Sometimes we hear the question, “What is the purpose of my life?” This is a tough question, right? Does anyone here want to guess?
Purpose can simply mean your reason for doing something, or even deeper, the reason that you exist.
Remember our first truth? You were made on purpose for a purpose.
God’s second X and O in His game plan focuses on purpose!
When an architect works, he or she plans out the structure that will be built. There’s purpose behind each section. If it were all random work, the structure would fail.
We are not here by some accident or coincidence. Our lives are purposeful and intentionally designed by God. God has a purpose for creating and designing us, a purpose that will not fail.
The Bible tell us, “You can make many plans, but the Lord’s purpose will prevail.” – Proverbs 19:21
We are His masterpiece and God has planned for us to purposefully do good works. When we give our lives to Christ and choose to live for Him, we take on His characteristics. God calls us to love others, give generously, help others, be kind and many other ways we can show Jesus to others. We see this in Ephesians 2:10, “For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.”
When we realize we are here for a purpose, and follow this purpose and God’s plan for us, we have joy. Let’s read Romans 15:13 together:
“I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.” – Romans 15:13
As we continue to practice today, remember that God made you for a purpose! And this purpose has already been planned by God for you to fulfill. We just have to obey Him and His Word!
“Dear God, thank You for making me on purpose for a purpose. I know I am Your masterpiece and You have planned for me to do good works. I pray I continue to find joy in doing Your plan for me. Amen.”
