FINDING OUR PURPOSE
This is the second part of a series of blog posts on The Limitless Potential of the Child of God. In Part 1, I established that we have the divine nature of God and that with the mind of Christ, we can understand what our God-given purpose is on earth. In Part 2, I will share my thoughts on how to find our purpose.
You will realize that you are not limited in your potential when you find and pursue your God-given purpose on this earth. Generally speaking, most people find their purpose when they come to an understanding of the events in the past and the present. Can you see a common thread of God’s direction in your life? Are there skills which seem to be more intuitive and natural to you? Is there something that you really love doing? How has God brought you to love what you do? Your purpose is usually the thing(s) that you love doing.
With an attitude of self-acceptance, you won’t first consider what others think you should be doing, rather the priority will be to do precisely what feels right for you. Even if the negative, doubtful reactions of people seem to make sense to you, if you’re seeking God’s perfect will, you will know what is true and right for you. God in you will empower you to stand firmly in your awareness of your purpose. You will know that you possess the inherent ability to do what you were put here to do as you will be convinced that there is no limit to your God-given potential. You will make your dreams – that is, what you are sure of in faith – a reality. You will think clearly and calmly and act creatively and effectively to make the transformation of that which you see through the eyes of faith come forth in reality. You cannot do it without faith in God and in the confidence He places in you to do it!
Take courage and liberate yourself from the limiting visions of this physical world. Connect with the Source of all creation and all power through your faith. See with the eyes of faith. Use the mind of Christ within you to gain a deeper understanding of your purpose here on earth and fulfill it. Paul implores us to “not be conformed to this world: but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is good and acceptable and the perfect will of God.” (Romans 12:2)
Begin rejecting any limiting thoughts that are undermining your faith or telling you that you cannot believe. You will find that as you see yourself abiding in God, your self-esteem and confidence will never be shaken. By God’s grace, you are who you are. You are “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14) in the image and likeness of God (Genesis 1:26). You are therefore a clear manifestation of God’s perfect and infinite love. You are empowered to act lovingly and in all goodness to achieve the unlimited potential which God has placed in you. With your awareness of this truth, you cannot have a negative image of yourself. You cannot feel disrespected, denigrated nor rejected by anything or anyone.
Armed with this awareness and conviction, success comes naturally and you live a victorious life in Christ knowing that the Kingdom of God is here on earth for you.
In Part 3, I will speak about overcoming obstacles to the fulfilment of your purpose.
