Start With Your Creator
The first moon landing in 1969 was a momentous event in history. On that day, mankind achieved something that many previously thought impossible. The amazing thing is that because the wind does not blow on the moon, the footprints of over 40 years ago are still there and will be there for a very long time.
For this reading plan, leaving your footprints on the moon refers to the fulfilment of your God given purpose for your life; the achievement of that seemingly impossible or unattainable goal that can only happen with divine empowerment. Purpose represents something God has placed in your heart to become; a role He has chosen for you to fulfil; a place He has destined for you to occupy and a need He has created you in answer to.
You have been created for a purpose.
It is no accident that God brought you into this world at this time, in this place and to this set of people in your generation.
Your parents might not have planned for you to be alive but God did. You might have seemed like an inconvenience to them, or they may have even tried to abort you.
All that is irrelevant.
You are here because God wants you here. Therefore, like the clay before the potter, you must go before your Maker in order to find the purpose for which He has brought you into the world.
In Genesis 12:1-3, God asked Abraham (then Abram) to get out of his comfort zone, leave his father's house and go to Canaan where God vowed to make him and his descendants a great nation. One man, barren but faithful, was given a mighty promise. This was Abraham's moon. He did not define it himself; the Almighty God gave it to Him.
Like Abraham, you must begin to ask God to define your moon for you. If you do not know what your purpose in life is, ask God today.
Let Him show you His will for your life.
