Psalm 27:4 (NKJV)
One thing I have desired of the LORD, That will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD All the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the LORD, And to inquire in His temple.
Acts 17:27-28 (NKJV)
One of my son’s favorite activities is to take paper (magazines, newspaper, napkins, etc…) and tear it to shreds. It is like he has an internal homing signal for paper. When he locks in, it is world war 3 and there are only fragments of paper left in the aftermath.
I believe that God has placed inside of every one of us a unique purpose with a homing signal for success.
When we get close or start to execute what we have been innately designed to do, something goes off inside of us that ignites a desire to do more.
What is the one thing that you desire?
When you operate in your God-designed purpose there is a certain peace about what you are doing. Your purpose energizes you beyond normal strength and allows you to work effortlessly.
I heard someone say, “Work at what you love and you will never work a day in your life!” I have been working at what I love for the past eleven years and I haven’t worked a single day yet!
In Psalm 27:4 David pens that his ONE and only desire is to set up permanent residence with Lord and bask in His beauty and intelligence.
Why would David so single-mindedly want to be there? He knew that in the presence of the Lord was total peace!
Many people have become job nomads – moving from occupation to occupation looking for that perfect position.
I contest that your perfect Job will be found when you passionately seek the Lord. It is as Paul writes in Acts, “in Him we live and move and have our being...”
God created you, God created your purpose, and God created the perfect position for your purpose.
I challenge you to find your peace by passionately pursuing Him. God has the answer you are seeking.
“Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don't try to figure out everything on your own Listen for God's voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he's the one who will keep you on track.” Proverbs 3:5-6 (MSG)
Maintain His purpose ahead of your personal plans!
Your answer will be in a supernatural peace that will provide a certain confidence about your decision.
When you get your answer, go after it with pit bull tenacity daring anyone or anything to stop you from achieving success!
