WHAT IS PURPOSE?

  1. Your purpose is the necessity that influenced your creation by God (1Sam. 16:1)
    Your purpose is the reason for you in the world
  2. Your purpose is the desire or pleasure you were designed and created to fulfill for the Creator (Rev. 4:11)
  3. Your purpose is the assignment, mission or duty you were created to fulfil (Jer. 1:5)
    Your purpose is that particular duty you were designed to pour your life’s labour, energy and time into
  4. Your purpose is the worth, benefit and value of your existence to both Divinity and humanity (1Sam. 18: 7; 2Sam. 18:1-3)
    Your purpose is the justification of your existence
    Your purpose is the gain, profit or merit of your life in the earth
    Your purpose is that which makes you valuable in the earth
    Your purpose is the value you are in the earth to create or add
    Your purpose is the difference you are in the earth to make
  5. Your purpose is the sum total of the mark and impact you have been placed on the earth to make
    Your purpose is the uniqueness and distinctiveness you are to bring to bear on your world

PROFITS OF UNDERSTANDING PURPOSE:

  1. Understanding purpose delivers people from the feeling of hopelessness, worthlessness and uselessness in life (Ps. 42:5; Job 14:14)
    When you understand the purpose you were created to fulfil, you no longer live like an accident of creation
  2. Understanding purpose delivers people from the tragedy of the wasted life (Prov. 29:18)
    The clear understanding of your purpose delivers you from living at random or leaving life to chance
  3. Understanding purpose helps to direct life’s energy, time and resources to what really matters to life (Phil. 3:13-14)
    Understanding purpose brings focus and concentration to life
    A distracted life is a purposeless life
  4. Understanding purpose delivers people from wrong companionships and relationships (Prov. 13:20; Dan. 217-18)
    Your purpose influences your partnerships
    Your assignment determines your alignment
  5. Understanding purpose delivers people from the plague of imitation and competition (2Cor. 10:12; Joel 2:7)
    Imitation is limitation and competition is complication of life and destiny
    There is a potential-productivity ratio that is a determinant of your purpose fulfilment
    When you know your purpose, you are free from envy and competitive jealousy; when you know your purpose, you run in your lane
    Every calling from God is a high calling; no calling is higher than the other
  6. Understanding purpose fuels pursuit and persistence in life (Hab. 2:1-3; Heb. 12:1-2)
    Once you know what you are on earth to do, there is no plan B; you are empowered to be persistent in your pursuit.
    You can change the plans but the purpose remains; Purpose is a constant, plan is variable

COUNSEL:

  1. Determine to understand God’s purpose for your life to avoid the tragedy of a wasted life (Jer. 33:3)
  2. Knowing that your most important purpose in life is spiritual and eternal, you must determine to live in a way that will make the most spiritual impact for time and eternity (Eccl. 12:7)

PRAYERS:

Father, I come before You and ask for mercy and the grace to understand Your full purpose in every realm in my spiritual journey, life and career pursuit; that I will not miss You in my journey in life. Help me Lord, in Jesus’ Name

Father, I receive Your help to set my spiritual priorities in life. I receive that grace that will help me fulfill my spiritual purpose in life and in eternity. Help me Lord, in Jesus’ Name
