Knowing Your Purpose and Staying Focused..
I would like to talk to you this morning about Knowing Your Purpose so that you will be able to Stay Focus and not let the devil steal the purpose that God has placed over your life.
And in order to be successful you have to indeed be willing to go beyond the natural man and your natural way of thinking.
In the book of Matthew chapter 9:20-22
20And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment:
21For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole.
22But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.
There are 3 key things that I want you to learn from this woman from the book of Matthew.
1: She knew what her purpose was and she stayed focused. She knew she had and illness she knew she need healing, and she knew who her healer was Jesus was her source and everything else that she had tried for 12 long years was just a resource.
2: She had faith to produce her purpose see you have to understand that she had been dealing with her issue for 12 long years she spent all her many she had seen doctor after doctor.
But her purpose her faith said but if may but touch his garment I shall be made whole. And can I be honest with you for just a moment her 12 year long struggle lets us know that deliverance dose not all ways come over night.
3: she had to stay focused in order to confess her healing she had to pushed her way through in order to reach her healer and that lets us know as believers we have pray and stay focused for what God has for our lives.
It says that when she went out in search of Jesus she came to a crowd and how many of you know that just when you get to the point of your break through the devil will throw you a curb ball.
But we have to be like the women we must push our way through we have to be determined she was determined to get what Jesus had for her she was determined to get her blessing or you determined today to get your blessing.
See life sometimes can get so rough that it will make you want to give up it ah make you cry out for Jesus sometimes even our past mistakes will distract us from our purpose but can I tell you today it does not matter what you used to do what you used to be we all were an x something.
But by the grace and the mercy of God he took that x and he added some grace and some mercy and stood you up tall cause you do know when you take the letter x and turn it up right it becomes a t the sign of the cross.
See you need to know that many of the bible warriors throughout history were an x something and God used them in spite of their pass mistakes for example.
Moses had committed murder the devil tried to steal his purpose but God said he was a leader and choose him to lead the children of Israel to the promise land.
Levi committed murder in the book of Genesis and in fact he was cursed because of it but God said he was a priest and in fact not only was he a priest but the first priesthood was established through him and his descendents.
Peter the man who denied even knowing Jesus not once but 3 times God used him to establish the church.
Mary Magdalene the women who had committed adultery the devil not only wanted to destroy her purpose he wanted to take her life But Jesus step in right on time and she became the first women disciple to walk along side Jesus through his ministry.
Knowing Your Purpose and Staying Focused
Great message - maybe you should make it into a hub. It is long enough.
What is the purpose of Life for each and every one of us?
For us ourselves to become Life....
The reality of it all is that each of Us will fullfill that purpose for which Life has ordained for each of us.
But sadly many will fullfil their purpose though they themselves are totally ignorant of what that true purpose is....
This is so because they are ignorant of Life itself and are without the kingdom of God.
But those who fulfill their purpose with the full knowledge of what that purpose is are those that belong to the kingdom of God.
This is what is meant by living and walking by faith...
-Living and fulfill the One purpose of Life with the full knowledge that you yourself are Life and a part of Life-
The enemy of this knowledge is the rules which men has made for themselves....eg the carnal laws within and without religious circles.
So life is only about ONE single law and that is Spiritual.
