But you are the ones chosen by God, chosen for the high calling of priestly work, chosen to be a holy people, God’s instruments to do His work and speak out for Him, to tell others of the night and day difference He made for you---from nothing to something, from rejected to accepted. [1 Peter 2:9-10]
Have you been searching deep down trying to discover what your purpose is in life? Do you find fulfillment and peace with the direction that your life is taking? Believe it or not, but most Christians struggles with defining their God-given purpose.
You may ask, “Where do I start?” It all starts with God. It is only in Him that you discover who you are and what you were put on this planet to do. You were made by Him and for Him. However, His purpose is always revealed through mankind.
We are told that God had great purpose for the children of Israel to lead them out of Egypt to the Promised Land. Some scholars says, what meant to be an 11 day journey turned into 40 years of wandering in the wilderness. This generation of Israelites did not make it to their destiny. They did not live out their purpose that God had divinely set for them.
It is God’s desire that you walk in your destiny and enjoy the purpose of your creation. Jeremiah 1:5 states, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I dedicated you, a prophet to the nations I appointed you.” He created you because He appointed you for something special. When you were conceived, He was there, when you were born, He was there, and it pleases Him that His will is accomplished through you. You were not an afterthought, or a mistake. God does not make mistakes; Everything He made, He made it intentionally.
However, God wants to take you out of the wandering zone and place you on the path to your destiny. As you walk in God’s plan for your life, you will become passionate for what you do for Him; you will become great at what you do for Him. Most of all, you will please Him and make Him proud that you are a part of His creation.
