I was at an event at my church this weekend that focused on finding our purpose. How do we know what our purpose is?
It’s in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ and got our hopes up, he had his eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living, part of the overall purpose he is working out in everything and everyone. Ephesians 1:11-12 (MSG)
I want to hear God’s voice clearly tell me that what I think he’s telling me to do is correct. I want to know that my new passion and vision of writing a book to glorify Him and help other women is the purpose he has for me. But how do we know if it’s really God or just our own desire?
God’s wisdom is something mysterious that goes deep into the interior of his purposes. You don’t find it lying around on the surface. It’s not the latest message, but more like the oldest—what God determined as the way to bring out his best in us, long before we ever arrived on the scene. 1 Corinthians 2:6-10 MSG
I pray and ask for wisdom. I pray that my passion for writing this book is the key to my purpose. I pray to ask if the discontent I feel in my current job is God nudging me to try something new.
So fellow bloggers, I want to know what you think. Is our purpose revealed to us as a test of faith?
