Chasing after that all illusive “purpose” is a gut-wrenching process, especially if you are focused on the wrong thing. We complicate it. We want it to be big. We want it to be grand. We want to make a huge impact. While all that might not be bad, if that is our sole focus we once again are missing the point.
We’ve talked about the little things a few times throughout our 31 days and clarifying our purpose through the use of our strengths, but many times God just needs us to step out and help where needed. There is purpose in helping others by filling a need. Maybe that need is not your life-long passion, but in that moment doing what seems like the smallest insignificant thing by helping someone else, is huge.
Don’t waste your moments sitting around trying to “find” your purpose, instead live on purpose. Live to fill a need. Step up and help a single dad trying to figure out how to juggle his four kids. Step into the children’s ministry room at church and see if there is something you can do. Ask your boss if there is anything you can do for him. Provide a sandwich for someone on the street. Needs are all around you. Fill one.
God honors our actions. He wants us serving his people. Find a need and fill it, then watch how God will move and direct you. God can’t move an immovable person. Once we get moving then He can direct our movements.
According to Newton’s First Law:
An object at rest will remain at rest unless acted on by an unbalanced force. An object in motion continues in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.This law is often called
Once you step out and fill a need, God can then begin steering you to your place of purpose.
What need do you see today that needs to be filled? Maybe God is waiting on you to step in and fill it.
