Day 23 - YXist 28 Day Challenge 2014

In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths.
Proverbs 3:6

It's Day 23 of the challenge, and for many of you, you have find your "why.


Doesn't it feel good to know why you exist?

But as the great quote says, knowing is only half the battle.

So you can't just stop at knowing what you are here to do; you have to do it. 

And in order to do what God has called you to do, you have to have a plan.

Whatever your "why" is, whether it's to be a doctor, teacher or accountant, you have to have a plan to fulfill it.

Without one you will not make any real progress.

Without a plan you will waste a lot of time doing things you think will help you accomplish your purpose, you will waste your energy working hard at something that has nothing to do with the call on your life, and you may even waste money on classes or material that you didn't need.

Not having a plan is like not having a map and trying to drive from here to California.

You are going to get lost.

God is the GPS needed to get you to fulfill your purpose.

Proverbs 3:6 says, "In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths."

Remember, if God gave you a purpose, He will also give you a plan to fulfill that purpose.

The first thing you need to do is acknowledge Him.

Recognize that He knows more than you and that He knows exactly what you need to do to meet the calling He placed on your life.

Genesis 12:1 says, "The Lord had said to Abram, go from your country, your people, and your father's household to the land I will show you."

What is God doing?

He is leading Abram through every step of his calling.

He will do the same for you.

You don't have to waste time and energy trying to figure it out for yourself.

Take it step by step with God's leading, and you will find yourself walking in the calling of God for your life.

I remember when I found my "why."

I knew I was supposed to be a minister.

When I asked God what I was supposed to do next, all He said was, "Go to Bible school."

Then when I graduated, God had already told me to go to Word of Faith.

When I got here, I was promoted to youth minister and God continued to show me the steps I needed to take.

When I look back, I can see how far I have come, and it's only because I went step by step.

God led Abram step by step; and when you acknowledge God, He will do the same for you.

You will look back just a year from now and see how far God has brought you.

So get to the plan for your life‑‑get the plan for your life, let Him be your GPS, and you will fulfill the purpose on your life.
