A child of purpose!
(Rom 8:28) And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
The Bible speaks of a place where men make many plans. Proverbs 19:21 (AMP) says “Many plans are in a man’s mind, But it is the Lord’s purpose for him that will stand (be carried out).”The quicker you understand this, the quicker things will respond to you. Sometimes you can do everything right but you will not see the results you expect when you are out of purpose. There is always grace and favor that works extraordinarily in your life when you walk under purpose. At that place, the blessing comes; it can be in America, or in the deepest villages of Uganda. God can bless you from anywhere. Regardless of the ability you have, ask God where you are supposed to be. Where you are supposed to be will determine the blessing upon your life.
In Acts 16:9 we read of how Paul had a vision in the night; and there stood a man of Macedonia, and prayed him, saying, Come over into Macedonia, and help us. In this portion of scripture, Paul receives an instruction from men calling him to Macedonia to preach. In 2 Corinthians 8 Paul received an abundance of grace that when he preached in Macedonia, they gave him in abundance. The biggest persecutions from Paul were from the circumcised. The gentiles never beat Paul, because he had the grace for them.
When God sends you to a land, it yields its substance to you, but when God sends you out of the land it will not yield its substance to you. In the place of purpose, the trees, climate and atmosphere responds to you. All things start working together for good.
Every time Paul went to the Jews, they beat Him up except in Macedonia. There were Jews in Berea–Berea is a place in Macedonia–however these received the word. The Jews beat him many other places except in Berea.
Design and Purpose
In the Amplified version, Romans 8:28 is rendered as ‘We are assured and know that [God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose.’ The important word there is design and purpose. When God created you, he intended that your design only attracts certain things and repels others. The Bible says we which have believed have entered into His rest (Hebrews 4:3 KJV). Situations may come but they should find you in a position of rest. God has not called you to walk out of rest.
When you mature and understand God more, you realize that nothing can separate you from God’s love. The Bible says in Luke 22:31-32 And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.
It doesn’t matter how many mistakes you make, never leave the presence of God. The purpose o
