Day 131 – Understand Your Purpose


‘And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.’ Habakkuk 2:2

‘The Lord answered me …’ It is a promise from God. If you ask Him about the purpose of your life He will answer you. The verse goes on to say ‘…Write the vision, and make it plain…’ As you hear God write it down, but also seek understanding.

Note these points when seeking the purpose of your life:

  1. Pray; ask the Lord for direction
  2. Listen for what God will say
  3. Hear what God is saying to you specifically
  4. Seek understanding of what He has said

These specific steps will help you clearly write the vision that God shows you, so it can be very plain to you. Then you will be able to run with it. This principle can be applied in every segment of your life – what course to study in college, where to live, who to marry, what business to do, or career to pursue, what ministry you are called to fulfil, etc.

Your first priority is to invest time to understand what God has purposed for your life. So, today slow down, ask from God, listen for what He says (it may come in bits and pieces), write it down as you hear God, and seek His face for clear understanding.  As you do this, you are laying a solid foundation for your purposeful, peaceful and prosperous life ahead. God bless your day.
