God has a purpose and a plan for your life and He designed you for that purpose. Whenever something or someone’s purpose is unknown, abuse is inevitable. If your purpose is unknown to you, someone else will decide what purpose they want to give you, and that is rarely in line with God’s plan. Luckily, there is no ministry big enough to stop God’s plan for your life. There is no business big enough, and there is no government big enough to stop God. I believe in honoring and respecting the leaders appointed by God, while always keeping in mind that we need to have more faith in God than in men.
After traveling the world, I have noticed that there is, sadly, one thing that people lack all over, and that is an intimate relationship with God. The only one that can help you find your purpose and make it happen for you is God – pursue Him! If we would pursue a relationship with God the way we pursue other people, we would experience a life-changing revival. Are you doing what God asked you to do, or are you doing good things that God never asked you to do?
Matthew 7:22 “Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your Name and in Your Name drive out demons, and in Your Name perform many miracles?’”
They walked with God once, but they wandered off. Do not confuse doing good works with God’s purpose for you. Pursue Him relentlessly and watch Him reveal His plans for you.
