Are you struggling with situations and circumstances that have remained stubborn and adamant? Have you prayed and fasted and sought counselling and it appears nothing is working? It has been written that all things are possible for they that believe and are called according to his purpose; why are you struggling so hard then? Many of us today are really struggling with painful situations and we’ve done all we can to overcome and nothing seems to be working, shifting or giving way for solution. Many of us are struggling with our relationships, our marriages, our children, our finances, our careers, our businesses, our health and many other life issues. We’ve prayed about these matters, we’ve fasted and perhaps sought different spiritual leaders to intercede and pray with us on these matters, yet, it seems nothing is happening. We have vowed, sown seeds, made sacrificial offerings and given lavishly to probably activate this blessing or breakthrough and still, it isn’t happening. We have sought for spiritual intervention and deliverance, fought the kingdom of darkness; applied the anointing oil, used Holy Communion and so many symbolic ordinances. Yet, nothing is happening. Out of exasperation, we have concluded the challenge is probably a testing of our faith, God is probably testing us to check our commitment and faith in Him.
A major misconception in the kingdom today is the assumption that we are in charge of our lives, our future and our destinies. Many of us erroneously choose and decide what we want in our lives, what we want for our lives and how we want our lives to be. We then demand for God’s approval, quote many scriptures of promises, and desperately want to compel Him to do our bidding. For many of us, God has become our “genie in a lamp” and He exists only but to grant our many wishes. God’s job is to approve and establish our own plans and desires exactly as we want it. This is definitely not the way. If out of desperation you pressure God to do what you want, He may do it for you though, but your own plans will ultimately bring you many sorrows – it will bring leanness to your soul (Psalm 106:15 He granted the desires of their hearts but sent leanness to their soul).
The bible says all things work together for good for those that love God and are called according to HIS purpose. Your good and exciting life is only found and enjoyed within HIS PURPOSE not yours. (Romans 8:28, all things work together for the good of those that love the Lord and are called according to HIS purpose)
Our greatest problems and challenge arise from trying to super-impose our ways, our desires and our dreams on His own purpose. We want the life He gave us for ourselves, we wrongly assume rebirth and morality is all he demands from us. We believe the choice of career, the choice of friends, business, investment, dreams and lifestyle is ours to decide. No one has a personal purpose, every man ought to live and thrive within GOD’S PURPOSE for their lives. The many troubles we face in life as a people are consequences of running with our personal plan; what we love to do, what people want us to do and what we prefer to do - not God’s purpose or desires for our lives.
I assure you, as long as your life is in line with His purpose, you are exactly where you should be. That situation and challenge is there to develop something in you for you to effectively manifest glory. You’ll know you’re in purpose as even in very challenging times, you’ll have this peace that even you can’t understand.
What you need do today is to first go to God and ask for a revelation of His purpose for your life. You need direction from the Holy Spirit, meaning, you need to be saved first by confessing with your mouth that Jesus is your Lord and believing with your heart that God raised Him from the dead and asking for forgiveness of your sins and an adoption into His kingdom as a saved soul. Afterwards, His spirit will begin to reveal direction to you regarding His purpose through your regenerated spirit. Stop worrying, stop struggling, stop fumbling, stop failing. Receive grace and peace by giving up your purpose for His purpose. It’s not just a morality and rebirth issue, it’s about what you’re here to do in this world.
Rest in His word and trust Him. You will give an account of His purpose for your life, not your own choices and desires. Do you know His purpose? All things are designed to work for your good, you will laugh at last I promise you, be of good cheer. Ask for His purpose and develop the courage to pursue His purpose for your life. It is the key to a life of peace, joy, wealth and fulfilment. Give him praise right now.
