Your life Purpose
Life purpose is a sense of direction that shapes actions, and goals. Purpose comprises essential motivating facts directed towards the achievement of a particular purpose. Life purpose influences people’s actions and directs their decisions towards their life goals. Some men of great Characters in the Bible, such as Joseph was predestined for a particular purpose. Most men in the Bible were not imitators, but originals. Copycat or imitators may be missing their own glorious life purpose. Life’s purpose differs from passion and inspiration. Actually, is good to be passionate about something and go for it. Is also good to admire a person and inspire to be like the person. Life purpose or predetermined life is a Devine destine; what a person is destined to become. Life purpose is connected with a systematic process to attain a meaningful, and satisfying purposeful life which is called Divine destine.
Most people don’t exactly know why they are on earth even at old ages. Some people compare themselves with others or envy others because they don’t have a clue of whom they are and where God is taking them to. They don’t have the whole story about whoever they compare themselves with. 2nd Corinthians 10:12 says those who compare themselves with others are not wise. The best prayer everyone needs to pray: Ask God to reveal your designated life purpose to you. When there is a sense of direction, there will be no guilt, hate, comparison, envy, and jealousy. Entering into another person’s destine is risky. Original self is always the best because God has given every man according to the measure of faith. Perception is to an extent; perception of the good side of others without envisaging the bad sides can be dangerous. It may lead to an abandonment of a glorious destine into an unrealistic one. “All that glitters is not gold” a saying by Shakespeare, (The Merchant of Venice)
Joseph was sold into slavery, threw into prison, and later became a Prime Minister in his final destination. If Joseph was not predestined for his life purpose, he wouldn’t have withstood the traumatic experiences. He survived all the traumatic experiences. Such events were processes towards the realization of his Devine destine.” But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save many people alive” (Genesis 50:20 KJV) Joseph had a sense of direction and accepted all that happened to him was process towards the fulfillment of his Devine destine. Hence, he was able to forgive those who offended him.
Life is a process, a journey with a starting point through different connecting points before reaching the final destination. Precept upon precept: When someone loses his or her Devine life purpose, It will result in an unclear direction; improvidence, confusion, shortsightedness, and thriftlessness. If many people have a clue about their purpose in life and follow it, life will be much easier.
When God predestines a man, he starts from the first day he created him, mode the character, chose schools he will attend, the people he will meet in life, where he will lives or works, the level of blessings or problems, the events that will shape the man’s life and etc. There will be a sort of confidence towards the realization of goals. God is against covetousness and envy. God encourages everyone to be content with whom they are and with what they have.
1) “But godliness with contentment is great gain”(1 Timothy 6:6 KJV )
2) “A sound heart is the life of the flesh: but envy the rottenness of the bones” (Proverbs 14:30 KJV)
3)” Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee” (Hebrews 13:5 KJV)
As God to direct your lives to realize your life purpose.
