How to find God’s purpose for you

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.

Proverbs 3:5-6

When Sujo John and his wife moved to the United States from India in February 2001, things were looking great. He lived in New York City, and got a well-paying job on the 81st floor of One World Trade Center. God was at work in Sujo’s life, and at 8:11 a.m. on September 11th, 2001, he wrote an email to a friend saying, “I know I have the call of God.”

The first plane hit just a few floors above Sujo’s office at 8:46 a.m. His office caught fire, and it was difficult to see where he was going. By God’s grace, he made it to the stairs, walked down, and made it out of the building just minutes before the collapse of Tower 2.

Today, Sujo has a new purpose in life. He said in an interview with CBN, “If the terrorists are willing to die for the cause they believe in, how guilty am I for not living for the greatest cause ever—the cause of Jesus Christ?” Today, Sujo has a platform to preach the gospel all over the world because of his experiences that day.

If people are willing to die for the cause of hatred, how much more should we as Christians be willing to live for the cause of Christ? Remember that truth today, and commit yourself fully to God’s plans and purposes for you!
