God has a specific plan and purpose for each of our lives. Psalm 139:16 says, “Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” This means that even before we were born, God already knew everything about us – including what our purpose in life would be.
So how can we figure out what God’s specific plan and purpose is for our lives? The first step is to seek Him with all of our hearts. Jeremiah 29:13 says, “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” When we earnestly seek after God, He will reveal Himself to us and show us what He wants us to do.
Another way to figure out God’s purpose for our lives is to look at the gifts and talents He has given us. Often, our gifts and talents can give us clues about what we are meant to do with our lives. For example, someone with the gift of teaching may be meant to be a teacher, someone with the gift of music may be meant to be a musician, and someone with the gift of compassion may be meant to work in a helping profession such as social work or counseling.
If you’re not sure what your gifts and talents are, ask God to help you discover them. Pray that He would give you opportunities to use your gifts in ways that will bless others and glorify Him. And then be open to any door He may open for you.
Ultimately, the best way to figure out God’s purpose for your life is simply to ask Him. Talk to God and tell Him that you want to know His will for your life. Ask Him to guide you and give you wisdom. Then trust that He will lead you in the right direction.
“For I know the plans I have for you,â declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” -Jeremiah 29:11
This is one of the most well-known verses in the Bible, and for good reason. It is a powerful reminder that no matter what our circumstances may be, God has a plan for us. He wants to prosper us and give us hope for the future.
But what does that really mean? What is our purpose according to God?
The first thing we need to understand is that our purpose is not about us. It’s not about what we can do or accomplish. Our purpose is about glorifying God.
That may sound like a lofty goal, but it’s actually quite simple. Every day, we have the opportunity to show God’s love to those around us. We can do this through our words and actions. Even the smallest act of kindness can be a way of glorifying God.
So when we ask “What does God say about my purpose?”, the answer is that our purpose is to glorify Him. We can do this in big ways and small ways, but it all starts with a willingness to let Him work through us.
