WHAT IS HIGHER THAN FEAR? PURPOSE.
Tonight, we were watching a movie and it was one of those movies I regularly do not watch. Too much blood. Too much killing. Too much of everything. It was an us against them scenario with little hope for any survivors. Basically, it was a situation where there was a leader who was taken captive and in the building where he was held, there was one trained man who was hidden and came after the men who took the leader captive. I know that was a long sentence. Breathe in and breathe out. Could it be that purpose is higher than fear?
What do I mean? I watched the trained man do whatever he had to do to in order to reach the leader. He was beaten, stabbed, attacked, shot and everything you can think of while on his way to reach the leader. However, this is what I noticed. The man who was trained was focused. He pushed past all his pain and all his calamity and remained focused – his goal? Get the leader out from the clutches of the enemy. He had purpose. Purpose is higher than fear.
I got revelation.
This is the key. Say it again with me – aloud – Purpose is HIGHER than fear.
Purpose is always associated with taking over or having intent. Assignment is short term or long term but is more like a measurable goal to master or complete. So, here is my question regarding assignments and purpose.
What keeps you from moving forward in life? Do you have fear?
What are you afraid of? Are you afraid of success? Failure? Are you afraid of pain? Are you afraid of losing? Are you afraid of change? Are you afraid of your job ending? Are you afraid of dying? Are you afraid of living? What are you afraid of?
What is your purpose? Do you have it? Let me tell you that if you cannot think of it – that does not mean you don’t have one. Everyone has purpose and I mean everyone. You must determine yours in order to be successful on this side of heaven. Purpose is different than assignment.
Purpose seems broad but basically it just means to take over and complete your assignment. That’s right – take authority – take command – be the leader over that project, that idea, that goal – lead that assignment. Perhaps you are overwhelmed. Stop and look yourself in the mirror and start with you. Straighten your shoulders if you can and look yourself in the mirror if you can and hold your head up if you can and say with me, “I am important. I am significant. I am alive on purpose.”Dismiss what keeps you from moving forward and say with me Purpose is higher than fear.
This is the thing – when we know our assignment -we can focus on the steps to fulfilling it. When things get hazy, we can return to the assignment. When things get busy, we can return to the assignment. When we are completely distracted, we can return to assignment. Why? Because the assignment needs to be completed in order for you to have your next assignment….
WHY did he complete his mission? He kept his focus on the assignment. Let us do the same. He disallowed torment from keeping him from completing his job. Purpose is higher than fear.
#BEBRAVER – GET Purpose.
Pray with me:
Father, I ask for YOU to give me clarity on Your mission and your assignment for my life and the goals I need to complete it. Give me revelation and help me move forward in Jesus name. Let it be.
Until next time!
