Discovering Your Life-Purpose

"I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go. I will counsel you with my eye upon you."1

In seminars I have asked hundreds of attendees how many believe that God has a purpose for their life. Almost every hand is raised. But then, when I ask how many know what their God-given life purpose is, only a scant few hands are raised. How sad that so few make the commitment to discover their life purpose. How sadder to think that we have lived without ever having discovered—let alone fulfilled—our God-given life purpose.

We serve God by serving people—and we serve people by developing and using our God-given natural and spiritual gifts. Wrapped up in these two principles one discovers his or her God-given life purpose.

As Theodore Roosevelt said, "Far better to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory, nor defeat."

No matter what your life purpose is, if it is God's will, there will always be a way to fulfill it no matter how great the challenge. Think of what Wilma Rudolph, Olympic Gold Medalist said, "My mother taught me very early to believe I could achieve any accomplishment I wanted to. The first was to walk without braces."

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, please help me to discover my God-given life purpose, get well-trained for it, and with your help dedicate my life to fulfilling it. Thank You for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus's name, amen."

1. Psalm 32:8 (NSB).
