TOPIC: Purpose and Training
“I am a Jew, born in Tarsus of Cilicia,
but brought up in this city. I studied under
Gamaliel and was thoroughly trained in the
law of our ancestors. I was just as zealous
for God as any of you are today" - Acts 22:3.
When Paul thought he knew his purpose as a Jew, he pursued it will great zeal and found the best mentor and training he could find. This all came in handy later when his purpose was adjusted to be an apostle. In other words, God cannot promote potential. He can only promote those who have developed their potential to the fullest. Training and education are a big part of that development. What are you doing to develop your purpose or what you think is your purpose? Are you seeking training and education as part of that development? Is reading a part of that development plan?
Lord, I want to be the fullest, best expression of who you created me to be. Therefore, I need and want the training, knowledge and skill that will make that happen. Send me opportunities and people to develop my potential and I commit to do the work to become 'world-class' in my purpose expression.
