What’s Your Purpose?

Did you know that you were created for a purpose? It’s true. As Christians, God has a mission for each of us to fulfil. One that He specifically designed for us and only we can complete.

It doesn’t matter how unequipped you feel, God will prepare you for your mission. He will never send you out alone. He is always with you.

A few years back, Pastor Rick Warren wrote a book entitled, A Purpose Driven Life. In the book, Warren lists 5 purposes of The Purpose Driven Life.

Purpose #1: You Were Planned for God’s Pleasure (Christian Worship) Purpose #2: You Were Formed for God’s Family (Christian Church) Purpose #3: You Were Created to Become Like Christ (Discipleship) Purpose #4: You Were Shaped for Serving God (Christian Ministry)

But what happens if you aren’t certain what your God-purpose is? Well, there are many ways to help you discover your purpose.  

Pray. Ask God to show you what He wants you to do for Him. Communication with God is key to the Christian life and to finding out your purpose.  

Dig into His word. Psalm 119:105 says, Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. The Bible is filled with answers.

Seek out Godly people to give you guidance. Proverbs 11:14 tells us, Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety. Choosing wise council to pray with us and give us advice is important.   

Sometimes, though, it is necessary to get alone with God and simply wait for His answer. God wants to guide us in every aspect of our lives, but sometimes all the noise surrounding us in our business lives makes it hard to hear His voice.

And when you have your answer? Trust God. He will put you where He wants you to be. Where you are needed. Where your purpose truly is.

All the best…
