God’s Purpose Made Personal – Go with Which Flow?
Who Said It…Skip Heitzig
After troubled years as a young musician involved in the drug culture, Skip received Christ while watching a Billy Graham TV crusade.
After studying about his new faith, he began a home Bible study in Albuquerque, New Mexico, that grew into the 12,000-strong Calvary of Albuquerque!
After 23 years there, Skip last year moved to Ocean Hills Church in San Juan Capistrano, California. Skip has visited world trouble spots with friend Franklin Graham.
What He Said…Go with Which Flow?
In the icy waters off the coast of Greenland are innumerable icebergs of varying size. Even casual observation reveals that the small ice floes move in one direction while the massive ones flow in another.
The reason is simple. Surface winds drive the little bergs while deep ocean currents move the larger ice masses along their routes.
Likewise, people carried by an awareness of God’s will for their lives are pulled by a deeper current than the surface winds of trends or societal pressures.
In what direction are you traveling? What’s the purpose of your life?
If you’re like most people, you long to know that your life counts for something, that you have a purpose for being on earth. Everyone whom God calls has a purpose. There’s a part of His program on earth that only you can fulfill.
One of life’s greatest pursuits is to discover what that purpose is and to live within its flow, even though you may feel as if you’re going against the cultural flow.
Adapted from Jesus Up Close (Tyndale, 2001)
Prayer for the Week: I want my life to count for you, Lord. Help me to discover and follow your best purpose for my life.
