No matter how young or how old we are, no matter what the current circumstances around us, we dare not agree with opposition in health or time or circumstance or relationships more than we agree that Father God has determined our days. Our purpose is eternal and will continue when we step from this earthly realm into the next. We must remain faithful and full of hope in this earthly dimension, knowing it is the boot-camp development of our character and purpose for the next. We can take rest in the confidence that God has POSITIONED us for His plans. In covenant with our awesome God, it is His part to position our purpose in history. It is our part to walk it out daily. (Last excerpt from Kathy’s article “Positioned for Purpose”.)
As the people of God assemble today, may they realize that they are children of the Kingdom of God which is the Kingdom of Light and that there is nothing working in darkness that can defeat the unshakeable Kingdom of God. May they rejoice as those who walk in the Light and fellowship of King Jesus. ”Therefore, since we receive a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us show gratitude, and offer to God pleasing service and acceptable worship with reverence and awe;” (Heb.12:8, Amp)
In spite of the angle of descent of morals and values, in spite of what the world money market looks like, in spite of what the state of the union looks like, we stand on the brink of a destiny that our forefathers never imagined (Jer.33:3)—But it will require moving from being waiters and observers to acting. It will require shifting, modifications, transitions and intense exertion: the “violent” action of Matt.11:12 which means “intense exertion.” It is not violent in the sense of doing persons harm but in the sense of putting forth effort (i.e., intense exertion) in opposition to things that oppose purpose. We must oppose darkness like opposing a rattlesnake trying to crawl up in our bed. We must do it for our King and for a generation.

It takes faith to realize that our purpose is essential in the plans of God. If we try to measure the success of our lives, we step out of the protection of faith and trust in the Lord. God has the Grace we need to fulfill what we were born to do! So, let’s just do it. And may we never stop just because we can’t see its effect or success. Don’t stop being faithful daily just because you feel you can accomplish little or nothing. The purpose and plans of God will out last your weaknesses and mistakes and disappointments. Don’t stop because you are tired. Lean into His rest. Don’t stop because you are discouraged. Lean into His courage. God is faithful to guard His purpose in us because His purpose is bigger than us. (Twelfth excerpt from Kathy’s article “Positioned for Purpose”.)

It has often been said, “I don’t like that, we don’t do it that way where I come from,” indicating a determination not to accept or take part in whatever “it” is. That statement has also been made in reference to various forms of worship which different groups have practiced in worship services. We must admit, we can’t go wrong by sticking with Scripture. Perhaps the finest testimony concerning Israel is found in Exodus 39:43 “…they had done it just as the Lord had commanded.” The first point of realization for the worshipper here is to realize that the worshiper is not the focal point in worship… God is. The second point of realization that would greatly add to our worship is that we are to be responsive to what GOD WANTS. It may be that form that we have rejected or it may be some act that we have yet to discover in the Scriptures.
Is walking in God-ordained purpose easy? No, every biography of a known person in the Bible is far from easy. However, if God be for us, What or Who can be against us? Can age deteriorate purpose? Can circumstances nullify purpose? The enemy hopes you will think so. He hopes we will believe we are too weak, too old, too flawed or too unworthy to even have purpose. The enemy cannot defeat your purpose nor keep God from positioning you in history, he can only hope you will climb off your horse and quit!
