When we’re in our late 20’s, we begin to think about our purpose and how it’s going to be fulfilled. Some of us know our purpose and some of us don’t. Regardless of where we are, there’s a temptation to be anxious about fulfilling our purpose. We look at our current situation and know we’re not walking out or even on the pathway of our purpose. This can be frustrating.

When working towards our purpose, patience is necessary. We hear about all the success stories or read about people in the bible fulfilling their purpose and want to instantly be in our purpose. Some may be fulfilling their purpose now, but that’s not the case for everyone. It takes time for some.

Look at Joseph. God revealed Joseph’s purpose when he was 17. It wasn’t until he was 30 when he fulfilled his purpose. Jesus was 33 when He fulfilled His purpose. The point is there’s some maturing that needs to take place, some things we need to learn, and some things that need to line up in order for our purpose to be maximized.

So, be patient with purpose and believe where we are now is not always where we’re going to be.

Psalm 138:8 The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me; your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever. Do not forsake the work of your hands.
