Discovering God’s Purpose For Your Life Part 2

Discovering God’s Purpose For Your Life Part 2

A recap from last Sunday’s message

Sermon Note – Shouts of Grace Center, 10th March 2019

Seven Principles of Purpose
1. God is a God of purpose.
2. God created everything with a purpose.
3. Not every purpose is known.
4. Where purpose is not known abuse is inevitable

Now to today’s message

5. To discover the purpose of something, never ask the creation, but ask the creator.

  • Jeremiah 33:3

6. We find purpose only in the mind of the Maker.

Our purpose is not found in the mind of our parents, they may be able to guide you, but your precise purpose is in the mind of your Maker.

Exodus 9:16

Not knowing purpose is a time and destiny waster because you are not focusing on what matters.

Your fulfillment and prosperity is in your purpose.

Finding out purpose doesn’t mean you just jump out and start, there must be a season of learning, you must be willing to learn from others that have done/are doing the things in line with your purpose.

If you are not the type that can stomach insults, you will not go far in life.

Elisha and Joshua had to learn from Elijah and Moses respectively. Humble yourself to learn.

Learn all you can learn

Your purpose is a personal discovery and you have to consciously walk that path. No one can discover it for you.

7. God’s purpose is the key to our fulfillment

Proverbs 19:21

It is what God has created you to do that will prevail.

Rev Dunamis Tunde Okunowo

How Do We Discover Purpose

1. What are your childhood dreams and desires.

2. What excites you or releases your passion.

Whatever your purpose requires is in you.

Having a sense of purpose makes you responsible.

It is only when you focus on purpose that you become responsible.

3. What do you do easily or naturally without stress.
Purpose is powerful

Be focused and give yourself self development.

It is only when you focus on purpose that you become responsible.

4. Where do you bring forth fruit or produce result the most.

5. Inward witness.

This is the leading of the Holy Spirit from within you.

6. What do your friends see in you.

Ask sincere friends – You know a friend is sincere when he/she can confront you.

7. Do you have stubborn thoughts and dreams?

8. What will you commit your whole life to if money is not an issue.

9. What is it that if you make up your mind to do, people will rush to help you accomplish it.

10. What are your hidden dreams and desires
