It’s encouraging to know that God has designed you with a unique purpose and destiny, but just knowing it’s “out there” isn’t enough. It’s your privilege to get with God to discover your purpose. He designed your purpose specifically for you, and He already knows what it is. Get Him involved, and together you can uncover and discover your purpose.
‘It is God’s privilege to conceal things and the king’s privilege to discover them.’ Proverbs 25:2 (NLT)
When the temptation comes to feel that you may have wasted years and too many careers without knowing your purpose, remember this verse.
‘And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose.’ Romans 8:28 (AMP).
What a comfort it is to have the confidence that He’ll make all things work together for good. Be encouraged! You can look back on your life, remove the things you know weren’t from God, and see how He cared for you and led you through the years when you didn’t realize it.
It’s a beautiful thread God has sewn through your life to get you where you are today, ready to step into your destiny. Look back and see how God was leading you, and pay attention to the things you learned. They are valuable in discovering your purpose.
The Promise of Purpose,
Find out for yourself what God’s purpose is for your life. This test is a tool for you, to begin to recognize what God’s purpose is for you on earth. By taking a step back, you can look introspectively to find what brings you joy, and how to apply it to every area of your life.
