I am... A World Changer (week 1)
USE THE KEY
Wisdom is the key. When determining what your purpose, wisdom is needed. Without it, you are more likely to be swayed by popularity or by others. Wisdom aids in discovering your purpose within God’s plan. Being a World Changer may mean that you must go against popular culture, but God’s wisdom directs real culture.
God’s wisdom reveals purpose.
God’s wisdom strengthens purpose.
God’s wisdom maintains purpose.
God reveals His wisdom through the scriptures, family, and trusted friends. There are many different causes out there clamoring for champions, but not all of them have as eternally lasting effect like those that line up with God’s plan. To be a World Changer, you first must seek for Wisdom to help you determine your purpose.
Once purpose is clear, you need wisdom to maintain and strengthen it so that focus does not wander away from God’s plans. Wisdom helps to continually rely on God and to keep your purpose at the center of His will.
