171 How To Know God's Purpose for Your Life Your Hope-Filled Perspective with Dr. Michelle Bengtson podcast

    • Christianity

Episode Summary:
My guest, Ronne Rock, and I talk about knowing what God wants us to do with our life; how we know our purpose. We have a God-designed influence, impact, purpose, and story, and yet so often we don’t see it for what it is. We compare ourselves to others and think we are supposed to be like them. But the truth is, God created each of us with a unique set of gifts, talents and personalities.

Quotables from the episode:
One of the things I learned as a child was that I had to do it all myself and I couldn’t count on anyone else.  True leadership requires humility, a servant attitude, and valuing others.  When God said that He blessed man and woman, blessing means ‘happy am I.’ God delights in you!  Sometimes we may feel we are lacking in ability, but we all have time and can offer the gift of our presence.  When you’re seeking to know God’s purpose for your life, start by filling the space you’ve been given.  God takes everything in our lives and makes it purposeful.  When you’re seeking to know God’s purpose for your life, start by asking God, “How do you see me today?”  Scripture References:
Genesis 1:26-31 Now let Us conceive a new creation—humanity—made in Our image, fashioned according to Our likeness. And let Us grant them authority over all the earth—the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, the domesticated animals and the small creeping creatures on the earth. So God did just that. He created humanity in His image, created them male and female. Then God blessed them and gave them this directive: “Be fruitful and multiply. Populate the earth. I make you trustees of My estate, so care for My creation and rule over the fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, and every creature that roams across the earth.” God (to humanity): Look! I have given you every seed-bearing plant that grows on the earth and every fruit-bearing tree. They will be your food and nourishment. As for all the wild animals, the birds in the sky, and every small creeping creature—everything that breathes the breath of life—I have given them every green plant for food. And it happened just as God said. Then God surveyed everything He had made, savoring its beauty and appreciating its goodness. Evening gave way to morning. That was day six.  Ephesians 2:10 For we are the product of His hand, heaven’s poetry etched on lives, created in the Anointed, Jesus, to accomplish the good works God arranged long ago.
