All manufacturers want the consumers to be satisfied with their product. The instruction books and labels that come with their product are their way of telling you what they had in mind when they created the product so you can compare that to your expectations when you bought it. If the purpose of the manufacturer and the expectations of the purchaser don't match, the product can't possibly satisfy both the consumer's desires and the manufacturer's objectives. Remember this: purpose dictates performance, which influences satisfaction. Thus, purpose is the key to fulfillment.
Remember, your purpose is the key to life. It tells you what you are supposed to do and why. It reveals the reason behind life's experiences and demands and supplies a vision for the future. It also provides a perspective that gives life significance and meaning. Apart from purpose, life seems fatalistic and haphazard and the events of life become more important than the reasons behind them.
Keep this in mind: You will never experience true fulfillment and peace until you are executing the purpose for which you were born to do.
Obedience is vital in getting your purpose met. Obedience to what? Obedience to the Word of God. The written Word. It is not enough to just read it, but to act upon what you have read. Remember what the Constitution says in Romans 12:1-2 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. 2) And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
It is only through surrendering your will to Him, that you will reach the mind of God. In submitting to His will, you discover your purpose for being on this planet called earth. The reason why the Lord God and King wants us to know His plan and purpose for our life, is because He knows that apart from Him we can't know hope, peace and joy. In all things, purpose is the key to fulfillment because it establishes the foundation on which all life must be built.
We who are Kingdom Citizens should have the mind of the King.
Constitution: Philippians 2:5 Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus.
Focus: Remember, all of our godly actions begin with the renewing of your mind. Right thinking produces right action, and the opposite is true as well. Our actions is the fruit of our deepest thoughts. Let us focus on prayer, fasting, reading and studying the Constitution (The Word).
