Are You Stumbling Toward an Uncertain Future?
By: John L. M.
My friend, the late Myles Munroe said, “There is something for you to start that is ordained for you to finish.” God made you special for a purpose. He has an assignment for you to do no one else can do as well as you can. Out of billions of applicants, you’re the most qualified. You have right combination of what it takes. God has given each person the measure of faith to do what He’s called him or her to do. Every person is gifted.
A person is never what he ought to be until he is doing what he ought to be doing.
God holds us not only responsible for what we have, but for what we could have; not only for what we are, but for what we might be.
Don’t just pray that God will do this or that, rather pray that God will make His purpose known to you. William Cowper said, “The only true happiness comes from squandering ourselves for a purpose.” Note Proverbs 19:21: ”Whatever your plan is just know that nothing else will satisfy you.” Know that God is with you and will provide what you need to accomplish your purpose. The God who made the mouth will also provide the food.
Don’t part company with your purpose. It is an anchor in the storm. A purposeless life is an early death. Psalms 138:8 reads, “The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me; thy steadfast love, O Lord endures forever.”
Rick Renner commented, “The only thing that will keep you from the will of God is if you look at yourself and say, ‘I’m not so much among so many.’” You can’t do anything about the length of your life, but you can do something about its width and depth. What you believe is the force that determines what you accomplish or fail to accomplish in life.
Too many people know what they are running from, but not what they’re running to. Having a powerful why will provide you with the necessary how. Purpose, not money, is your real asset.
No wind blows in favor of a ship without a destination. A person without a purpose is like a ship without a rudder. What you set your heart on will determine how you’ll spend your life. A person going nowhere can be sure of reaching his destination.
Abandon yourself to destiny.
