Life with a Purpose


Are you walking with real purpose and meaning in your life?


By definition, purpose means - Something that one intends to do; a determination; a resolution or resolve; the object for which something or someone exist; with a specific outcome in mind; something not done byaccident.


Each day we all strive to accomplish something in life:  to be better at our work; to be a better husband or father, a better wife and mother; a better studentThere is a reason that we all get up each morning.  It is easy to place a value on whatever it is that we do in life.  But in doing so, do we place the same value on striving to find God’s purpose for our lives?


King Solomon once said, “Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.”

(Proverbs 19:21)


The early Christians were “filled with wonder and amazement” (Acts 3:10). Why?  Because they let the Spirit of God guide their lives.  Daily they were amazed at what they were able to do as God worked through them.  The morethey witnessed his wonder, the more they relied upon Him.  And they allowed Him to accomplish amazing things through them.  The same is true of us today in the church.  It is also only through our Helper, our Advocate that our bestcan be accomplished.  The presence of God in our lives provides the supernatural experience and power that allows us to accomplish “more than we can ask or imagine (Eph 3:20)”.


Why not experience the final step of living fully within the peace, joy, power and purpose of God and release His ultimate promise in your life?  Why not seek His purpose for you life?  Why not make Him your reason for getting up each morning?


“We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”  (Romans 8:28)


May your daily walk with God be one of purpose and by design!
