Empowered

There’s so much I want to do or accomplish in life, but I find myself unable to, almost lame or without power.
These last two weeks, our church had a conference with the following theme: EMPOWERED FOR HIS PURPOSE. Quite a thought-provoking title for me. God will not empower me for my purpose, or for no purpose. But He will surely empower me and back me up when I am involved with His purpose.
So when I find myself without strength, it is time to reevaluate what I am doing. Is my life in line with His purpose? Only when I surrender my own purpose will I be able to pick up His. IT is then that the strength of God will fill me and enable to move forward in power.
But… is it safe to surrender my own purposes? Can I really simply give them up? Yes, a million times yes. Only when I am involved in His will does my life make sense.
I remember Jesus saying that the one who seeks to save his life will lose it, but the one who lets it go will gain it. What a revelation that is!
