TEXT: GENESIS 12: 1-2, 4a
“The lord has said to Abram, leave your country, your people and your father’s household and go to the land I will show you. I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you, I will make your name great and you will be a blessing. So Abram left as the lord has told him.”
This life is a journey that you started from the first day you were born, and the journey continues until death comes. Our stay on earth is temporary, no matter how long you stay on earth, you will go back home to meet your maker one day, because death is inevitable. (I pray that the lord will satisfy us with long life in Jesus name).
This journey of life is an automatic journey because we don’t have control over it; each day spent on earth draws us closer to the end of the journey. The clock started ticking from the day you were born, you cannot pause it, and neither can you rewind it. That is why we cannot afford to waste a minute of our time, because we have no control over the journey of life.

Besides the journey of life that is mandatory and automatic, there is another journey that you need to start at a certain stage of your life. This is what I called the JOURNEY OF PURPOSE; this is what this message is based on. Many people are in this world living without purpose, they don’t know what they want in life, and if you don’t know what you want in life, whatever life throws at you, you will accept because you don’t really know the exact thing that you want in life. Unlike the journey of life that you have no control over, to some extent you have control over the journey of your purpose. God created you for a purpose, while you are going through the journey of life, He wants you to fulfil a purpose also, and He does not want you to go through the journey of life aimlessly. The journey of life and the journey of purpose are to be embark on concurrently, God is your creator; He is the only one that can tell you the purpose He wants you to fulfil on earth. Therefore you need to go to Him in prayer and ask Him to show you your purpose in life. Your parents are human beings therefore they are limited in wisdom and understanding, they cannot be the one to tell you what your purpose in life is, you need to consult your maker, seek His face so that He will reveal your purpose to you.
