“Why am I here?”
It is one of the most fundamental questions asked by every person who has ever walked the earth. It is a question that has baffled mankind since the beginning of time. After all, you and I played no role in our own existence. None of us requested to be born into this world. One day we simply appeared on this earth. So it is only natural to ponder: Why am I here?
In fact, it is not a stretch to say that mankind instinctively realizes that the answer to this question is important. Interestingly, each one of us has already answered this question. Whether we realize it or not, our current path in life has been chosen based upon our own unique answer to this question.
I would even go a step further and suggest to you that the answer to this question not only determines your future on this earth, both also in the hereafter.
The Bible demystifies the purpose of our existence by revealing the origins of humanity. According to the New Testament, every person that exists was created by God, “through” and “for” Jesus Christ.
Put simply, every person and everything was created by God’s purpose, and for His purpose.
In addition, the Bible tells us that God crafted each one of us by His own hand:
“You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.” (Psalms 139:13-16)
Today, your life rests in the same loving hands that created you.
“In his hand is the life of every living thing and the breath of all mankind.” (Job 12:10)
Friend, you have been placed on this earth for a very specific purpose. Obviously, I don’t know you. But I do know that if you are struggling to find meaning in your life, you should consider this question: If your life truly had no purpose or meaning, why would you feel the need to search for one? The search for meaning resides deep within every human being. We intuitively know that there is something greater than ourselves within the universe.
God chose to bring you into existence as a part of His own eternal will. You have an eternal purpose!
Your purpose exists in the mind and will of God. Discovering your life’s purpose will come as you search the mind and will of God through prayer and consistent Bible reading. Search for Him with all of your heart, mind, and soul. He is near and waiting for you to find Him.
How will you know when you have found your life’s purpose? You will know when you find it in Him.
“Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.” (Revelation 4:11)
