Step by Step To Discovering Your Purpose

Teeque 2d

A lot of us have gone through the detrimental phase of not knowing what it is we are ment to do with our lives or if what we are currently doing or where we are supposed to be is actually where we are.

In the midst of such confusion..there is another light i would like to bring forth that can guide you into doing what you ought to do with your life. Sometimes our greatest purpose lies in how we influence others, because that on its own makes us grow as individuals..

I won't be long but i just want to remind you of the assignment, the role and the purpose that God has given us. This purpose is of being salt and light in the world and of walking just as Christ walked while on earth..bearing in mind that we are not just doing it for ourselves but to draw in as much people as we can into the kingdom of God. 

Psalms 69:5-6

O God, You know my foolishness; And my sins are not hidden from You. Let not those who wait for You, O Lord GOD of hosts, be ashamed because of me; Let not those who seek You be confounded because of me, O God of Israel.

The way we live speaks of Christ, and our foolishness and sin has the ability to drag the name of the Lord in mud..to the point where people think Christianity is a big joke and there is actually no God or a hope of eternal life..so what is your purpose as a person?

1. To know God and live by his principles

2. To live your everyday life showing the fruits of knowing God, walking in Christ's way, that is, leading all the people around you in the rightful manner

3. To live your life adding value to first yourself because in that way you are able to transfer that very same energy to everyone else around you..a positive ball you will be.

Matthew 5:13-16 New International Version (NIV)

Salt and Light

13 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.

14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

This above verse shows you have a greater purpose of adding value and taste..Your lives are capable of bringing forth testimony that indeed Jesus Christ is alive and that he is King. May your deeds shine everywhere you go because you are the light, so wherever the is darkness, when you appear light appears aswell..

May each step you take this season lead people to glorify the name of the Lord and not shame it.. since you are a light not hidden but put on a stand for all to see..i pray that, you do not hide the Goodness and glory of the Lord but reveal his splendor. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.
