A Joseph Calling, Fulfilling Your Purpose and Putting God First
This is the first time I have ever experienced all 3 devotionals speaking a message the Lord wants an individual or individuals to hear. The same theme runs through all of them, relationship with our Father is the key to your life. Instead of our normal format, I’m writing a short intro to each one and adding the links for the full devotional. I encourage you to read the one that speaks to you this morning.
There are so many unanswered questions in life. The most difficult is trying to understand the will of God. While this first devotional will not answer all of those questions, you will gain insight to the why’s of life if you are going through ‘stuff’ right now. I’m reminded of Romans 8:28, And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

“And he sent a man before them – Joseph, sold as a slave.” – Psalm 105:17
Each of us has a specific God ordained purpose in life. Our willingness to seek Him will determine if we will ever fulfill His mission for our life on earth. There is much more in Psalm 139, I encourage you to read all of it not just the first 4 verses.

“O LORD, you have searched me and You know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; You perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; You are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue You know it completely, O LORD.”-(Ps 139:1-4).
It has been my experience the key to long term success is placing God as our first priority. When I place things ahead of my relationship with the Lord, I loose focus on the mission He has me on. When I loose focus on my mission, my life becomes dysfunctional. When my life become dysfunctional I start wandering in the wilderness wondering what I’m suppose to be doing. Don’t wander in the wilderness, seek God first each morning. Hhmmm…sounds like a TV commercial. Seek Him daily, make your relationship with Him first priority.
