“Purpose ” according to the dictionary means ‘the reason for which something is done, or the reason it is done in a particular way’. I’m not talking about your job, your daily responsibilities, or even your long-term goals. I mean the real reason why you’re here at all — the very reason you exist. Perhaps you’re a rather nihilistic person who doesn’t believe you have a purpose and that life has no meaning. There is nobody that walk or walked through this earth without a purpose. From the tiniest to the greatest of all creation have a purpose that the accomplish before their time is come to retire to heaven above. It’s quite unfortunate how many wake up and scale crow about without the knowledge of who they are and darn why they are here at this time.
Purpose is the main reason for human creation. Before every individual is brought to the world, God has certain plans for our lives. We were created to accomplish certain things and to make the world a better place. It’s insane to think you were born without a purpose, take pastor nick for example; most people will take their lives any chance that they get, some will because of how they look and others because they feel and know that they will never accomplish anything, so therefore there is no purpose for their lives. Pastor nick did not feel that way at all but guess what? He persevere and now he is on the daily changing and touching lives globally.
I won’t tag it useless to read this post if you feel like you don’t have a purpose, I have faith that this post will minister into your life and extirpate any notion of purposelessness you feel or know about yourself in Jesus name. I somehow believe that even if you don’t have a purpose is a purpose, because our maker who maketh the impossible possible have his own way of perfecting things that our mortal minds can’t understand.
Alongside the things we are to accomplish, we have been entrusted with certain talents which will enable us carry out God’s plans for our lives efficiently and effectively.
So many people in the world today are living purposeless lives (lives out of purpose) and without purpose, the world cannot be a better place. Some feel they came to this world to be famous, some to acquire wealth, some to stay out of trouble and live right, some to get married and so many others; those things are alright but purpose is far more than that.
Some people also mistake career for purpose. Career is what one acquires to become, i.e, one’s profession. When you discover your purpose, work towards achieving it and make the right choice of career, you are then on the right path and you won’t regard your existence as a mistake. Purpose brings true happiness to you because when you realize what your purpose is, you will discover that it connects you to people and by people, I mean the right people that help you connect the dots to making your purpose a prudent and purposeful reality. After you have discovered your purpose, your journey to making it a reality is like a ministerial conference journey, it takes you places and introduce you to a large crowd of people. In the Christian book of proverbs 18:16, it clearly states;
A man’s gift maketh room for him. And bringeth him before great men.
And in the process you touch lives and bring about happiness into their lives and that is the true definition of happiness. It might be right to say that HAPPINESS IS YOUR PURPOSE or PURPOSE IS HAPPINESS.
