To listen to the blog post “7 Ways To Live A Purposed Driven Life ~ Success God’s Way” over reading it then click the play button below.
In this post, I am going to let you in on how to live a purposed driven life God’s way. There is success God’s way and there is success in the world’s way. I would MUCH MUCH rather do success in God’s way because you are pretty much guaranteeing your success.
The world’s way is fickle and no telling what you would have to do to get there. Before we continue let me tell you the difference between both. Be sure to check out my video below on how God wants you to prosper. Also, click here to subscribe to my YouTube Channel.
1. The purposed driven life ~ Success God’s way
- Will fulfill His purpose for your life and enrich the world around you in some way.
- Is mostly focusing on building his kingdom. Money and prosperity can come (see my blog here) but is not the primary focus of why God makes you successful but can be a result.
- Does NOT require any sort of manipulation, illegal activity, sleeping around, backstabbing or other ungodly behavior in order to get where you need to be.
- Enriches you as a person or refines your character for the better.

2. The purposed driven life ~ Success the world’s way
- Is often selfish, has selfish intentions, and only benefits one’s self and no one else.
- Can require that you backstab, sleep with people, lie, cheat, steal or do other behavior in order to get where you need to be.
- Can be illegal or any way that can make you money, if it is not morally right.
3. The purposed driven life ~ Biblical keys to success to keep in mind
The steps for success are not a hard concept to grasp but where most people fail is that they do not want to go through the steps. A lot of people want to come out on top and sadly most people are not willing to put in the work that it takes to get to the top. (Check out my blog here on why people fail). God’s way of success is to just not hand you your ideal life with no real work or anything required from you. It rarely works like that.
There are plenty of people who want to be successful and instead of going through the steps. They wish upon a star and have a little prayer and hope that it will all go away and that when they wake up tomorrow they will be living in their dream life.
Prayer does not work like that, God does not work like that, and success does not work like that. Success is rarely built overnight and behind every successful person is a lot of hard work and failures that they may have encountered along the way.
Also, check out my blog on hard work will pay off if you do it right. Behind every Christian successful person, they will tell you that they went through the same 3 steps before they actually became successful. It was because God was building their character which is an important thing to understand when it comes to doing success in God’s way. Also, check out my video down below for success tips according to the Bible.
4. The purposed driven life ~ You Must Be Pruned.
If you want to live a purposed driven life then you must be pruned. When I say pruning I am not talking about God taking you out into the garden and teaching you how to garden. Yes, pruning can be applied to plants but in this case, the pruning is going to be applied to you.
Pruning is when the dead leaves or weeds are pulled away from a plant so that the plant may grow. I am sure if the plant had feelings it would not be happy about someone cutting off a part of them. But little does the plant know that cutting away the dead stuff is actually helping it grow. Something to note about pruning is that it may hurt, you may not like it, but it is going to make you better in the end. (Also, check out the video by Joyce on pruning).
5. The Purposed Driven Life ~ Case in point: Me
There was a lot of dead stuff in me. I was fornicating, partying, going off on people, and just doing the MOST and being the type of person that GOD did not want me to be. But can you imagine if I was a Christian blogger and everything in my life was anything BUT Christian? Would you listen to me or even take me seriously?
Probably not. So God had to prune me to prepare me to become the type of person that I wanted to be. He had to convict and if need be massively change the way I did things even making it so that I did not want to have sex outside of marriage anymore (click here to read my blog on that).
No, I did not like it and there were times that I did not want to do it but when I did it only made me better. Because it is only through the pruning process, that God cuts out all the weeds so that a beautiful and renewed plant can grow. People who knew me a few years ago I am literally nowhere near the same version of myself. I hated the pruning process but now I am better, I am stronger, and I am way more successful. I may not have liked the process but the process made me better.
If you keep the dead stuff and ways in your life, like actual weeds, you will be unable to become successful.
He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. John 15:2-6
6. The Purposed Driven Life ~ You must learn to work.
Nothing worth wanting comes from free. Time, effort, and dedication are the prices for getting what you want (Click my blog here for more). So if you are just sitting there wishing, hoping, thinking, and praying that a million dollars will fall in your life and you will be successful, think again. God’s way is not just going to give you something for nothing. If God did that you would not appreciate what you have worked for. That is why so many lottery winners of millions of dollars end up broke.
Because they have not worked for it, they do not understand the value of it, and so they waste it. So when you work hard for something, even if it takes a long time, it makes you appreciate it that much more. And it makes you think twice before you do anything to lose it. So not only must you work hard to be successful, but put out good quality work in whatever you are trying to be successful in.
From everyone to whom much has been given, much will be required; and to whom they entrusted much, of him they will ask all the more. Luke 12:48
7. The Purposed Driven Life ~ Be Dedicated in The Small Stuff
I remember way back when when I first started blogging and I just could not wait to be successful. One day when I was working on my blog, a friend started telling me about her relationship problems and God told me to help her and pray for her. At the time I was working on my blog and I really did not feel like taking time out to talk to and help her. BUT that is when I was convicted.
At that point, God told me how could I help people on a massive level if I could not even help people where I was. How can you want more if you are not even faithful with what you do have? Whatever you want to do or however you want to be successful you need to be faithful and every level. How can God grow your business if you are mismanaging your money during the startup phase? How can God bring more people in your path to help you if you think you know everything and won’t accept anyone’s help now?
- “Don’t expect to just start at the top, it’s a climb, and at each stage, you need to work hard, be dedicated, and be faithful to the process to get higher and higher. “
“Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much. Luke 16:10
