What if you were meant for something bigger? What if you really did have a purpose in this world that you haven’t found yet? What if you were walking all around your purpose and never knew it? Would this be something that you would ignore or would you drop it all and follow your calling?

I know you’ve read or heard the story of Peter and Andrew, just doing their daily work. They were fishermen and Jesus said “come follow me and I will make you fishers of men.” The bible says “AT ONCE” they left their nets and followed him. The same thing happened with James and John. The bible says they “IMMEDIATELY” left their father and followed Christ. How did they just lay it all down? What makes them different? Did God provide them with more faith than he gives us? Of course not! Did God promise them anything before they went with him? Nope! They saw Him as Jesus… that is all. They knew that by leaving, they were receiving so much more.

As a child of God, we can no longer be a slave to fear. God calls each and every one of us to drop our nets and follow Him. It doesn’t mean you have to leave the country (unless thats what he says specifically). There is PLENTY of purpose all around us!

Let’s look at faith. Faith causes you to move. Faith causes you to act. Faith is the presence of things we hope for—not the things we can see plainly in front of us. When we except Jesus as our savior, His Spirit dwells WITHIN us. We have the SAME POWER AS CHRIST! Just like the song “Same Power”, by Jeremy Camp says, “The same power that rose Jesus from the grave. The Same power that commands the dead to wake, Lives in us, LIVES IN US.”

We can no longer let the enemy tell us that we CAN’T do it. We can no longer listen to the lies that the world feeds us, saying that we are only meant for this or that. We can no longer let our unwillingness to move forward, hold us back! The Lord doesn’t “need” us, but He sure does “WANT” us. He loves us SO much! He tells us that we are meant for PURPOSE, for FREEDOM, to MAKE A DIFFERENCE. He even gives exact instructions on how to find your purpose. He tells us to seek Him with all our hearts. To ask Him what His plan is for our lives. To knock on heavens door, and he will open it and lead us to answers. You may think that it’s not possible for you. But I am telling you, actually I’m shouting it, YOU ARE A CHILD OF THE MOST HIGH GOD and it’s totally possible! Mathew 19:26 says “With man this IS impossible, but with God ALL THINGS are possible.” You are meant for greatness. You are meant for purpose. You are meant for a life of abundance. How great would this world be, if we’d all just drop our nets and follow Him.
