READ: Acts 20:16-27
“…To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.” – Matthew 7:20
Jesus knew why He was in this world. Even in times of great stress, He explained His life’s purpose. A mature Christian is someone who is constantly aware of his purpose. I am constantly aware of what God has called me to do. Every day of my life is spent trying to fulfill the calling of God on my life. When you are aware of what you are supposed to do, you are guided aright into spending your time appropriately.
Even when Jesus was a child, He said, “I must be about my father’s business” (Luke 2:49). Dear reader,what is your life’s purpose? Are you a businessman trying to make money? Then why does your business run like a charity? Why do you not cut your expenses and begin to make profits?
Are you a minister of the Gospel? Then do not be taken up with the love of money. Do the ministry even if you have to live in poverty. In a dream, I saw myself walking on a long road. Along this road were many heaps of gold. The Lord specifically told me, “Do not stop at any of these heaps. There are many heaps of gold on this road. There will be no need for you to stop by any of them.” You see, God was showing me that I should stick with my vision. He was telling me not to deviate into business or the search for money.
Are you a leader? Then let your vision fill your heart and mind so that you will not deviate from your original calling.
