The Power of purpose

Purpose Is Powerful


“I cry out to God Most High, to God, who fulfills [his purpose] for me. He sends from Heaven and saves me, rebuking those who hotly pursue me; God sends His love and His faithfulness.”(Ps. 57:2-3).

Purpose can be defined as determined intention and that which is set up as an objective to be reached or accomplished. Purpose is powerful because it comes with power, potential and design for its fulfillment. Inside a small acorn is the potential of a large oak tree. Oak trees are used to make furniture, build houses, store wine, preserve fish, meat, cheeses and other foods. All this potential and purpose are inside a small acorn.

You are designed intentionally by God for His divine purpose and yours. Your purpose makes you distinct, unique and valuable. Purpose has prevailing power; preserving power; and providing power. God is committed to you and your purpose. The Bible declares: “Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails.” (Prov. 19:21); “The plans of the LORD stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations.” (Ps. 33:11); “So is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” (Is. 55:11).  

Your purpose was created and secured by God. His purpose for your life was established before you were born. “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” (Jer. 1:5). Your purpose makes you powerful and significant. No one can destroy your purpose. You have the power to create, design and fulfill your purpose. Pray, create, design, seek help and have faith in God and in yourself. You were born for such a time as this. You are born to make our world a better place.
