I cry out to God Most High, to God, who fulfills His purpose for me.
Psalm 57:2, NIV*
Lately I’ve been thinking this verse is about more than some “greater purpose” or particular calling God may have for my life.
What about the “ordinary” purposes that take up most of my day? Wife, mother, daughter, neighbour, church member. Each role has various responsibilities that I can see as chores or obligations if I view them as keeping me from what I really want to do.
My whole perspective changes when I remember that God has a purpose for me in each of these roles. Instead of being mundane stuff that interferes with my “greater purpose,” they may well be my greater purpose.
Father, please give me Your perspective on life. Help me start each day and enter each role with a prayer for grace and an attitude of loving gratitude to You. Remind me that You want to work out Your purpose for me.
Our song this week is a quiet prayer for all areas of our lives: “(In My Life, Lord) Be Glorified”
