I cry out to God Most High, to God, who fulfills his purpose for me. – Psalm 57:2 (NIV)
Oh, to know that our purpose is fulfilled by the Lord!
How beautiful it is to know that we do not need human approval or earthly accolades to know that we matter in His eyes. As we come to the end of ‘She Was Made With A Purpose’ series, continue to hold onto this beautiful truth that you were made with a purpose and there is nothing that anyone can do to take that away! Even when it comes to others around you.
Sometimes, it may seem like our boss’s purpose is to make our workday more challenge, or our parents’ purpose is to make us feel like we never meet their expectations. Or maybe, our significant other’s purpose seems like it’s to make us feel like the relationship is nothing but arguing and disagreeing.
But in the same way God is patient with us in understanding our purpose, we must be patient with others. It’s so easy to look at that disagreement we’re having with our spouse and say “they just don’t get it” or get frustrated when coworkers or customers seem to push our buttons. But what we have to remember is that God wants to fulfill that person’s purpose, too.
Imagine a world where we all looked at each other knowing that despite our flaws and shortcomings, we each had a purpose that was so much greater than ourselves. The world would be a much better place! But the good news is, that’s how God sees us. He looks at each of us with love and a desire for us to be with Him eternally through Jesus Christ. Remember this when you’re looking around and it seems like the only purpose in life is to just survive and barely make it through. Through Jesus Christ, there is so much more to life! In Him, you will find your purpose! So the next time you find yourself worrying and questioning what your purpose is, remember that it starts with knowing who you belong to, knowing that through your relationship with Jesus Christ, you have access to the most purpose-filled life!
