The first component of the will of God is divine purpose. Let us look at what discovery of divine purpose will do for you:
1. DISCOVERY OF DIVINE PURPOSE TRANSFORMS YOU
In Matthew chapter 16, we see two sides of the coin of discovery of purpose. The first side is that the discovery of your purpose transforms you. When you discover your own purpose, it will transform you. When you discover the purpose of a person you are living with, it will transform your relationship with that person. Married couples should labour to discover the purpose of God for their spouses.
2. DISCOVERY OF DIVINE PURPOSE PRESERVES YOU
It will preserve you from sin. It will affect your choices and decisions in life. To know how discovery of divine purpose will preserve you from sin, you need to look at the life of Joseph; that young man discovered the purpose of God at an early age of seventeen and that understanding preserved him.
3. DISCOVERY OF DIVINE PURPOSE WILL AFFECT YOUR CHOICES
Your choices and decisions in life will determine what you’ll become or what you don’t become eventually. Before you make a choice, you are the master of whatever you want to choose but as soon as you make the choice, your choice will become your master and control you. Therefore, you need to be careful as you make your choices in life.
PRAYER: Lord, lead me into the details of the purpose you have for my life. As you showed Joseph, show me Lord in Jesus’ name.
