WHY ??

Why are you here? What on earth is your purpose? Do you know? Can you answer without hesitancy or uncertainty?

How can you know your purpose without going to the one who created you? Many people live their life with vague answers to these vital questions. The heart of every man, woman, boy and girl longs to know what they born. Drifting from place to place, trying to find the meaning of their race in the face of a world of confusion. Who can I trust or who would even know the true purpose of my life?

The true answer is in Christ.

Acts 17:24-29
The God Who produced and formed the world and all things in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in handmade shrines. Neither is He served by human hands, as though He lacked anything, for it is He Himself Who gives life and breath and all things to all [people]. And He made from one [common origin, one source, one blood] all nations of men to settle on the face of the earth, having definitely determined [their] allotted periods of time and the fixed boundaries of their habitation (their settlements, lands, and abodes), So that they should seek God, in the hope that they might feel after Him and find Him, although He is not far from each one of us. For in Him we live and move and have our being; as even some of your [own] poets have said, For we are also His offspring. Since then we are God's offspring, we ought not to suppose that Deity (the Godhead) is like gold or silver or stone, [of the nature of] a representation by human art and imagination, or anything constructed or invented.

God is our creator and He is the only one qualified to tell us for what purpose we were born. God told Jeremiah the prophet, “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:5)

Just like God spoke clearly and specifically to Jeremiah the purpose for which he was born, God can also speak to you and I. God is not withholding anything from us. However, it is our responsibility to seek Him to find out His specific plan for our lives. It is not the responsibility of someone else to find out for us either. We must have a passion and a desire to want to know the purpose for which we were born. Then once we have clarity from the throne of God then we can go forward to fulfill our God given destinies.

Your life is important and you have a God ordained purpose. God loves you and waits for your earnest seeking of His plan for your life. Smile, your future is bright in Christ, so get ready for the journey of your life as your Creator unveils your true purpose.
