The power of intentional living – part 1

I have observed that many people do not live their lives intentionally. They pour themselves into projects, causes, hobbies and a plethora of activities but they lack the focus that only comes with Kingdom Purpose. And while all these other things are great, most people never discover God’s ultimate plan for their lives. The Apostle Paul said…

“…but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. —Phil 3:12-14  

You were created with the divine purpose of solving a problem. All greatness is the result of a person discovering a solution to a problem:

Mechanics solve car problems.
Dentists solve teeth problems.
Lawyers solve legal problems.
I.T. people solve computer problems.

I think you can see where I am going with this…

Christians are called to repair the world around them through the power of the Holy Spirit. So when you wake up every morning you need to realize that you were created to solve a problem. Kingdom Purpose comes when you realize this truth and then begin to see what problem you have the ability to solve. 

Let me share with you some important facts about your God given assignment. 

1. God is completely focused on your life, it’s journey, and your divine assignment (Psalm 139:3) 

2. God examines every word you speak. God is looking for faith filled words that He can connect with and empower (Psalm 139:4) 

3. The Holy Spirit will help you and is with you every day (Psalm 139:5).  With the Holy Spirit on your side you cannot fail, no matter how difficult the challenge (Psalm 139:11-13).

4. It is your responsibility to recognize and pursue your assignment (Romans 14:12).

5. God’s Word is the blueprint for success in fulfilling your assignment (Joshua 1:6-9).

I challenge you to spend time some quality time in prayer and really evaluate your dreams, goals and life purpose. Do you know your Kingdom Purpose? It doesn’t matter whether you are 18 or 85 God has a great plan and purpose for your life.
