“…Let us not, therefore, sit idly by waiting for our “purpose” to fall out of a tree…”

20130824_084517We are told in ….Ecclesiastes 6:12   For who knows what is good for a person in life, during the few and meaningless days they pass through like a shadow? Who can tell them what will happen under the sun after they are gone?

God made each of us for a special purpose, on a special day, for a special reason.

The Special Reason:  Colossians 1:16 – “All things were created by him and for him.” 

The Special Purpose: Individually, God also has purposes for our lives.  Ephesians 2:10 says, “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”  Jeremiah 29:11– For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

A Special Day: The Bible tells us that God is “omniscient.” That…He knows everything….even before those things even happen. And, since God made us in His Own Image, He would therefore… know exactly what day those events would take place…it would not be “willy-nilly,” or arbitrary. Psalm 139:16 – Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Your book were all written The days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was not one of them.

It’s up to us, with the Grace of God, to determine what our purpose is. God assigns us that job. For me, I’ve come to realize that God the Son, is the Great Leader, Teacher, and Motivator….and my purpose is found in Matthew 28:19 – Go ye therefore teaching all nations…baptizing them in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Let us not, therefore, sit idly by waiting for our “purpose” to fall out of a tree. We must seek it….and “pick it off the tree” for ourselves. No one will do it for us, nor are they even capable

…it is our responsibility…and ours alone.

Are you seeking your PURPOSE? Don’t wait until you’re 70 years old…like I did.
