Young & Hungry: What is My Purpose? [Part 1]

Purpose: the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists.

I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.
Jeremiah 1:5 NLT

 

How amazing is it that before you were created, before you ever knew who you were, God made a blueprint for your life? He had ideas and plans to carry out and He knew you would be the perfect fit. It is such a relief to know you aren’t here by accident. There is a reason for your existence. There’s meaning behind your make-up; your design, strengths and desires. But, what is it?

Your purpose is unique to your life and individual characteristics. It isn’t necessarily one specific thing and it also isn’t restricted to a title. It is a summary of the many reasons God needs you here on this earth. Understand that your purpose will not only benefit you. God will use it as a way to bless others.

What are you good at? What do you enjoy doing? How do you desire to help people? Oftentimes your purpose can be found in what you are truly passionate about. If you don’t know already, ask God to reveal the reason He created you. Then, ask Him for guidance as you choose to pursue His calling over your life. Stay tuned for a more in-depth post on discovering purpose!

Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,
Ephesians 3:20
