Living life a life of purpose is something that everyone wants and God desires it for us, too! We will only find our true identify and our life’s purpose from God. Therefore, in order to live life “on purpose,” we have to consult God, our sovereign maker, who has full control over our lives. He’s author and the finisher of our faith!
Devotion: Living Life On Purpose
Focusing on His purpose over our own wants and desires for our lives is what brings clarity in the life of a believer. The bible teaches us this truth in Job 12:10 :
It is God who directs the lives of his creatures;
everyone’s life is in his power. (Job 12:10 GNT)
The word of God is full of wisdom and truth. So, turning to God’s word gives us insight and revelation into what our purpose is in Him! The bible thoroughly describes to us why we are here, what things we should avoid in life, how life works, and even what we can expect in the future! Relying on God’s word enables us to build our lives on eternal truths.
