“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” — Jeremiah 29:11
Purpose isn’t about becoming something new and dreaming up something new for your life. Purpose is the process of uncovering who God has already called and created you to be. Purpose is about uncovering God’s original intent for your life. You were made by a God who has purpose and intent for every creation. God gives us purpose, but it’s our job to participate and engage in his purpose for our lives. When we say yes and put our faith in Jesus we begin the process to finding our purpose. We begin a relationship with our creator. After, we start the process of getting more of God’s heart so we can understand his plan for our lives.
Purpose is different than a position. Some people think purpose is a destination or a position to obtain. If only I can… Once I get… Things and positions will never fill the void of living out your purpose in life.
Rick Warren says the two most important days in your life are when you are born and when you understand why you are born.
Until we are dead, God won’t be done revealing more of himself to us. Our purpose is a process. It’s ongoing. As you engage in this process, understand you can live on purpose today. You don’t have to wait for some miraculous sign from God. As you get clarity on why God created you, you’ll feel God’s joy and peace as you walk in purpose.
Ask God to show you more of your purpose today. Ask a friend, “How would you describe God’s purpose for my life?”
