So, What's the Big Deal about Purpose?

So many times we wonder through life with a lack of direction and focus because we are unsure of what direction our lives should be going. With this lack of direction, we attempt to make decisions that hopefully will lead us down a path of success. But, in all actuality we really don’t know what we should be doing.Have you ever wondered seemingly aimlessly and wished you had some type of direction regarding your future and the decisions you are making to get you there? I have!

When we are faced with these life altering questions it is vitally important that we go back to understanding our purpose. But, in order to know the purpose of something you must get to know its creator.  Thus, in order for us to gain direction regarding the trajectory of our path, we must discover God’s desires regarding the reason He created us.

Proverbs 16:25 says “ There is a way that seems right to a man and appears straight before him, but at the end of it are the ways of death”.(Amplified version)

But in John 10:10 Jesus says that He came so that we may have life and have it more abundantly.

In order to experience this amazing life Jesus died for us to live, we must take time to discover who God created us to be and then choose to be obedient as He directs.

But, walking in purpose is a choice!

You were created with specific, unique gifts and talents that highlight your specific purpose. These gifts were meant to be used to accomplish God’s overall purpose of bringing salvation to the world. He gave you gifts but you must choose to give them back to Him by living a life yielded to His direction. God needs you to make a choice to use your gifts for His plans!

Choose to walk in purpose!
