Understanding Purpose and God’s Plan


Thomas Edison invented the electric bulb. He is the manufacturer while the bulb is the product. He didn’t decide to make the electric bulb an electric bulb after forming it, instead, he made the decision before he started the formation process. So, every product has its manufacturer and every manufacturer has a purpose of manufacturing his product. You and I, we are all products manufactured by our manufacturer which is God hence He said, Before I formed thee in the belly, I knew thee and I ordained thee a…{Jeremiah 1:4}

So what is purpose?

THE REASON FOR YOUR EXISTENCE

Just as in the passage above, God said he had already known you before your birth and had already ordained you for a particular thing which is your purpose.

YOUR FINAL DESTINATION IN LIFE

“…For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate…”{Romans 8:28-30} Before you were manufactured, God didn’t only know you but He also programmed how you are to be and how He wants you to end in life hence He said, “I know the thoughts that I think towards you, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you an expected end“{Jeremiah 29:11} So, before you were born, your end was known to Him.

GOD’S PLAN FOR YOU

“According as he hath chosen us in Him before the foundations of the world”{Ephesians 1:4} He knew you. “Being predestined according to the purpose of Him that worketh all things according to the counsel of His own will” {Ephesians 1:11}He knows how you will end. “For we are His workmanship created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them”{Ephesians 2:10}


Purpose is not decided, instead it is discovered.
A stethoscope can never become an earpiece neither can a microwave become a television. If you do not know what a microwave is, you will always think it to be a television not because you’re a fool but because when the purpose of anything is not known, abuse is inevitable.

One of the greatest reason (if not the greatest) why people fail is the loss of purpose. If God who manufactured you made you to be a teacher, nothing can ever make you successful in life if you choose to become a doctor.

In my subsequent posts, I’m going to be talking more about this topic to give you an indepth undertaking of how you need to discover your own purpose, how to run with it and lots more.
