We were not formed by our fathers and mothers; they are only channels through which the formation took place. Life without a bearing is a burden. There is a reason you are created even before you came to this world.
You are not accidentally created but a deliberate act of creation. Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou comest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet into the nation. Jeremiah 1:5. There is a particular purpose you must fulfill on this planet earth. You are already ordained as a prophet in a specific area of your life.
We came to this world by God’s deliberate design. He is our manufacturer, we are the products, and no product determines its function. Every Purpose is determined by the manufacturer. A wrist watch cannot decide to start functioning as a car; the manufacturer determines its function.
No matter how costly the wrist watch may be, it will only function according to the manufacturer’s intent for creating it. Anything you do outside your purpose in life will only make a mockery of it.
We are more bothered about what we are created to be than what we are created to do. Purpose is the discovery of what we are created to do. If you want to be wealthy and famous, you have to discover what you are created to do to become wealthy and famous.
Doing what you are created to do is what makes you become what you are created to be. Purpose does not target possession but designed essentially for contribution. Service is the only way to actualize your purpose and fulfill your destiny in life. If you are here just to consume, you may end up been consumed.
How To Discover Your Purpose
This is a spiritual unfolding of divine plan and purpose as it relates to you. It can be delivered through prayer of inquiry. The prayer of a child is; Father gives me. The prayer of an adult is; Father shows me. And ye shall seek me and find me, when ye shall find me with all your heart, Jeremiah 29:13
This is looking inward to see what is put inside you through deliberate self-study. These are the things that turn you on when you engage in them.
Your passion can be defined as things that get you emotionally caught up in your actions and reactions to certain things or issues. “Living without a definite assignment is like living in an asylum. Living for self makes a slave, but living for others makes a leader”.
How To Fulfill Your Discovered Purpose
Purpose without direction will lead to frustration. It is known direction that will take you to your destination. Directions are not delivered by accident. Nobody is entitles to an answer without a question. The following bearings are ways to fulfill your discovered purpose in life.
There is no substitute for this bearing in life. Only the creator knows the purpose and destination of its creature. When you stop seeking God, you start sinking. No matter how beautiful a flower maybe, when it is plugged off from its roots, it will surely die in a matter of time. When you are running the purpose of your manufacturer you will need his backing and support.
You must depend on God’s direction for every step in your pursuit. “Not every good idea is God’s idea. Whatever lacks divine backing will soon become a burden. If you keep pace with God, you won’t lose your peace”. There are some things you required to do tomorrow in God’s plan but you decide to do it today, thereby destroying your tomorrow. God is never slow but sure.
Role Model Bearing
Without reference, you cannot become a reference. Thus saith the Lord, stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, we will not walk therein. Jeremiah 6:16. Having a role model enables you to play your role well.
Jesus Is Lord!!!
