God Has a Plan for You with Andrew Ripp
Christian singer and songwriter, Andrew Ripp, said, “You figure out who you are when you recognize who you are in regard to your divine call.”
All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
– Psalm 139:16 NIV
Your life is a beautiful narrative, intricately woven with purpose and God’s intention. In a world that often pushes us toward self-centered pursuits, understanding your divine calling can provide a grounding sense of identity and purpose.
1 Peter 2:9 explains: “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light” (NIV). God’s calling and purpose is the solid foundation for your existence.
God has chosen you, loves you and has a unique purpose for your life.
Your divine calling is not just about what you do, but more importantly, about who you are in relationship to God. Mining this call on your life involves prayer, reading the Bible and sitting quietly, inviting God to reveal His purpose for you. Regular quiet times can help you understand God’s purpose for your life and the role it plays in defining who you are.
In an interview with Andrew Ripp, he talked about his journaling practice. Keeping a journal helps to record your reflections and any insights that emerge from your quiet times. This can serve as a powerful tool to track your spiritual journey and provide encouragement during times of uncertainty.
As you align with your divine calling, your understanding of your authentic self will deepen. This alignment allows you to navigate life with intentionality and purpose, resulting in a fulfilling life marked by God’s purpose and His authenticity.
