The day I found out that Rick Warren’s book “The Purpose Driven Life” was the 2nd most sold book in the world after the bible, I understood why? Everyone is born with a purpose, but most dying never finding out what it is, or if they did, they allowed fear to keep them from honoring God (the Creator) by becoming and doing all that He purposed for them to do.
It’s NOT EASY. But our greatest example will always be Christ. see most of us think that because He is the Son of God, that He is God (did not find it wrong to equate Himself with God) that it was impossible for Him to sin, or walk away from His purpose..but that’s not true. In order for Him to become who HE WAS NAMED BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE EARTH…(THE LAMB SLAIN BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE EARTH revelation 13:8) He had to WALK OUT IN THE FLESH all the way to the end..even death of the cross to accomplish it. THE BIBLE SPEAKS ABOUT HIM SWEATING DROPS OF BLOOD in the garden of Gethsemane because the thought of being separated from the Father was almost unbearable…BUT THE LOVE THE FATHER HAD FOR US..trumped all fear, and all doubt. And He walked out the purpose of his LIFE! Jesus says “pick you your cross(purpose) and follow me, for my yoke is easy and my burden is light”…
I know it hits a sore spot simply because the people I’m ministering about happen to be known all over the world…and YET remember that God is the GIFT GIVER…and even as we enjoy the gifts that He bestowed upon Robyn & Chris, that’s not ALL THEIR LIFE ENTAILS…it’s not all He has purposed them for..and just like He gives us pastors/preachers/teachers/ etc…don’t find it hard that what He has destined for you to do..is something GREAT. Because whatever His purpose for your life is..YOU WILL NEED HIM TO DO IT. Don’t ever think that the created thing don’t need the CREATOR to understand how it’s suppose to operate. Cause being humble is great, but to BE HUMBLED CAN BE PAINFUL.
Believe in WHO GOD SAID YOU ARE..and if someone tells you or calls you something that GOD DIDN’T SAY…tell them…you can’t RECREATE what God already spoke…Im one of a kind..MY PURPOSE IS FOR ME ALONE TO WALK OUT, YOU CAN’T DO IT FOR ME..SO PLEASE DON’T HINDER ME ..I HAVE TO BE ABOUT MY FATHERS BUSINESS.
