This Isn’t What I Expected

I spend a lot of time talking about the importance of discovering your purpose. Most often, in scripture though, we find that people’s purpose discovered them. There are times that God comes and places His hand on you. He blesses you and uses you to accomplish great things.  When this happens, part of you says: “Wait a minute, this isn’t what I expected!”

Mary didn’t expect a full-term teenage pregnancy.
Noah didn’t expect to build a  larger than life boat to preserve the human race.
Moses didn’t expect to be responsible for leading a million slaves into the wilderness.

You want to know the truth. God doesn’t have to ask your permission to fulfill His purpose through you.You may not get a vote, or an opportunity to veto. So just graciously accept, and lean in to it.
