Proverbs 19:21

There are many plans in a man’s heart,
Nevertheless the Lord’s counsel—that will stand.

Reflective Thinking

Myles Munroe taught about Purpose a lot. One of the verses that stuck with me is this one but he translated the word “counsel” here to “purpose”. That makes sense when you read the original Hebrew and usage of it. This is how he shared it, “Many are the plans in a man’s heart… but it’s the Lord’s purpose that will prevail.” That’s so deep! I miss that guy. If you don’t know who he is, watched any of his teachings, or read any of his books you’re missing out! In Pursuit of Purpose by Myles Munroe is one I recommend if you’re wanting to discover and live out your God created purpose.

You see, God is the creator and everything He creates He has a purpose for. You and I each have our own God-designed purpose. Knowing this, we need to know what our purpose is. Who determines the purpose of a thing? It’s the manufacturer, creator/inventor. If you want to know the purpose of anything… go to the manufacturer. That’s where today’s action idea comes in to play.

Action Idea

Today, take some time to have a good conversation with God about your purpose. He’s the source of everything and His timing is perfect. He provides you just the right information and just the right time. So, ask, seek, and knock until you know your purpose. You won’t regret it.
