Purpose

Oswald Chambers has already written what I wished to say today. Enjoy this quote from the March 5 entry in My Utmost for His Highest.

“Joy comes from seeing the complete fulfillment of the specific purpose for which I was created and born again, not from successfully doing something of my own choosing…We each have to find a niche in life, and spiritually we find it when we receive a ministry from the Lord. To do this we must have close fellowship with Jesus and must know Him as more than our personal Savior…If you have received a ministry from the Lord Jesus, you will know that the need is not the same as the call-the need is the opportunity to exercise the call. The call is to be faithful to the ministry you received when you were in true fellowship with Him. This does not imply that there is a whole series of differing ministries marked out for you. It does mean that you must be sensitive to what God has called you to do, and this may sometimes require ignoring demands for service in other areas.”

I wish you well in your pursuit of God and His purpose for your life. Don’t forget to be Abundantly His!
