Articles and books have been published around the world about the Life’s purposes. Surely, it has been an inspiration for many people. Frankly, there are only 2 steps that needed to be shared and apply in our life’s journey. Oh Yes!!! As simple as 1 and 2. Basically, it is base on our “Choices.” Here are the suggestions about “Finding our Purpose in life.”
1.) Accepting our Roots.
When God said, “Let us make man in our image (Genesis 1:26, KJV).” It is a proof that all mankind is rooted from the image of God. Maybe there are people who prefer to accept that human came from Apes. Honestly, I am NOT going to allow and adopt that theory, because I believe that God “formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being (Genesis 2:7, KJV).” Meaning, all human being should never allow this precious life to be level to an animal. We are the only masterpiece of God whom He chose to breathe in Us. Well, if one do not trust in God’s Holy Word. May I suggest to ask oneself this question — Would you let the value of human existence be lowered just because a dead man said so? If people would truly receive the Word of God then we will know our purpose in life. Why? Accepting the Facts that God created us in His own Special way will give us excitement to know our Creator. During our walk with God we would eventually open our hearts to Jesus Christ. Through the Power of the Holy Spirit our life will be extraordinary by allowing oneself to be Available to the Holy calling of God. Some of us are called to be preachers, missionaries, teachers, housekeeper, entrepreneur, and so on. For others they would rather go to a Tarot Reader or to someone else’s opinion to gravitate their lives purpose. Never be blindsided by another human who also need directions in life. Acknowledging where we came or rooted from is also being cautious to our task on earth. Without God there’s no life. Therefore, no life means no purpose.
2.) Knowing Oneself.
Let’s face the facts that there are people in any age and status in life does not have any idea who they are. When people asked to identify their selves. Automatically, the answer would be giving out their names, age, their physical appearances, education or profession and so on. Nothing wrong with the answers because it is telling about one self. That’s how we are brought up in the society we live-in. However, giving out personal information is the most scariest thing to do. For it becomes “The Measurement of an Individual.” Have anyone notice when someone loses their job they tend to move away from their friends and love ones? Sometimes when status in life changed drastically depression takes over to a person. This is an example on how these personal definitions affect the behavior and decision making. Scary, isn’t? Should Identification becomes US? If anyone would say, “yes,” then life becomes a cheap reference that ruins one’s purpose of living. For the simple reason they have no clue who they really are. Well, there are people who would claimed that they are the Chosen Special Child of God. However, when trials come these people tend to forget their identity. Why? Well, self-identification on the world’s perspective created a superficial satisfaction in life. So, when something has changed in one’s life it blurs who we really are. What should we do to get the answer of who we really are? Let us check the Holy Scripture in Psalm 139:14, “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well (KJV).” If we know who is our Creator then this verse alone is an assurance that every individual both young and old are Made Special by God with Uniqueness to Flourish the Earth to bring Glory and Honor to the Lord. Our existence is not base on the standard of this world because our life is given and hold by our God. Therefore, we should view our own and other people lives as precious as our Heavenly Father sees us. This is who we are in Christ, “a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light (1Peter 2:9, NIV).” Sad to say that most of us are tune into the demands of this world. As a result, we become defeated by our own selves because we forget that WE — “You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world (1 John 4:4, NIV).” This verse simply means that all God’s children are OVERCOMERS. In short, the society might define us BUT in God WE are His royal children. We belong to Jesus who conquered every lies of the enemy that always tries to pull us down. If Christ lives in us who won the victors crown then it means we are Victorious. Should we accept these Holy Scriptures Metaphorically that someday we will be the light of the world? Of course, NOT!!! If we ONLY hang-on to the word of God then we are lying to ourselves. Seemingly, we sees ourselves like a spider hanging on a web which easily be broken. The Holy Bible is Real and Alive, all we need to do is Believe and put it into Practice. Let us remind ourselves Who we are by Declaring the Promises of the Lord, Staying in HIS HOLY PRESENCE and Embracing life according on God’s standard.
The knowledge of man is good as long it support the purpose of God to all mankind. Never let the world teach us to take a measurement to identify ourselves. For our purpose is not base on anyone’s approval or standard. Finding our purpose is having a Choice by Accepting where we are rooted from and Knowing oneself. In reality, these two steps goes hand in hand. For Acknowledging the one who created us is also having the confidence who we really are in Christ and in this world we live in. Remember that we “are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden (Matthew 5:14, NIV). This is our main purpose in life. So, let our life bring light into the world whatever our situation and wherever we are for the Glory of God.
