Topic: THE JOURNEY OF LIFE…..Part 3
Text: Ecclesiastes 3:1KJV
1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
In part 2, we discussed that journey of life is a journey of purpose and that journeying through life without purpose is liken to a man travelling somewhere without any reason, of course it will amount to waste of time, enegy and resources.
Today we want go further discussing about purpose. Before a journey of purpose can be accomplished, it must first be discovered.
God is a master planner and the master sculptor who can mold and remold lives. God has general purpose for man which can be found in the scriptures e.g
* To show forth his praises, 1 Peter 2:9
* To have dominion, frutitful, multiply and subdue the earth, Genesis 1:26-28
* To have an expected end, Jeremiah 29:11
* To fear God and keep God’s commandments, Ecclesiastes 12:13 e.t.c
However, God has specific purpose for every man, and that, man must seek to discover his specific God-given purpose in the journey of life. The revealer of purpose of life is God himself, so if you must discover your purpose, you got to ask God and seek his face, you’ve got to search deep by the spirit of God (1Corinthian 2:10). Failure to seek God and discover purpose will amount to;
* Abuse of life and purpose (of which many are victims, living a life of enmity against God)
* Living below God’s standard for such lives
* Living to fulfil another man’s purpose
A few litmus questions, to also guide in purpose discovery are:
* What do you have passion for?
* What do you do with easy without stress when other struggles with it?
* What do like to do over and over again even when no one praises you?
Genuine answers to those litmus questions can help to discover your purpose, however they must be things that glorify God.
After purpose discovery, fulfilling the purpose cannot be done without your maker, because he knows the end from the beginning, and so he alone can guide and direct in the journey of life to fulfilling purpose. God bless you
* Father, help me to discover and fulfil purpose in this journey of life in Jesus Name.
