Pablo Picasso once said that action is the foundational key to all success. Although it’s understandable that one must make a move toward something to learn and grow, the underpinning of all action must be faith. Action for the sake of action is a haphazard way of living. It isn’t purposeful. As the Bible reminds us, God works for the good of those who love him and who are called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28).
Do you try to discern God’s purpose for your life? Many people question how they would know it. In our worldly existence it often manifests as a “gut feeling,” an inner knowing of the proper course, particularly if that feeling brings God-given gifts of inner peace, encouragement and confidence (Philippians 4:6-7; Joshua 1:9; Isaiah 40:31). Do you need to adjust your inner compass? Ask the Holy Spirit, your counselor and helper, to guide you (John 14:26).
