BORN fOR A PURPOSE
Memorise: But ye are a chosen
generation,a royal priesthood,an
holy nation, a peculiar people; that
ye should shew forth the praises of
Him who hath called you out of
darkness into his marvelous light:
1Peter 2:9
Read: Jeremiah 1:4-5
One of the things you must
endeavour to know is God’s
purpose for your life. You were born
for a purpose. You are not an
accident. You are a product of divine
wisdon, knowledge &
understanding. The Almighty God
does nothing arbitrarily. In
everything He does, He is known for
clear cut purposes. He knows where
He is heading before He sets out on
any course. Even for those things or
people you think are bad, there is a
purpose they serve in the circle of
life. Each purpose of God is known to
Him from the beginning. This is
revealed in Acts 15:18,
“Known unto God are all his works
from the beginning of the world”
God’s purpose are known to Him.
This is so comforting for us to know.
We have issues with God & with
ourselves because we don’t know
what He knows about us. Another
reason we have issues is that we
don’t make out enough time to
seek His purpose for our lives. Since
the fall of man, an inclination
towards self-rule has been a part of
every natural man. We rely on our
human assessment & understanding
of ourselves to
determine what we think should be
the purpose of our existence. Not
seeking God’s purpose & self
reliance are traits that hinder man
from the glorious purpose for
which God created him. This was not
the case with Joseph; he knew he
was not going to end up being the
chief of slaves in Portiphar’s house;
hence he refused to be the
“favourite” of the madam of the
house(Gen 39:8-9). Later on in
life, when his brethren began to
exercise fears of retaliation, Joseph
revealed his knowledge of the
purpose of God for his life by
saying: “…Fear not: for am I in the
place of God? But as for you, ye
thought evil against me; but God
meant it unto good, to bring to pass,
as it is this day, to save much people
alive.” Genesis 50:19-20
Everyone in the world came for a
purpose. From what God told
Jeremiah, we see that His purpose
for us is not an after-thought. He
had thought out His purpose for each
of us before ever creating us. It also
tells us that even though He has all
the power, wisdom, knowledge &
understanding to do anything, He
does nothing without a purpose.
There is a purpose attached to your
life; strive to discover it from today.
PRaYER POINT
Father, I thank you for your purpose
concerning my life. Please give me a
revelation of your purpose for my life
in the Name of Jesus.
