Your Purpose in Life

Have you ever wondered what purpose God had for making you? Hopefully, you don't believe your life is a meaningless accident of random chance. Maybe you really do believe God has a purpose for your life, but you may ask, "How could I ever understand God's purpose?"

Understand God's purpose in everything, and that includes your life. He made all things for the praise of his glory. For everything comes from him; everything exists by his power and is intended for his glory. To him be glory evermore. Amen (Romans 11:36, NLT).

You were made to bring glory to God. If you know God's purpose for your life, then you are sure to know God's will for your life. The purpose and will of God for your life is to bring glory to his name.

When your motive in what you do is to bring glory to God, then he will bless you with wisdom, opportunity, insight, and ability. If your motive is only self-centered, sooner or later, you will lose your way in life. However, when your goal is to bring glory to God, everything in your life changes. That's God's purpose in your life.
