If you want to know what the Lord downloaded to me this morning about your unique life purpose, read on......
I said to the Lord this morning, I haven’t written anything for a while and I’d like to write something about life purpose. This is the passion that the Lord has laid on my heart in this season, that we all have a unique life purpose.
The Lord led me to Matthew 5:14-16.
I believe this is the season for you to be shining your light. I’m talking to you, yes you, the one that is not yet living your life purpose, so this was a wonderful Scripture for the Lord to lead me to.
Matthew 5:13-16 [NKJV]
13 “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavour, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men.
14 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
You, dear one, are the salt of the earth. What does salt do?
It adds something that is missing and/or necessary. YOU can help people add or find the missing somethings in their life. YOU have something to add.
Salt – it balances sweetness and helps suppress other flavours such as bitterness. YOU can help to bring balance to someone’s life. Perhaps someone is drowning in bitterness and what you have could help them to manage it.
Salt – it contains an essential nutrient (sodium) which the body needs. YOU have an essential part to play in someone’s life and you are an integral part of the Kingdom body.
Salt – is a preservative. What if the gifts and talents that YOU have can help to prolong someone’s life in some way? What if someone is ready to give up, either spiritually, mentally or physically?
Salt – is a binder. YOU might be the key to helping to hold together someone’s life.
Salt – it’s important eh?! Still think you don’t matter or aren’t important?
God has a specific tribe of people for YOU to help. There are people out there right now that need the gifts and talents that YOU bring, in your own unique and authentic way. Keep up your intimacy with the Lord and don’t lose your flavour. YOUR flavour.
You have a flavour that will appeal to YOUR sphere of influence. Even if someone were to have similar gifts and talents to you, YOUR way of manifesting them will always be unique to you.
You have a unique flavour, just the right amount of salt to flavour the lives of the people that God gave you and will bring to you to influence. For those people and for the gifts and talents that you have, someone else will not have the right amount of salt – maybe they are too salty or not enough salt, maybe their flavour is off but YOURS is just the right amount.
What about light?
God gave you a light to shine. It’s time to stop hiding your light. God wants to put you on your hill of influence, to shine so that those that need Him through you, can see you and see Him. Verse 16 starts, “Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works “.
YOUR good works. You have a unique life purpose.
Ephesians 2:10 says,
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. [NKJV]
You were created for good works. Good works for you to manifest, live, walk in. Your good works are the manifestation of the gifts and talents that God gave you put to good use in accordance with His Will.
He has something for you to do, a purpose, a people to reach, help and support in the unique way that only you can.
And what is the purpose of your unique life purpose? What is the purpose of these good works?
That is told to us at the end of verse 16, “And glorify your Father in Heaven.”
Your unique life purpose given to you, will glorify your Heavenly Father. This is all for His Glory….and don’t you want to be a part of that?!
I have been blessed that the Lord has made it a passion for me to want to see you, as a Christ-centred woman, released into your unique life purpose and breaking off the limiting mindsets and incorrect beliefs that hinder you from moving forward or that have completely stop you in your tracks.
If you don’t know what your unique life purpose is yet or even what your gifts and talents are, I would love to support you. Maybe you do know but have no idea where to begin, I’d love to help you with that.
I specifically help Christian women who don't know their purpose but would like to run their own business, so if that's you...
