5 truths about faith in God that help you boldly live your purpose
God has a plan for your life
Your life isn’t an accident and you’re not here by chance! God has a purpose and a role in his kingdom designed specifically for you. When you have a strong faith in God and seek the Lord for His best, He is faithful to reveal his plan piece by piece.
However, this isn’t something that happens overnight. You must pursue the Lord and seek to have a relationship with Him.
This comes through reading His Word and regularly communicating with Him in prayer. Through regular fellowship with the Lord, God begins to reveal His plan for you.
More than anything, He wants you to have a personal relationship with Him. Think in terms of how you’ve built your relationship with your spouse, or even your best friend. You don’t call them once and now all of a sudden you know everything about them and the benefits of being yoked with them.
Nope. You build that relationship with ongoing communication and seeking to know and love them. It is then that you see and reap the benefits of that friendship/relationship.
It’s the same way in your relationship with the Lord. Put Him first and make Him Lord of your life. Then, watch how He reveals himself to you over time.
Remember Jeremiah 29:11, For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
God loves you and longs for you to experience an abundant life in Him
Through your relationship with Christ, you can have an abundant life this side of heaven!
However, the lies from the enemy can keep you from experiencing real freedom from shame, guilt, and failure if you’re not careful!
As a woman who loves God, it’s crucial to renew your mind with Scripture truth and stand firm on God’s promises at all times. The enemy is lurking around every corner, trying to get you to give up or give in to temptation.
Yet when you replace the lies of the enemy with the truth of God, it’s there where the true battles of spiritual warfare are won.
Then, you remember that the Lord is the key to finding joy in hardship, hope in the hard times, and freedom from lies of the enemy!
And only then, you can begin to experience the abundant life God has for you by surrendering your dreams to Him, trusting Him for complete soul satisfaction, and applying Scripture to all areas of your life.
God wants you to live generously
Do you live your life with open hands as a woman of God? God calls each of us to live generously with our time, money, and talents.
As a believer, we need to hold our lives and material possessions loosely, trusting God will provide. Even in those moments when He doesn’t seem to show up, He is working on our behalf, and He usually comes through in a mighty way. Being generous also says that you trust Him enough to sacrifice the way He’s generously given to you, with no strings attached.
Being a cheerful and generous giver keeps our focus on the One who gives and helps shine Jesus to a lost and broken world.
Your life should be lived as an overflow of the freedom and grace you experienced at the cross. As daughters of the King, we are to hold this world with open hands and trust God in all seasons, even in times that are lean.
God wants you to seek His will and follow Him
Part of seeking God’s will is surrendering your hopes and dreams at His feet. As a daughter of the King, make praying for wisdom and discernment a cornerstone of your daily prayer time.
James 1:5 reminds us that God is faithful to show you the way to go and give you wisdom if you ask.
If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. James 1:5
Then you’re able to discern God’s plan and take bold leaps of faith to follow where He’s leading you.
Always remember that although you can’t see how your story ends or even the entire path where He leads, the Lord is trustworthy! He alone holds the future in His mighty hands!
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. Ecclesiastes 3:11
God wants you to share the Good News
One of the greatest commissions that we as Christians have ever received is to share the Good News with others. While many search for their purpose and wonder about their next steps, as a believer, it’s our mission here on earth to share the message of redemption in Jesus to all.
While this may not seem easy or feel comfortable, pray for the confidence to boldly share the Gospel and eventually disciple others to do the same. By doing so, you are laying your own desires down to make your life’s purpose about making Him known and sharing the Good News of Jesus.
May these five truths richly bless you and help you to have faith in God so that you can live out your purpose!
