Isaiah 49:15: Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yes, they may forget, but I will not forget you.
Why are you here?
Many times we have feelings of worthlessness. You wonder why you are even alive. You feel as though your presence in this world causes more harm than good.
Have you ever felt like the world would be better off without you? I have! And it is a thought sent by the enemy to keep you from fulfilling God’s plans for your life.
God has a purpose for you
The people around us may either have a positive or negative influence on us. But God always wants the best for us. Sometimes people make comments that make you feel that you have no purpose in life.
But I tell you today, God has a purpose for you. Even before we were conceived, He knew us. Exodus 9:16: But I have raised you up for this very purpose, that I might show you my power and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.
We are here to serve the Lord
God wants to use us for his glory. We are not accidents, but we are here to serve the God who created us. “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord” (Joshua 24:15).
Despite what others think, say or feel about you, no one can interrupt God’s plans for your life. Now I say to you, it will not be an easy walk when you are waking with a purpose. But God provides all that is required to battle with, and overcome, the enemy.
Stuck in a rut
Sometimes we find ourselves spiritually stuck. We want to change, but somehow, we cannot bring about the change we desire.
In his book: God’s Power to Change Your Life (Living with Purpose), Pastor Rick Warren gives you practical guidance for change in your life, as you apply the truth of God’s Word.
Put on the full armor of God
Whatever trials come your way, put on the whole armor of God that you will be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
We are here to fight the devil so that we can inherit the kingdom of heaven. What most people fail to realize is that this life is temporary. So, why fight for things of this world when we know that it will pass away?
What do you choose?
Some even think that death is the final destination but heaven and hell is. So what do you choose?
Do you choose to fulfill your purpose and do God’s work? Or, do you chose to listen to lies from others, become discouraged and be led away from Christ? The choice is ours. What do you choose?
