Have you ever wondered what your life purpose is? Did you know that God made each of us for a purpose? We were made in God’s own image and with a purpose.
Only recently have I begun to question and seek what my purpose is. Seeking these answers has made me wonder how my life would be different, if I’d known this years ago.
Did you know that God has a purpose for each and every life? Psalm 138:8 says, “The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me; your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever. Do not forsake the work of your hands.”
So how do you determine God’s purpose for your life?
Let’s begin by defining life purpose. Your life purpose is a declaration of your passions, gifts, and talents that intentionally provide life direction and is driven by the Holy Spirit.
When determining your life purpose, ask yourself these five questions:
- Does it honor God?
- Does it reflect my passions, talents, skills and spiritual gifts?
- Does it apply to all seasons of my life, not just my current chapter?
- Does it give me a specific direction for life, but remain flexible to allow God to lead?
- Can it be easily reduced to one short phrase?
When determining your life purpose, seek God’s wisdom and guidance through His prayer and Bible Study.
