Finding God’s Purpose for You

Jeremiah 33:3

“Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.”

Acts 15:18

Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world.

Today, you will learn how to find God’s purpose for your life. How do you find God’s purpose for your life? Finding God’s purpose for you begins with getting born again. You have to be saved because God’s purpose for you is in Christ. Christ is the embodiment of the knowledge and the wisdom of God. You must come into Christ to know God’s purpose for you, for except a man be born again, he cannot perceive the kingdom of God; God’s way of doing things (John 3:3).

Secondly, you have to receive the Spirit of God and be filled with the Holy Ghost. Being filled with the Holy Spirit offers you the privilege to receive divine utterance from Him to speak in other tongues. That’s very important because no man can know the things of God except by the Spirit of God. As you pray in other tongues, the Spirit of God will lead the way in showing you God’s original intent for you. He will show you the reason God made you the person that you are, the complexion that you have, the height, the special traits and characteristics that you possess (1 Corinthians 14:2-4; 2:9-14).

Thirdly, you have to study God’s Word. Jeremiah understood God’s plan for him through the ministry of the Word of God. The Bible tells us in Jeremiah 1:4-5 that, “the word of the Lord came unto Jeremiah saying, before I formed you in the belly I knew you and… I sanctified and ordained you a prophet unto the nations”. Now how did he know that? He knew it by the Word of God that came to him. As you pray and study God’s Word, the Spirit of God will bring the light of God’s plan to your awareness.


My Solid Front (Confession): Heavenly Father, I thank You that You have a great purpose for me, and as I pray, study the Word and lean on Your Spirit, You let me in on Your plan for me in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
