Lately, I have been on this purpose kick which honestly sounds crazy as I write it because LIFE IS PURPOSE. What do I mean by that? Well, we were designed for purpose on purpose. Nobody who is breathing life by now is here by happenstance. It may have been a surprise to your parents, but it was never a surprised to God! I’ve been reading In Pursuit of Purpose by Dr. Myles Monroe and it really has blessed me. It has awakened a fire on the inside of me to just be intentional about everything I do. I make no moves without God’s instructions but even more than that.
The revelation that my purpose pre-dates my existence changes things for me. I believe I’ve said this before but I’m going to keep saying it until you BELIEVE it Jer 1:5 is one of my favorite scriptures because he said BEFORE I formed you in your mother’s womb, I KNEW YOU!
So, let’s break it down BEFORE. According to dictionary.com BEFORE means in advance of; previous to the time when, or ahead. Now YOU WERE NOT EVEN FORMED IN YOUR MOTHER’S BELLY BUT GOD KNEW YOU!!!
Knew in Hebrew is yada which means to acquire knowledge, to be acquainted with. HOW SWAY?? HOW DOES HE KNOW? Because He is God. So when He created you He literally customed designed you to fit what He already knew in His heart you were going to be!!
Why does this hype me so much? BECAUSE YOU WERE DESIGNED FOR YOUR PURPOSE! It’s a custom fit. NO ONE CAN DO YOU LIKE YOU DO YOU!!! There are thousands of other bloggers and that’s cool but NOT A SINGLE ONE OF THEM ARE LIKE ME! THERE IS ONLY ONE ASHLEY LACHEA’!!!
This removes the stigma of fear because ONLY I CAN DO WHAT GOD HAS CALLED ME TO DO. It doesn’t mean that it won’t be uncomfortable. It does not mean that fear won’t try to rise up but BABY IT CANNOT WIN!! When you make a DECISION to believe and TRUST GOD NOT A SINGLE THING IS OFF LIMITS!
We can no longer sit still and watch life happen! NOT WHEN YOU’VE BEEN CALLED!! And because you are alive and breathing AND reading this blog right now, I KNOW you have been called.
SO PICK UP THE PHONE BOO! People are waiting on you! God is being patient with you! PURSUE HIM AND HIS PURPOSE FOR YOUR LIFE! It’s where fulfillment lies. I walk differently now that I am pursuing the things of God. My attitude is different! My mindset is shifting, and I NEVER want to go back because I know with GOD I am VICTORIOUS and there are no LIMITS to the things that He can do.
I pray that you GO AFTER ALL THAT GOD HAS FOR YOU! As my friend said to me today LEAVE NOTHING ON THE TABLE!
