How To Discover Your Purpose in Life [Catching a Vision Of Who You Are]

Until you locate the purpose of any product, that product will always fail and won’t work for you because a product cannot function efficiently outside what it’s being created for.
To discover what a product is for and how it works, you’ve got to

  • ask the manufacturer,
  • refer to the manual accompanying the product,
  • ask those who know about the product, or
  • you make research.
  • Understand that you’re a product made by the manufacturer, you can’t decide what to become, you discover it. Most persons wouldn’t want to bow to this fact and that’s why they are failing big time but hear me now, you have a maker who said, “…before I formed thee, I knew thee…”{Jeremiah 1:4}. He formed you alone hence, He knows you alone. You are unique and you remain the original copy of who you are regardless the nature of your birth. Your loved ones, teachers or mentors did not make you hence they have no right of telling you who you are. No matter how poor, bad, rejected, or disfigured you’re, your manufacturer has a plan for you, which is “…a thought of peace and not of evil to give you an expected end“{Jeremiah 29:11}. No matter how wicked a manufacturer might be, you don’t expect him to sit down to make something that he expects to fail, how much more your righteous heavenly father.
    You don’t have any rights telling your maker who you want to become or rejecting His purpose for a pot can never be greater than the potter hence He said “woe is he that striveth with his maker”{Isaiah 45:9} for, “…my counsel shall stand and I will do my pleasure”{Isaiah 46:10}

    So, how do you locate your purpose?

    BE BORN AGAIN: This is the first step to discovering your purpose as this gives you a divine connection to God. Please never try to infer that not having a divine connection to God means that He’s no longer your creator.

    PRAY: The scriptures said, “Ask me of things to come concerning my sons and concerning the works of my hands, command ye me”{Isaiah 45:11}

    PRAISE: God lives in praise and when you praise Him He comes down to you. Whenever He’s with you, expect to hear from Him.

    READ THE BOOK:The bible is a very special book from God that can help you discover you. Christ and John the Baptist discovered their purposes via the book. Go and look into that book because until you look into it, no one looks at you.

    READ OTHER ANOINTED BOOKS: Daniel used this and it worked for him-“…I Daniel understood by books…”{Daniel 9:2}. You too can.

    ENGAGING THE HOLY GHOST: “I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh…your young men shall see visions”{Joel 2:28}. A young man is someone with 6 years like Samuel and 100 year’s because they both saw visions between this age range.

    Causes Of Poverty

    To every condition enjoyed or endured on earth, there is always a reason for it and so does poverty. To me, poverty is more than unemployment, and also beyond leaving below a dollar per day. Poverty in my own terms, is a disease of living below your supposed financial means. I shall be sharing with you some of causes of this deadly disease which are

    NOT SERVING GOD
    : Poverty brings sorrow and the scriptures said, “the sorrow Of them that hasten after other gods shall be multiplied”[Psalms 16:4] but the scriptures said, “if you obey Him and serve Him, you will spend your days in prosperity”[Job 36:11]

    THE FALL
    : After Adam and Eve sinned, the ground was cursed but Jesus came to redeem us from the curse of the law. So, accept Him as your personal saviour.

    NOT TITHING
    : When you don’t pay your tithe, you lay a curse Of poverty upon youself.

    SATAN AND HIS AGENTS
    : Remember the parable Of the seed when a man planted good seeds but at night, the enemies came and planted tares.(Matthew 13:24-30) but you can “take the shield Of faith in order to quench all the fiery darts Of the wicked”[Ephesians 6:16]

    STEALING
    : “He that hasteth to be rich hath an evil eye and considereth not that poverty shall come upon him”[Proverbs 28:22]

    WRONG COMPANY
    : “…he that followeth after vain persons, shall have poverty enough”[Proverb 28:19]


    PARENTAL CURSES
    : When a parent places a curse on his child be sure it’s going to follow that person.

    LAZINESS
    : “He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand…”[Proverbs 10:4]

    WASTEFULNESS
    : “A waster is brother to him that is lazy”[Proverbs 18:9]

    GREED
    : ‘There is that scattereth and yet increaseth: and there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty…”[Proverbs 11:24]

    God prosper you.

    Making Your Praises Work For You

    Most times, when people praise God in church, they just do it as a normal routine activity or just entertainment but that is not praise. Until you set your heart to impress God and to do it as a way of showing appreciation, you are not doing praise. No matter how sweet your voice is or how fanciful your dance is, God never looks at you.

    To praise God
    you don’t necessarily have to dance to the tune of the song,
    do not look at the people around you,
    don’t consider your status whether governor, president etc because one day, you will become ex- whatever you think you are but the God you are praising can never become an ex-God.

    Praise is the only thing God cannot give to Himself hence, He honours it whenever you’re giving it to Him.

    It might interest you to know that God lives inside praise. When your praise Goes up, He comes down just as He did when Paul and Silas praised Him no wonder there was an earthquake.
    The children of Isreal praised Him, He showed up and the wall od Jericho fell.

    Prayers puts you incharge but praise puts God incharge.
    -“Thou art holy thou that inhabitest(live in)the praises of your people”{Psalms 22:2}.

    So now, how do you make your praise work For you?
    BE BORN AGAIN: If God live inside praise, do you expect Him to dwell in a sinful environment?

    BE MEEK: Meekness is dancing like king David [2 Samuel:20-22]-“Let them praise Him in the dance…He will beautify the meek[dancing SOLDIERlously] with salvation[general deliverance+grace]”{Psalms 149:3-4}

    BE THANKFUL: “Enter into His gate with thanksgiving and into His court with praise”{Psalms 100:4}. God doesn’t stay at the gate but before you get to the court where He stays, you need to cross the gate.

    BE JOYFUL: In the presence of God, there is fullness of joy.

    BE EXPECTANT: Praise is the plural of pray so expect something.

    Understanding Spiritual Gifts

    There are several spiritual gifts being given out by God to born again christians.

    All these gifts come from the same spirit and the spirit is called The Holy Spirit.

    ‘Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same spirit'[1 Corinthians 12:4].

    After anyone receives Christ, at least one spiritual gift must be given to that person and this gift would serve as a sign.

    ‘Wherefore tongues{and other gifts} are for a sign…'[1 Corinthians 14:22].

    Different gifts are for different purposes and God distributes these gift at His own will.

    ‘But all these worketh, that one and the selfsame spirit, dividing to everyone as He will'[1 Corinthians 12:11].

    Spiritual gifts are not permanent.

    ‘…whether there be prophecies, they shall fail: whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away'[1 Corinthians 13:8].

    Having a spiritual gift is not a guarantee that you will make heaven.

    You can ask God for any particular spiritual gift and receive it.

    ‘But covet earnestly the best gift…'[1 Corinthians 12:31]

    Spiritual gifts can be impacted from one person on another in different dimensions. Elijah impacted his on Elishah in double dimensions. Moses also impacted on Joshua. Paul also did.

    ‘And when Paul had laid his hands on them, the Holy Ghost came on them: and they spake with tongues and prophesied'[Acts 19:6].
