WHERE DO YOU FIND IT?

Where do you find the significance of your life?

Have you ever wondered what your purpose in life is or how you are to go about finding out what makes your life so unique?  

I will admit, I was 24 years old before I understood that I was a 3-part being.  I remember reading a neat book about Spirit, soul & body, in the back of a truck on a road trip.  I understood for the first time that the real me (the real you) is the innermost part of our being.  That innermost part is the Spirit (heart).

We are body, soul & spirit.  The body is how we experience the physical world.  The soul is the mind, will & emotions.  The Spirit, the innermost being, is where God quickens us with His Spirit to know, understand and communicate with Him.

I'm pretty sure we could all say, if we truly believed we could communicate with Almighty God, that surely we could know what our purpose of life is.

This is not some far off thought - we can draw near to God and know Him.  We can understand and communicate with Him by His Spirit, the innermost part of us (heart).

And I will give them one heart [a new heart] and I will put a new Spirit within them; and I will take the stony [unnaturally hardened] heart out of their flesh, and will give them a heart of flesh [sensitive and responsive to the touch of their God]  Ezekiel 11:19 AMP

Our part is to acknowledge our sin that separates us from Him.  We make the choice to repent (turn from our way of doing things) and ask Him to direct our lives....give up our self-seeking ways.....God will so quicken our hearts so that we will be brought back into a relationship (that sin separated us from). 

You can know Him, and your purpose, through this new relationships with Him!  What is more, you will begin to understand His Word (the Bible) and His voice that speaks directly to your heart.

Here are just 2 scriptures that speak about God speaking to the heart, the innermost you :)

Solomon finished the house of the Lord, and the king's house: and all that came into Solomon's heart to make in the house of the Lord, and in his own house, he prosperously effected.  2 Chronicles 7:11 KJV

And when he was full forty years old, it came into his heart to visit his brethren the children of Israel.  Acts 7:23 KJV

The One who created you, wants to reveal His intentions to your heart.  It is more than an ordinary pulse - it is a very real sense of knowing "this is what I was created for!"  

Today, will you hear and listen to God's call?  He's calling to those who know Him and to those who are ready to know Him :)

What has God has put into YOUR heart do so?
