Understanding your divine direction and purpose in life

Have you ever asked – Where does God want me to be? What location and for what divine purpose?

There’s a divine allocation and grace that awaits you at God’s divine location for your life. Hence, it is important we follow God’s will and direction, so he’ll lead us to the right geographical location where we will excel.

Many times, we lean on our own understanding, believing our set plans and goals should work well, concluding things based on just the present suitation. But what does the future hold? Do you know? Nah! Only God knows.

In the scripture, Abraham obeyed God’s call to go to another place that God promised to give him.
Abraham trusted God to do what he had promised. God has created a specific location for you to go and prosper, he has made this geographical location yours. And has sent a helper to await you there. It’s now left for us to listen, and hear from God, let him choose and then we follow.

The is a place where God has commanded things to work in your favour!
Certain things might not manifest, until you get to that location. The divine allocation awaits you at the divine geographical location which God has designed to favour you.

So, pray, ask God, Where do I go? What country do I school? Which of these schools do I Pick? Which accommodation do I live in?
Life becomes much more easier when we hear from him before making a move.

God promises that if we will obey Him, blessings will follow:

Isaiah 1:19
“If you consent and obey,
You will eat the best of the land;

John 14: 21, “Those who really love Me are the ones who not only know My commandments but also obey them. My Father will love such people, and I will love them. I will make Myself known to them.”

Your Divine purpose

God has given us very specific gifts and strengths. But if you’re in the wrong location, these gifts might not be useful. The right location also connects you with people who want to help you find your purpose and what you’re passionate about; this can be anything. Business, art, economics. Anything!

Trying to discover your life purpose and finding direction can be an overwhelming thing. It might seem like a confusing topic of discussion. You want to do things right, but you’re not sure how. So you’re left confused and helpless.

You can trust God to lead you where he wants you to go. But you’ve got to be patient, and be ready to let him lead!

As Psalm 23:2-3 says, “He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.”

Just remember, You may feel confused, but God isn’t! And he knows the beginning and the end. Only him can do all things and help you.
