7 Keys To Purpose I Week 6: Promises and Profession

Updated: Jun 17, 2021

Welcome to the final week of the 7 Keys to Purpose blog series. In case you missed it, last week we dived into how preparation is a key to purpose. This week we will cover the last 2 keys to unlocking purpose in your life. This week is all about promises and profession, so let's get started with these God-given keys.

Key 6: Promises

Key 7: Profession

You have access to the promises of God. You must receive them. Daily speak life and the word of God over your life to activate your purpose.

Let's clarify, I'm not talking about your career, though the act of professing does take work. I define profession as the work of speaking the word of God or positive words over your life. This is the best work you can do to bring ease and flow into your life. God is the inspiration for this work. God is the original affirmer, "I am God of a thousand hills". Therefore you can profess, "I am a child of the God of a thousand hills". There is no greater purpose than to wake up every morning professing.

Profess what? You might ask. Any and everything by faith according to his word, your health, peace, finances, purpose, family; the areas are unlimited. Ask God what areas you need to grow in and start there. For example, if you want to grow in hope then profess Roman 15:13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit."

God rewards those who can speak well over their lives. I believe God wants us to have an expectation for our good. Why? because he is a good father and his word cannot return to you void. He also rewards your faith. And without faith, it is impossible to please him for whoever draws near to God must believe that he exists and rewards those who seek him. Hebrews 11:6 (ESV) You are exercising your faith because you are speaking beyond what you can see in the natural. For we live by faith, and not by sight. 2 Corinthians 5:7 (NIV)

For believers, Kingdom people, children of the most-high God you should expect to be blessed. Blessed to be a blessing and going from glory to glory. You made them a little lower than the angels; you crowned them with glory and honor. Hebrews 2:7 (NIV)

This doesn't mean challenges won't come but we will overcome as we are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus. We can trust God is with us and goes before us to fight our battles. When you're aligned to God's word you're on purpose. His word will move you toward his perfect will for your life which is goodness. Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Psalms 23:6 (NIV)
