Welcome to today’s edition of Word Fresh.
I might not know much, but one thing I know is that God’s word concerning me will come to pass.
Joshua 23:14, “Deep in your hearts you know that every promise of the LORD your God has come true. Not a single one has failed!”
Look at that! None of God’s word failed!
What has God said concerning you?
Several persons define purpose to mean what you were born to do, and that is very correct. Myles Munroe says it is the manufacturer’s intent for creating a product, in this case you.
Now how do I define purpose? Purpose, as I would love to see it, is God’s word concerning me.
Knowing my purpose simply means discovering what God has said concerning me.
You can see that in that definition is the general and then the specific. The general is ‘God’s word’ and the specific, ‘concerning me!’
You can’t know the specific if you disregard the general. True or False?
True, certainly. And so we must pick up God’s word and know it, then we will begin to find our hearts warm up to some portions of the scriptures and our minds become receptive to understanding God’s word and how He speaks to His people such that when God speaks to you, you will not confuse it with Eli’s voice.
Because you know God’s word.
‘And the word of the lord came to Jeremiah.’
‘And the word of the lord came to Micah’
‘And God spoke to Moses saying…’
Those scriptures move me. They humble me, they make me want to pray. They make me want to find out what God is saying concerning me.
‘Ask and it shall be given to you. Seek and you shall find, knock and the doors shall be open to you. For everyone that asketh receiveth, and everyone that seeketh findeth, and everyone that knocketh, the door shall be open unto him!’
Dear friend, as you begin to ask God about his purpose for your life, I know you’ll receive answers. For he says, ‘Ask and you shall receive.’
As you open the pages of scriptures to seek out what God is saying concerning you, I know you shall find direction. And as you knock on the doors of mercy, I know the doors of mercy will be opened to you.
I will not faint until I have discovered what God is saying concerning me, because I don’t want to live on hope, I want to live on purpose!
In view of the above, starting Oct 1, @TheLAfamily will be reading through the New Testament in 130 days under the program, #LA130. To join, please tweet to @ikeamadi or @TheLAfamily. You’ll be glad you did.
Let’s go for purpose, let’s go for God’s word concerning us!
