Devotional: Special Purposes Are Fulfilled Through Specific Work
Part of fulfilling the special purposes that God has for us is understanding that we have specific assignments and work, requiring specific focus. The purpose that you have requires assignments that differ from members of your family, your peers, your coworkers, and your friends. If we fail to pay attention to the specific work that God places before us, we’ll never live up to the call of the special purposes that he has. There is nothing generic for the child of God – our Father has called us to special purposes, fulfilled through specific work.
