“We All Need A Purpose” note by me.
–Note: This was originally posted as a comment on a social media site but I’m sharing it here for the benefit of all who read it and for God’s glory.–
The need to find purpose is placed in every person by God so we would not be content with mere existence but strive to find purpose for which we were created.
We’re made in the image of God and it should be obvious that God is not one merely existing eternally but does as He pleases and follows His purpose and we being His creation must find our purpose and thus reflect part of what He does, in the world.
Living and dying with a purpose separates us from mere animals/beasts and from those who are just existing without real purpose, just wasting the days God gave,
waiting for nothing in particular, existing for the sake of existing and perhaps hoping things will change and purpose will come to them by luck or whatever, but that’s not how it works.
Sitting around waiting for purpose to pop into your mind won’t get you closer to having a purpose. It requires asking, searching, knocking; effort and diligence, resolve and determination. Sloth and indifference don’t produce diligence and purpose.
In God each can find their purpose, to live and not just exist; to live for God and others and not for selfish pleasures and gain; to make a positive impact in the world; to leave behind a legacy and not be forgotten as another merely-existing human.
If we don’t believe God can give us purpose; if we don’t believe He can reveal it to us or already has revealed it, then we simply won’t find it or discover it because we refuse to look for it at the source so our efforts will prove futile.
If you think you can find your purpose without God, apart from God, you’ll be very disappointed soon enough to discover that you can’t and won’t because all things
of importance, of substance, of worth and use, all such things come from God Almighty, not from the Devil or the world (world system) or any of the religions out
We all need a purpose and God is willing to reveal it. All who are tired of merely existing can come to Him and receive purpose, the fire of life that burns within, the point of living that doesn’t disappoint, a hope that doesn’t burn up and out, a light that shines in the darkest nights of our lives, a reason for our living that is based on what God has said and revealed in His Word.
We can all find purpose, we all need to find purpose; we’re not here to exist, we’re here to live, to be, to do, to love, to help, to obey the will of God and grow daily
into Christ-likeness, daily renewing our minds by the Word of God, becoming more and more like the person God created us to be and wants us each to be.
