Today, we continue our devotions on “Pursuing God’s Purpose.” God has a purpose for you but you need to respond to his call and actively participate in what he wants to do in your life.

Today’s devotion describes how God led his people from the bondage of Egypt to the verge of the Promised Land. He then instructs them to move forward to take the land he promised to give them.

Scripture: Deuteronomy 1:6-8

“The Lord said to us at Horeb: ‘You have stayed long enough at this mountain. Break camp and advance ...’” (Deuteronomy 1:6, 7, NIV).

Devotional Focus

For a long time I wanted to pursue graduate studies and though had some ideas as what wanted to do I was still undecided. During that time, it seemed that God sent the person I needed to help me decide to join the staff at my school. She was completing the same programme at an institution at I thought about applying to. My new colleague gave me the information and insight I needed and the nudge to move forward.

I have since completed that programme and moved on to complete doctoral studies. But I always remember that person who I now consider to be my “divine contact”. My life has never been the same since I made the move. I have been personally enriched by the experiences during my studies and I have since been able to use the knowledge and skills I gained to the benefit of many people.

I can identify with the uncertainties of the Israelites but I am also learning that I need to trust God, take him at his Word, and forth into the things he calls me to do. Even more, I have learned a powerful lesson regarding the need to move forward at crucial points in my life as God leads.

Today’s Reflections

Think of a specific idea God has placed on your heart that you feel he wants to move into. You may have been reluctant because of fear and uncertainty or inadequacy. Ask God for the guidance and empowerment you need and step out confidently knowing God is with you.

Prayer

“Our Father, we thank you for your love, care and guidance in our lives. As you instruct us to move to the next level in your purpose for our lives, help us to trust you totally and move forward confidently. In Jesus’ Name we pray. Amen”
