20 Bible Verses To Pray For God’s Will and Purpose
Today we will be dealing with 20 Bible Verses To Pray For God’s Will and Purpose.
Many people have lost the purpose of God for their lives. They are living below God’s standard and expectations for their lives. There is a method by which God operates, but as long as people keep choosing to do things in a worldly manner, they will never achieve the purpose of God for their lives.
For my thought are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD meaning that God’s ways of doing things is different from man’s ways. God does not think like man does. In fact, the Bible says His foolishness is wiser than men (1 Corinthians 1:25). You cannot achieve His purpose by trying to do things with worldly wisdom; you will end up missing it. Don’t try to copy others, copy the One who called you. Jesus achieved His purpose for coming to earth because He was focused.
For believers, young ministers of the gospel, don’t try to do things the way you’ve seen other popular ministers do things,your calling is not as theirs.For those who are teaching deep theology, at the end of the sermon, when you ask the people what they learnt, they would just say, “Oh, Pastor was on fire today”; there was no real change in the lives of people. My beloved, don’t follow the crowd. Hebrews 12:2 says, “Looking unto Jesus the author and the finisher of our faith.
We see some spiritual men of God, music ministers, who started well, singing great spiritual songs that attract the Spirit of God, but then they move on to those that will move the crowd and preach just to amuse the congregation and not to please God in their preaching, and if you notice, their ministries begin to go down from there on. Be wise; if you want to have a long-lasting impact and eventually fulfill you destiny, do everything God’s way and not the way the world does it.
