Jesus had a core understanding of his purpose. He knew why he existed and he knew what he was alive in history. Do you live each day with the same conviction as Jesus did? If you don’t, you can.
Ephesians 5:16 says, ‘Make the best use of the time, because the days are evil.’ The best use of your time is to connect to the purpose of God for your life. You were created for a purpose. God doesn’t make rubbish and you aren’t here by accident. God has a specific intention for your existence and unique expression for the wiring that makes you, you.
The universal question common to everyone is, ‘What on earth am I here for?’ We all ask this at some point in our lives. I asked this a lot in my teenage years and I’m going through a new season of sharpening the focus in my life, where God is drawing attention to my purpose for the future ministry he wants me to engage in. I’ve observed that this question will come to your attention in your life when God is wanting to transition you into a new season that he has for you. It’s in questioning, that you end up seeking God for answers and as a result deepen your relationship with him and thus get promoted to a new level of awareness of your unique calling.
God is on a mission in the earth and he created you to play a specific role within it. Join God in what he is doing by seeking him for your unique purpose. Listen to what others are encouraging you in. Observe the areas in which you find yourself gifted and graced for. Ask yourself, what am I passionate about more than anything else? Get involved in serving in an area of ministry and your gifts will begin to surface.
Don’t waste time by just going through the motions but reposition yourself for the purpose of God in your life.
