You possess the capacity to be a leader within the sphere of the purpose for which you were born. Your plans may change, but your purpose is constant.

You were born pregnant with potential and programmed for a unique purpose. God did not simply drop you from heaven. You did not just fall through time and space into this place where you now live. Your existence was designed by God long before you landed. You see, God always has a plan. Even when mankind fails, as Adam and Eve did in the Garden of Eden, God has a back-up plan.

John recorded in Revelation 13:8 that the Lamb (Jesus) was "slain from the foundation of the world." Before Adam named the animals, before Eve walked her beautiful self up to that tree and had that course-changing conversation with the ultimate creepy-crawler, God had a plan - redemption for man.

Everything God does or has ever done has a purpose. God does nothing outside of purpose. God moves only in regard to purpose. The course of time and space and everything since then that relates to our universe God did on purpose, in purpose, for purpose, about purpose, or because of purpose.

Have you ever asked yourself, "Why am I here? What is my reason for being? What is my purpose?" Many people ask themselves these questions every day. Some feel they have meaningless lives, but the Bible tells them a different story.

My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
Psalm 139:15-16 NIV

God has had a plan and a purpose for you since before you were even conceived. If you haven't asked Him what that is, right now is the time. And once He tells you, ask Him what's the first step - and then take it!

Author Biography

Web site:
Carman Domenic Licciardello is an enigma in Christian music, often described as part evangelist, part Vegas Showman. His concerts were more like a rock and roll Billy Graham Crusade than a Christian music event. After all the singing, dancing, clapping and preaching, throngs of people would stream down to the counseling area to accept Christ-many times as many as 5,000 in an evening.
