Step Out and Try It


Working with God to find your life purpose means working as a team. When you take a step, God takes a step.

  • Be willing to try some things that interest you. You will know very quickly if you’ve found the right thing for you. Doors will either open or slam shut. Either way, you’ll know where you stand.
  • Be Patient. Wanting to know everything right this second is pretty common these days. Learning to trust that God will show you when He’s ready—now that takes patience. God isn’t going to show you every piece of the puzzle all at once. If he did, you’d get that “deer in the headlights” look, because you’d be so overwhelmed by it all. Not to mention you’d be overly tempted to come up with a back-up plan “just in case” things didn’t work out.
  • Don’t waste your time on things you know aren’t from God. “Get rich quick” schemes never work. Finding a Christian husband or wife won’t happen if you’re focused on activities and events that don’t involve Christians. And participating in things you know are wrong—well, you’re simply prolonging your answers.
  • Don’t let the people around you talk you into things. Just because it all sounds like a good idea from the world’s view doesn’t mean it’s God’s plan for you. Following God’s leading sometimes means you have to say no to many well-meaning family members or friends. It comes down to the decision to follow, no matter where it leads.
  • Lastly, don’t ever give up. You may not know your specific purpose today or tomorrow, but as long as you’re really great at being a Christian, and your heart is open, you will find God and he will find you.
