God has a purpose for you

Updated on June 21, 2011

Maybe your life is very difficult at the moment and you would rather be somewhere else than where you are right now. Because you are experiencing difficulty, you are probably praying and asking God to change your situation or resolve your problem. And if nothing happens?

Have you considered that God may have placed you in your current situation with a specific purpose? That maybe you are exactly the person that has to be in that place at exactly the right time so that through you He can change the circumstances by His Spirit and wisdom?
If everything is in chaos right now, don’t entertain thoughts of despair and defeat, but rather ask God what He expects of you. If you ask God for His perfect will for your life, He has His ways of making His will known to you so that you may obey Him.

Does He want you to establish peace where there is disagreement? Must you display His power to those who are weak? Must you show understanding where there is none? Must you show faith and loyalty to Him where everyone is false?

It is very important at this time that you don’t become despondent and negative. Ask yourself has being negative about anything ever changed the situation? Have you ever had a problem which was resolved by your negativity? Remember, being negative is like taking poison and expecting someone else to die. It’s always going to kill you and only you!

You may have suffered many losses because of your circumstances, but if your loss brought you to God and to His will for your life, then actually you own much more now than what you’ve lost. God sometimes makes a storm rise in our life’s to strip us of all our earthly help and excess so that we may take refuge with Him. And when you are feeling weak, God has a word of encouragement for you, “And He said to me, My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore I will rather glory in my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may overshadow me. Therefore I am pleased in weaknesses, in insults, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake; for when I am weak, then I am powerful.” (II Cor 12:9-10)

In closing I just want to ask that before you ask God again to change your situation, make sure that the place where you are now isn’t exactly the place where God needs you. And remember my friend, friends are there to comfort you, and enemies (difficulties) are there to promote you.

Be blessed!!!!!
