Each one of you reading this blog are in for an awakening about your purpose here on earth. Yes, God has given some a great husband or wife. Some have wonderful, excelling, great one-of-a-kind kids–I believe I have two of them myself. Maybe you’ve been blessed to have a job that you can’t wait to get to everyday, while others are wishing they had completed college and secured a job where they would have been financially set now that they’re in their wisdom years. Many are yet waiting on Powerball to pick their numbers so the struggle of life in this world would be worth living.
There was a song back in my parents or grandparents day that stated, “life is just a bowl of cherries,” let me share with you a stanza from this song, because many people thought this was a song about just enjoying your life.
Life is just a bowl of cherries
Don’t take it serious; it’s too mysterious
You work, you save, you worry so
But you can’t take your dough when you go, go, go
In other words enjoy your life, for when you die, you can’t take any of your possessions with you, life will end. No purpose or insight just live, love and be happy. WOW Life isn’t a bowl of cherries.
God created you for more than achieving a bowl of cherries.
You my sister and brother are the answer to somebodies prayer or prayers. There are people that the Father has set aside especially for you to pour into their lives. They are hanging in the balance waiting on you to come and fulfill your purpose. Don’t get me wrong I enjoy life but I don’t let life enjoy me. I know that each one of you – and this includes me – were created to speak truth into the lives of others who are probably screaming in prayer; Lord send me someone to speak a word in my life and set me free. Or you could be the person the Lord is waiting on to save a nation from destruction. Moses was destine to deliver the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt, could that be you. Maybe you’re the one to go before kings and save a nation from destruction just like Esther.
What is your assignment?
Is it possible your assignment could be to witness to your boss that just found out her father is dying of cancer, sister is missing and her mother is depressed. You just may be the answer to somebody’s prayer. The children of Israel prayed for a deliverer and the Lord sent the most unlikely person, a murderer, raised with wealth. The Lord snatched him out of what he knew and sent him to the backside of the mountain to be transformed into a man who would let go of self to become an answer to prayer.
When you are the answer to prayer, you are willing to let go of your will to follow the will of God for your life. It probably won’t look like you perceive it to be but it will be exactly what our Father has predestined for you to be. Stop asking others what they think you have been called to do and start seeking God for what he’s planned for you. Romans 8:29 “for those whom he foreknowledge he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among the brothers”. The Son did what the Father told him to do and we are to be like Jesus. Jesus is the answer to the world’s prayer and since he is no longer walking this earth, you and I are the answer. Christ lives in us the hope of glory. Now is truly the time that life is not a bowl of cherries but life is an answer to somebody’s prayer. It’s time to make your testimony and stop hearing others. Don’t be satisfied with just showing up for church and receiving any word but get the Word of truth and share with others how good our Father is.
You are an answer!
