Purpose. We all look for it. A meaning for our existence.
Too often we look for purpose in the temporal. We look for our families, friends, career, education, or entertainment to fulfill us, but none of those things will ever give lasting purpose.
So where do we find it?
Ephesians 4:1b says “…Lead a life worthy of your calling, for you have been called by God.”
Ephesians also says in 2:10 “For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.”
Did you know God has placed a calling on your life and planned – in advance – good things for you to do? Now, He won’t force you to do those things, but He invites you in. When you step into His calling, you find meaning, joy, and fulfillment.
Now I’m not saying it’s easy. In fact, you can pretty much guarantee that there will be trouble, because the enemy of our souls always launches an attack when you’re working for the Lord, but you can find joy in spite of opposition and hardship.
The best thing about God’s call is that it can’t be stopped.
Romans 11:29 “For God’s gifts and His call can never be withdrawn.”
So if you’re struggling to find purpose, turn to God. He’s placed a special calling on your life!
