There is no greater personal example to living a life filled with purpose than Jesus Christ. He walked the Earth as 100% man and 100% God. As He was being crucified, Jesus understood He would complete this step in His purpose as a man anointed by God. In the Garden of Gethsemane, we are granted access to into a prayer between Jesus and His Heavenly Father. He cries, ” Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.” As He finished His prayer, an angel appeared from Heaven to strengthen Him.
There will be assignments in your purpose that will not be easy and at times difficult. It is impossible to accomplish all God has called you to do in your own strength. Prayer is the key to living a selfless life and totally dependent on the Lord. As you walk out your purpose, there will arise many doubts and questions, go to the Lord in prayer about everything. It is in the Presence of God you will find the strength you need to carry out what He has called you to do.
Connect to God
In your purpose, you will face difficult times. As you become aware of God’s Presence, He will strengthen you to complete your assignment. Follow Christ’s example. Cultivate a “Life is Not About Me” Attitude.
