|Under What Are You Covered ! by martinmiller(m): 8:10am On Oct 18, 2017|
It all start with God.[i][/i]
The purpose of our life is far greater than our own personal fulfillment, peace of mind or even our own happiness. Far greater than our career, family or even our wildest dreams and ambitions, if we must know why we are placed on this planet, we must begin with God, for absolutely, everything above and below, visible and not. Everything got started in him and finds it purposes in him Colossi ans 1:16.
Through genealogy, the search for the purpose of life puzzled people for thousands of years. That’s because we typically begin at the wrong starting point, which is ourselves. We often ask self-centered question like: What do I want to be? What should I do with my life? What are my goals, ambitions, and future? But focusing on our selves will never reveal our life’s purpose John 1:1. The bible says it is God who directs the lives of it creatures, everyone life is in his power. I once got lost in the mountain. When I stopped to ask for direction to the new camp site, I was told “you can’t get there from here. You must start from the other side of the mountain, in the same way you cannot arrive at your life purpose by starting with the focus on our selves. You must begin with God, your creator. You exist only because of he’s wills that you exist. Many people try to use God for their own self actualization, but that is receding of nature and is doomed to failure. You were made for God not vice – versa.
I have read many books which suggest ways to discover life purposes. All of them could not but served or satisfied as self- help books because they approach the thesis from a self- centered view point, self- help books even Christian ones, usually offer the same, they offer you to consider, Aim high, clarify your values, Believe you can archive all your goals, involve others, never give up. Aim high! Of course, these recommendations often lead to great success. You can actually succeed in reaching your goal if you put your mind to it. But being successful and fulfilling your life purpose are not at all the same issue, by focusing on what matter most. It is about becoming what God created you to be, to border you not with my epistle, how then do you discover the purpose you are created for? You have only two (2) options (A) by speculation: four thousand of years, brilliant philosophers have discussed and speculated about the meaning of life, though philosophy is an important subject and has its own uses.
But when it comes to determining the purpose of life, even the wisest philosophers or astrologers are just guessing Amos 9:6 (B) by Revelation: the easiest way to discover the purpose of an invention is to ask the creator of it. We can turn to what God has revealed about life in his word, the same is true for discovering our life purpose. Ask God, God as not left us in the dark to wonder and guess. He has clearly revealed his five purposes for our lives through the bible. God is not just the starting point of our life: he is the source of it.
To discover your life purpose you must turn to God’s word, not the worlds wisdom 1john 2:15-16, we must build our life on eternal truth not pop – psychology, success motivation or inspirational stories. The bible says “it is in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for.
See you at the top.

|Re: Under What Are You Covered ! by martinmiller(m): 11:12pm On Oct 18, 2017|
Good question and yes i have, what do you need know?
|Re: Under What Are You Covered ! by martinmiller(m): 12:38pm On May 23|
|Re: Under What Are You Covered ! by Kobojunkie: 7:31pm On May 23|
Nice write up @OP. So, seriously, have has your journey been? Have you found your purpose then?
|Re: Under What Are You Covered ! by orisa37: 11:06pm On May 23|
BY THE BLOOD OF CHRIST.
|Re: Under What Are You Covered ! by martinmiller(m): 12:52am On May 24|
I was extremely glad I found my purpose in life, when you don't know or ignorant about what or who you are, you only wander about.
The key to understanding life is in the source of life, not in the life itself .
|Re: Under What Are You Covered ! by Kobojunkie: 12:57am On May 24|
Does this purpose have to do with "a calling"? If yes, what makes your purpose any different from the purpose of millions of so-called "men of God" the world is, for lack of a better word, burdened with, at this time?
|Re: Under What Are You Covered ! by martinmiller(m): 1:09am On May 24|
The Gift of the spirit are different, many are called but few are chosen. life purpose doesn't have to be a call at pastoring and then it can be at other field ordained by Jehova.
it's now left to us as individuals to find what we are call to do through our shape : spiritual gifts, heart, Ability, Personality and Experience. (see John 3:
|Re: Under What Are You Covered ! by Kobojunkie: 1:15am On May 24|
martinmiller:um... Sure the gift of the Spirit of God are different but it is the same Spirit of God that lives inside all of those who are filled by Him. There is no pastoral gift though.
martinmiller:Left to us as individuals to find what we are call to do through our shape? What has our individuality to do with anything? Jesus said that in order to be worthy of Him, we must die to self(individuality/ego, surrender our will to Him etc.)
What happened to being lead by the Spirit of God? What happened to living as Jesus did... Jesus never chose for Himself what He wanted to basing his choice on his shape or the sort. He said that the everything He did was what the Father wanted Him to do... even the words out of His mouth were words orchestrated by the Spirit of God living on the inside of Him.
What exactly is this purpose which you were able to Shape out for yourself?
|Re: Under What Are You Covered ! by martinmiller(m): 1:29am On May 24|
from the abundance of heart the mouth speaketh, finding your life purpose doesn't end in a day, it's a journey of spiritual discovery and development, which with the help of holy you can be lead with.
I know you are not Jesus Christ, you can only be lead by holy ghost at revelations of your true self through your shape, have you ask yourself ( who I'm I ) and genuinely with honesty answer that question ? look, Christianity is a lifestyle not a religion and is a walk (see John 4:24-27) .
|Re: Under What Are You Covered ! by Kobojunkie: 1:37am On May 24|
martinmiller:What? Can be lead with? In case you did not know this, the Almighty God of Heaven and Earth is the Holy Spirit, the seal of the second Covenant, the Father whom Jesus spoke so much about.
martinmiller:Huh? What does that mean?
martinmiller:Sure, a lifestyle but whose lifestyle? Yours or God's? Jesus said we have to decrease so that He may increase -- if it is about you, then it cannot be about Him, right?
|Re: Under What Are You Covered ! by martinmiller(m): 1:55am On May 24|
Kobojunkiu or whatever, you are simply contradicting my message and i can tell you for free that you need to read more on scriptures, from Saint Luke, to Corinthians and I bet it, you will understand nothing if you read it alone without tutelage or mentoring. you are still a baby Christian that is even if you are a Christian.
And I don't argue with canal minds as you have portrayed to be one, I can offer you some self help books, if you love reading, as this will re - construct your mind. You can write to me via my email for mentoring and self development if you are keen enough to learn or discover who you are. cheers
|Re: Under What Are You Covered ! by Kobojunkie: 2:00am On May 24|
martinmiller:Do you have some aversion to having your statements questioned? I have asked at least 10 questions of you so far about your own statements, and not a single one have you responded to. Why is that?
martinmiller:Asking questions is carnal? Interesting!
|Re: Under What Are You Covered ! by martinmiller(m): 2:10am On May 24|
I equally answer all your questions, but until yet you are not satisfied, yes, asking carnally minded questions proof you are not schooled enough at such Field.
Have you discovered who yourself?
And so if not itemize your questions to my email below.
|Re: Under What Are You Covered ! by Kobojunkie: 2:22am On May 24|
martinmiller:You have evaded every single question asked from the very first one, causing me to drill down and ask more specific questions of your own claim, but still nothing... no answer.
martinmiller:You wrote the article, or did you not?
martinmiller:You have been giving me the run around here where you so boldly posted your article, welcoming comments from people. Why would I want to email you after that?
|Re: Under What Are You Covered ! by martinmiller(m): 2:35am On May 24|
I offered you a parallel ground to shoot your questions with different options, your kind don't suprise me anymore as your name portrayed (kobojunkie).
Work on your self development at discovering yourself, be more read and stop being a (junkie) infact you just showed signs of unconstructive engagement and unseriousness .
|Re: Under What Are You Covered ! by Kobojunkie: 3:38am On May 24|
martinmiller:What? I have already posted my questions.
martinmiller:What? You are unable to respond to direct questions asked your person, but you still think it your place to suggest what I should do still?
