Well there are a number of reasons why people don’t pursue their God given Purpose. Out of fear, every time things get hard they give up, or they are just too distracted by their own life and society.
You see the devil does not have the authority to kill you. But he will come to you in thoughts, ideas, and suggestions. All he has to do is distract you with social media. Distract you with a Beyoncé concert, distract you with your relationships, distract you with the football game. He can’t kill you but he can distract you to the point you get nothing done. If you are struggling with figuring out who you are and why you are created, you may need to take a break from those things and seek Gods face.
Most people are so caught up in their own life and in their own plans, they don’t take the time to spend with God and hearing his voice and seeking direction. If you’re not careful your own life can become a distraction from what God is telling you to do, and you wonder why you don’t know your purpose. Just like any other relationship in order to get to know someone you have to spend time with them you have to understand their ways. How much time are you spending with God? A healthy relationship is a two-way street. Where is most of your attention going through out the day? What is a constant interruption in your life?
How to overcome Distraction:
- Figure out what gets most of your time and energy. It’s hard to overcome something if you don’t know what it is you need to overcome.
- Be intentional about spending time with God. Make it a part of your daily routines. Eventually it will become a lifestyle.
- You should be working on your purpose daily.
