PURPOSE- We Were Intentionally Created for A Purpose
Often, we believe that we are born, go through mistakes, struggles and harm in our lives and then look for a purpose to make our lives make sense. God’s purpose in and for our lives is the total opposite.
Before each of us took our first breath, God had a specific purpose and plan that He desired to accomplish. The purpose and plan came FIRST. He then created each of us for the specific purpose He desired to fulfill, knowing that a specific plan would need to take place in each of our lives to bring HIS purpose into fruition. Purpose is not created for us, we were created for a specific purpose that only we can individually fill because of the story God planned through our lives.
So for your life, every parent, friend, circumstance, situation, marriage, divorce, heartache, past, harm done, mistake, suffering, confusion, and struggle was ALLOWED by God as part of His plan to fulfill His purpose in, through and for us lives. The events that take place through our stories (positive and negative) are all a part of the plan in preparing and maturing us for our purpose.
There is nothing we can do to prevent or mess up the purpose in and for our lives. Further, there is nothing we can do to force His purpose in and for our lives. In some cases, a person’s purpose will conclude with their death. We cannot see our purpose because it is experienced and ultimately known only to the person. Our purpose is the reason we achieve a goal, and it cannot be measured. Our purpose gives meaning to our lives and allows us to feel as though we matter and have worth.
Think about that question…..more to come later today.
Be encouraged, it’s a journey not a destination.
