-Gen 37-40 It talks of Joseph (a man of purpose)
-Purpose is the reason for which something exists.
-How many know their purpose?
-It seems even at tertiary setup most of you do not know yr purposes, no wonder you called me!
-Now, if you want to know how a garget works or its purpose you read the manual
-A human beings manual is the Bible.
-It is God who knows yr purpose, so if you want to truly know yr purpose you need to ask God like I did!
- (1 Corinthians 1:30) says fellowship wt wisdom to know yr purpose.
- If you find God you will find yr purpose.
-Now, when I was young I used to like fancy cars such that when I grow up my goal was to own a fortune.
-I fall in love wt monetary issues more than anything else.
-In fact, yr purpose is into things you enjoy doing most. Things you can do the whole day without looking at the clock. Things you do wt a passion.
-One person is confined to one purpose. Something you do & everyone notice is you, that is yr purpose.
-So, in a nutshell yr purpose is what you do best! It doesnt matter what is it!
-Now, knowing yr purpose is the first step to a long journey.
-Luke 19:11-17 God gave to each equal talents, either you use or lose them!

-For success strongly depends on how much the Word of God you know & put into use!
-Favour will locate you in line wt yr purpose.
-You need the favour of God to be successful as I am & my brother Strive Masiwa of Econet (# 1 Christ Embassy Church partner).
-As a Christian you should understand you were born excellent & mediocre is an insult to God. For mediocre means best of the worst, worst of the best!
-You should excel in everything you do, for you are a god.
-Dream big for you can only go as far you have been exposed, seen, admired, read, or dreamt.
-Favour will always locate you if you are a child of God & mk you someone out of no one.
-Say to yr neighbor look at me now carefully for the next time you would want to see me you have to go through a lot of people!
“SEE YOU AT THE TOP FOR THE BOTTOM IS CROWDED!”
Those were mouthwatering words from a great business tycoon!
