Living by Godís Purpose

God has a purpose for our lives and we have to rely on His perfect plan. We have to seek Him daily and ask for His guidance as we go about our daily lives. God has put into each of us gifts. We have to search within ourselves, read the word, seek His face ask for wisdom and understanding when we are not sure what we should do. We have to listen quietly for His voice to lead us. The Bible says in Ephesians 2:10, For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works which God has prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. God has appointed each of us for good works.

God has put in place a plan for all who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and are saved. The perfect plan will appear if we stand on His word, ď I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with my eye.Ē Psalm 32:8

We cannot be lazy, however, but we have to be active participants. We have to take responsibility for our actions that it lines up with the principles of God and we have to open our hearts and mind to receive.it. Ē Do not be like the horse or like the mule, which have no understanding, which must be harnessed with bit and bridle, else they will not come near you. Psalm 32:9 Godís word is not just for the hearing but also for the doing.

God used Moses to free the slaves and teach them the will of God. When Moses received the instructions on building the tabernacle he was responsible to put the plan in action. This is the same today for each one of us to carry out the plans God have for us. As we are faithful we long to hear Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your LordĒ Matthew 25:21

If you are not sure what Godís plan and purpose is for your life, continue to do what you are seeing written in the Bible. Keep the commandments and strive to live righteous. Show love to everyone you meet with no respect of person. Be an active member of a local church and faithfully tithe. If you line your life up with Godís plan, you will be purposely following His will and your purpose will begin to unfold.

God Bless!
