God’s purpose for my life – Prayer for September 14. Praise the Lord everybody! Have you ever asked yourself, “what is my purpose in Christ?” How to know God’s purpose for my life? Focusing on that purpose that assignment keeps from looking to the left or to the right, both are filled with the distractions of this world. It is that purpose that keeps us going through life.
Bible Verse for Today
“Now it came to pass when Sanballat, and Tobiah, and Geshem the Arabian, and the rest of our enemies, heard that I had builded the wall, and that there was no breach left therein; (though at that time I had not set up the doors upon the gates;) That Sanballat and Geshem sent unto me, saying, Come, let us meet together in some one of the villages in the plain of Ono. But they thought to do me mischief. And I sent messengers unto them, saying, I am doing a great work, so that I cannot come down: why should the work cease, whilst I leave it, and come down to you? Yet they sent unto me four times after this sort; and I answered them after the same manner.” (Nehemiah 6:1-4)
Nehemiah was a purpose driven Christian. Nehemiah knew he was charged with the rebuilding of the walls of Judah and he would not be deterred. A lot of us know what God has charged us with, what our callings are but we somehow never got started or we came down off the wall to deal with some trumped up distraction orchestrated by the enemy or we got tired of “well doing” and abandoned our task.
We must remember our purpose, what we are doing and why we are doing it. We fall off the wall because we are not fully committed for various reasons. Nehemiah was fully committed to seeing the job through to the end. He could have come down for a break, he was almost finished, but he finished the work and he and his people were blessed.
His enemies lost heart because they saw he was committed to Gods work and that God was committed to helping him. The time has come for staying on the wall, staying on task, the task that God has charged YOU with. If you’re up there stay up there but if you have fallen off or come down and wandered away on your own for whatever reason remember your purpose, what God has called you to do.
Say to yourself “I want to be a purpose driven Christian like Nehemiah”. When you are tempted, say “Why should I come down? I’m doing a good work and why should that stop?”
So, let’s all remember God’s purpose for my ilife and get back up and stay on the wall till our work is done. Amen! God bless you all.
