Do you know why you are here? In order for you to live a successful life, it is important that you know the purpose for your life. And the only way you can know the purpose for your life is through the Word of God and a relationship with Him.
CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING
Anything that does not fulfill its purpose is a failure, no matter what it is. If you don’t find the purpose for your life, you will be a failure.
You must find your purpose in life so you don’t succeed at the wrong thing. You will never be fulfilled in your heart or in your life if you don’t find your purpose. Knowing the purpose for your life is important to your success.
You are successful when you do that for which God created you. Purpose determines “priority”. Knowing your purpose will determine your priorities. And, unless you know your purpose, you won’t have guidance for your life.
GOD KNOWS EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU!
God Knows Your Character:
Psalm 139:1 (NIV) says “You have searched me, Lord, and you know me.”
God Knows Your Thoughts:
Psalm 139:2 (NIV) says “You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.” God knows what you are thinking every moment. He knows what you are thinking right now!
God Knows Your Conduct:
Psalm 139:3 (NIV) says “You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways.” There is no move that you can make that God doesn’t see.
God Knows Your Conversations:
Psalm 139:4 (NIV) says “Before a word is on my tongue you, Lord, know it completely.” If only half of what people said each day was left unsaid, this world would be a much better place.
God knows every thought, every prayer, every concern, every tear, every hair on your head. God knows everything about you.
God Is Always With You:
Psalm 139:5-6 (NIV) says “You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.
Psalm 139:7-8 (NIV) says “Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.”
Jeremiah 23:24 (NIV) says “Who can hide in secret places so that I cannot see them?” declares the Lord. ‘Do not I fill heaven and earth?”
declares the Lord.’”
declares the Lord.’”
Distance Doesn’t Hide You From God:
Psalm 139:9-10 (NIV) says “If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.”
You can never be in a place where you can escape from God. When you finish running from God, He will already be there waiting for you.
Darkness Doesn’t Hide You From God:
Psalm 139:11-12 (NIV) says “If I say, “’Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,’ even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.”
Again, God knows all about you. You cannot outrun, outwit, or outdistance God!
GOD HAS A WONDERFUL PURPOSE FOR YOU!
You were not an accident. God formed you in your mother’s womb. You are special!
Psalm 139:13-16 (NIV) says “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”
Psalm 139:17-18 (NIV) says “How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand—when I awake, I am still with you.”
WHAT IS YOUR PURPOSE?
God loves you and He wants you to live a satisfying, productive and rewarding life!
If you are dissatisfied with your life, this might just be God trying to show you your purpose that you are not fulfilling.
CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING
What are the things you care most about? What are your God given strengths and talents? What is the one thing that you do better than others? What are your main interests? What are you passionate about? Who are the people that you admire? What matters most to you? Do you have positive or negative emotions? Make a detailed list. The answers to these questions can clue you in to your God given purpose.
Pray and ask God (the only one who really knows you) to show you the things that truly move you. Be patient and wait for God to answer your prayer. When you receive your answer, be obedient to do what God has revealed to you. And remember, God wants you to discover His purpose for you more than you do.
Finally, consider that your purpose is not just about you; it’s about what God wants to do through you for the good of others. Therefore, if you ignore your dissatisfaction, your talents and gifts, and your passions, you are not only betraying yourself, but you are betraying God; because He has called you to a purpose and wants you to walk in it — for others and for your own joy.
Also consider that since God has called you, He is completely able to reveal your purpose to you, and He will as you diligently seek Him.
Hebrews 11:6 (NIV) says “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.”
GOD WANTS YOU SAVED!
In the long run, even if you do learn and fulfill your purpose, what good is that if you are not saved. To learn more about salvation, read “God’s Free Gift”.
