God's Purpose for Himself

The journey to discovering our purpose is to begin by asking what is God's purpose. What is God's goal in creating and governing the world? Why does He exist and what is His reason for being?

If we are seeking to follow Him it is important to know where He is going. If we don't know His goal and our lives are not in alignment with it, then we will find ourselves in conflict with God and excluded from fellowship with Him. However, on the other hand, nothing inspires love, joy, and peace for daily living like knowing you are in harmony with God and His purpose for Himself.

Adam and Eve chose to eat from the forbidden tree in order to be like God and independent of Him, the human race has been enslaved to a rebellious heart that hates to rely on God but loves to make a name for itself. We were created from the beginning in God's image that He might show forth God's glory. His plan is to multiply and fill the earth so that the knowledge of the glory of God would cover the whole world.

However, ever since the fall of man into sin, people have refused to align themselves with this divine goal. God exists to bring glory to Himself so that all of His creation may know Him. Take a moment now through this link to participate in a brief guided time of reflection that will help you know how to better pray to experience God's glory around you.
