Hello and welcome! This is the Geeks Under Grace daily devotional where we dive into the Bible everyday. We take devotionals from bible.com and read the verses, devotional, and give our own commentary. Sometimes we will have multiple writers, but most of the time it will be just me. I hope you enjoy and comment with your own commentary.
This devotional is titled “What Is God’s Purpose For My Life?”. It is only 3 days long. I use the ESV bible but feel free to use the version of your choosing.
“Now the Lord said to Abram, “Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you.”
1 Corinthians 9:12
“If others share this rightful claim on you, do not we even more?
Nevertheless, we have not made use of this right, but we endure anything rather than put an obstacle in the way of the gospel of Christ.”
“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.”
God’s greatest desire is for Him to be glorified through your relationship with Him through Jesus Christ. Your purpose and destiny will unfold as you turn to God daily through prayer, study, worship, and guidance of the Holy Spirit.
One of the best ways to know God’s specific purpose for your daily life is to read about Him and what He has to say. Because God’s Word holds countless layers of insight and meaning, it never grows stale. He will speak to you by bringing certain words, phrases, or verses to your attention. The more you grow in your relationship with Him, the more insights you will have into His character and how He operates.
Another part of understanding your daily destiny is to live in a righteous and biblical manner where God has placed you, and to do so consistently.
A third opportunity to understand your purpose is to realize that every Christian is called to an active ministry. That doesn’t mean we will all be full-time preachers or missionaries. But with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you are to share the gospel through your words and conduct. Take a moment now through this link to participate in a brief guided time of reflection that will help you know how to better experience prayer, study, and worship to discover His plan for you.
Those three things mentioned in the beginning of the devotional are key. Prayer, study, and worship. Want God to speak to you? Then there you go. Your flesh may not want to do it, but like vegetables it is good for you. God will make His purpose for your life abundantly clear and as anyone who knows their purpose can attest to, you will know when it is Him. He won’t lead you astray and have you do anything you are not capable of doing with Him.
