Every child is born with the capacity to think like a genius but their surroundings and family life experiences determine how they face the rest of their life, many never find their true purpose.
The person without a purpose is like a ship without a rudder, they are at the mercy of the waves and the wind and have no control over their lives.
So have a purpose in life and in having it, throw such strength of mind and effort into your work as God has given you.
Jesus said in Matthew 4:19b-20 “Follow Me (Jesus) and I will make you fishers of men." Immediately they (Simon and Andrew) left their nets and followed Him.
God has a plan for your life and mine. Simon and Andrew’s life plan with Christ started right in that very verse. So how can you know what God’s plan is for your life?
The Bible is full of truth and wisdom on how you all can follow God’s plan for your life. As always, you need to look into the inspired Word of God, the Holy Bible, for concrete answers. For the Christian, being without purpose puts you at the mercy of the enemy who as Jesus said in John 10:10 is out to kill, steal and destroy.
That's why you need to know your purpose. But being defeated is often just a temporary condition. It is giving up that makes it a permanent condition.
Walt Disney said, "All your dreams can come true if you have the courage to pursue them."
God did not put you on this planet at this time for no reason. He has a plan for your life to be fulfilled here and now. If you do not find your purpose and fulfill it, there will be something that God planned that may be missed out on in someone else's life!
Michael-Angelo said, "Lord grant that I may always desire more than I can accomplish!"
You see, if you don't know your purpose you are just taking up space and wandering through life not achieving your full God-given potential. This condition only leads to disappointment, despair and depression.
All successful people have a goal. No one ever gets anywhere unless they know where they want to go and at least make some effort to get there.
You need to be like Moses and see every ordinary bush aflame with the presence of God. Today as you read this Mid-Week Faith Booster, if you want to achieve something like a feeling of well-being, just stop, take a good look at yourself and set some goals that will bring satisfaction and pride into your life. Seek God and ask Him what it is He plans for you, don't be a wandering generality - but be a meaningful specific.
Find your purpose and get on with it.
