Do you look for purpose even in times of sorrow or pain? Pray to the Lord, cry out for Him and He will give the answer “Here I am.”
Pray today for God to reveal His purpose for you and quietly listen for His answer. If you hear an answer that seems unreasonable, pray for the faith to continue in your purpose and God will be your rear guard.
It would be really nice if we know in advance, what God’s will for you today is? But it doesn’t happen that way. During the great Israelite exodus from Egypt, God led Moses and the Israelite s each day by a pillar of cloud …
“By day the Lord went ahead of them in a pillar of cloud to guide them on their way and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so that they could travel by day or night. Neither the pillar of cloud by day nor the pillar of fire by night left its place in front of the people. ” (Exodus 13:21-22 NIV)
Today, we do not have pillar clouds to guide us, but we do have something far better, the Holy Spirit! As we listen to the Spirit through bible study, prayers, other Christians, or that nudge you get that can only be Him, the light turns on.
God speaks to each of us in His Word, and through our walk we learn to see Him and hear Him. “Coincidence” can be God speaking to us and saying, “Here I am.” Once we hear him, we can then begin our journey of Christ-centered purpose. Faith must be involved in this process as hearing and doing are different. Sometimes when we hear God and it’s not convenient for us or we’re unsure of what we are hearing, because of our circumstance, so we don’t act in faith. Remember, God loves us and everything through him serves His purpose and is for His glory! If He brings you to it, he will bring you through it!.
Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the Lord shall be thy rearward.be…: Heb. gather thee up
Then shalt thou call, and the Lord shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity;
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
Shew me thy ways, O Lord; teach me thy paths.
