There are many members of the Body of Christ, even seasoned and mature sons and daughters, who know that what they are currently doing, is not the purpose for which they have come. And I will be the first to say that it is better for you to be busy doing something in the name of the Lord, than to be busy waiting to do something in the name of the Lord. We can usually find our way off the right exit to where we are going, if we have been going down the main road where all exits run off. So if you are making your way down the main road to your purpose, it will be just a matter of time before you come up on the detour to where you need to get off. And keep in mind, a detour is a sign intentionally placed where you must see it, in order for you to end up where you were trying to go. The Lord knows those out on the main road looking for him, and he will make sure that you get the detour that you need to end up where you need to be. When we are out busy, and looking for the place where the hand of the Lord awaits us, good things will generally happen along the way. We do not get punished for heading to where we must be since where we start out is usually not the place. There is one word in the Bible that just about everyone, and I mean just about everyone, receives from God as part of their purpose to fulfill: “GO”, the word is “GO.” The only people that really didn’t have to “GO” was Adam and Eve, and they were “PUT” into their garden. So there is no punishment for being busy as you “GO,” but you don’t want to be caught not going, unless you are of the few who were “Put.” I would take the time to identify a few “GO” scriptures, but it’s so many to where you can just flip a page and land on one by chance: GO to a land, GO build an Ark, Go to the cross, Go to Egypt, Go to the Gentiles, Go feed my people, GO deliver your son today vs three weeks later(my bad, that wasn’t Bible, that was me), and on and on the beat doesn’t stop until the “GO” stops; and the “GO” doesn’t stop until we “GO” to heaven.
So why must we GO? We all have come here for a purpose, and we all will get into our purpose that we come into as we GO. It would be nice, I suppose, if we could just snap, crackle, and pop right into the milk and eat of the word from beginning to end right there on the spot, but we probably wouldn’t be ready to handle the load necessary to get into the purpose. You know, I am all in favor of on the job training, but lets keep the training program within living parameters: you remember that one GO operation in the Bible, GO to a land of milk and honey? How does that living parameter go from thirteen days all the way to be bookend at forty years? There were many that did not survive the living parameter of that GO operation. So I suggest that all who can, show a little more cooperation with your leadership on your way down the main road, so that your exit will come up on you much sooner than later. Man or woman, that later stuff is not the way you want to go, especially when you can go on your way much sooner. Now here is why you don’t want to waste your time doing that which is not your purpose; and grant it, the part of it that gets you where you need to be, is not a waste of time, but an unavoidable growing pain blessing. You have seen in the natural, what can happen to many many that came from eighteen with very little, and just be put into more than they have ever had to handle at twenty-two: no, they still end up going through the unavoidable growing pain experience. It is a blessing when you experience the unavoidable growing pain on this side of more than you ever had to handle, but it is an experience when you have to handle the results of going through the unavoidable growing pains on the other side of the blessing. The Father is an excellent preparer of the unavoidable growing pains, he sends you through it at your experience expense, so that you don’t have to go through it at his blessing expense: oh yeah, just because you may be on the main road to your purpose, you are still in the natural as you are on your road to your purpose.
Oh, so why must we GO? I didn’t quite answer that from the last time I asked this question at the beginning of the second paragraph of this post. Let me just answer it now: you must Go in order to be in the purpose for which you are anointed to do. If you don’t GO to your purpose, you may hang around and do some good, but you will not do the good that you can do in the anointing that awaits you for the purpose in which you were called to do. The Father has a specific purpose in which only you can do, and that part in which only you can do will be missing from the whole if you don’t do it. And to do our specific callings and purposes, we have been anointed to do them. Many of us have been blessed to find our purpose, but may not been able to GO to it yet. Keep pushing down the main road, for your exit to your purpose is nigh, just do not settle for less. The thing that you are called to do, has a power on you for it that will bring to pass the greatness of your purposes as the Father has intended. And as you continue down the main road to your exit, just say this to your current busy self; Because I Didn’t Come For That Purpose. Once you are in your purpose and doing it, you will find out how different it is to do: you are now doing what you are anointed to do, and not just what you have the faith to do.
Isaiah 61:1, “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound.”
Luke 4:18, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,”
One can’t do their things in which they are called to do without the power of the anointing. Now Go do that which you have the anointing on you to do, and say time out to the rest: Because I Didn’t Come For That Purpose.
The Father Still Does Love To Do The Body Good.
