(Acts 9:1-9) (Jeremiah 29:11).
Sometimes older buildings that are no longer viable find new life and purpose because someone sees potential in them. If that can happen with old buildings, why not people?
Think about these men in the Bible whose lives took unexpected turns. There was Jacob, who wrestled with the angel of the Lord (Gen 32); Moses, who talked to a burning bush (Ex 3); Paul, who was temporarily blinded (Acts 9). Their stories are different, but all had a change of purpose when their encounter with God sent them down a new path.
We too may experience times that change the course of our lives. But God reminds us of this: I loved you before you loved me. I want to give you hope for the future. Give all your worries to me because I care about you (1John 4:19; Jer 29:11; 1Peter 5:7; John 10:10).
As you cling to God’s promises, ask Him to reveal new direction and purpose for your life as you serve Him in your church. Then reflect on this SLM:-
“Keep your eyes on the Lord and you won’t lose sight of life’s purpose.”
