Sometimes, distractions from purpose do not come from outside or external factors; they come from within you. Indeed it is possible to distract yourself from your mission and purpose while you’re busy doing activities around that same purpose. Confused? Don’t be.
Activities can be deceptive. It keeps us busy. It makes us look busy. But a lot of times, we are running around in circles, wearing ourselves out trying to do things that God has already sorted out if only we paid closer attention to our inner communication with God and follow his leading.
“You can make many plans, but the Lord’s purpose will prevail.” – Proverb 19:21
Some people have interpreted this verse to mean that no matter the plans we have, God’s purpose and plans always trumps it.
Taking it rather literally, they believe and have convinced many others to believe that our plans are always different from God’s purposes and so, God’s only duty is to veto every plan we make. That’s how you hear things like: “man purposes but God disposes”.
How passionate are you about your community or your industry? God has placed you where you are to be a light and there is a purpose for you there.
This podcast points to one way you can find your purpose and the first step you take as you get set to walk in it.
God bless you as you listen and share!
