Winding Paths To Purpose

Day 1 of 3 • This day’s reading

Devotional

Today's verse is Proverbs 19:21. From this verse we learn that above all else, we must believe the value of seeking God and His mind on all things: Many plans are in a person’s heart. 

We can plan our schedules as much as we want, but only what God has declared is guaranteed to take place. God did not create us and redeem us to live a plotless, purposeless existence. That’s good news. 

I don’t know many people who are content to live and die and have on their tombstone, “Joe was here.” We were made for greater things than to occupy space on the planet. God has a calling for you and me, and the beauty of it is that our calling is tailor-made for us. 

In the same way that we have unique fingerprints and DNA, we all have a unique calling. Don’t settle for a paycheck, a house, and two cars. That may be the American dream, but God has a dream for you that is bigger. The LORD’s decree will prevail. Seek Him and His calling for your life. And be patient in the detours, u-turns and re-directs that He has for you on the winding paths to your purpose.
