Ok, I am back with my next installment of Purpose – My one word for 2010. This week,. I am reading Acts 11:23, “When he came out and had seen the grace of God, he was glad and encouraged them all that with purpose of heart they should continue with the Lord”. Purpose of heart! That statement makes me search my own actions and beliefs. Am I continuing with the Lord with purpose of heart? I don’t want it to just be words but actions that stem from a heart attitude. Is it real or just a surface act? Did I really commit to being obedient and fulfilling my purpose in my heart or just in my mind?
I never want to give word service but heart service! Lord, with purpose of heart I will continue with you! If it’s a heart attitude, when the going gets tough, it will show! And…the going will get tough because that’s just part of life. Satan does his job well and makes sure the going gets tough. He wants to sift us as wheat (Luke 22:31,32) intending to destroy us but I declare that “your faith will not fail and when you have returned, strengthen your brethren”. In that instance, Jesus had full confidence that Peter would come through stronger than ever and he would be instrumental in strengthening his brethren.
I believe that about you! I believe that if you are reading this, you have a heart purpose to fulfill all that God has planned for you. I, also, believe that you won’t stop until you fulfill it.
Not just purpose but purpose of heart!
Do you have it?
