A Daily Purpose

Bible Study & Devotional Day 105

Written By Torrie Slaughter

Guiding Scripture:‘For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless. ‘ Psalms 84:11

‘The righteous hate what is false, but the wicked make themselves a stench and disgrace themselves. ‘ Proverbs 13:5

🔴 Undone

One conviction the Holy Spirit planted in me was to solve a different problem. Once I began this ministry, I knew I would encounter spiritual and emotional challenges. Preparing with God each day and putting on my armor is how I depend on His strength. We can do our part, receive enough for the day, and move strategically with focused intention.

To help others thrive in their unique gifts would mean they could not be intimidated or offended by my behavior. Well, that was a hefty burden to carry and quickly exhausted my strength. I grew bitter and tired of creatively voicing concerns while attempting to implement effective strategies.


AND THEN:


The Lord opened my eyes and heart to understand that I was fighting against the flesh, not the principalities who were at work. Those who refused to obey God because of their scarcity mindset. (Ephesians 2:2)

To solve a different problem means following God’s instruction leaving nothing undone. (Joshua 11:15) While I wait for my subsequent assignments, the Lord softened my heart to be present. Those who understand His will for their lives comprehend how God works through everyone.

The battles we fight now will bring peace later.

While Joshua, the Israelites leader, followed Moses’s example of taking direction from the Lord, we can also prosper His kingdom. Neither of these Old Testament leaders did everything perfectly and invited destruction onto the nation. But God has a plan and knows our hearts. Don’t be afraid to do exactly as the Lord leads (leave nothing undone). The outcome will bring peace to prepare you for the next battle. (Joshua 11:23) Let the land of your mind rest.

A Daily Purpose

Bible Study & Devotional Day 65

Written By Torrie Slaughter

🔴 A Blessed Home

Numbers 6:22-27 The Lord said to Moses, 23 “Tell Aaron and his sons, ‘This is how you are to bless the Israelites. Say to them:
24 “The Lord bless you and keep you;
25 the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you;
26 the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.”‘
27 “So they will put my name on the Israelites, and I will bless them.

There are several songs that I love to sing and permeate my space. The Blessing is one of them. If you haven’t heard this incredible song by Kari Jobe and Cody Carnes, I highly recommend looking it up on YouTube.


While the Lord was instructing Moses on setting up the tabernacle, consecrating the people, and bringing an offering, I asked: what I could learn? How is my posture in worship? That is a question for all who claim that Jesus Christ is Lord.

All too often, there is a disconnect between the heart and the mind. How do we solve the problem of communication with our Lord? We pray! We talk to God and listen for His guidance.

About 2020


The last year has brought tremendous change for everyone. We were all affected in some way by the pandemic. God wanted us to deliver our offerings before Him so that we could be of more excellent service to His people.


Serve Him with gladness. We need not gain permission from other humans to give our best to our God. That is an attack of the enemy and an explicit scheme to create division. If we are holy and set apart, we ought to bless even our enemies and stand aside to let the Lord deal with their transgressions.

Numbers chapter 7 lists the offerings made by the head of each tribe. It wasn’t a competition but a beautiful housewarming gift for Israel’s people to the Lord Almighty. In every house of worship we enter into; we should give our best and not worry about attacks from the enemy (hearts of the pagans). Your gifts are needed, and Jesus wants you to sing praise and be a joyful addition to the body of Christ.
May He bless us as we transform the way we bring others to His house of worship.

~Torrie Slaughter

A Word From the Host

“I am honored to share my story with you as these weekly videos continue. Talking about my past transgressions and witnessing to God’s healing and deliverance is therapeutic for me. 

This is my journey through pain, unforgiveness, anger, pride, arrogance, and fear. I believe the difficult situations I grew through helped me develop this strategy I am sharing with you. I continue to learn and become stronger in my faith. The relationship God sought to cultivate with me is transcendent. 

My Past:

→When I was 25 years old, my outer appearance defined me. I struggled with my identity because the purpose of life was abandoned to a rebellious worldly ambition. I didn’t know who I was. It took ten years before I woke up to the reality that I was dead in life. No matter the number of good deeds I performed, nothing would gain me any satisfaction until I surrendered to God. I was involved in a culture of self-deprecating, self-consuming, and irrational behavior. I repressed the feelings of anger and fear; that led to rebellious acts against God. With no direction or significance, I went on a dead-end journey to seek meaning in a life created by my circumstances.

 →It is now my passion to warn others against the travails of this world, and the proverbial carrots dangled overhead. Through prayer, meditation, education, and overall a real relationship with God, I offer a ministry dedicated to helping others reclaim their inheritance.

*REWIND* Weaponized Arrogance Steps to Dismantle Pridefulness

Mentoring NOTES:
👋 Hello, Person of Purpose! 

Weaponized Arrogance Steps to Dismantle Pridefulness first aired in July 2020. Thank you for listening, sharing, and engaging with us. Please continue to do your work while we are on break.  

www.OurGivenPurpose.com

 

🟥 Glossary:

Clarify -to make me less confused.

Organize– arrange into a structured order

Prepare–  ready for use or consideration.

 

🟥 The Message:

Weaponized Arrogance! Steps to Dismantle Pridefulness. We will C.O.P. our purpose today by breaking down this session into three strategic mental moves. The goal is to teach applicable techniques to help you become more aware of how you use arrogance as a weapon to bring others into submission. 

Clarify.Organize.Prepare.

Action Step One: Action Step One: Identify the Artillery! To dismantle or unarm something you must know its point of origin. What artillery are you using to get the things you want? Where are the wires that need to be cut in your arrogant thinking? 

Action Step Two: Take Responsibility for Your Attitude. Having structure helps you practice self-control. Bringing our mind into control to be used wisely and with discernment will help us pivot if we are shooting our arrogance off in a barrel. 

Action Step Three: Prepare with the Word of God! People of God must check motives very carefully. As human beings ready for justice, seeking solutions, and desiring the promise of God’s eternity in the heavenly realm. We have internal work to do.
