Are you confused about purpose? Do you have issues with direction and clarity?
Do you feel distracted or focused on another man’s focus instead of yours?
This is the right time to thrash out these things in God’s presence.
This particular edition is very dear to my heart.
I struggled to find ‘purpose’ for many years, only for me to find it and realise it was hid in Christ all these while. I was just supposed to follow Christ and watch him reveal Himself to me and reveal me to me. The treasure I thought was at the other side had been in me all these while. The devil has done a great job ensuring that we look towards our gifts to fulfill purpose instead of us looking at the gift maker.
When I finally knew who I was, I struggled to gain clarity. Everything seemed hazy, I couldn’t bring myself to fulfill the Father’s mandate. I thought I was supposed to run this race by my power, but the Father told me ‘it’s not by power nor by might, but by my Spirit’. Then I dropped the reins at His feet, I dropped my ambitions, plans, idea of a good life, feelings, fears and certificate at His feet. And I cried out ‘over to you Lord, make something beautiful out of my broken pieces’.
Just when I thought I had it all together, I became distracted. I started comparing myself with others. They had the kind of life I wanted, I was told to follow God, but seeing my mates have what I have desperately prayed for is no small thing. That distraction weighed me down and I lost focus but the Father stepped in and He said ‘ I designed your life, I created your path, walk in it, therein is the life you need’. When the enemy wants to distract, all he does is to give you another vision. Hear the Father today, focus on your focus!!! Some of you have been crippled with the fear of what people will say. Hmmmmm the Father is saying to you…
The only thing you should be concerned about is what I am saying. There is a call upon your life to fulfill destiny and to die empty. It’s not about the noise, or the accolades, it’s about the lives attached to yours. Fulfill Purpose, Die Empty… It takes more than marriage to do that.
