What is your purpose here on earth?
If I asked you that question, would you be able to give me a clear answer?
If you have asked yourself the above question, I want to let you know that, you are not the only one. I also want to tell you that your life is not a coincidence.
Psalm 139 states that your very being was formed by God. He gave you your personality, your talents, desires, strengths and weaknesses. Where you live and your circumstances are all in his perfect plan for you. He has blessed each one with a specific purpose and everything he has given to you is to fulfil that purpose.
Firstly, as Christians we have a common purpose, that is to worship God, obey God and to make disciples( The great commission ). Making disciples is our first call. We do this through our actions and belief, by gathering the lost sheep and proclaiming the name of Jesus.- See Matthew 28:16-20
Secondly, God has blessed you and given you an ordained purpose and has an unstoppable plan for your life, that only you can fulfil. – see Jeremiah 29: 11
How do you know what your purpose is here on earth?
- Ask God, it is that simple.
- Draw close to God.
- Build a relationship with the Holy Spirit.
- Listen to the whispers in your life, the things that make you happy and that you are passionate about.
- Listen to the compliments you receive from others.
- Choose to commit to something you are passionate about.
We can ask God anything and he will surely answer us, in a unique way. He normally prepares us for our purpose and you will be surprised to know that all you have been through was to prepare you for who and what you are to be.
To truly discover our ordained purpose, we must communicate with God. We might have a plan, or a dream but our thoughts are not God’s and our plans are not God’s. – see Isaiah 55:8
Next week, I will be sharing some more on this topic.
