People of the past were given a period of time to live and fulfill their purpose on the Earth. Many of them did great things and we can admire and be grateful for them, but their season is over.
We are now living in our era. This time is a special moment that God picked—specifically for us to walk the Earth and fulfill our calling.
The question is: What are you going to do with your time?
Some people are walking around feeling like they have no purpose or destiny, when we’ve been chosen for such a time as this!
Look at the nations and watch—and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told. Habakkuk 1:5 NIV
God is doing something new and exciting in our moment of history, and you are called to be a part of it! He wants to share with you where you fit into all of this and bring clarity to your divine assignment and calling.
One crucial point to remember is that we don’t have to look around wondering where our purpose is.
Jesus made it clear:
Nor will they say, ‘See here!’ or ‘See there!’ For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you. Luke 17:21 NKJV
Right now, there is anointing, power, strategy and authority inside of you! What you need, the purpose you’ve been looking for, is already within you.
God has given us everything we need to succeed and fulfill our purpose in this life, in this time. The same power that raised Jesus Christ from the dead resides in us!
And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you. Romans 8:11 NIV
God is fanning the flame, the gifts that have been a part of you since the moment you were born and bringing those things to life.
See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. Isaiah 43:19 NIV
This is your time. Now, get ready to walk in the fullness of the new!
