“What am I living for and what am I dying for are the same question.”
Since you and I have a unique spiritual DNA stored in our heart, it would stand to reason that it must be mined, brought forth, and developed. It is important to understand that this process takes much more than some humanistic formula. In essence, it is a work of God. Yes, we are co-laborers together with Him, but we must never forget that He is the author and finisher of our faith. It is not a work of man.
“He has made everything beautiful in its time. He also has planted eternity in men’s hearts and minds [a divinely implanted sense of a purpose working through the ages which nothing under the sun but God alone can satisfy], yet so that men cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end” (Ecclesiastes 3:11, Amplified Bible).
In continuing our look at discovering life purpose, it is extremely important to see that the thread of life purpose runs through every generation. It is something God has been, and is still, involved with throughout every generation. Every person deals with it, regardless of his race, color, or ethnicity. It is manifested in every generation, from builders to X’ers and all in-between.
Is it any wonder our hearts are always searching? Is it any wonder we always sense there is more?
Could it be that what we feel is a divine stirring? Perhaps our hearts are restless because this divine call has been extended to each of us. I believe so.
Call it a longing, a search for significance, or whatever you like, but God alone can satisfy this divine longing. Money can’t buy it; relationships are good, but they are no substitute. It takes an encounter with God to find real life purpose, because your purpose is wrapped up in Him.
It is expedient for you to understand that you don’t know everything about your life purpose. It doesn’t unfold suddenly. It’s progressive in nature. It’s not an A to Z happening; rather, it is revealed gradually, a process to be cherished and treasured. And here’s the clincher: you have to walk it out to figure it out.
Who’s helping you as you hit the trail? And who are you going to help in their journey?
Can you articulate your Life Purpose?
