Rev Innocent Chukwudi Peace-Udochukwu President Living Fountain Ministries Int’l LIFOM
“Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.”
1 Corinthians 12: 4-7
Every single person on this earth has been given a special gift from God. No two people are the same, and each of us has something unique to offer the world. The key is to discover what that gift is, and to use it for good.
Joseph and David are just two examples of people who discovered their gifts and used them for good.
Joseph’s gift of interpreting dreams allowed him to save his family and his people from starvation.
David’s gift of music allowed him to lead others in worship, inspire them with songs of hope and did several exploits.
Each of us has gifts that are just as important and valuable.
The point we want to make here is that God’s plans for our lives are unstoppable, and that includes the dreams and gifts that He has given us.
Even if we face challenges or setbacks, we can trust that God has a purpose for our lives.
No matter what obstacles we may face, God’s plans will never be thwarted. Just as Joseph and David faced difficulties and challenges, so will we.
But God’s purposes for us are greater than any difficulty we may face.
A good way to illustrate this point is through the story of Joseph in the book of Genesis. Joseph had a dream from God that he would one day rule over his family.
But on his journey to that destiny, he faced many challenges, including being sold into slavery and being imprisoned for a crime he didn’t commit.
Yet, even in the midst of those challenges, Joseph trusted that God’s plan for him was greater than any difficulty he faced.
Romans 8:28, says: “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
This verse reminds us that even when things don’t go according to our plans, God is still working for our good. He has a purpose for us, and nothing can thwart that purpose.
“Ephesians 2:6 says that we have been raised up and seated with Christ far above all principalities and powers. And in Ephesians 1:21-22, we are told that Christ has given us the same authority that he received from the Father.
This means that we have the authority to stand against the enemy and to fulfill the purposes that God has for us.
Even if we face challenges and difficulties, we can trust that God is working on our behalf.
Matthew 17:20, says, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
This verse shows us that even when we face challenges that seem insurmountable, with faith we can overcome them and move forward into God’s purpose for our lives.
One of the best ways to discover God’s purpose for our lives is through prayer and the study of his word. As we spend time with God in prayer and in reading the Bible, he will reveal his will to us.
The Bible says in Jeremiah 33:3, “Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.”
Another important way to discover God’s purpose for our lives is through seeking wise counsel from others who are walking with God.
“The first step in discovering God’s purpose for our lives is to take some time to reflect and ask ourselves some probing questions.
What are we passionate about? What talents and gifts has God given us? What causes or issues are we concerned about?
As we prayerfully consider these questions, we can begin to discern the unique purpose that God has for us.
This is not a one-time exercise, but a process of ongoing self-reflection and prayer.
As we seek to discover God’s purpose for our lives, let’s remember to be patient and to trust in his timing. God’s timing is not our timing, and his ways are not our ways. But he is faithful, and he has good plans for us.
So let’s commit to walking with him, listening to his voice, and trusting him to lead us into the purpose he has for us.
We can do this by reading his Word, praying, and seeking wise counsel from others.
As we move forward, let’s also remember to be bold and to take action. God has not called us to a life of passivity or inaction.
Instead, he has called us to step out in faith and to be a light in this world. So let’s ask him for boldness and courage, and let’s take the steps he has called us to take.
Even if we feel afraid or inadequate, we can be confident that God is with us and that he will give us everything we need.
“As we consider God’s purpose for our lives, let’s remember the truth of Philippians 1:6: ‘He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.’ We can trust that God is at work in our lives, even when we can’t see it.
So let’s keep moving forward, trusting him to bring about his purposes in his perfect timing.
His grace is sufficient for us, and his strength is made perfect in our weakness.
“God has given each of us a unique purpose, but it’s up to us to pursue it with all our hearts. We must be willing to take risks, to step out of our comfort zones, and to trust God with our future.
We should remember that our time on earth is short, and that we owe it to God to fulfill the purpose he has given us.
When we get to the end of our lives, we don’t want to have any regrets about what we didn’t do or what we left undone.
“To sum up, God has a purpose for each of us, and it’s up to us to discover and fulfill that purpose.
We need to seek God’s guidance and wisdom, to take bold steps of faith, and to rely on his strength to carry us through.
We can trust that God has our best interests at heart, and that he will help us to accomplish what he has called us to do.
The time is now to pursue God’s purpose for our lives. Will you join me in this journey?
“The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it.”
This verse emphasizes God’s faithfulness, and it reminds us that he is always working for our good. He will complete the work he has begun in us.
No matter what happens in our lives, we can have confidence in God’s faithfulness.
We may not understand his ways or see the bigger picture, but we can trust that he is working all things together for our good.
We can have peace, knowing that he is in control and that he has a purpose for our lives.
So let’s keep our eyes on him and trust him to bring about his good plan in his perfect timing.
