Created With a Purpose

God Created You With A Plan & Purpose

“You were put on this earth by God to achieve your greatest purpose and to live the abundant life. Only in Christ can you be satisfied.” – Luis Joseph Castle

Many of us came to Christ from a life of sin, addiction, and generally worthless behavior – some of it is too embarrassing to even mention here. I can relate, since that describes my former life as well. When we look back we seemed to have been wandering in a hopeless wasteland with no one to guide us, or lead us out.

However, after the Spirit of Christ entered our hearts and lives we learned to pray and trust in the LORD; we now ask Him to guide us in everything we do. Prayer gives us hope, purpose, and encouragement. It gives us a new positive direction in life. As we pray, the Spirit of God flows through our inner being and empowers us to follow a new direction.

We discover that prayer plays a central part in our spiritual growth, so we set aside a particular time each day to pray, establishing an important pattern. In this quiet time, we talk to God – either silently or aloud. We share our thoughts and concerns, our feelings, and our day with Him. Because He is our heavenly Father who loves us, we feel comfortable to talk to Him about anything.

Everyday we ask, “Lord, what would you have me do today?” and “Please give me the power to live this new life and carry out Your perfect will.” By simply doing that, we find the direction we always lacked before, and the supernatural strength and wisdom to fulfill God’s purposes for us in Christ. Prayer is the key to the “abundant and satisfying life” Jesus freely offers in John 10:10.

The very meaning of our existence can only be discovered through a personal relationship with God in prayer. Without God, we suffer in ignorance of our own value and significance. Without God, we fall prey to the devil’s evil illusion that our lives don’t matter, and we have no purpose or impact on the world around us.

Learning to pray for purpose becomes logical. We set aside some quiet time each day to talk with our loving Father and Lord Jesus Christ, asking for His direction and the ability to act upon it.

May Christ give you a fresh vision for your purpose in your life today.


Prayer

Heavenly Father, I pray that you would remind me that you have an abundant and satisfying life for me. I ask that you give me a fresh vision for your purpose for my life. I ask that you open my eyes, my ears, my heart, and my mind to Your personal plans for me that I can live out my purpose and destiny. Remove anything from my life that hinders me from discerning Your vision. I pray that you would draw me closer to You. Please reveal to me what I need to do to avoid running wild and aimless, but rather to remain stable and focused on Your perfect will for me. In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen.


Scripture Reading

“The thief [the devil] comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I [Jesus Christ] came that you may have life and have it abundantly.” – John 10:10

“For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” – Jeremiah 29:11

“For in Him [Jesus Christ] all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.” – Colossians 1:16

“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” – Ephesians 2:10

Fill My Cup Lord

Like the woman at the well
I was seeking
For things that could not satisfy
And then I heard my Savior speaking
“Draw from My well that never shall run dry”

Fill my cup, Lord
I lift it up, Lord
Come and quench this thirsting of my soul
Bread of Heaven, feed me ’til I want no more
Fill my cup, fill it up and make me whole

Right with God Through Christ

Heavenly Father, according to your Word I have been made the righteousness of God through Christ Jesus. Thank You for your Son Jesus who was absolutely sinlessness (none could convict Him of sin) and was made an offering to take away my sins. So that the righteousness that You required, was imputed unto me by my faith.

Not only have I escaped the punishment I deserved, but I have been made partaker of Your divine nature that producing good fruit in my life: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. For against such a life, there is no more condemnation. Amen.


Scripture Reading

“For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.” – 2 Corinthians 5:21

“But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.” – Galatians 5:22-23

“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, And because you belong to Him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death.” – Romans 8:1-2

Now is the Time

COME, NOW IS THE TIME TO WORSHIP

“Come Now Is The Time’ is a significant song for me; it came at one of my lowest ebbs in 1997 shortly after the collapse of the Father’s House musical and our subsequent move to the UK. As a result, when I hear this song, I always hear the sound of a new beginning. The lyric video features the powerful vocals of Kathryn Scott; the handwriting is my own. Special thanks to Ashley Blewett for taking the film footage on the streets of London, England where I wrote the song and to my son-in-law Luke Vandevert (@The Arctic ) for putting the video together. Here’s to new beginnings for all of us!” – Brian Doerksen

Follow the Good Shepherd

My Lord Jesus, I thank you that You are the Good Shepherd of my soul, and I am the sheep of Your pasture. When I hear Your voice, I come to You because You call me personally by my name. You lead me out wherever You shepherd me in this world. You walk ahead of me and I follow You because I recognize ONLY Your voice.

Because the churches today are permeated with imposters, I will NOT follow a stranger (a false apostle, prophet, or pastor), but will run from him, for I don’t recognize his voice as a true servant of God.

Thank you for giving me supernatural wisdom, a discerning mind, and an obedient heart. Help me to always walk with You along the true path that leads to eternal life. I pray in Your name. Amen


Scripture Reading

“I tell you the truth, anyone who sneaks over the wall of a sheepfold, rather than going through the gate, must surely be a thief and a robber! But the one who enters through the gate is the shepherd of the sheep. The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep recognize his voice and come to him. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. After he has gathered his own flock, he walks ahead of them, and they follow him because they know his voice. They won’t follow a stranger; they will run from him because they don’t know his voice.” – John 10:1-5

A Call to Holiness

Heavenly Father, according to your Word, today I prepare my mind for action by being sober-minded. I set my hope fully on Jesus Christ and look forward to His soon revealing. Help me to be an obedient child and not go back to conforming to the evil desires and ignorance I lived in before I received Christ. As You are holy in all that You do, help me to do likewise. In the name of Jesus I pray, amen.

-Luis Joseph Castle

Scripture Reading:

“Therefore prepare your minds for action. Be sober-minded. Set your hope fully on the grace to be given you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. As obedient children, do not conform to the passions of your former ignorance. But just as He who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do, for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.” – 1 Peter 1:13-16

World Upside Down

The early Christians had no building, no money, and no political influence. And yet they turned the world upside down with the power of God supporting their preaching, teaching and ministry.

Walk in the shoes of the disciples, as bestselling author Charles Martin brings their stories to life with his storyteller’s perspective.

In the first century, believer didn’t just mean someone who heard and agreed with Jesus; it meant someone who acted on that belief. And when the outside world saw the dynamic faith of these new believers, they declared “they turned the world upside down” (Acts 17:6).

That’s the kind of believer Christ wants us to be. The kind who understands that the truth of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection is so powerful, it reshaped history. The kind of believer who lives with that same world-changing faith today.
