Purpose Creates Motivation (#PowerandPurpose)

Purpose decreases frustration and increases motivation.

If I don’t have a purpose, why get out of bed?  Why get up in the morning?  Why make any effort.  The fact is, most people just kind of drift through life.  They’re kind of battered around.  They’re controlled by circumstances.  You talk to somebody and say, "How's it going?” and they say, “Not so bad considering the  circumstances.”  You want to say, “What are you doing under them?!?”  You should be on top of them.  Circumstances are like a feather mattress.  You get underneath  them and you suffocate.  You get on top and you rest easy.

Let me tell you the secret of lasting change.  Let me tell you the secret of energy, of motivation, of enthusiasm in life.  How do you get motivated in life?  Simple.  Discover your personal purpose in life.  When you do that, it motivates you to get out of bed.  You have a different attitude when you get up.  When you wake up in the morning you can either say, “Good morning, Lord!” or “Good Lord, it’s morning!”  Part of the difference is, do you have a purpose?  Do you have a purpose in life?

The secret of energy and enthusiasm and motivation is to discover your life purpose.  Why?  Because having the purpose gives you hope.  And everybody needs hope to keep going.

The Bible says that you cannot even imagine what God wants to do in your life.  Ephesians 3:20 says that “God is able to do far more than we think or ask or imagine, infinitely beyond our highest prayers, hopes and dreams.”  That’s what God wants to do in your life.  Discover your plan, your purpose.  Your frustration will decrease, your motivation will increase.
