WHY AM I HERE?

Sojourners

Have you ever wondered why God placed you here on this earth and what it is you are supposed to really be doing while here?  

Jeremiah 29: 1-14 tells us that He wants us to seek Him with all our heart so He will then  be able to set us free  from the enemy’s camp.  All good and perfect gifts and plans come from above and it was of His own free will that He gave us birth as sons by His Word of Truth, so that we would be firstfruits of His creatures (a sample of what He created to be consecrated to Himself)   (James 1: 12-18).

Bottom line is that God put all of us here on earth for a purpose.  Generally, it is to fellowship with Him; to develop a good relationship with Him.  He also wants us to RECOVER all that we lost through Adam.  God wants us to experience GRACE in our lives.  We are here because of what Jesus did at Calvary.  We are here so that others can learn from our lives, from the testimony of what Jesus did for us, and what He can also do for them.  We are here to do battle with satan. 

The question is, what is your own purpose as an individual?  Have you found out from the Lord?  A wasted life is a life without purpose.  Until your purpose for living is discovered, life may have no meaning for you.  Your reason for being here on earth provides the key to your existence.  These things must be clear in your spirit.  You can NOT live your life on experiment or on a trial and error basis.  Life is so short that you cannot experiment with it; you cannot afford to live on assumption (James 4: 14).  Pray like this:  “Oh Lord, make my purpose for living plain before my eyes, I bind every spirit of aimlessness.” 

In everything you do in life, you must have a purpose for it, be it marriage, business, etc.  The reason there is so much confusion around all of us right now is that people are outside God’s purpose for their lives.  They are busy pursuing their own little dreams.  The worship leader is busy building houses and the painter is hell-bent on flying the aircraft.  When this happens, a person’s purpose is defeated and things will NOT work the way they should.  I want to close with something that the wisest man God ever created, Solomon, said at the end of his days.  All has been heard:  the end of the matter is:  Fear God (revere and worship Him, knowing that He is) and keep His commandments, for this is the whole of man (the full, original purpose of his creation, the object of God’s providence, the root of character, the foundation of all happiness, the adjustment to all inharmonious circumstances and conditions under the sun) and the whole (duty) of every man.  For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it is good or evil.  (Ecclesiastes 12: 13, 14). 

Sarah Reeves puts all this beautifully into a song and I encourage you to click on it and listen to the words of worship and praise:    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u4GGegzGJ7s&feature=related
