The Five Purposes of God for Your Life
Without a shadow of doubt, everyone wants to live a "Life Well Lived". Who wouldn't? We can only live life well when we know its purpose. Almost a month after my birthday, I got a gift from my daughter Jaja. I didn't know what it was until I opened the box. It was a pair of AirPods. Just by looking at it, I know what it is for, but it was only after I went through its manual that I learned about its potential usability. Our lives are gifts from God. Unless we read the Bible, we wouldn't know our purposes, and we wouldn't live our lives to its full potential. The three foundations of a life well lived are knowing your identity, discovering your purposes, and knowing when to do them. Aligning these three together will give you the recipe to success. King Hezekiah was the greatest king that had ever lived. He was successful in everything he did because he knew who he was, he knew his purposes in life, and he knew when to do them. Many generations later Paul told Timothy, "If you stay away from sin you will be like one of these dishes made of purest gold—the very best in the house— so that Christ himself can use you for his highest purposes" (1 Timothy 2:21 TLB). The first two of those purposes are to worship God and to fellowship with His family. Hear more of it here!
