Your Purpose Is Greater Than Your Struggles

Devotional

Your Purpose Is Greater!

One day, as I slept, God showed me a vision, and in that vision, He was standing at the top of a mountain. There were a lot of things all around Him, and I heard Him say “this is your inheritance.” So I started to do as any person would, I went to go retrieve what was mine, but as I was walking, I seemed to be walking in place and I wasn’t getting any closer; then the vision then vanished. 

The same vision appeared to me the next day, and again God was standing at the top of a mountain. Once more, I went to go retrieve what was mine, and again I seemed to be walking in place. As I looked ahead there was a person in front of me who had his arm on my chest that was holding me back. As I looked at him closely, there were words tattooed all over his body. When I looked intently to read what it said, it read “This is your struggle." I was instantly saddened.

The same vision appeared again the next day, and again God was standing at the top of a mountain; I went to go retrieve what was mine, and again I had that person’s arm on my chest holding me back, which represented “My Struggles.” But this time God told me to look over my shoulder. As I looked over my shoulder, there were ten people behind me, with their hands on each other’s back, leading all the way up to my back. When I looked at them closely I noticed they had something tattooed on their bodies as well. Their bodies read “This is your purpose.” I asked God what this vision meant and He said, “Your purpose is greater than your struggles.”

What are you struggling with today? 

Is it a sickness? Is it other people’s opinions? Is it an identity crisis? Is it unbelief? Is it sin? Is it loneliness? Is it gambling? Is it rejection? Is it pornography? Is it insecurity? Is it debt? Is it prostitution? Is it drugs or alcohol? Is it anger? Is it Satan? 

No matter what your struggle may be, always remember that your purpose is greater than your struggle!
