How to Pursue a Purposeful Life 4 (Becoming hopeful in this dark world)


We give all the glory and honour to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords for His unconditional love, mercy, and grace. Loved one in Christ Jesus I hope you are moving in the strength of the Lord. This is episode four of my lessons on how to pursue a purposeful life. These wisdom keys will help you become hopeful in life and empower you to break barriers despite the limitations. If you have not read the previous lessons, kindly read them. Below are some wisdom keys to help you pursue a purposeful life and become hopeful in life.

11. Be Content and work effectively.

Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
Hebrews 13:5 KJV
One of the greatest weapons the enemy, the unbelievers and carnal Christians uses against sincere Christians who are not strong financially is money. Money is not evil because it helps us do greater things in life. Money becomes evil when we lust after it. As the Bible says, the love of money is the root of all evil (See 1 Timothy 6:10). Get my book “One Step in the Light One Step in the Darkness” for more profound revelation.

Billy Graham said, one of the greatest keys to happiness is contentment. If you want to be happy in life, be content with what you have and work effectively to improve your status. Joyce Meyer said, “Contentment doesn’t mean that you don't ever want anything or you don’t want to see any change in your life but it means you can be satisfied at where you at on the way to where you are going through trusting God and believing that He is working in your life.” 

The Bible says that we should refrain from covetousness. Do you know that people have died because of money? Jesus said we cannot serve money and serve God at the same time (See Luke 16:13). Get me right. I am not condemning money because money can help us in many ways. Money becomes evil when our love for it exceeds the love of God.

I know Christians who are rich yet they serve God wholeheartedly. God promises us that if we are content with what we have, He will never leave us nor forsake us. Love ones in Christ Jesus, don’t misinterpret contentment and live in poverty. Contentment doesn’t mean you should accept poverty.

  • Contentment means you are happy with yourself.
  • Contentment means you love God with all your heart.
  • Contentment means your love for Jesus Christ exceeds anyone else’s love.
  • Contentment means you are not jealous of others.
  • Contentment means you are ready to serve God with what you have.
  • Contentment means depending on God.
  • Contentment means you don’t solely depend on humankind for help.
  • Contentment means you will not sell your virtue for fame, power, and earthly glory.


12. Love Knowledge

Who is as the wise man? and who knoweth the interpretation of a thing? a man's wisdom maketh his face to shine, and the boldness of his face shall be changed.
Ecclesiastes 8:1 KJV
No one can deceive you if you are knowledgeable. Know these truths.

  • The reason many people are deceived is that they are ignorant.
  • The reason many people are destroyed is that they are ignorant.
  • The reason God rejects people is that they are ignorant.
  • The reason people are hopeless in life is that they are ignorant.
  • The reason people cannot be purposeful in life is that they are ignorant.
Loved one, if you want to be who God made you, you must love wisdom and knowledge. In my book “The Supernatural Wisdom Keys” I have explained wisdom and knowledge. Get the book for more profound revelation. If you want to be successful in life, never neglect knowledge.

Learn from the experiences of people. Be addicted to good books that can broaden your mind and make you a better person. Don’t spend too much time on movies, games, social media, ungodly conversation, visionless groups and people. Spend quality time with the Word (Holy Bible) because the Word contains perfect wisdom.

Read books (especially Christian books) that can help you in your field. The more you read, the more you become resourceful and relevant. Most people dislike reading because of temporal pleasure. Great men and women who made history were readers.

  • If you want to be relevant in life, read life-transforming books.
  • If you want to be purposeful in life, read life-transforming books.
  • If you want to break the spirit of fear, inferiority and hopelessness, read life-transforming books. Get my book "How To Break the spirit of Inferiority" for more profound revelation.
  • If you don’t want God to reject you, read life-transforming books.
  • If you want to be a useful tool in the hands of God, read life-transforming books.
  • If you don’t want to become a tool in the enemy’s hand, read life-transforming books.
  • If you don’t want to be a liability to those around you, read life-transforming books.
  • If you don’t want to die young, read life-transforming books.
  • If you want to be a fixed asset to the organization, read life-transforming books.
  • If you don’t want to be like the lost people in the street, read life-transforming books.
  • If you want to be creative in life, read life-transforming books.
  • If you want to connect with God’s will, read life-transforming books.
  • If you want to be significant in your country, community, and in a different part of the world, read life-transforming books.
  • If you want to be a better person, read life-transforming books.
  • If you want people to sit under your tent and receive wisdom, read life-transforming books.
  • If you want people to invest in you, read life-transforming books.
  • If you want to be a general in God’s kingdom, read life-transforming books.
  • If you want to be a mysterious wonder in this world, read life-transforming books.
  • If you don’t want others to cheat you, read life-transforming books.
  • If you want to be happy in life, read life-transforming books.
I hope these few truths will provoke you to be a reader. Meditate on this scripture for more revelation.

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
Hosea 4:6 KJV


13. Associate with people on your path.

Can two walk together, except they be agreed?
Amos 3:3 KJV
Do you want to go far in life? Then you must know these truths.

  • Choose a marriage partner compatible with your vision, mission, assignment, and purpose.
  • Choose and associate with groups compatible with your vision, assignment, mission, and purpose.
  • Choose and associate with people compatible with your vision, assignment, mission, and purpose.
  • Live in an environment that can accommodate your vision, mission, and assignment.
  • Seek counsel from people who walk on your path.
If you want to be who God made you to become, never equally associate with people who hate and disagree with your purpose. If you associate with such people, they will limit you and make you lose faith in what God has called you to do. Connect with people who share your fears, joy, and purpose because they can encourage you when you are down. They can be a source of hope to you when they are around you. 
I will continue in episode five.
Shalom.
