What is clarity of purpose? How do we get clarity of purpose? Clarity of purpose tells us who we are, who’s we are, where are we going, how we are going to get there, and sometimes we will even understand why. Before we are to get clarity in our purpose we must first ask for it. God speaks to us each day, but we only can hear him with open ears.
Scripture says in Proverbs 3-5-7 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make straight your paths”
For us to hear God, we must acknowledge God. And for us to acknowledge God, we must trust God. Trusting God means knowing that despite what we see, all is well. What we see is temporary. God is always before us seeing things in the spirit where many times we only see things through fleshly eyes.
Many of us wear our glasses and without those glasses, we have a difficult time seeing the things that are right in front of us. By trusting God, He can change and prescribe a lens that when we look through that lens we see clearly !!
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding.”
We must realize that our understanding is so limited. Our understand is many times mixed with emotions, feelings, circumstances and life struggles. As we trust God to be with us, he will speak to us thereby solving our most crucial dilemmas. Trusting God gives us the assurance that all is well despite circumstances.
Once we have clarity of purpose we will see things unfold just as God planned and not as we planned it and what God plans is so much better than what we plan!
It is never wise to lean on our understanding. Who are we to understand anything! Do we try to understand the clouds in the air, why the wind blows, the seasons, where we’re going, and when we will get there– trust means that in ALL things we are guided by God.
“In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make straight your paths”
Clarity of purpose comes with an acknowledgement of God. We acknowledge God by seeking Him, obeying Him, and hearing Him! Understanding comes when we realize that we don’t have the power to straighten our lives! God is the only one to make straight our paths only as we turn our lives over to him.
Do we really desire clarity of purpose? Are we seeking purpose by reading God’s word while praying and meditating on it? Think about it and never cease to reflect on the fact that whatever’s going on in our life it is working out for our good!
