In His Presence (Dr. Tony Evans)


The Only Worthwhile Purpose

In His Presence: The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy;

I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly

(John 10:10).

Have you been duped when it comes to purpose?

The only purpose worth living for is God’s purpose.

Paul said: “I press on toward the goal for the prize of

the upward call of God in Christ Jesus”

(Philippians 3:14).

If you live with this goal in mind, God will change the way you live.

You will stop just being alive and you will start to really live.You will live

the abundant life through God’s grace because you aren’t just living for yourself

anymore.

You are not here for you, but for God.

You will have stability. You can get off the roller coaster of emotions that comes

 when you live according to your circumstances. Even when things are bad,

 you are good because God is good.

When Jesus was asleep on the boat in the middle of the storm, His disciples asked,

“How can He sleep at a time like this?” Jesus could sleep peacefully because

He knew where He was going-He was going to the other side.

One of the great blessings of living in purpose is that you can rest.

You can rest because you know ALL things

will be used for God’s purpose,and you can rest

because you know you are going toward God.

You will be provided for. God always supplies that which He has ordained.

If you are outside of His purpose, you have to take care of yourself.

But if you are walking in His purpose, He will meet all your needs.

***One Minute Please

 Following God’s purpose may not change your place in life,

but it will change the way you live your life.
