God will fulfill His purpose in us
God does not just call us into His purpose, He is actively working in our life to fulfill that purpose.
Psa 138:8 The LORD will fulfil his purpose for me; thy steadfast love, O LORD, endures for ever. Do not forsake the work of thy hands.
Phi 1:6 being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ,
1Th 5:24 Faithful is He who called you, who also will do it.
Keeping the focus
Hebrews 12:1 Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.
We need to get rid of all encumbrances (not only sins) that will hinder us from running the race well. Are we distracted by too many things in life? Do we make too many commitments that are not part of our purpose in life? Do we have too many hobbies and interests that sap away our time and prevent us from fulfilling our purpose?
God works even the “bad” things for good to fulfill His purposes
He is fulfilling His purposes in our life even when we think that things are not going our way. Even when things seem to be going wrong for us, God works those things for His good as well.
Rom 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
Every detail of our life is scheduled and allowed by Him in order that His purposes might be fulfilled.
Psa 139:16 Your eyes saw me when I was only a fetus. Every day of my life was recorded in your book before one of them had taken place.
