Life on Purpose: Inquiring of God

“As for me, I would seek God and inquire of Him..." - Job 5:8 (AMP)

Job was a man who's life was turned completely upside down at the hand of the enemy. In this scriptural passage Eliphaz is imploring Job to seek God for answers to his predicament. Though we can argue the soundness of his friends' advice, the one thing that Eliphaz got right in his monologue was encouraging Job to inquire of God. After all, it is not a sin to inquire of Him. As my former Bishop would say, “its ok to ask, but don’t demand an answer.” We can’t be afraid to inquire of God on our life’s purpose.

Jesus teaches us to pursue & inquire of God in Matthew 7:7. “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” Christ gives us an open invitation to seek God, even for our life’s purpose. We must be adamant about hearing from God. The fervent and effectual prayers of the righteous avail. Fervent- meaning to persist. It is not that God can’t hear you the first time. In fact, we know that our prayers are answered the moment that they are prayed. However, God rewards those who diligently seek Him. I encourage you to seek God for you purpose and not just for things.

Your life is only done when your purpose is fulfilled. Jesus’ purpose was to die for our sins and restore us back to the Father. HIs final words were, “it is finished.” His mission and His purpose was complete. Everything that He did up until HIs appointed time on the cross was centered around this one thing— to die for our sins. Wouldn’t it be amazing to know that you’ve lived a life centered around one God given purpose? First, you have to know what that purpose is in order to get in it.

I challenge you to position yourself to hear from God and to fervently inquire of Him concerning your purpose.
