you waiting for an epiphany to hit you?
Confusion is not of the Lord, so if you're feeling confused today ask the Lord to capture every thought and bring His light in. I think we just think too much. We look for our purpose everywhere except for the place we should look for it, in Scripture. God calls us to be His workers and yet, we look hard for our purpose in the world.
Young people everywhere are struggling with their purpose in an economy that's lacking financial stability and a job market that has not even begun to stabilize. They don't know what direction they want to go in and they have no idea even where to begin.
The big question is, how do we steer others to their purpose if we don't know? I think we do know. If you're pregnant today, soon, you will have to be a good mother. God calls us all to be good mothers. But what about those that can't have children or those that are single, you are special because He wants you to nurture the orphans and the unloved. He gives you time to invest in young people so that they can grow up knowing His love. I'm sure you never think that you're special, but you are, in God's sight. You have the time and ability to bring about His army. You are a worker in the most vast of fields and You will be used to increase the crop.
Everywhere you look, there are people that need Christ. In my own family, I have several that don't believe in God. I'm sure if you look around, at your neighbors, your friends and even your co-workers, they need God, just as much as we do and yet, we don't really have the courage to cultivate that relationship. Today, God is calling us to do more with less. The United States and now Europe is in financial ruin. People are crying out and are unhappy, lost and confused. They wonder what they did and where they're going.
Let's take this opportunity to account for the love that was given. I can understand if you don't know what direction to go in for your career but you have to know that God has a direction with your free time. He is calling all women to stand up and be accountable to those that are younger, less fortunate and in dire need of a Savior. We do have a purpose. HIM! So if your floundering today and wondering what your next move is, be intent and invest in someone. I guarantee your career and direction will come along as you follow Christ. I can't say it enough ladies, let's be the hands and feet of God and show the love we have inside for our fellow man. We have a purpose, we have a Father, and we have the greatest commandment of all, love! So if you're unsure of your destiny, look toward someone that needs Christ and you will find it.
Romans 12:9-13 NKJV:
Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good. Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another; not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer; distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality.
So, if your lost and confused, take a look at this Scripture. It gives us a direction and purpose. It tells us what God expects of us and how we need to serve Him. Let's take the blinders off and pray for people to enter our lives that need Christ. Our careers, our dreams and our families will all come about if we love our fellow man. I know that each of us has the power to love someone today. Take the time to look around and ask Christ to bring a confused and lost soul into your life and let's be fervent in Spirit today!
My prayer today:
How wonderful and beautiful you are! Thank you for being a God that loves the broken. I am so grateful that I don't have to concentrate on works or a religion, all I have to do is concentrate on my relationship with you and you do the rest. As we grow to know you better, my prayer is that every woman would see your hand, share your love, and grow to know you. I want every woman in the world to trust in a Savior and to love God more than they love themselves. It's a tall order and I realize that I will be held to the mark but I want to be Your woman more than anything else. Please guide our direction and take all confusion out of our minds. Make us likeminded with You and always give us the strength to help others in need. We love You Lord with everything we have. In Jesus name AMEN
