Live Full of Purpose

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in devotions

“So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it” Isaiah 55:11

Whenever I visit someone in the hospital or hear of someone who is ill, if it’s a believer, God shows me through prayer whether or not they have fulfilled their purpose and if it is their time to go home. He also reveals to me whether they will live because of a purpose still needing to be fulfilled. Sometimes we want to keep people here when they’ve completed their God-given purpose, and sometimes God is not done with them yet and no matter what the doctors say, “They will live and will not die (see Psalms 118:17).”

We have to be sensitive to purpose.

While Jesus walked the earth, He had purpose on His mind. The most important question you can ask yourself today is, are you fulfilling God’s purpose for your life? If you’re still breathing, you have a purpose. There’s a reason why you’re here. Every time you awake in the morning it should remind you that you’re not finished. There’s still more work to be done. There’s still more glory God wants to bring to His name through you. There’s still more people He wants you to reach and more souls He wants you to pull out of the fire through prayer. There’s still more purpose for you to fulfill.

Be emptied of any hidden agendas and be filled to the full with God’s purpose. Have one pursuit in life, and that is to press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus (see Philippians 3:14). Be determined to leave this earth having done everything God has asked of you.

Prayer: Father God, thank you for speaking directly my heart. Thank you that I’m not a maybe. I’m not an accident. My life is not uncertain. You have a purpose and plan for me. I am a mystery waiting to be revealed and a prophecy ready to be fulfilled. I’m your workmanship created in Christ Jesus unto good works that you ordained beforehand that I will walk in them. I won’t return to you void without accomplishing every single detail of your purpose for my life. Thank you Lord! In the name of Jesus, Amen.

(Read John 4:34; Ephesians 2:10)

Receive His power to get wealth.

“You shall remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you power to get wealth, that he may confirm his covenant that he swore to your fathers, as it is this day” Deuteronomy 8:18, ESV.

Take a moment and look at your hands. Go ahead, look at your hands. In those hands of yours lie the power to create, to produce and to employ. Those hands are empowered by God to get wealth. Maybe you’ve been looking outside of yourself for financial increase. Look within.

How quickly we receive the power to lay hands on the sick and watch them recover. We gladly receive and walk in the power to teach God’s Word and make disciples of all nations. We receive God’s power to cast out evil spirits and help people be free from bondage. But did you know that God’s power is creative too? The favor of God is on your life and He wants to bless you to create wealth, create jobs and create an easier way to do a thing. Don’t look for what others can do for you. Look for ways you can help others. What service can you provide? What need can you meet? What idea can you improve upon?

God gives us entrepreneurial spirit for a divine purpose. Receive His power to get wealth and then go and get it!

Prayer: Father God, I bless you for everything you are and for all you have put in me. Thank you for empowering me and enriching me. I receive your power to lay hands on the sick and watch them recover. I receive your power to teach your Word and make disciples. I receive your power to cast out evil spirits and help people be free. And Lord, my God, I receive your power to get wealth. Help me put forth my hands to get what you’ve ordered for me to receive. I look within. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
