God Given Purpose
Purpose is defined as the reason why something is done, the reason why something is created or the reason why something exists. A plan is defined as a detailed proposal for achieving something or an intention for what one is going to do. When something is created, it is done with a purpose in mind. A specific plan for what it is going to be used for.
That idea not only applies to the things that we create but it applies to us as well. We were created by God, for His specific purpose, a good purpose.
Philippians 2:1313for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.
God has a plan and a purpose for each of our lives. He created each of us with specific thoughts in mind. Good thoughts for us to prosper, thoughts that our desires would be accomplished during this lifetime and thoughts that we would aspire to a great future.
Jeremiah 29:1111For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
God does not want to hide our purpose from us. He wants us to find it. It's all up to us, if you want it he will show it to you.
Psalm 16:11 11Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
There are many people who God has shown them their purpose. Or planted a seed in them and they feel strongly that they should be doing a specific thing in their life but they do not act act on it. That feeling, that thought, that inspiration inside of you is a direct communication from God. Do not ignore it, it could change your life for the better.
Your purpose, the plan that God has for your life is already yours. And it was paced in you from the very beginning. You just have to recognize it, pursue it and do the work. Seek a closer walk with God and listen to the small still voice. Those are the keys to finding and walking in your God given purpose.
Doesn't it make sense, He is the Creator. Who would know better than Him about what He has created us to do? I found my purpose through my relationship with Him and by aligning everything in my life with Him. If you want to know more about my relationship with Him and the things that I had to get into alignment, check out my latest book Stumbling Blocks, Finding the Pathway to Purpose.

True purpose, each of our lives has one. Don't leave this life without finding yours.
