I recently read that one in five people today struggles with depression, often rooted in feeling purposeless. In searching for purpose, you may seek what you believe is your heart’s desire. The things and places you believe or society leads you to believe is your life purpose. I wonder when it can’t be found, if one will surrender to the thought that they may be searching in the wrong places.
The amazing news is that every person on this planet has a specific purpose to fulfill. The key is finding it by searching in the right place. Have you ever uttered these words: What is my purpose in life and how do I find it? I recalled asking this question and the answer I got was this: “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Yes, Jeremiah 29:11. Light bulbs went off...go to the source for the answer.
Turn to your higher source, the Creator, for your answer. But first, allow the creator to transform your thinking to better understand your purpose and his will for you. I can almost guarantee, it will not align with what the world tells you and sometimes may surprise you that your heart deceived you.
Without a life purpose as the compass to guide you, your goals and action plans may not ultimately fulfill you. I encourage you to find your purpose, live it, then lead it! Let’s not cheat the world of your gift and your light.
Today’s verse is a reminder, “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” It may surprise you, once you are operating in your purpose, it may not feel like work. I encourage you to read 2 Timothy 3 in it’s entirety.
Thank you for the reminder that you created my purpose. To seek you and your plans for me then I will find my purpose. I pray that all your children remember that you have the blueprint for their life. To seek you, allow you to transform their minds and there purpose will be found. That your scriptures is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God maybe thoroughly equipped for every good work. I ask this in your son Jesus’ name. Amen!
