Day#1- What On Earth Am I Here For?
It All Starts with God
It's not about you.
If u want to know why u were placed on this Earth, u must begin with GOD! You were made by God and for God-and until u understand that, life will never make sense!!
The search for purpose has puzzled ppl for thousands of yrs. All bc we typically begin at the wrong starting point- OURSELVES!! Asking self-centered questions like:
"What do I want to be?"
"What should I do with my life?"
"What are my goals, ambitions, and dreams?"
Focusing on ourselves will never reveal our life's purpose!!
You need MORE than self-help advice!! The bible says, "Self-help is no help at all. Self-sacrifice is the way, my way, to finding yourself, your true self!!" Matt16:25 MSG.
God has not left us in the dark to wonder amd guess. He has clearly revealed his purposes for our lives in the bible. It's our owner's manual, explaining why we are alive, how life works, what to avoid, and what to expect in the future.
If you remember anything from day one of this 40-day journey.. remember this... GOD is not just the STARTING POINT of ur life, he is the SOURCE of it!!
DAY 1- Thinking
Point to ponder: It's not about me.
Verse to remember: "Everything got started in him and finds purpose in him." Colossians 1:16 (MSG)
Question to consider: How can I remind myself that life is really about living for God, not myself?
