Discovering life’s Purpose

1 Peter 4:11 ~  If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.

If you watch people who are fulfilling their life’s assignment, their motivation is high. They have amazing endurance to overcome obstacles. They are growing and learning. There’s real joy in what they do! To miss out on your life’s assignment is to miss out on the way God made you. Whether your job is in the church or business, you are gifted and called by God. Here are some questions to help you find your life’s calling.

  1. What’s the raw material? God has given you certain temperaments and talents, you have to honor your raw material.
  2. What unlocks your compassion? There’s a big difference in doing what God’s called you to do or doing what others want you to do. Knowing what your called to do often starts with discovering what you’re not called to do. When you accept your limitations, your on the road to understanding your life’s assignment.

Therefore let’s be clear; you have an assignment. It’s to do what God’s wired you to do. You must seek it with an open mind. When we pretend to be something w are not, we live with a chronic sense of inadequacy, consequently setting up a life time of frustration.

Your life’s assignment is something you discover, not something you choose!
