Find Your Purpose in the Word

 

A number of times I have been asked what the Bible says about ‘finding your purpose’. In short, if your purpose line up with God’s purpose for you, you become unstoppable. If your will get synchronised with God’s will than you become indestructible, because you now carry a supernatural mandate!

Here is what the Bible says about your purpose;
