Purpose Path

June 22, 2010

Before He shaped you in the womb, He knew all about you.  Before you saw the light of day, He had holy plans for you.

Everyone has a purpose, whether we fulfill that purpose is up to us.  In order to accomplish this purpose, God has placed several gifts in us.  These gifts may consist of being organized, being able to communicate well, singer, writer,counselor, and the list can go on.  But that does not make one gift more important than the other, it just gives us an opportunity to encourage each other with them.  Paul said it best, I long  to see you so that I may impart to you  some spiritual gift to  make you strong–that is, that you may be mutually  encouraged by each other’s faith. Regrettably, we often spend numerous amounts of time doing irrelevant things, so we cannot concentrate on being great at one thing.  Instead, we settle at being  good or mediocre at a lot of things.   This is the world’s view for great social status but this was not God’s intentions.  We are told, do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. So why do we spend our time pleasing the world by trying to discover where we fit in, when were are not called to fit it.  Hey it’s okay to be different, stand out!

By looking at our purpose through a microscope, we will find that one purpose of being a wife is to be a support for the husband.  God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” This means we are called to support our husbands with their dreams.  My husband is very talented, he is an excellent communicator (Click Here to check out his blog), he raps, he writes songs, and he is very artistic. So when Charles and I got married, I deliberately wrote in my vows that I would support him and his desires, so that he would know, I have his back.  Now don’t get it twisted, there are boundaries.  But these boundaries should be determined by the spirit of discernment not by our own flesh.  That is why it is important for both the husband and wife to have personal prayer lives.  So that if one thing is revealed to one spouse it is also revealed to the other for God does not stir us up into confusion; He brings us into harmony.

Wives, you cannot force your husband to be what you want them to be.  God had it all planned before you all even met.  Remember, that it is your honor to play a role in what God has predestined for your husband.  This can consist of, your prayers for him or even participating in the activity.  This will allow you the chance to become closer. It also feels good  knowing that someone is praying for you, especially when you know it’s your spouse that’s doing the praying.  Pray that the Lord reveals to him what his purpose is and when he discovers it,  have doors of opportunity to open.
