A Critical Ingredient to Knowing God's Purpose for Your Life

Walking in God's will begins with this.

How does one step into their destiny; activating the power and might of the Most High God? 

This is something I've been actively wrestling with for decades. From what I hear, others have too.

In my own prayer and study, I've discovered part of the answer lies in Hebrews 11:6b: 

"... for he who comes to God must believe that He exists and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him" (Heb. 11:6).


There's an introductory level that's cognizant of God's existence. Perhaps it subtly acknowledges that Scripture is true and that Jesus came in the flesh. It enjoys celebrating the festivities of Christmas and Easter.

Yet, kingdom realities come from more than mere acknowledgment. At its core, it's an intimacy that positions believers for greater realms of glory.

Too often we're sidetracked by what we think that we know. Unfolding a detailed, full-color map will never be as impactful as visiting a distant land. There is something about actually being there in the flesh.

Acknowledging God's existence is only part of the equation. If that's all you are drawing from, you'll only go so far. Something else must be activated.

Genuine faith possesses a heart-changing revelation about the nature and character of God. It comprehends that God is truly a rewarder.

Engagements that are not rooted in the kindness and benevolence of God will always be constrained.

When you know who Jesus is and how He operates, you are uniquely positioned to transform the world.
