She Leads With Purpose: Pt 2
For we are God's handiwork,
created in Christ Jesus to do good works,
which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Ephesians 2:10 NLT
God prepared in advance for you to do good works. He created you with your future purpose in mind; your purpose is to do “good works” or better yet God works.
It is sometimes hard to see the purpose inside of us because we look at our lives through the lens of our past and present mistakes and experiences; we look at ourselves and see our age, stage of life or limitations and think, “how on earth do I tap into my purpose” as if any of that matters to God.
We are the ones who label ourselves with the things that limit us, we are the ones who take God’s words and count them as void in our lives, we are the ones allowing the enemy to take our doubts and insecurities and use them to stop us from experiencing all God has planned to do through us.
“The enemy is out to diminish any impact you will have when you step into your purpose. He wants to stop you in your tracks. And if you are not certain of what God say’s about you and what God is trying to say to you, then you can be stopped. But if you are rock solid on who God made you to be and why He made you, you are an unstoppable force for God.” – Journey to Purpose.
I believe we can change our world for Jesus, but it’s going to take a community of women who know that we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to step into the purpose God prepared in advance for us to do. It’s going to take a community of women Living With Purpose.
