Do you wake up every day not wanting to just exist but want to live on purpose? You wholeheartedly want to please God but knowing that you struggle in a particular area you don’t always feel worthy to do what God called you to do. Author Michael L. Williams Jr. learned that the things he struggled with were the only thing that was powerful enough to ignite his PURPOSE!
One day, as I slept God showed me a vision, and in that vision, he was standing at the top of a mountain and all around him, was all this stuff and I heard him say “this is your inheritance.” So as I started to do as any person would I went to go retrieve what were mines, but as I was walking I seem to be walking in place and wasn’t getting closer and the vision went away. The same vision appeared the next day and again God was standing at the top of a mountain, and again I started to do like any person would I went to go retrieve what was clearly mines, and again I seem to be walking in place, but as I looked in front of me there was a person who had their arm on my chest holding me back, as I looked at them closer they had something tattooed all over their body and when I look intently to read what it said it read “This is your struggle.” instantly I got sad.
The same vision appeared the next day and again God was standing at the top of a mountain and again I started to do like any person would I went to go retrieve what was mines, and again I had that persons arm on my chest holding me back, which represented “My Struggles.” But this time God told me to look over my shoulder and as I looked over my shoulder there were 10 people behind me with their hands on each other’s back leading all the way up to my back, as I looked at them closer they had something tattooed all over their bodies and when I look intently to read what it said it read “This is your Purpose.” So I asked God what this vision means to me. He said, “Your PURPOSE is greater than your struggles.”
What struggle do you have today?
Is it a sickness? Is it other people’s opinions? Is it an identity crisis? Is it unbelief? Is it a sin? Is it loneliness? Is it gambling? Is it a prison? Is it molestation? Is it rape? Is it rejection? Is it pornography? Is it insecurity? Is it debt? Is it prostitution? Is it drugs or alcohol? Is it anger? Is it Satan? No matter what your struggle may be, your purpose is greater than your struggle.
