Getting our bearings

Well the new year is upon us.  It seems like life is getting faster and faster.   I can remember when I was younger that Christmas and New Years couldn’t come fast enough.  It seemed to take forever to get here.  And now it seems to happen before you know it.  Life just keeps coming at us and it is very easy to get lost in the chaos.  So how do we keep ourselves on track?

God has gifted and designed everyone of us with a unique potential and purpose to fulfill.  One that is specifically crafted for us personally.  In fact it is so specialized that if we don’t fulfill our potential, absolutely no one else can.  So how do we know we are on the right track and fulfilling our purpose in life

First we need to know what God has said about us in the past.  For me that means going over the prophetic words that have been spoken over my life through the years.  Because it is very easy to forget about or overlook some of the things God said about me.  But at times we are all guilty of avoiding or ignoring completely what God requests of us.

And as we begin a new year we have the opportunity to refocus and realign ourselves so that we can completely fulfill our potential and walk in the fullness of what God has in store for each of us.  So we need to remember what God has said to us, but we also need to get current directions from Him as well.  God is speaking continually, and in our relationship with Him we can know what He wants for us now.  We also need to get current directions so that we can know we are on the right track, or so that we can get back to being on the right track.

It is important that we each fulfill what God has called and gifted each of us to do.  No one else can do your job.  And no job is insignificant.  God called each of us personally to walk with Him and to fulfill a great potential with Him.  It is up to us whether we actually do it or not.
