Having a place and purpose with God is very important. When we are living in the will of God we are blessed. Some people may think that the Bible is a limiting instrument but I believe it frees us and gives us life and purpose. We have something real that is spiritual. Our place is in heaven and we are living in the world preparing for this. We are not to feel sorry for ourselves but rather rejoice in the Lord.
In Nehemiah 4, the Jews were rebuilding the wall and they were being ridiculed and criticized. God gave them the place to build and rebuild but the people of the world did not understand.
1But it came to pass, that when Sanballat heard that we builded the wall, he was wroth, and took great indignation, and mocked the Jews.
2And he spake before his brethren and the army of Samaria, and said, What do these feeble Jews? will they fortify themselves? will they sacrifice? will they make an end in a day? will they revive the stones out of the heaps of the rubbish which are burned?
My friends, take your relationship with God serious. He has a purpose for us all. We have the human nature to go off into the world and seek riches and self gratitude. We need to ask God where our place and purpose is and what his will is for us. We need to ask where do we fit in.
I love how Noah knew his place and purpose with God. He was obedient and followed God’s will. We need to pray and ask God for his leadership. What is our task today having the faith necessary and the patience to wait upon the Lord for his word. When God speaks to our heart we shall know it.
If we are living in the world we are not living for God. We cannot serve the world and God at the same time. Are you satisfied with your life? God is waiting for us to seek him. He wants to greet us in heaven but we need to repent of our sins. Our soul needs to be cleansed and it can only be made clean through repentance. Seek the love of Jesus Christ because it is through him that we are saved. It is through the suffering of Jesus Christ that we are forgiven.
The Bible says that God is pleased with his son Jesus Christ and that only through him we can be saved. This means that we cannot live the law because we have the flesh to contend with. It is only through the blood of Jesus Christ that we can find salvation. Do you have the passion for Jesus Christ. He has passion for you. He loves us and wants us to seek him.
