In this teleseminar bible teaching series, Audrey Wyatt is our speaker and she helps us to find our connection with the Lord in finding our life purpose.

In this episode, Audrey walks us through the idea of finding our purpose as women of God.
God Still speaks
Audrey shares with us about ways we pursue our purpose for the Lord. Sometimes we go about it the wrong way, we pursue an idea, and we may fail. But in order to fulfill our purpose, we must be able to hear Him when He calls us.
God speaks through the written Word, the spoken Word, and the prophetic Word.
Ezra 7:10How do we know when God is speaking? There were times when God rarely spoke:
1 Samuel 3:1. The word of the Lord was precious in those days. There was no one listening, so the Lord wasn’t speaking. God did not speak for 400 years between the Old and New Testaments.
Thankfully God is still speaking to us today!
Some points that Audrey would like for us to keep in mind when considering life purpose:
- There are three types of words: the written word, spoken word, and prophetic word.
- Hebrews 1: 1-2.
- “Peace is the potting soil of revelation.”
- Jesus, the prophet, is speaking to us today.
- The Lord “sustains what He ordains”.
A life purpose declaration to write and speak:
Prophesy to my heart, Lord Jesus.
Keep in mind that God unfolds His word for our lives.
Psalm 119:130. In order to get the settled Word from Heaven revealed to us on earth we must have:
- Faith (Hebrews 11:6)
- We must be a friend to Jesus (John 15:15). Cultivate your prayer life, worship the Lord, and walk closely with Him. God will teach you and connect with you right where you are in your homeschooling and in your everyday tasks.
- Spirit of wisdom and revelation (Ephesians 1:17-18).
We touched briefly on the analogy of pregnancy in spirituality.
What to determine when you are “pregnant with your purpose”.
- How far along am I?
- What am I “carrying” for the Lord?
- Am I healthy? Do I receive regular checkups?
- How much do I weigh?
