What on earth does God intend for me to do with my life? It’s an easy question to ask but, for many of us, a difficult question to answer. Why? Because God’s purposes aren’t always clear to us. Sometimes we wander aimlessly in a wilderness of our own making. And sometimes, we struggle mightily against God in an unsuccessful attempt to find success and happiness through our own means, not His.
If you’re a person who sincerely seeks God’s guidance, He will give it. But, He will make His revelations known to you in a way and in a time of His choosing, not yours. So be patient. If you prayerfully petition God and work diligently to discern His intentions, He will, in time, lead you to a place of joyful abundance and eternal peace.
Sometimes, God’s intention will be clear to you; other times, God’s plan will seem uncertain at best. But even on those difficult days when you are unsure which way to turn, you must never lose sight of these overriding facts: Only God’s chosen task for you will ultimately satisfy. Do not wait until it is too late to realize the privilege of serving Him in His chosen position for You. God created you for a reason; He has important work for you to do; and He’s waiting patiently for you to do it.
And the next step is up to you.
Dear Lord, I know that You have a purpose for my life, and I will seek that purpose today and every day that I live. Let my actions be pleasing to You, and let me share Your Good News with a world that so desperately needs Your healing hand and the salvation of Your Son.
In Jesus name I pray
I, therefore, the prisoner in the Lord, urge you to walk worthy of the calling you have received.
Whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
1 Corinthians 10:31
