Understanding Purpose and God’s Plan

Thomas Edison invented the electric bulb. He is the manufacturer while the bulb is the product. He didn’t decide to make the electric bulb an electric bulb after forming it, instead, he made the decision before he started the formation process. So, every product has its manufacturer and every manufacturer has a purpose of manufacturing his product. You and I, we are all products manufactured by our manufacturer which is God hence He said, Before I formed thee in the belly, I knew thee and I ordained thee a…{Jeremiah 1:4}

So what is purpose?

THE REASON FOR YOUR EXISTENCE

Just as in the passage above, God said he had already known you before your birth and had already ordained you for a particular thing which is your purpose.

YOUR FINAL DESTINATION IN LIFE

“…For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate…”{Romans 8:28-30} Before you were manufactured, God didn’t only know you but He also programmed how you are to be and how He wants you to end in life hence He said, “I know the thoughts that I think towards you, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you an expected end“{Jeremiah 29:11} So, before you were born, your end was known to Him.

GOD’S PLAN FOR YOU

“According as he hath chosen us in Him before the foundations of the world”{Ephesians 1:4} He knew you. “Being predestined according to the purpose of Him that worketh all things according to the counsel of His own will” {Ephesians 1:11}He knows how you will end. “For we are His workmanship created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them”{Ephesians 2:10}


Purpose is not decided, instead it is discovered.
A stethoscope can never become an earpiece neither can a microwave become a television. If you do not know what a microwave is, you will always think it to be a television not because you’re a fool but because when the purpose of anything is not known, abuse is inevitable.

One of the greatest reason (if not the greatest) why people fail is the loss of purpose. If God who manufactured you made you to be a teacher, nothing can ever make you successful in life if you choose to become a doctor.

In my subsequent posts, I’m going to be talking more about this topic to give you an indepth undertaking of how you need to discover your own purpose, how to run with it and lots more.

How To Deal With Masturbation And Pornography

FLEE FROM EVERY APPEARANCE OF EVIL: What you see determines what you think. Fleeing not just physically but every part of you. Do away with those website, books, pop songs, devilis confessions, movies, devices… also remember to distance yourself from those friends who are not living right because evil communiaction corrupts good manners.

MAKE PUBLIC RESOLUTIONS: I don’t mean you go telling people about your condition but in times of altar calls in your church, seminars… come out boldly and declare right there to yourself in front of God’s altar that you are done with such additions. Make vows that will keep you in faith and be determined not to go back to your old ways. It takes a lot of courage to come out in public to confess your sins and to receive Christ but it brings the feel of seriousness and genuity hence spuring you to hold fast.

FORGET IT AND SHUN FEAR: Is it really possible to forget? Yes. Just live your normal life with God and stop thinking you have a problem. This is faith. Interestingly most people can’t stop out of fear of themselves. You no longer trust yourself because you feel so guilty about it-but just move on for Jesus has already overcome for you.
Say that to the devil and he will flee.

PRODUCTIVE ENGAGEMENT: Personally I don’t think you enjoy this more than making money or some other things you like. Try to be more engaged in other things and with time you will lose interest. You love the internet so much but it happens to be your main reason for doing this? ok. Why don’t you start a blog & dedicate your time to being useful.

SPIRITUAL EXERCISES: This is an oppression of the devil and Jesus was called to deliver the oppressed so, call on Him for deliverance. Make kingdom service, fasting, prayer and praising God a lifestyle.

I hope this was helpful to you. Please share this with your friends and also remember to share or add your views. God bless you as you do so.

Wisdom For Financial Dominion

images-1To everything done in life, wisdom and understanding can never be neglected for without it, people perish. Financial dominion is made possible by knowing and having access to what others cannot access just as Job lamented in the days of adversity, “…in the days of my youth when the secret of God was upon my tabernacle”[Job 29:4]. Job said this because he knew what he had achieved via the divine secrets which he was operating with hence when things became tough, he was left with no other choice but to believe that he’d lost all the secrets. It takes divine wisdom to gain access to divine secrets. This gives birth to divine ideas. It is ideas that makes great men. Isaac had it and he became the first irrigation farmer, Joseph had it and he was made the prime minister, Daniel had it, and he remained one of the most successful politician in the history of the world. His wisdom ideas made him irreplaceable despite all the coups that took place during his days. Solomon riches and honour were all gotten on the platform of the divine wisdom given to him by God. For you to start enjoying financial dominion, there is someone you need to meet, there is something you need to say, there is a way you need to say it, there is a business you need to start, there is an ideal place to start that business… but do you really know all of these? The scriptures made us to understand that the steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord and also, the secret things belongs unto God. You must have tried so many means in order to make it in life, now is the time to let God lead you. All you need to do know is

  • surrender your life to Him
  • confess your sins
  • live a godly life

and then ask for His divine direction and wisdom, I bet you, your life has just changed. Congratulations.
