For Such a Time as This...
We are here on PURPOSE, with PURPOSE! Esther 4:14 is one of my favorite Bible verses. Nothing takes God by surprise. Even though we may rack our brains trying to figure out why something happened or is happening in our lives, we have to trust that God's purpose will still be fulfilled if we trust Him enough to seek His direction.
We can WHAT IF ourselves into detours off of God's path for our lives. If I had done this differently, maybe if I took that job, if I had said something - next thing you know, you're following up an IF that was meant to be a WAIT for GOD. Whether it takes 10 minutes or 10 years, you'll still end up where He purposed you to be. Might as well save yourself some time and avoid the detours and scenic routes.
Ask God what His purpose is for your life, and when it's revealed, walk boldly into it! Have an amazing, purpose-filled life!
