Until purpose is discovered, existence has no meaning for purpose is the source of fulfilment – Dr. Myles Munroe.
But indeed for this purpose I have raised you up, that I may show My power in you, and that My name may be declared in all the earth. (Exodus 9:16) NKJV
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. (Ephesians 2:10) NKJV
Many people are busy and active, going on with their day to day life, but deep within them, they are totally worn out and tired. While some are confused, bored and frustrated, others are depressed, empty and aimless. They know for sure they are not happy and what they do does not give them the fulfilment and satisfaction they long for. They know that their lives are a lie and that something vital in their lives is lacking. They live in constant conflicts and life within them is nonexistent, but what really is lacking?
Everyone who has ever invented something did so with a specific reason in mind. He invented whatever he invented to fulfil a specific purpose. This means that there is a purpose for everything and everyone that exists on earth.
Purpose is the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists.
God created each one of us to accomplish a divine purpose. He designed each one of us in a unique way and equipped us with different gifts and talents to accomplish a specific purpose.
Life is not about what we see, but what lies within us. When you know who you are and why you exist, and live towards fulfilling it, you will experience a much more fulfilling, satisfying and a happy life. According to Dr. Myles Munroe, no amount of accomplishments can replace the power and the motivation of finding your own special niche and working towards your dreams. God never created you to do everything, you have a special niche. No matter how much you achieve or accomplish in this world, it will all be meaningless if it will cost you your personal gratification and well being.
Everything and everyone has a purpose and if one fails to discover it, life becomes an experiment and a trial and error method for them. There is something that God wants you to do and you are the only one equipped with the necessary gifts, talents and resources to do it. You are fully equipped and you have the capability and capacity to accomplish your divine purpose in life. The only reason why you are in existence today is because you have a purpose in life.
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5
You have no business comparing yourself with other people or trying to remake yourself in the image of someone you admire. You are unique and exactly how God wanted you to be. It’s very easy to get caught up in the world and our own self fulfilling fleshly desires which in turn leads us to abandon our original God ordained purpose. And when this happens, struggles take over our lives. It is your individual responsibility to seek to know your purpose in life.
… for in Him we live and move and have our being, ~ Acts 17:28a
Before you were formed, you had your existence in God and only He can define your purpose. Finding your purpose therefore, is not a suggested good idea, it is a must. Living and fulfilling it must be your primary mission in life. Your fulfilment, satisfaction and peace of mind are all tied to that particular purpose. There is some level of grace you will not have until you begin to fulfill your purpose in life. Your pathway to abundance is a function of fulfilling your purpose at the highest level of performance. There is some level of achievement and success you can never have until you start living your purpose.
Discovering your purpose will help you to set goals and have a correct vision for your life. You cannot keep on living in ignorance, know the real reason for your existence, seek God to help you understand why you are here and let Him give you the right direction concerning your life.
