What do you think of when you hear the word “PURPOSE”
Purpose is defined as the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists.
Now, what’s the first thought that comes to your mind when you think of your Purpose? Does your Initial thought come in the form of a question? Does your initial thought provoke uneasy feelings?
Think about it for a moment. Do you know why you were created? Do you know your purpose?
God has a purpose for all of us! He had a specific purpose in mind when He created us. The scripture says, For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.(Ephesians 2:10)
Three things are clear in this scripture. 1. We are created as the workmanship of God, 2. We are Created for Good Works and 3. It was ordained that we should walk in them before we were created.
Many people live without purpose or lack discovery of their purpose because they don’t have a relationship with the One who created them.
Mark Twain wrote, “The two most important days in the life are the day you are born and the day you discover why.”
Our purpose is not something in life we decide to do, rather it is chosen by God. I can’t tell how much time and opportunity I have squandered doing things I thought were my destined future. I soon discovered that although I looked at them as wasted time and miss opportunities, I am certain that all them have been connected to ultimately guide me to my God-given Purpose.
