Meaning of Life

Finding and Fulfilling Your Purpose

Have you ever considered what your true purpose in life is? If you have, you’re not alone. It’s a question that each follower of Christ asks themselves at least once in life. Some find the answer to it, while some return to God chasing the answer to this riddle.

“Why is it necessary to know the true purpose of my life?”

Once you embrace life’s true meaning, you will a huge positive impact on the people who surround you. Your true purpose in life gives your day-to-day actions true meaning. We discover ourselves through our true calling; on the other hand, some of us lose control when the purpose becomes bigger than ourselves.

34 Then he called the crowd to him along with his disciples and said: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.”

  • Mark 8:34

How Do You Do It?

1. Being Determined To Find Your True Purpose

God has given every life a purpose and there’s a definite roadmap for you to follow if you look for it. In fact, the plan that God has created for us is far better than the one we come up with. Begin by asking God to show you His true purpose. It’s going to be too thorough for you to process, but as you open your heart, it will begin to unfold, piece by piece.

5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;”

6 in all your ways submit to him,
    and he will make your paths straight.”

  • Proverbs 3:5, 6

2. Pursue A Meaningful Life

There are a thousand thoughts that flash before our eyes when we think of things we want in life. God wants you to find the answers to these questions as your relationship with Him evolves. In the meanwhile, he wants that you experience life completely.

21 There are many devices in a man’s heart; nevertheless the counsel of the Lord, that shall stand.”

  • Proverbs 19:21

3. Find Courage And Strength

As you walk through the different pathways of life, you’re going to find hurdles and resistance. The devil will take no pleasure in a life in which you achieve God’s plans. So to ensure you follow through, you have to protect your hunt for purpose with your faith in him. God fulfills His purpose through us, and if you’re willing to stand firm against all difficulties, he will ensure you find your treasure.

“6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:”

  • Philippians 1:6

It is not about what you’re capable of or your strengths, but it is God’s power that motivates you.

“20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,”

  • Ephesians 3:20
