A Life of Purpose

“For 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”
Jeremiah 29:11, NIV

The testimony of King David’s life in the Bible has inspired and enriched the lives of many- from his early courageous years of battle, taking on a giant that even the army of trained men balked at, to the ownership of mistakes in his personal life, and culminating, in his mature years, battling for Israel, not to mention the building of a glorious House for God to live in.

The one consistent thread throughout his life was his love for God and his relationship with the One who called him, ‘a man after God’s own heart’ (Acts 13:22). David’s relationship with, and obedience to, God enabled him to find his God-given purpose.

When a person discovers their purpose in life, they are fulfilled, inspired, and invigorated, as well as inspiring, encouraging, and invigorating to others.

Many are seeking for their real purpose in life. This can only be found in Jesus. He will help you to rise like a phoenix from the ashes of despair, loss, disappointment, or whatever storms you’ve had to face in your life. He will give you fulfilment and contentment for the present and hope for the future.

So, what is the key to success in the eyes of the Lord? The key is not only relationship with God, but obedience to Him.

David served the purpose of God in his generation, and with God’s help, so can we.

So, if today you are looking for answers for your situation, or a way out, can I encourage you not to waste a minute longer being enticed by the empty broken cisterns of the world? Jesus alone is the Hope of the world. He is the true answer to your life’s purpose.
