Finally!! Part 2 of Finding Purpose is out!
If you want to know the purpose of a thing, who do you go to? You go to the creator of that thing. Only the creator can tell you why he created it, what he created it for and the functionality of the thing.
If however, you get the information from somebody else, that person either obtained the information from the creator in person, or read the creator’s manual. The person could also just be assuming based on his/her use of something similar. In this case, the abuse (abnormal use) of the thing is inevitable.
It is the same with us humans. There is a purpose for mankind. There is a purpose for the creation of YOU in particular, and only your creator, GOD can tell you your true purpose. Getting this knowledge from anywhere else will surely result in the abuse (abnormal use) of your gifts and talents (your functionality). Your gifts and talents are given to you to fulfil your purpose.
For a very long time, I felt very unfulfilled with my life. I knew my life had a purpose and I even had an idea of what it was but I just couldn’t get myself to begin living it. I tried to learn from many different books but with some of them, I was even more confused because most of them would ask me what me loved to do. Problem was, I loved to do quite a few things. Which one exactly is it?
When I just couldn’t take it anymore, I sat down with my bibles (I like to study with different translations of the bible), iPad, notebook and pencils, and then I said “Father God, I need to know. I need to know. Open my life up to me. Show me who exactly I am. Holy Spirit, the Bible says you will lead me into all truth. Lead me into the truth of who I am. I am ready to know.” That began a very beautiful journey of discovery.
I discovered that the Lord had been waiting for me to discover me. He needed me to know who I am more than I ever wanted to know. The whole of creation is waiting for the manifestation of the sons of God. If the sons of God do not know who they are, what are they manifesting?
Until you know exactly what purpose you have been created for, you will not be able to affect your world with your light. You will not be able to eliminate the darkness in your world; God has given you solutions in your purpose to eliminate the darkness in the world around you.
Where exactly do I go to study in the bible to find out my purpose? You’re probably thinking. Well, the bible lets us know that as He is, so are we in this world. The question is “How is He?” Those were the thoughts that came to me.
I felt inspired in my spirit to go to the beginning, Genesis, to begin answering the question. I acted like I had never known God and was learning about Him for the first time. And oh my! What a discovery! As I began from Genesis 1, the Holy Spirit began to open up different passages to me.
I came out of that quest with a mission statement for my life; to inspire and empower others live fulfilled lives. And now, I help others discover their purpose using their creator’s manual (the Bible) with the very present help of the Spirit of the creator, the Holy Spirit, leading them into the truth of who they are.
I am a firm believer that the discovery of your purpose is the discovery of your money, your wealth. So, get ready for when you discover your purpose, you will surely discover your wealth.
More on your purpose and your wealth in my next post.
