- 1. You are gifted for your purpose. God has no afterthoughts. God does not wait for you to come back to your senses and then gift you. You came here loaded and gifted for your purpose.
2. You are talented for your purpose. While gifts are divine endowments, talents are inherent. Talents are passed on from our parental lineage. While some people are more talented, everyone is talented.
3. What do you love? What are you passionate about? What you passionately love can be a pointer to your purpose in life. Jesus was moved by love. His purpose was revealed by what He loved.
4. What do you hate? What can’t you stomach? Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gadhi and Martin Luther King Jr. hated segregation. They connected with their purpose through what they loathed.
5. What do others say about you? Objective people around you see your calling in life. If nobody around you sees it, work with a mentor or a life coach. They’ll guide you to connect with your purpose.
6. God aligned your personality type with your purpose in life. If you are an extrovert, your purpose required you to be outgoing. If you are an introvert, your purpose needed a more reserved personality.
7. Check your natural disposition. Your most typical tendencies. What you do effortlessly. This is different from what you love. You can love something that you don’t do.
Don’t pick any of the seven items and make conclusions. But if you find a common theme in more than four in the list of seven, it is a lead to your purpose in life. Often, God reveals the supernatural, naturally.
