February Monthly Scripture Memorization Challenge:
After I looked things over, I stood up and said to the nobles, the officials and the rest of the people, “Don’t be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your families, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your homes.” Nehemiah 4:14
Weekly Devotional (February 17-23)
We all are in need of God’s purpose. Without it we are just wondering around aimlessly, lazily, without focus and without….purpose. I sometimes look at purpose as just a word wrote on some paper and that’s that.
The definition of purpose is–the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists. That very definition does define who we are meant to be…period.
We are always living in God’s purpose. God is God and He works all things, including our lives, according to His purposes.NOTHING can happen without God ordaining it. He gives us free will to go about our days one at a time, day by day, BUT ultimately HE knows what we are going to do.
So our purpose is to live our lives according to His will and it would be MUCH MUCH easier with His help rather than go it alone! I need to keep this at the forefront of my life and I have NOT been as diligent as I have been in the past digging my nose into His word, something that I MUST rectify.
Memory Verse: Psalm 57:2 says, “I cry out to God Most High, to God who fulfills his purpose for me.”
