This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Romans 12:2 (KJV)
Today I am thinking about seeking clarity of purpose. In Luke Chapter 4, Jesus gives us a good example of what it looks like to have clarity of purpose.
At this time, Jesus is in the synagogue where He tells the people, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me. He has appointed me to preach the good news to the poor.” (Luke 4:18) NLT
While those words are powerful, here’s what impacts me even more – just as Jesus had finished reading from the scroll, He handed the scroll back to the attendant and sat down. The Scriptures even say that after He sat down, “…everyone in the synagogue stared at him intently.” (Luke 4:20) NLT
In that moment, He spoke with such clarity. He knew who He was and why He was there.
In contrast, I am reminded of the days when I was trying to explain to people what I believed God was calling me to do. Back then, I would just ramble on and on. Sometimes I would ramble to the point where I even confused myself.
However, here’s one key takeaway about reaching a point of clarity. Prior to Jesus standing up in that synagogue, He had been in the desert for forty days and forty nights being tested and tempted. Going through a period of testing can bring about great clarity.
The Words that I use to inspire me are, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Romans 12:2 (KJV)
Please share this reflection with others as they also desire to be inspired.
So today, if you’re being tested know that clarity will follow.
“Clarity is born of pressure” is a powerful, yet great reminder for those being tested on purpose and direction. Thank you Suzette! You’re always right on time:) xo
Thanks so much! It reminds me that tough times can serve a purpose in our lives
