During Bible study we have had discussions pertaining to God’s purpose for our lives. As this year unfolds, we should continue to seek God’s purpose for our lives. This requires us to be engaged in study, worship, prayer, discipline, and quiet moments with God. Not only will it give us fulfillment when we know God’s purpose for our lives, but it will give us greater contentment when we accomplish His purpose in our lives. In Acts 26:16, we find these words:
“’Now get to your feet! For I have appeared to you to appoint you as my servant and witness. Tell people that you have seen me, and tell them what I will show you in the future.’”
God appeared to Saul (later known as Paul) who was persecuting those who followed the Lord. Initially, Saul intended to bring death to Christians. Then he had the experience on the Road to Damascus when the Lord spoke to him and gave him an assignment. Think about the significance of what was taking place. He who was totally against all the Master stood for, but now has now been given an assignment. Only God can take someone who had been so ungodly and give him a godly mission. This lets us know that God has a purpose for all our lives. Prayerfully, we know the purpose God has for our lives and we are living out our purpose every day.
