Unless we know God’s purpose in our life, we cannot understand how life really works.
“We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him,
WHO HAVE BEEN CALLED according to His PURPOSE.” Romans 8:28 (NIV)
How is our work helping us to do our mission from God? Are we able to keep our focus on God’s Kingdom while we are working on the advancement of our career? “What do people really get for all their hard work?” Ecclesiastes 3:9 (NLT)
A stronghold is a mental block. It can be a worldview, such as materialism etc. or a personal attitude. “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?” (Jeremiah 17: 9).
Our devotion reflects our commitment to a clear set of godly core values. “This I say for your own benefit… but to promote what is appropriate and to secure undistracted devotion to the Lord” (1 Corinthians 7:35).
The generation behind us is the greatest resource God has given us to equip, train, and prepare to be the next line of warriors when we are gone. We all then have a responsibility of raising up the next generation to come and follow God. How do we put this huge responsibility into action?
God calls me to become mature like His Son Jesus Christ. “For God knew his people in advance, and he chose them TO BECOME LIKE HIS SON, so that his Son would be the firstborn, with many brothers and sisters.” Romans 8:29 (NLT)
