Polishing Our Pearl of Greatest Price: Discovering Your Purpose by Deb Stanley
Polishing Our Pearl of Greatest Price: Discovering Your Purpose by Deb Stanley - In Matthew 13:45-46, Jesus talks about Heaven being like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away, sold everything, and bought it. The pearl he found was priceless. It was worth everything to him – so much so that he sold everything in exchange for having it in his possession. I believe the pearl also refers to our life’s purpose. Jesus says the Kingdom of God is within us (Luke 17:21). Since the Kingdom of God is within us, our pearl, our purpose, is woven into our very being. How do we go about finding this pearl? Will we be like the merchant in the passage who goes to great lengths to discover his purpose?Imagine the loving care our Heavenly Father took in knitting us together in the womb (Psalm 139:13). When people knit something of value, great care and attention are poured into their creation. Knit one, pearl two - each strand of our DNA was fashioned by God as He called us into life.As He created us, He placed a pearl of great value in us. This pearl is our purpose – our reason for being. The fact that you are alive and breathing is evidence that you have a unique calling. So often we think of Heaven as up there or out there somewhere, but Heaven is within us. We sometimes seek our purpose outside of ourselves, but our calling is woven into our very being. In Polishing Your Pearl of Greatest Price, you will find 60 devotions dedicated to helping you discover your purpose. As you read, thank God for creating you just the way you are. In Matthew 6:33, Jesus says to seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all of these things will be given to you as well. As you love and serve God and others, His plan for you will unfold. A journal page has been provided after each devotion where you can record your thoughts and answer the question(s) provided. I am praying for you as you experience the greatest adventure you will ever participate in: the quest to discover, refine, and polish your pearl of greatest price.
