Your Hope-Filled Perspective with Dr. Michelle Bengtson podcast

Jul 23, 2020

Episode Summary:

  • In this episode, we talk about how to live a life of purpose. You can find your God-given purpose even when you feel lost. If you’ve ever wondered how to find your purpose, or what it even is, you won’t want to miss this episode with Dr. Kris Reece. Our guest is an expert in this area and will be sharing practical tips with us for living a life of purpose.

Quotables from the episode:

  • God can and will do exceedingly, abundantly, above what you could ask hope or think.  He desires to reveal your purpose even more than you desire to fulfill it.
  • Proverbs 25:2 reminds us that it is the glory of God to conceal a matter, it is the glory of kings to search it out.  God wants to take us on a journey of discovery. On that journey is where we find, truth, purpose and HIM.
  • We cannot find our “do” until we know our “be.”
  • Our purpose often isn’t pretty, but it’s perfectly ours.
  • 3 Ways God often reveals our purpose: positioning, prodding, and pulling.
  • Two common barriers to our purpose: trouble-free thinking and sensational thinking.
  • Our purpose is what we were created for; our career is what we do.
  • We may miss our purpose because we are focusing too much on our career.
  • If you want to know your purpose, ask God for a heart of discovery: to discover more about you and more about God.
  • Without God, we won’t find our God-given purpose. He has to be part of the equation.

Scripture References:

  • Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
  • Proverbs 25:2 “It is God’s privilege to conceal things, and the king’s privilege to discover them.”
  • Psalm 139:13 “You have made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb.”
  • Ephesians 3:20 “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,”
