A Precise Life Purpose

I read a clear and precise statement in Exodus that reminds me of a life’s purpose.

God says to Moses in Exodus 9:16, “I have raised you up for this very purpose, that I might show you my power and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.”

I mention to my husband how clarifying this statement is as applied to my own life. What if the unchanging God desires this for us–that we might be shown His power and work as instruments of proclamation? 

Power and proclamation.

This helps me makes sense of suffering and disappointment on the one hand, and blessing and prosperity on the other. If everything that happens to me is about God showing me His power, then I interpret every circumstance–good or bad–through this lens: God can show His power through this.

And if God is in the business of proclaiming His wonderful name through the earth, then I become a conduit of that proclamation, no matter where I am or what I’m doing.

Power and proclamation.

Precise!
