Growing from this Place Subject: Light in my purpose

In this week’s edition of Growing from this Place Bible Study, Pastor Jonathan McKnight takes a look at understanding the importance of what it means to maintain your light while in the midst of the purpose that God has for you life. Here the key points that Pastor McKnight covers in this week’s study:

  • Oftentimes there are gloomy situations that arise that can cause us to become stagnant and complacent because we don’t know what God is doing in our lives.
  • We tend to focus on things that hasn’t worked in our lives when we don’t know what God is doing.
  • You must realize that God has purpose for you even when it seems dim and when it appears that your enemies are gaining ground.
  • Adversity is a part of your divine season.
  • Having enemies is part of the territory and a part of your journey when it comes to fulfilling your purpose in God.
  • It is important to understand the DNA of who you are when you are in certain dark or otherwise, challenging environments in your life and to not become a product of those environments.


  • Understanding who you are in God and you will never understand who you are until you understand who God is.
  • Life is too short to participate in the darkness of purpose.
  • You cannot deal with too many unnecessary pitstops in your life.
  • One of the greatest tools (sensors) of life is that you can’t have light with a dark heart.
  • It is crucial to protect your heart from contamination because where there is unforgiveness, hatred, jealousy and anger in your heart, you are dimming your light.
  • You must be careful to not give power to things that don’t add light.
  • The Lord is your light when you don’t where you going or where He’s taking you.
  • If you keep the Lord in your purpose, He becomes the light of your purpose.
  • God will often allow the wicked to be a part of your purpose.
  • You can’t allow your enemies to cause darkness to enter in your heart and thereby dim your light and get you out of focus in your purpose.
  • When allow your enemy to waist your time you are not being spiritually mature.
