Episode #19 is live
What does God want you to do with your life?
There’s a big difference between you trying to figure out what you want to do and listening for what God’s purpose for you is.
In the Bible, there’s no way Moses, Gideon, Esther, Elisabeth and Zacharias, Mary and Joseph, or Paul could have set a goal to end up doing what God chose them to do. There was no way for them to know what it would be.
The same is true for us. Even with all your great efforts of goal setting, you won’t be able to figure out what God’s plans for you are unless you ask for His help.
How can you discover your God given purpose?
In this episode I share some specific ideas on how you can find God’s purpose for you. It’s not so hard. It just takes spiritual obedience.
Please share this with a friend.
