Do You Have a Determined Purpose?

The Apostle Paul said “For my determined purpose is that I may know Him, and that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him” -Philippians 3:10 ( Amplified Version)

My determined purpose: a statement that speaks of making a firm choice. This is something that won’t happen automatically just because you are a Christian, attend church or Life Group but rather a choice made daily to intimately pursue Him.

This verse also speaks of progression. Progression is moving steadily forward in the goal of knowing God more intimately; being able to hear His voice in both the daily choices of life as well as major choices, choices like a career change. In order to progress in my relationship with Christ, I know that I need to be disciplined daily, getting before the Lord and seeking His direction for both life’s subtle and major decisions.
