Happy Thursday to you!

This is a follow-up post to the letter to a person of purpose. If you haven’t read that message, click the aforementioned link. Many of you are at different phases of your journey. Some of you have just discovered your purpose. Some of you are seeking out the necessary resources to carry it out. Meanwhile, others of you have been living in your purpose for years. Nevertheless, I am certain that today’s message is vital at every stage. Since you are a person in pursuit of a fulfilling life, you will need to refer to this post often. Therefore, be sure to bookmark this post, print it out, frame it, and put it on your wall. Whatever you do, let these words take root in your heart. 

As God presents you with more opportunities to lift up His name on various platforms, you will be required to spend more time in His presence. You need to be able to hear His voice to [adequately] carry out His instructions. If you are not taking time to hear from God, you run the risk of spreading your agenda instead of His. There is a set time for you to publicize what God has laid on your heart. However, there is also an opportune time for you to be quiet and listen to God's instructions. In addition, learn the difference between an instruction God gives for you to follow and an instruction He gives you to share with others. Not every instruction God gives you is for your followers. If you do not have an intimate relationship with God,  you will not be able to discern which is which. The success of your current and future endeavors is dependent upon your obedience to God. You can try to attain various achievements without Him. Nonetheless, you will never reach the optimal level of success without God's leadership. 

Person of purpose, have you designated time at this juncture to seek God? If not, now is the time to get back to prayer and bible study. Now is the time for you to seek God intensely. Words cannot express how blessed your life will become after you hear from God and carry out His instructions.



Jeremiah 29:12 Then when you call upon me and come and pray to me, I will hear you. 13 When you search for me, you will find me; if you seek me with all your heart, 14 I will let you find me, says the Lord, and I will restore your fortunes and gather you from all the nations and all the places where I have driven you, says the Lord, and I will bring you back to the place from which I sent you into exile.
