What Is My Purpose On Earth
Why Am I Here
I begin this hub with a warning that I know it is not going to be well accepted by some but I am writing it anyway that I may cause some to at least think and if I shall have accomplished that then I can rest in my labor.
Like Columbus of old, I can hear the word of God echoing in my ears proclaiming that “Many are called but few are chosen”.
This let’s us know that some may have the call of God upon their lives but are not willing to accept the call when they think of what they may have to give up and the life style which they have become so acquainted with.
A Teenager asks the question, "Why am I here"?
Do You Know Who You Are
We were not a mistake but were created to fulfill and accomplish something significant and make a difference in our generation.
We were created to accomplish something special that no other person on Earth can accomplish, that God may leave his signature in our life.
God placed the plans for our life within us when we were born and that is why we are to delight our self in him that he may bring these hidden desires into a reality.
Every person born on this planet was created to stand out as a unique person but some just want to go along with the crowd and just blend in.
No one has your finger prints nor do they have your DNA.
You are special and were created to stand out, not blend in.
Our God knows every piece of matter that is in the universe and everything seen and unseen has a purpose for its existence.
The living God has carefully taken time to plan each part of our life in advance which I call our moment of time that we will live on this planet.
In eternity past, He worked out the course that our life would take and he knows everything that will happen to us in this life span.
Nothing takes this wonderful creator by surprise.
He is able to look at our past, present and future all at the same time.
His Holy Spirit was there when our moment of time was planned.
In the beginning; the Living God carefully looked down through the ages of time and yes, through every generation that would be born and planned every intricate detail of every life that would live on earth.
God had a desire to recover as many as possible from Satan’s rebellion.
God's Plan Unveiled
God has a plan to rescue as many as possible from Satan’s camp and gather together unto himself a people that he would call his family.
He foreknew who would choose his plan and he also knew that the majority would reject it and be lost forever.
We were predestined to become his sons and daughters at the cross.
He approaches us with the preaching of the cross which encourages us to accept Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
Our accepting Jesus is the first step in his plan that was predestined for us before the foundation of the world.
God demonstrated a desire to save people by his Love, his Grace and his workmanship in our doing good works to glorify his name in the Earth.
We must understand that God’s divine plan for us is in the Spirit and his Holy Spirit is in us enforcing this plan as Spiritual law.
His Spirit is the enforcer of Spiritual law.
He will take charge and control of the circumstances that surround us and cause natural law to be for or against us.
He represents us in heaven and we need his classroom.
His great reservoir of wisdom and council resides within our spirit just waiting to be released.
We may read God’s word but we will not find a book with our name on it but our purpose and calling can be revealed through the personal inward work of the Blessed Holy Spirit.
He knows our purpose and calling for he was in the Father’s presence when our life was planned.
Dear reader, Jesus fulfilled more than enough scripture that is required to be called an impostor.
Is the second covenant greater than the first or has the first covenant been done away with? I tell you yes on the first answer and no on the other.
The Lord Jesus fulfilled the law as the requirement for fellowship to be restored back to man as required by a Holy God.
He then established a new covenant based on faith in him and his finished work for man to have eternal life and be adopted into the family of God.
The law was set aside with all its ordinances and sacrifices as a way to put mans sins forward for another year which could never pay the sin debt passed on us through the rebellion of Adam.
God would not accept an innocent animal to redeem man’s sins for eternal life.
God gave his lamb as a ransom for all and the sin debt was paid in full.
The wrath of God was satisfied when his son hung and died. He had to be tried, convicted, and executed as a common criminal thus taking man’s sin upon him when he hung on the cross and died.
God sacrificed his son that he might have many sons adopted into his family.
We simply accept the free pardon offered by God as Jesus dying in our place and bringing us into a new covenant with God which is the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
When we accept his dying in our place, we then give up all rights to our life and make him our Lord and savior. We are no longer our own but were bought with a great price and that price was the sinless blood of the son of God.
We must realize that God knows us and we are important to him. WE must also realize that life matters because God loves us.
There is no room for depression and loneliness if we understand that God loved us enough to send his son to die in our place that we through faith might become the sons of God and be adopted into his royal family and become an heir with God and joint heirs with Jesus Christ.
It is time to come to a life of holiness and walk in the light of God’s word.
We need to speak his word out loud into the atmosphere that his promises and benefits are working in us.
God watches over his word to fulfill it. Listen dear reader, if God cares about the sparrows and knows when one dies, then he cares about you.
He cares for the spouses who have lost their partner in life.
He cares about the mother who has a son on death roll.
He cares about those incarcerated and serving their sentence for their crimes against society and he cares for those who feel that they are all alone.
People Are Important to God
People are important to God and he does not want us living in bondage but in the power and victory of the cross. Sin was dealt a mighty blow by our savior at the cross.
God raised him up for our justification that we could come into his holy presence as one who had no sin. We are declared righteous through the blood of Jesus.
We need to start living as one that knows God from the free pardon of sin and put the devil where he belongs and that is under our feet. Friends; we must never give the devil an inch in our lives.
He will lure us to take the bait like an angler trying to catch a fish.
He will make it look appealing but remember, if we do take the bait, it will have consequences and place us in bondage.
It is time to come to God and come out of irons.
What is the source of strength and stability in your life?
If it is anything but the Lord, then you are walking on unsteady ground.
The Lord never changes.
The LORD is the Everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the Earth.
He will not grow tired or weary, and his ways are higher than ours.
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew (exchange) their strength for his.
They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not faint as warriors in their Christian walk.
One does not need a physic or horoscope to predict their future, all they need do is delight in themselves in the Lord and look at what lies within.
Our future is not ahead of us as some would think but it was placed within us at birth.
I would like to now reflect on the life of a woman who had a slow start but made it into God’s hall of fame.
We find in John 4th chapter that the Samaritan woman at the well had a rough start in life but in the end, she was able to make it into God’s book as one who was able to evangelize a whole city.
The Jewish rabbi’s usually would tolerate up to three divorces but this woman had five.
Come see a man that told me all I ever did
What made this woman stand out when no doubt she knew that women would gossip behind her back?
She probably grew up having dreams of someday becoming a happily married wife with a wonderful family and may have even had a hope chest preparing for that day.
The Lord made the statements that his needs brought him to this Samaritan woman.
She was a broken vessel who had some knowledge of the coming Messiah and temple worship.
Notice that Christ asked the woman to receive Him and his Gift without any prerequisite change in her life.
After she believed and because she believed, her way of living would be changed forever.
I, like many others before me can reflect back on my life and identify with this woman and her failures; however I have decided that someone’s opinion of me does not have to become my reality and they will not be the one that will sign my report card.
My nature has been changed and I have been forgiven.
Prov. 19:21 Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.
Psalms 37:4 Delight thyself also in the Lord, and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
