When I think about PURPOSE, I always think about the why. Why do I want or need to do something? Why should I do something? PURPOSE is what motivates our PLANS.
PURPOSE is the why behind our PLANS or His PLANS. Our PURPOSE is the reason we do things, it's the motivation behind our PLAN. If you want to know God's PLAN you need to know the "why" behind it. We need to know God's PURPOSE for us.
If I want ice cream, I can have a plan to attain it. The PURPOSE is still to get ice cream. There is no PLAN without a PURPOSE. If we were to live without a PURPOSE, there would be no point in having a PLAN. A PLAN is pointless without a PURPOSE.
What then is the PURPOSE?
What is our God given PURPOSE?
Genesis 1:26 "Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image" NKJV
God made us in His image. We must understand our, why. God created us to reflect Him. Our why has to do with His image. Our why has to do with who He is. We are to be a reflection of who He is!
Our PURPOSE is to be like Him. But this also poses another question we must answer tomorrow. Who then is God? To reflect Him we must know or have some idea of who He is.
Something to think about; 1 John 4:8, Psalm 99:1-3, John 3:16-17, Psalm 51:10
Prayer: Lord make me in your image again, Help me to fulfill your PURPOSE in me. Teach me your ways Lord that I may be like you.
