Purpose Fulfillment

Written by Boyd Bailey

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- January 12, 2013

“I cry out to God Most High, to God, who fulfills his purpose to me.” Psalm 57:2

Providence has a personal purpose for His people. Our gracious God guarantees a grant of wisdom into His ways. He wants us to experience His eternal aims for His glory. Paul stated this principle of providential purpose fulfillment crystal clear when he stated with conviction, “…being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus” (Philippians 1:6). His purpose fulfillment started when we placed our faith in Jesus. This was our contract with Christ that placed the responsibility of fulfilling His purpose at the feet of our Heavenly Father. Our Lord finishes anything and everything He has begun since our belief in Him. Whatsoever the Lord takes in hand, He will accomplish. So we trust the Almighty with the fulfillment of His purpose for our life. Therefore, it is imperative that we intercede to understand Him.

Prayer positions us to harvest heaven’s purpose for our life. We cry out to the Most High because there is nothing, or no one, any higher. He is at the top. He is the divine decision maker. He is our Maker. There is no one else we can go to for an understanding of the purpose of providence for our life than the Lord Jesus Christ. Faith is not dumb. We pray because we believe there is a better way than our very limited wisdom. We can get by with the wisdom of the world, but we can thrive with the wisdom of Almighty God. We cry out to Christ because He has adopted us. He is our Heavenly Father from whom we define our purpose by His purpose for us. Prayer pulls out His purpose front and center.

Prayer to God is proof of our trust in God. When we send our prayers to heaven, God will send help down from heaven. Unless we pray, as well as trust, our trust will fail us. Trust can become trivial if persistent prayer does not back it up. Prayer brings trust into the reality of God’s promises and purpose for our life. Prayer is potent because it aligns us with the purposes of Almighty God. Moreover, once we understand His personal purpose, we can rest assured of His follow through of its fulfillment on our behalf. Furthermore, put pen to paper and prayerfully define your God-given purpose. Use this definition as a filter for decision-making. This becomes your accountability to God and others to say ‘no’.

Lastly, lean into the Lord to lead you in His purpose for your life. Once you have established His purpose for you, leverage that for others. Use your strength of position to help others discover their God-given purpose. Have them list their gifts, skills, passions and experiences. Pray with them of how God wants to collate their assets for Christ. Assure them that their Heavenly Father will fulfill His purpose for them, as He did with His own son at just the right time (Galatians 4:4, NASB). Be patient in the implementation of God’s purpose for your life. Remember you are living His purpose now. No season of life is insignificant in the Lord’s eyes. Don’t wish away where you are today. By faith, you can be sure that Christ is currently fulfilling your purpose. Make sure your goals are God-given and then trust Him with their fulfillment. A prayerful purpose is patient with God!

  5. I’m the proprietor of JustCBD brand (justcbdstore.com) and am planning to develop my wholesale side of company. I really hope that someone at targetdomain is able to provide some guidance . I considered that the most effective way to do this would be to talk to vape stores and cbd retailers. I was really hoping if someone could recommend a trustworthy web site where I can buy CBD Shops B2B Database with Emails I am currently checking out creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Unsure which one would be the very best choice and would appreciate any support on this. Or would it be simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?

    Next time I read a blog, I hope that it does not disappoint me just as much as this particular one. I mean, Yes, it was my choice to read through, but I actually believed you would probably have something useful to talk about. All I hear is a bunch of moaning about something that you can fix if you were not too busy searching for attention.
