The person without a purpose is like a ship without a rudder. – Thomas Carlyle

God made you for a purpose. He alone knows what that purpose is. When you don’t know why something was made, you can easily abuse it. It might not make sense to ask the creation what its purpose is – rather ask its Creator.

You may be thinking, you don’t know where I came from, the things I’ve done. You don’t know my family, my parents, and my background. You may think your past excludes you from God’s great purpose for your life.

Nothing could be further from the truth. Understand this: “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you: before you were born, I sanctified you; I ordained you.” You don’t come from a background or a family. You may have come through them, but you didn’t come from them. You came from God. Your assignment can’t be messed up by your circumstances or your past.

You were created for an assignment in this world, and he gave you the power to get it done. The enemy’s job is to pull us out of that divine assignment, out of the will of God.

We find that God has given us a reason for our existence, a meaning for our existence. We were created by him, according to his desire, and our lives are to be lived for him so that we might accomplish what he has for us to do. When we trust the one who has made us, who works all things after the counsel of his will (Ephesians 1:11), then we are able to live a life of purpose. How the particulars of that purpose are expressed is up to the individual.

Do you sometimes feel inadequate? Open your heart to experience the depths of his great love for you and the plans he created for you.

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10
