Purpose is the essence of the existence of a thing, it is the reason behind the creation of a thing, animal or human. The purpose of a thing or an object encompasses its usefulness, importance and significance to mankind, the purpose of an individual also includes its significance to the universe.
As humans, have you ever asked yourself some questions about like,
Why am I created into the Earth?
Why am I born into this family?
What is my assignment as an individual?
Am I born to only acquire richness, money and fame? If NO, what else?
Proffering concrete answer to the aforementioned questions will help in discovering who you are, your potentials and your capabilities. Discovering your purpose is a paramount thing in the cause of living because without purpose life is meaningless and useless.
Myles Munroe said, and I quote “When the purpose of a thing is not known, the abuse is inevitable “.This is akin to saying that when the purpose of a thing has not been discovered, the abuse is impossible to avoid or prevent .Until you discover the purpose of God for your life, your life is a composite of mirage and illusion. A life of purpose gives you a sense of direction and a clear picture of where you are going thereby creating patterns on building your dreams and vision, opening the key to your rising as you build the “right” dream for your life and giving you access to a confident living as you picture your future. When you discover God’s purpose for your life, your life will change, it will change your mindset about living, mediocrity becomes a by-gone as your present situation displeases you.
Know it fully well that it is accomplishing God’s purpose for your life that brings satisfaction and not accomplishing your own purpose through God…. Never confuse the two together.
