Seek the Truth with all your heart.

We all need a purpose, and usually spend a lot of our life​​ wondering what our true purpose really is. ​​ Even if we don’t consciously think about it;​​ the lack of purpose, or not​​ knowing our purpose, remains​​ an unfilled hollow hovering in the background​​ of our​​ heart and​​ mind. ​​ Seeking GOD​​ for answers can reveal what we hunger to know, and fill the hollow.​​ 

GOD​​ has put a dream inside you. ​​ It’s yours and no one else’s, it declares your uniqueness, it holds your potential,​​ and​​ only you​​ can bring it into reality. ​​ GOD​​ has given you the duty and responsibility to fulfil it; but don’t forget to pray for HIS help. ​​​​ By all means listen to good advice, but do not be put off or discouraged by people who merely discourage and criticize. ​​ Stick to your​​ dream, your inclination, and GOD​​ given direction. ​​ Ask HIM to help reveal and clarify to you, your passion -​​ talent​​ -​​ gifting. ​​ 

Think of yourself in a way similar to a rubber band, which, irrespective of size, has​​ its own natural resting shape, your comfort zone. ​​​​ However its purpose is to perform -​​ fulfill​​ -​​ a function, and that requires it to be stretched, but only to its functional limit.​​ 

That​​ is how you could see yourself;​​ however, if you truly put your faith and trust in​​ GOD, HE​​ can enable you to go -​​ perform​​ -​​ beyond your natural limits.

It is a wonderful thing to recognize one’s purpose in life, to realize that GOD​​ has placed each one of us​​ here​​ on Earth at a particular time, in a​​ particular place, to fulfil HIS​​ will,​​ and be part of a plan​​ -​​ larger than ourselves​​ -​​ to accomplish HIS​​ purposes. ​​ ​​​​ We have been born​​ to accomplish the purpose of GOD​​ in the very place where​​ we live. ​​ Our lives are not cosmic accidents, or​​ the results of random chance. ​​ The greatest​​ joy is to know GOD and discover HIS purpose for our lives. ​​ HIS​​ purpose is always far more amazing than anything we can imagine.​​ 

If you have committed your life​​ to GOD, ask HIM to reveal HIS​​ purpose for you.

If you read​​ the book of​​ Esther in the Bible, and​​ can appreciate the circumstances that GOD used to​​ deliver​​ the Jews, you can also ask yourself, as Mordecai asked Esther, as to​​ what great purpose GOD​​ may have brought you to your present place, circumstance,​​ and​​ position in life.

Jeremiah 29:11-13 ​​​​ “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. ​​ Then you will call upon ME, and I will​​ listen to you. ​​ You will seek ME and find ME when you seek ME​​ with all your heart.”

Romans 8:28-30 ​​​​ ‘And we know that​​ ​​ in all things GOD​​ works for the good of those who love HIM, who have been called according to HIS purpose. ​​ For those GOD foreknew HE​​ also predestined to be​​ conformed to the likeness of HIS​​ Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brothers.​​ ​​ And those HE predestined, HE also called, those HE called, HE also justified; those HE justified, HE​​ also glorified.’

Ephesians 1:4-8 ​​​​ ‘For HE chose us in HIM​​ before the creation of the world​​ to be holy and blameless in HIS​​ sight.​​ ​​ In love HE​​ predestined​​ us to be adopted as HIS​​ sons (children) through Jesus Christ, in accordance with HIS​​ pleasure and will, to the praise of HIS glorious grace, which HE​​ has freely given us in the One HE loves. ​​ In Him​​ we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of GOD’S grace that HE​​ lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding.’ ​​ 

Ephesians 2:10 ​​​​ ‘For we are GOD’s​​ workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which GOD​​ prepared in advance for us to do.’ ​​​​

1 John 4:4 ​​​​ ‘You, dear children, are from GOD and have overcome them ​​ (the false and evil spirits) because the ONE ​​ (GOD)​​ ​​ who is in you is greater than the​​ one (Satan and his demons) who​​ is (are) in the world.’

You can find meaning when you search for a greater purpose. ​​ If you have eyes of faith, you can find small joys every day.
