Seeking God's Purpose For Your Life

Seeking Purpose

It’s Not About Me

“Everything got started in him and finds its purpose in him.” 
Colossians 1:16b

When you think of your life, what do you think of first?

I usually start with thinking about what I’ve been through, who is in my life, and what I’ve accomplished. I never begin thinking about what I was created for; my purpose in life.

Most people think that the best way to find your purpose in life is to self reflect…

“What am I good at?”
“What am I passionate about?”
“What has others told me that they want from me?”
“What have I been through?”
“Where do I feel most comfortable?”

Those are some great questions! But what is the main focus in them?

I or me.

We aren’t made to focus on ourselves. We were made by God FOR God. So how can we find our purpose without focusing on ourselves?

We should focus on God and the purpose He has made us for.

We may get to choose who and what is apart of our lives, but we do NOT get to choose what we were made for; our purpose!

So how can we figure out our purpose?

” It’s in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ and got our hopes up, he had his eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living, part of the overall purpose he is working out in everything and everyone.” Ephesians 1:11-12

In order to find out what we’re meant for, we need to have a relationship with Christ. He longs for that relationship with us, all we need to do is let him in. If you’re interested in learning more about how to have a relationship with Him, please email me at virtuousmama.org@gmail.com and we will talk more about it or fill out the contact form below and I will respond back to that.

His purpose for your life was thought of way before you were even born. He already had the plans written out for you and what you are supposed to do, without your opinion or your input. Like I said before, you may get to choose certain things in your life (freewill) but you are NOT able to choose your purpose. It has already been chosen for you.

Your purpose isn’t meant just for this small world. Your purpose is meant for something much bigger. God designed your life to live with Him in eternity.

What actions can we take to find that purpose?

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” Matthew 7:7

Seek after Him. ASK Him what your purpose is. He will answer you. It may not be the answer that you want to hear, but it will be the answer that will bring you the most fulfillment in life if you were to listen and follow it. You probably won’t hear His voice and it might not be clear at first. Once you get those answers and He begins revealing things to you, you’ll feel it.

In conclusion, we need to realize that our purpose isn’t about ourselves.

Let’s pray…
Dear Heavenly Father,
Help us to seek you through all that we do in order to fulfill the plan that you have for our lives. Thank you for all that you’ve shown me already, please continue to reveal to me what it is that you have in store for me. You are amazing, all powerful, and incredible.
For it’s in YOUR name I pray,
Amen.
