God created each individual with a purpose in mind. We never have to live life aimlessly doing what doesn’t align with His will. Initially, when God showed me the plans He had for my life, I was fixated on the blessings and success it would add. Little thought was given to how it would be a blessing and benefit to others. We assume that the epitome of joy will accompany OUR success. The definition of success is different for each individual. What equates to success in your mind? Is it being able to travel the world, have peace, have a happy family, be debt-free, simply be in the will of God, etc? Fulfilling purpose attributes to YOUR definition of success but the greater fulfillment is when you can identify the advantage that your purpose will have in the lives of others. Remember, God never asks us to do anything on our own. Through Christ, we have the gift of Holy Spirit. The Spirit will help you to not only focus on yourself.
Philippians 2:4 NLT Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too.
Prayer for the Journey
Thank you Lord for allowing me to be a part of what you are doing on the earth. Your plan for my life is advantageous for others. Help me to see the bigger picture, that it is not just about me. May my life be of complete use to you.
In Jesus Name, Amen!
