What is God's purpose for my life?

What is God's purpose for my life? Most people have asked that question at one time or another.  Usually, most have already tried to discover their purpose before asking that question, some by achievement, some through education, and some by work.  Many seek to find it through experiences; others through relationships. But the reality is, Christ says until you’re willing to lose all this, let go of it as a source of meaning, you’ll never find yourself. True life is about letting go of your priorities, of your desires, of your interests, in order to follow Christ’s. 

“He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it.” Matthew 10:37-39

In these verses Christ proclaims that He must come first in all of our relationships.  He must be top priority in everything of our life.  So have you made that decision? Are you willing to lose your priorities for Christ’s priorities?  The only way to really live is to lose your life for Jesus.  But how do we know what He wants from us.  Wouldn’t it be nice if you woke up each morning and God would just text you and tell you His purpose is for you today?  God speaks to each of us in His Word, and through prayer, and by walking in both we learn to see Him and hear Him.  Once we hear Him, we can then begin find His purpose for us.  Can you hear Him?

“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.  And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.” John 10:27-28

This is my Prayer: God to reveal Your purpose for me.  Help me listen for Your answer.  Show me how to have the faith to continue in Your purpose.  Lord teach me to seek Your will and wants, and to make You top priority in my life.  Jesus speak to me in Your word and in my prayer life, that I will be able to follow You.  In Jesus name, Amen.
