Have you ever been so preoccupied that you've wondered, 'Where has the day gone?' It's one thing to lose track of an entire day, but what about your whole life? That's going to be the experience of some Christians when they step into Heaven and give CHRIST an account of how they spent their time. If they've simply drifted through life, they will wonder,'Where did my life go?
A salvation decision isn't the end goal for a beleiver. GOD has a specific plan and purpose for each of His children. Sometimes it's a lifelong calling in an area of service, but it could also be a specific task He has for you at particular time in your life. The only way you'll fulfill GOD's purposes is by setting goals that align with His will and taking specific steps to achieve them.
Paul was an effective servant of CHRIST because he followed the Spirit's guidance, relied upon divine strength, and actively set goals to fulfill his calling as an apostle. He didn't let fears, doubt or hardships keep him from accomplishing GOD's will. How about you? Have you been living purposely for the LORD, or are you seeking your own goals? You may be very successful in the world, but from the LORD's perspective, spiritual passivity always results in a squandered life.
Perhaps GOD has given you a passion or interest that simply needs cultivating. Or maybe you feel a prompting but hesitate because the task seems beyond your ability. Seek GOD's will, and He'll guide you into it. At times this may feel uncomfortable, but you'll never regret taking on the challenge.
If one is living with the power of the Holy Spirit and in the name of Jesus he has been given a purpose by Abba Father. Divine power of the Holy Spirit gives us authority to carry out God's plan. Divine power gives us the power to glorify Abba Father and to demonstrate reform in our lives. Let the Holy Spirit be in control of your life and God's will will be done and not ours.
