TOPIC: THE DISCOVERY OF PURPOSE -THE MOST IMPORTANT DISCOVERY IN LIFE
SCRIPTURE: And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do. Acts 9:6
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: When purpose is not known, time becomes a burden.
Life remains a loss-bound gamble until purpose is discovered. That is why a major reason why people leave their lives to chance is because they do not know what life is all about. They do not know the purpose of their lives. What you know is what you can show. Due to this ignorance of what life is all about, people live carelessly and allow their lives to be wasted by the devil, sin and the system of the world. What a waste!
Therefore, it is important to know the most important discovery in life in order to maximise our lives.
Now, what is the most important discovery in life?
The most important discovery in life is the Discovery of Purpose!
God’s servant, Bishop David Oyedepo once said, ‘Life without a bearing is a burden.’ Life without purpose is pointless. The purpose of life is the life of purpose. So, no one is qualified to live if they are not aware of why they are alive.
One of the most desperate prayers you should pray in life is, Lord, show me why I’m here on earth. What do you want to do with my life? Where should I channel or invest the energies of my life? The difference between people of impact and those without impact is the sense of purpose. So, the discovery of purpose is one of the most important discoveries in life.
When purpose is not known, time becomes a burden; a person would have time but would not know what to do with it. When purpose is not known, regrets are inevitable.
My counsel is, passionately pursue the discovery of God’s purpose for your life by asking God desperately at the place of prayer.
Remember this: When purpose is not known, time becomes a burden.
1. Desperately ask God to reveal to you your purpose for living.
2. Channel the energies of your life to the fulfilment of your purpose.
PRAYER: O Lord, I ask that You reveal to me Your purpose for creating me. Give me the grace to pursue and fulfil Your purpose for my life, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
