Purpose

When you know that you have been called to do something
as everything around you is confirming it, what will you do?
Will you act or avoid?
Perhaps you are no longer happy in your career or your relationship seems to be unresolvably troubled. On top of it all your finances look like scrambled eggs...
What do you do?
These can be signs that God is speaking to you about your life.

It's your season. Time to pursue your hearts desire. Only you know what that is...

The truth is that God is always speaking to us beckoning us to act on our internal gifts. We are all called to earth at the time that we are supposed to be. Existing in order to complete something that only we ourselve can.
God knows the plans that he has for our lives and they are good.

To the wonderers... "wonder what my purpose is? " Does this not sound familiar? Have you ever asked yourself this question? Most have at least once in their lives.

Some people have obtained several degrees, are 40 plus years oldand still asking the same question of their yesterday. "What is my purpose?"
Understand that life is not a game... We are all created in the image and likeness of the Almighty God (For the BELIEVERS). We are powerful, capable and provided everything that we need to be successful in life.

The problem is FEAR...
Many know deep within what they are passionate about and what their talents are. Yet the thought of pusuit is easily encaptured by the compounding of fear. Fear of the unknown and fear of success. "Who would be afraid of success"you might ask..
The answer is simple.. With success comes responsibility. Whom is afraid of responsibility? Most everyone.

To whom much is given much is required. Now does it make sense?

Procrastination exist as a result of being afraid. If one fears that they may not be successful and will be required to uphold the responsibilities of success, they may delay that in which they are being called to do.
Yet the bible tells us... DO NOT CONSIDER YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES. Do not be fearful. Some fear they don't have enough education or intellegence to go after what they desire. Some can't find the money in their budget to start a business idea because they keep staring at their problems in sight asking themselves; "how can I start a business when there's barely enoughf to make ends meet." Fearing the unknown...

Just imagine if you just stepped out on faith. What would it feel like? My favorite bible verse (KJV) reads; Now faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things unseen. Hebrews 11:1.
This one sentence is the most powerful guarantee of our success. It is telling us so much in one profound statement. The first word.. NOW not later, FAITH not fear, IS (guarantee) the SUBSTANCE (meat and potato's) of things HOPED (dreams and visions) and EVIDENCE (proof) of things unseen.
In the bible it describes that God finished everything before he started it. He did not plan nor consider. He simply created what was in his mind. This tells me that He had a vision and he acted upon it.

We also know that fear is not a spirit thatGod gives us. So why do we hold onto it?
Is God not extremely powerful? He created the universe. That is pretty impressive. Neither you nor I can duplicate it. Neither you nor I can give each other purpose and vision. It is God that gives us these.

It is up to you to utilize that in which you've been given. I have a saying "never blame anyone for not knowing your name, it is your job to make sure that they do. " (Najai)

If everything around you seems to be going wrong then it is time to reach inside and pull up your dream. Youwill recognize purpose because it will not leave you alone until it is complete. This is your divine message that you must answer. You can do it... Do not consider your circumstances. Step out on faith because faith is the key that unlocks God's promise for a life of abundance.
Not just a life..
