DAILY MEDITATION

I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. II Timothy 4:7-8 Living On Purpose rewards us with the crown of God’s glory, revealing Him in a public and meaningful way that demands our being and space reflect the power, love, and faithfulness of God, which is God’s purpose and plan for our lives. Revealing God reveals the greatness of who He is as Victorious Lord and Lord of Life’s Abundance. You and I cannot go wrong when we are with God and representing Him in the wo

DAILY MEDITATION

For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; II corinthians 4:16-17 Living On Purpose leads us down a path in which we are drawn closer and closer to God and there we are transformed into His original intent, shedding those things that have come to our lives to separate us from God. The fullness of joy, benefit of Living On Purpose, is uncovered as we shed those things that have hindered and prevent us from living as God has ordained. The more we LIVE as God intended , especially through life’s challenges, God us

DAILY MEDITATION

Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:35-39 You and I are more than conquerors, we just don’t defeat the enemy we also enjoy the spoils of the victory through Jesus Christ, all power and authority is given to us to go and fulfill the purpose and plan of God. Living On Purpose gives us access to everything needed to accomplish and win the victory in our lives and enjoy the well-l

Then Paul answered, What mean ye to weep and to break mine heart? for I am ready not to be bound only, but also to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus. And when he would not be persuaded, we ceased, saying, The will of the Lord be done. Acts 21:13-14 Living On Purpose is a call to press forward in that which God has purposed and planned for our lives. God is not mocked, whatsoever we sow that shall we reap; the more you press toward His purpose and plan for your life, the more you will yield a harvest of the life and life more abundantly promised. By no means is Living On Purpose an easy task but keep pressing toward what you believe should be, the will of God, and you will be

DAILY MEDITATION

That no man should be moved by these afflictions: for yourselves know that we are appointed thereunto. I Thessalonians 3:3 Living On Purpose has its challenges and those challenges are not to hurt, harm, or destroy us but build us up and uncover hidden abilities within us in order to achieve that which God has purposed and planned. The afflictions of your life serve two purposes, first an attempt to separate you from God and thus His purpose, but also to reveal the power of God in your life and that which He has deposited within you. LIVE in and through the afflictions for they will bring about an explosion in you and your space, a rush of the mighty wind that gives you courage and abiliti

DAILY MEDITATION

But there is another urgency before me now. I feel compelled to go to Jerusalem. I’m completely in the dark about what will happen when I get there. I do know that it won’t be any picnic, for the Holy Spirit has let me know repeatedly and clearly that there are hard times and imprisonment ahead. But that matters little. What matters most to me is to finish what God started: the job the Master Jesus gave me of letting everyone I meet know all about this incredibly extravagant generosity of God. Acts 20:22-24 (The Message) When you are Living On Purpose there is a sense of urgency to move and flow in something that seems right. The way of your purpose may not make sense or even may even appea

DAILY MEDITATION

In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will: That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ. Ephesians 1:11-12 Living On Purpose establishes us as the legacy, the recipients of God’s love and power to accomplish and overcome anything that is before us. We enter life as God’s offspring with an advantage that allows us to face whatever is before us and to do so with the necessary resources, equipped to LIVE life and life more abundantly. God’s purpose and plan for our lives has been laid out not just our steps but also the intent of God’s creation of us an

DAILY MEDITATION

This is the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth: and this is the hand that is stretched out upon all the nations. For the Lord of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul it? and his hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back? Isaiah 14:26-27 Living On Purpose is an important part of what God is up to in the world and He chose you to play a vital part in HIs overall plan. You have been chosen to co-create with God His kingdom on earth and has specifically designed a plan for you to participate in the building of His kingdom. It is up to you to uncover, through your life and life’s challenges, our role in His overall purpose and plan. You have been intentionally create

DAILY MEDITATION

A man's heart deviseth his way: but the Lord directeth his steps. Proverbs 16:9 Living on Purpose focuses us on what it is that God created us for, His purpose and plan, the what should be for our lives. As we focus our thinking on what God has declared for our lives we transform our heart, the essence of who we are, feeding the passion and spirit of God that dwells within us confirming our actions to His will. The Bible says our heart is deceitfully wicked and in order to cleanse it, transforming our thoughts, we must grab hold to what it is that God has declared should be for our lives and feed it. As we realize God’s purpose and plans for our lives we take on the mind of Christ that tr

DAILY MEDITATION

The counsel of the Lord standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations. Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance. Psalm 33:11-12 Living On Purpose is a direct result of our seeking and following the direction of the Spirt of the Lord for and to our lives. The discernment process of all the noise we experience through the journey of life is hard and can only be overcome by and through our relationship with God that feeds the Spirit of Him inside of us and points us in the right direction. God as the author and finisher of our faith, what we believe should be, is the wisest and best counsel we can receive, howeve

DAILY MEDITATION

But he is in one mind, and who can turn him? and what his soul desireth, even that he doeth. Job 23:13 Living On Purpose focuses our attention as well as our actions toward the goal, the prize of the higher calling of God’s purpose and plan for our lives. The more we are determined in our thought life, the more we are determined in our actions and the transformation of our heart to that which should be as declared by God. Let everything in your life praise God, give honor to Him and His purpose and plan for your life. As you give God the glory, allow His plan to unfold in your life as a result the more sensitive you will be to opportunities and possibilities of reaching your goal, the acc

DAILY MEDITATION

Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace. Psalm 37:37 Living On Purpose demands that we strive to be wise in our decisions and actions. To be wise is to glean from the lived experiences of our lives and those around us that which is Spirit-led directing us to our promise of life and life more abundantly, God’s purpose and plan for our lives. In striving for the perfection of God’s will we will make mistakes but it is in those mistakes that we learn through constructive criticism how to better empower ourselves and make appropriate steps toward what should be for our lives. Perfection is not getting it wrong but instead learning from the experiences in

DAILY MEDITATION

Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end. There are many devices in a man's heart; nevertheless the counsel of the Lord, that shall stand. Proverbs 19:20-21 Living On Purpose requires an embrace of those things that helps one move forward in that which should be for your life as declared by God. The what should be for your life is God’s purpose and plan that leads to the vision of the promises of God being realized. To have vision, one must be open to God impressing upon your mind the ideas and steps to live the well-lived and joy filled life promised, life and life more abundantly. The impression of God upon your minds is a direct result of you em

DAILY MEDITATION

And the Lord turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before. Job 42:10 Living On Purpose even through the challenges of life that are frustrating and unexplainable yields the benefit of God’s faithfulness and the manifestation of His promise to you for life and life more abundantly. The hardship experienced by Job even when there was no logical or even “right” explanation of the difficulties he faced, his endurance proved God’s faithfulness, grace, and generosity that was beyond where he began, double for his trouble. I do not know exactly why God allows what He allows but I do know that if you will stay focused on what He

DAILY MEDITATION

And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or parents, or brethren, or wife, or children, for the kingdom of God's sake, Who shall not receive manifold more in this present time, and in the world to come life everlasting. Luke 18:29-30 Living On Purpose is an assurance that whatever you face, life and life’s challenges, are only temporary setbacks and will not hinder or prevent you from living in the fullness of life and life more abundantly promised. There very well may be difficulties on your journey of life but LIVE, despite and in spite of them, for they are only temporal, focus on the eternal promises of God for your life and LIVE step by step.

DAILY MEDITATION

And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: Revelation 2:26 The challenge for each of us through life and life challenges is to overcome them as a witness for God, a witness of His power and Word. Living On Purpose in God’s plan for our lives serves as a banner of God’s faithfulness to us by giving us access to His power and to participate with Him in the fulfillment of His Word as Co-creator. Stay focused on that which God has promised for it is His Word, covenant, bond to us and as we seek to LIVE in it we testify of God’s faithfulness. There is nothing that can prevent us or hold ground to God’s Word for and to us. It is God’s

DAILY MEDITATION

Ye are they which have continued with me in my temptations. And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me; That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel. Luke 22:28-30 Enduring through the pathway of your life, fulfilling God’s purpose and plan yields you the harvest of God’s promise of life and life more abundantly. Living On Purpose will cause life and life’s challenges to press you to yield to temptations that seek to separate you from God and thus His purpose. You and I must resist the urge to go our own way and do that which is convenient for us in order to reap the benefits of God’s harvest for our

DAILY MEDITATION

And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life. But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first. Matthew 19:28-30 Life has a way of seeking to conform you to what is and/or operate in a mindset in which you just go through life seeking to survive, however, the will of God is that we woul

DAILY MEDITATION

So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen. Matthew 20:16 Living On Purpose is an indicator that your mindset has shifted from what is to what should be. The mindset shift is essential to forging your way through life and its challenges to the promise of your life and life more abundantly. Life and its challenges may appear have you over a barrel and that the purpose and plan of God for your life is impossible and undoable for where you are right now but do not lose heart because of what it looks like right now is not what it will be. The devil’s best workshop is in your mind, believe, conceive and act and God will reveal himself as the author and

And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said, The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son, And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come. Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage. But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise: And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them. But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, an
