What On Earth Am I Here For?

Everyone begin their career with different ambitions according to their likings and desires. Do you realize what you are good at or rely on something that comes naturally?

Eventually, we fall into that career of life doing what we are good at or something that comes naturally.

Have you ever pondered yourself why? (I do question myself a lot). Here when I say ‘good at’, it could be personality, character, intellect etc.

But one thing we can be sure of is that we are here not by accident because the Lord says, “ I am your creator” You are in my care even before we were conceived by our parents, we were conceived in the mind of God.

It is fate, nor chance, nor luck, nor coincidence that we were born.

But one thing we can be sure of is that we are here not by accident because the Lord says, “ I am your creator” You are in my care even before we were conceived by our parents, we were conceived in the mind of God. It is fate, nor chance, nor luck, nor coincidence that we were born.

These lines are nothing new in our life. We have heard from Sunday school days till today. Well, what could probably b the reason that God created you?

Don’t you think, all that exist in this universe have a purpose? We know that God created everything for a purpose. What about you?

Many a time I wondered and questioned myself, what are my dreams? Friends, I know this is one of the most talked about topic in Christian life, in church and in many religious books.

Many preachers have different thoughts and perspectives based on their studies and their own understanding.

We have just begun a new year which comes with celebration after celebrations. Everybody wants to start afresh in this New Year.

Won’t it good if we know the purpose of our life? This world is going really fast, especially life in a metropolitan city, trying to catch the pace it offers.

While chasing our dreams, we tend to forget who we are and what the purpose of life is.

Why not we run along with the world not forgetting our life’s purpose?

Let’s Refresh our mind and recollect what our life’s purpose is.

The moment we were born into this world, God smiled at us as an unseen witness, for he takes pleasure to the new life that he has just created. He predestined us to be adopted us as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will ( Eph. 1:5).

God did not need to create you but he chooses to create you for his own enjoyment.

The lord takes pleasure in his people (psalm 149:4). It is clear that God created us for his purpose. We are here not for our self but for God.

If God had created us, He must have done it for a reason and that reason is how we have got our talents, gift, personalities and our everything’s. Shouldn’t we use our talent to serve the purpose?

When we do that, we are serving God. To conclude, everything has a reason and the reason God created us is to serve his purpose. Not only attending church, preaching, ministering, helping poor is serving God but whatever we do, sing, play, study, preach, write etc.

God has a purpose in all of them as well. So when we are true to the purpose, it is worship and this is how we serve our creator. Anything we do that brings pleasure to God is an act of worship.

The lord is pleased only with those who worship him and trust his love( Psalm 147:11)

“For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities all things were created by him and for him” (Collosian1:16)
