What Is Your Purpose?
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. – 1 Peter 2:9 (NIV).
From the very beginning of our lives, in fact before we were even born, before the foundations of the world, God knew you. God knew what you would look like. God knew what you would say, how you would react, in any situation. And yet He chose you for a special purpose in His plan.
We are hardwired to do our assignment so much that people are looking for purpose, for significance in work, in church, with their families. We cannot find our purpose, the plan, for our lives in any other place but at the feet of Jesus.
The more time we spend, communing with Him, the more He will reveal our specific role in helping to bring people out of darkness into His marvelous light.
