In Pursuit Of Purpose

We are designed for purpose.

Every person has a desire for purpose established within their heart, but if we do not find that purpose, it leaves us thinking, “there must be more to life than this.” We were never designed to be self-centred, conceited, egotistical consumers.

That feeling of discontentment is God’s calling card! It is His reminder that He has a specific role for each person. That call can be doubted, ignored, or even resisted, but it can never be snubbed out. The world can drown the sound out, sin can mar it, friends can laugh it off, family can show contempt to it, but like a human heart beat, it does not go away until death. Deep down it is still there…calling out to you.

Every person must find the purpose that God has for them, rarely does it find them. But the purpose is not found by endless searching, it is found in surrender. Only when we surrender our lives to the Lord and allow Him to direct our every step, can we be led into the perfect and pleasing will that He has for us.

It won’t be easy, but easy soon gets boring; and when you find yourself in the centre of His will, you will experience a deep peace in your heart. Soon you’ll discover that purpose found you and that purpose was in Christ.

‘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).
