What is Purpose?
- Your reason for existence
- You are an answer to a problem on the earth (Gen 2:15)
- What you are built for, which you do not struggle at
There is a purpose for everything and everyone.
Is. 54:16-18 (vs. 17 – i created the waster)
- Moses – deliverer from 400 year captivity
- Jesus – Saviour from eternal dearth n sin
- David – built a Kingdom
The Power of Purpose
- Purpose open’s doors prayer cannot
- Purpose wins every battle
Let purpose determine the following:
- friends (i call you friends because…)
- associates or partners (can 2 walk together)
- environment and acquaintances
- office or department
- your spouse
Don’t condemn yourself when God has not!
- Paul the persecutor became the apostle
- Moses the murderer became the deliverer
- Rahab the prostitute became the deliverer
- Peter the betrayer became the campaign leader
- Jacob the thief became the carrier of a promise
- David the murderer was the chosen by God
- Abraham who lied about his wife out of fear was God’s friend
What matters most is to be able to say one day, that I have finished what what God asked me to do.
15 Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake.
16 Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy.
17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.
