#Purpose

“The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me; your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever.”

Psalm 138:8

“The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me.”
Say it with me.

“The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me.”

Don’t read it silently. Speak it aloud. Confidently.

What is the promise?
“The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me.”

Who will do this?
“The LORD will fulfill His purpose for me.”

What will He do?
“The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me?”

And who does God have a purpose for?
“The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me.”

Is God still working in our world?
Yes!

Are the actions of His hands random and reactive?
No. They have a purpose, a Grand Design.

Could God do this Grand Design without you?
Yes.

Does God want to or choose to?
No.

You are valuable to God both as His creation and as His child. And you have a role to play in what He is doing.

Will anything be left incomplete?
No.

And why are we given this gift of joining Him in His work?
“To show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.” (2 Cor. 4:7)

So, as we face opposition and persecution in doing God’s will, what should our view of suffering ought to be and why.

“We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies.” (2 Corinthians 4:8-10)

I do not know what role God has for you to play. Let’s be honest. You may not even know. But “I am sure of this, that He who began a good work in you will bring it to completion in the day of Christ Jesus” for “we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” (Php. 1:6; Ephesians 2:10)

So step out in boldness and in faith and say it once again.
“The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me.”
