26 Nov Discovering Your Purpose in Life
Purpose is power. It’s a very joyous feeling to know where you are going. It’s even more fulfilling if you know how to get there. There is nothing like accidental in the plans of God. Everyone that ever comes to this Earth have a purpose of coming here. If we all have a purpose of coming to this Earth, why then are people coming and living life like there is another one to live? Why do people loss the sight of the great assignment that God design them for? This is what we will be examining in this article, how to discover your purpose in life.
To live is to pursue great things. As long as you are still living, you have great assignment to pursue. What does this mean? It means whenever we are not fulfilling that assignment, we are dead. Now, you may ask, but I am still breathing. To die in this sense does not mean the person is breathless, it means the person is stripped of honor and dignity. It means the person is stripped of his or her birth right. God breathe life into to give you His image, is that for nothing? It can never be for nothing. There is purpose for everything under Heaven.
Whenever purpose is lacking, color is missing. If you found yourself in the place of your calling or gifting, your life will be full of color, beautifully radiating the glory and splendor of the creator. You will do things without been wearied. Even though you are working hard to push further your destiny, you will still be fulfilled doing it.
In the book of Jeremiah, chapter one verse 5, God, the creator of all destiny and purpose says unto Jeremiah;
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”
You should notice something so striking in the first part of this scripture, the word said, before I formed you in the womb I knew you. That is to say, before you and I are conceived, God has a plan for each one of us. We are like a product from a manufacturer sent to fulfill a certain purpose in a specific place during a specific period. If that product is not fulfilling that purpose, it’s recall by the manufacturer never to be sent again. If that product is fulfilling the purpose, the manufacturer is happy and He will give the best support He can offer to make sure that the product keep functioning at the peak.

Human being is like this, God is our manufacturer, and we did not make ourselves. We have a specific purpose to fulfil. This is the reason He gave us His own image. He has packaged into us what we can never use up as long as we are connected to Him. The potential in each and every one of us is so great that the wealth of the entire nation is not equal to one soul.
Let us take Jeremiah for example, after God spoke that word of purpose to him in verse 5, God continue and in verse 18, God said;
For behold, I have made you this day a fortified city and an iron pillar, and bronze walls against the whole land…..
A soul is likened to a city in this verse above. And the word of God said, what I say to one, I say to all. That means, you and I are created to be minimum a city and a nation. Falling short of this is an abuse on the potential God has deposited inside us.
Its Myles Munroe of blessed memory that said; if the purpose of a thing is not known, abuse is inevitable.
In Purpose lies the power to shake and move the world, to become a business titan, to become a great minister of the gospel, to become a great writer. But we have a responsibility; we have to discover our purpose with the help of God. We are to execute judgement on the Earth. We are to reign both on the Earth and in Heaven.
I am a musician that has the gift of singing right from my childhood; I discovered from early age that I liked music and that I will sing when I grow older. But, along the line, I mixed with people that we are not going on the same journey concerning music. It took the mercies of God to rescue me and bring me to my proper place.
