Living A Life Of Purpose……


image

We are created in God’s image and likeness, but most importantly for a  relationship with him. Being in that relationship is the only thing that will ultimately satisfy our souls. But it’s so sad that most people don’t think nor believe their satisfaction in life will come from God. They rather choose to believe it’s in their career, their marriage, their children, their spouses, their businesses, their relationship, their religion, ect.

Until we come to know God, we would have many wonderful experiences, but we will never be fulfilled much less fulfilling our Purpose for life. We will end up been used for some noble purposes, but not the one we were ultimately designed for, not the one through which we will find the most fulfillment. 

Very often I ask myself these questions, what is my purpose here on earth, why was I created?, Why didn’t my mother choose to abort me, when I was just heamorrage?, What’s the will of God for my life?, Why is it important for me to consult God before making that decision or taking that step?, How do I live and not just exist?, How do I fulfil my purpose for life? I ask these questions so I don’t loose focus or get it wrong. I believe one mistake can be disastrous, we may choose to forget after forgiving ourselves but the scars will constantly be a reminder. So, I want to always get it right.

A relationship with God is the only thing that will quench our soul’s longing. Jesus Christ said in John 6:35, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.” Until we come to know God, we will be hungry and thirsty in life. We will try to “eat” and “drink” all kinds of things to satisfy our hunger and thirst, but yet they will remain.

in Ephesians 2:10 the apostle Paul says, “We are God’s handi­work, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” God calls you to a purpose—to do good works—“tailor-made” just for you. And He gifts you with all you need to accom­plish that purpose. God doesn’t play games with our lives. He wants us to reach out full potential, and He provides the means for us to discover how and that is through “His Word”. He  says, “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you”-Psalm 32:8

If you are unclear about God’s specific purpose for your life, spend ample time in this first month of the New Year asking Him to reveal His plans for you. Write your answers to these questions: What is your passion? What has brought you great joy in your work? How could you best serve others by fully using your God-given gifts, talents, and skills?

Ask God to prepare you to fulfill the purpose to which He has called you. Your outlook on life is sure to soar as you achieve the unique purpose God has set for you. And as you pray, these additional steps will help you identify your specific God-given purpose:

  1. Ask God to help you discover his universal will for you
  2. Ask God to show you his specific will for your life
            
        The greatest tragedy in life is not death, but living a life without Purpose.-Myles Munroe…,.God bless you.

      1. That is such a gracious and positive reply Whitney. I know many Christian folk who would have started preaching about Jesus being the only way etc. etc. Thank you.

        1. Thank you Denzil for your kind words. Am glad you stopped by. I hope I get to see more of your comments. But I must let you know that I love the Lord Jesus Christ and it is my earnest heart desire that everyone comes to the knowledge of Him at the appointed time.

          1. We think alike Whitney, although I may have a slightly broader view on how to come to the knowledge of Him. Thanks for replying to my comment! I look forward to reading more of your posts. You have a very interesting and helpful blog, with well written articles.

              1. Sure. For me, Jesus being the way, the truth and the life refers to his radically inclusive love for everyone, particularly the outsider and those on the fringes; his compassion; his forgiveness. And I tend to see something of that, and therefore of God, in other religions too. And I feel more comfortable these days with certain elements of mystery, doubt, ambiguity, and questioning. As a believer in the sacred in every person, I can easily believe that the spirit of God lives in people who don’t necessarily confess Christ.

              2. Thank you Denzil for sharing with me and everyone else your own opinion. I want to add by saying God is God to everyone but a father to few. John 1:12 says “To them that believe, he has given them the power to become sons and daughters of God. If you don’t believe in God nor in his son Jesus Christ, he can’t be a father to you but he will be God to you. The spirit of has been poured out on all flesh because Jesus Christ died for all men but the spirit of God only functions when you believe and accept what Jesus has done. You rightly said “Jesus Christ is the way, the truth and the life and no one comes to the father( God) except through Him. Once again Denzil it’s so thoughtful of you to share. I look forward to sharing more ideas with you. Have a blessed day.
