Our God-Given Purpose

by J. M. Farro

“The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me.”  Psalm 138:8 NIV

I like to declare this Bible verse every day.  Because I’ve committed my life to God, this Scripture reassures me that His purpose for my life will prevail.  Many people spend years setting goals and making plans, only to discover that what they thought they wanted wasn’t what they wanted at all.  Nowadays, a lot of people think that getting more and more education is the answer to their  search for fulfillment.  Often they realize too late that all the education in the world can’t guarantee they’ll be truly satisfied in the end.  It never occurred to them to ask God what HIS plans for them were.  They weren’t aware of the fact that He created them with a specific purpose in mind, and that if they aligned their plans with His, they would experience a peace and contentment that can be attained no other way.

If you will wholeheartedly commit your life to the Lord and cooperate with His plans for you, He will move mountains to ensure that His purpose for your life is fulfilled.  You may be an artist, and people have told you there is already too much competition in the art world.  The odds are stacked against you, so don’t waste your time, they may say.  Perhaps you’re a musician, and everyone says you’d better pick another profession because there are already too many people in the music business.  Maybe God has given you a vision to go into some form of ministry, but you’re being told that you’ll starve.  Or you’re feeling overwhelmed because it seems that God is leading you into the medical profession, but all you can think about are the many years and costs of education ahead of you.  Listen carefully.  If it’s your sincere desire to fulfill your God-given purpose in life, and you believe that God is calling you into the ministry, the music business or anywhere else–rest assured that He will make a way where there seems to be none.  You will find satisfaction and joy in your labor.  And no power on earth or in hell itself will be able to keep God’s blessings from you!

Lord, I offer you all that I am and all that I have, and I ask that You fulfill Your purpose for me.  Show me what my God-given gifts are, and help me to use them for Your glory.  Bless all the work of my hands, and give me favor in the sight of God and man.  Give me a right heart so that my motives will always be pleasing to You.  Thank You for Your promise which says that I will eat the fruit of my labor, and blessings and prosperity will be mine!  (Psalm 128:2 NIV)

EVEN NOW

by J. M. Farro

“But I know that even now God will give you whatever you ask.” John 11:22 NIV

These words were spoken to Jesus by Martha, the sister of Lazarus. Her brother had already been dead four days by the time Jesus arrived. Yet here she confesses her faith in the Savior to do even the impossible. Moments later, Martha witnesses a miracle as her brother is raised to life by the Master.

A few years ago, God began bringing me up to a new level of faith. He taught me how to pray what I now refer to as my “even now” prayers. I would be facing an impossible situation, and it would seem like all the doors before me had been closed. My first impression would be to think, “I guess it just wasn’t God’s will.” Then I would sense another impression coming up in my spirit telling me to continue praying in faith. I might pray something like this: “Lord, I admit this looks like a hopeless situation, but I know that even now, You can make a way where there seems to be none. I ask that You do that, Lord.” I have seen so many seemingly closed doors opened by praying like this, that my prayer life has been radically changed forever. And I have used this principle in praying about small matters, as well as larger ones.

Jesus said, “The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.” (Luke 18:27 NKJV) I think it’s sad that our society has gotten so sophisticated and cynical that we’ve forgotten how to pray for the impossible. In Jeremiah 32:27 (NIV), the Lord says, “I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for Me?” This statement should not only encourage us, but it should convict us as well. Psalm 77:19 (TLB) says, “Your road led by a pathway through the sea–a pathway no one knew was there!” The Israelites never could have imagined that God would make a way for them through the Red Sea. Likewise, when we pray for the impossible, God will often make a way for us that will exceed our expectations.

Psalm 77:14 (TLB) says, “You are the God of miracles and wonders! You still demonstrate your awesome power.” When we ask God for the impossible, we invite Him to work wonders in our lives–something He delights in doing. Have you given up on a dream or vision that God has planted in your heart, because at this point, it looks like it can never come to pass? What “impossible” situations do you have in your life right now that perhaps you’ve given up on too soon? It could be that the Lord is just waiting for you to come to Him in faith today, saying, “Lord, I know that even now…”

Lord, I ask that You increase my faith and expand my vision so that I can trust You to do the impossible in my life. Help me to never put limits on You. When I’m tempted to give up on a situation too soon, remind me to ask You to make a way where there seems to be none. Thank You that You are the God of the impossible and nothing is too difficult for You!

Don’t Get Offended

by J. M. Farro

“A man’s wisdom gives him patience; it is to his glory to overlook an offense.” Proverbs 19:11 NIV

Are you easily offended? If you are, you have plenty of company these days. Our society has made becoming offended a national pastime. It’s almost as if we’ve made offense a virtue today. One example of this is the prevalence of “road rage.” One driver gets offended by another, and what began as a minor disagreement can escalate into a major conflict. But that’s not God’s way. Proverbs 19:11 (AMP) says: “Good sense makes a man restrain his anger, and it is his glory to overlook a transgression or an offense.” In other words, the honorable thing to do in these situations is to refuse to become offended. Yes, you may have been wronged. And your feelings may have been hurt. But if you are a believer, God Himself has promised to be your Vindicator, and He will deal with those who treat you unfairly. (Psalm 135:14) Your job is to handle situations like these His way, not the world’s way.

Psalm 119:165 (AMP) says, “Great peace have they who love Your law; nothing shall offend them or make them stumble.” If we are lovers and doers of God’s Word, we will walk in peace, and we will not be easily offended. When the apostle Paul is describing the God-kind of love that believers are to demonstrate, he says: “Love (God’s love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong].” (1 Corinthians 13:5 AMP) The next time you are tempted to take offense at something someone says to you, pray and ask the Lord, “Is there any truth to this, Lord? Do I need to make some changes here?” Then be honest with yourself and God, and let Him deal with you, if necessary.

Proverbs 18:19 (NLT) says, “An offended friend is harder to win back than a fortified city. Arguments separate friends like a gate locked with bars.” Is there someone in your life, like a family member, who gets offended easily, and whom you have to deal with on a regular basis? People like these can be difficult to get along with because when they take offense, they refuse to listen to reason or to yield to attempts to make amends. We may not always be able to avoid offending these people, but there are a couple of things we can do. We can pray for them, and we can refuse to become offended ourselves. The reason taking offense is displeasing to God is that it’s destructive to relationships. It divides people and causes conflict. It can break up families, friendships, and even churches. It’s one of Satan’s most valuable weapons against God’s kingdom, and as believers, we are to be aware of his tactics so that we won’t become his victims. (2 Corinthians 2:10-11)

Proverbs 17:9 (AMP) says, “He who covers and forgives an offense seeks love, but he who repeats or harps on a matter separates even close friends.” Every time we forgive an offense, we are preserving our relationships and slamming the door in the devil’s face. Most of all, we are pleasing and glorifying the One Who deserves our very best!

Lord, You know better than anyone how many opportunities to take offense I encounter each day. I ask that You give me the grace I need to resist becoming offended in these situations. Make me an example and an inspiration to others. Deal with me when I’m in the wrong, and I need to make some changes. When I suffer hurt, heal and comfort me the way that only You can. Thank You that by Your grace, I shall walk in peace!

The Importance of Joy

by J. M. Farro

“The joy of the Lord is your strength.” Nehemiah 8:10 NIV

In the Bible, the concept of joy is serious business. It’s not a superficial warm and fuzzy kind of feeling. It’s a fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22) and it can help the believer overcome all kinds of adversity. The verse above reveals that we gain strength from the joy that God gives us. And the Scriptures indicate that when we lose our joy, we can become victims of despair and even sickness. Proverbs 17:22 (TLB) says, “A cheerful heart does good like a medicine, but a broken spirit makes one sick.” Have you ever gotten sick after something happened to disappoint or depress you? I have. Next time you’re ill, ask yourself if you’ve been struggling with negative emotions.

Proverbs 15:15 (TLB) says, “When a man is gloomy, everything seems to go wrong; when he is cheerful, everything seems right!” Ever notice how your moods can affect your whole outlook on life? When you’re feeling down, it can seem like nothing’s going right, and everyone around you irritates you. But if you’re feeling particularly cheerful one day, almost nothing bothers you. When you’re filled with the joy of the Lord, you feel strong, capable, and ready for anything. That’s why a joy-filled believer is hard for the devil to handle. If the enemy can steal your joy, he can rob you of almost anything, including your health.

Romans 14:17 (NIV) says that the kingdom of God is “righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.” That should tell us just how valuable joy is to the believer. Jesus spoke about joy a lot. It was the Savior’s desire that His disciples would be filled with joy. (John 16:22, 17:13) In John 16:24 (NLT), Jesus says, “Ask, using My name, and you will receive, and you will have abundant joy.” And in First Thessalonians 5:16 (NIV), Paul writes, “Be joyful always.”

The Bible tells us that God wants us to serve Him with joy. Psalm 100:2 (NASB) says, “Serve the Lord with gladness.” And Deuteronomy 28:47-48 (NIV) says that because God’s people refused to serve Him “joyfully and gladly,” He would cause them to serve their enemies instead. The Lord deserves to have us serve Him with joy, and He’s given us His Holy Spirit as our source of joy.

Let me encourage you to memorize Psalm 86:4 (NIV), so that the next time you need a fresh dose of joy, you can pray like David did: “Bring joy to Your servant, for to You, O Lord, I lift up my soul.” Before you know it, you’ll be filled with the joy of the Lord, and nothing will be able to keep you down!

Lord, I ask that by Your Spirit, You would fill me with everlasting joy. Give me a happy heart and a cheerful mind so that I may walk in wholeness. (Proverbs 17:22 AMP) Whenever I’m tempted to despair, remind me of the importance of joy, and how You deserve a cheerful servant. Thank You that Your joy makes me strong!
