Discovering Your God Given Purpose

Updated on August 26, 2017

Lisa is a spiritual person and is on a journey to discovering and fulfilling her purpose in life.

The Bible Gives us Answers

Do you know what your God given purpose is? You were not put here just to exist. God gave us all talents that he expects us to use to the best of our ability. God created us in his image and likeness. Essentially this means that we were created to function just like God.



Parable of the Talents

Take a look at the parable of the talents in Matthew 25:14-29.

God gave each and everyone of us a talent and He expects us to use our talents to the best of our ability.


Everyone of us was put on this earth to fulfil a specific purpose. No-one is a mistake. God knew who you were before you were born and has a record of you from birth to now.

God is Our Source to Achieving Greatness

If we are to become all that we can be, we need to stay in touch and in tune with our Creator. God gave us life, so to understand life, we need to understand God, and to understand God we must have his Holy Spirit. Once we have the Holy Spirit our lives will be happy and meaningful.


But this can only be accomplished if we believe.

It is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that there is a God and that He rewards those who sincerely seek him. (Hebrews 11:6)

Even Jesus said you can become greater than Him (John 14:12)

The Choice is Yours

If you choose to live your life for God, the world would be literally at your feet. It is not an easy task, but a truly rewarding one. Do not be afraid. Don't let other people or circumstances prevent you from achieving your goals. Put fear aside and bravely step out into the unknown. Put faith and trust in God and everything will work out for you.

Whatever your choice just remember that you were not put on this earth to simply exist, but to make a difference in the world

      Good hub LisaG. Thanks! It's good to stop and think about life and what's most important in life and where we're going. Is it the right path? Am I right on track, or have I strayed? We all need to find a way in our lives to make a difference! And it must always begin with God. Ask Him for wisdom.
