Fighting 4 Purpose
Hello Ladies! I pray that you are doing well this week. Today, is August 1, and we are beginning our new series titled, "Fight 4 Purpose."
As women we have to be sure that we Fight 4 Purpose. Life is not going to lay purpose at your feet for you to just grab and run with it. It is going to take resilience, determination, and passion to pursue and develop the nature of your purpose. How do you do that?
I was talking with a young lady today, and she said that she is ready to walk in her purpose. What was interesting was she said that God had revealed her purpose to her a long time ago, but she ran from it. However, now she is in a position where she is looking at her life and sees how time has gone by, and she is ready to go after her purpose. I was happy for her, and I encouraged her to do just that. She began to tell me about the new decisions and choices that she had started to make. I thought it was amazing that the moment she said yes, God began to lead her to how to get it done. She and I know that there is so much more for her to do, but her yes has put her in a position and a mindset to walk into her destiny. The first step that is an indication that you have begun the fight is your YES. Your yes places you in a position to move forward into becoming who God has created you to be.
God is our creator, and we just have to allow him to work on us to create something beautiful, which is the picture he had in mind from the beginning.
Purpose- the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists.
Fight- to contend in any manner; strive vigorously for or against something:
Therefore, Fighting 4 Purpose is contending vigorously for that which God has created you to be.
WOW! So, have you said yes? If you have and it has met challenge, have you slacked because you thought it would be easy? Don't give up! I have heard that anything worth having is worth fighting for! Thus, I regret to inform you that you have an enemy in the devil who will work to attack you mentally, physically, spiritually, and emotionally for you to give up on your purpose. You can't let him win! The obedience of every man or woman in the Bible had an impact on so many others. Your decision to say yes to your purpose, will impact many others.
This month we will unpack what it means to Fight 4 Purpose. Ephesians 2:20 (NIV), "10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." Everyone of us has a purpose, and God desires to reveal it to you and give you the power to accomplish it. He does not leave you alone, but he will give you wisdom, knowledge, resources, and people to help you make all of it a reality. Did you know that true fulfillment comes in God and walking in your God given destiny? Your purpose may not look like mine or your neighbors, but God has made you for something greater than yourself.
Today, says YES to your purpose. Don't run! Walk into Destiny!
