Day 84 - God's Purpose for You

Finding Your Creative Bones® 365-Day Devotional © 2023


Accepting and loving the condition of God's purpose for you.

If you were a servant when you became a Christian, let it not be a grief to you; but if you have a chance to become free, make use of it.
For he who was a servant when he became a Christian is the Lord's free man; and he who was free when he became a Christian is the Lord's servant.
It is the Lord who has made payment for you: be not servants of men.
My brothers, let every man keep in that condition which is the purpose of God for him. (1 Corinthians 7.21-24 Bible in Basic English (BBE))

What is God's purpose for you? Have you asked yourself this question?


It may be precisely what you are doing. To question yourself is good, but there is a point where questioning should stop, and loving yourself should take over. If you get caught in a cycle of continuously questioning whether you are on God's path, you could drive yourself to disappointment that is not of the Lord. It is a fine line that we need to learn how to travel. Step away and pray for guidance if the questioning makes you feel less. Let the Holy Spirit bring answers to you. He will if you hand it over to him. Love yourself and accept that if you are doing what you know in your conscience is good, you are on God's path.


Prayer:

Holy Spirit, I seek your wisdom regarding my purpose. Am I actively fulfilling it, or do I need to do to change directions to please our Lord and fulfill my destiny? I am asking for your guidance so that I do not worry or wonder and spend time on what is not productive for my relationship with God. If allowed to, this could lead me to places I do not want to go. Instead, I want to spend my achieving God's purpose. Guide me and help me see God's footprints so that I can follow them throughout my life. Thank you for your wisdom. Amen.

A good word today, Cindy. It's always easy to question what we are to do, and it could be that we are already doing it but need to relook at it as not for ourselves, but working for the Lord. -- Angie Vallejo

That is a great point Angie! Looking at what we are doing from the Lord's perspective can certainly change how we think and then how we do things. Thank you! Cindy Rae

It is interesting how you ask God's purpose for you in your Christian faith, the same day I ask Source the same question through Sacred Oracle Cards. I love our connection to the Holy Spirit and how we are guided to share our truths. Thank you for sharing. Sending love.

It can be challenging to figure out your purpose. And I believe your purpose can change over your lifetime. Guidance to figure that out can come from various sources like prayer.


Thank you for providing some additional food for thought!

I so agree that our purpose evolves as we go through life. The choices we make affect our path to our destiny. Prayer is a strong source and guide. My pleasure to share. Thank you and God Bless. Cindy Rae
