God has pre-ordained the works you are to do while you live on the earth.
Most people in society seek to find meaning and purpose from the following things:
— Achievements- performance and achievement is where many find their value.
__ Relationships- some believe meaning in life is based upon the kind of relationships they have.
— Acquiring money/things- some find meaning in acquiring money and material things.
— Recognition from others- some find meaning from what others think of them.
—Work/careers- some derive their purpose and identity from their work/careers.
— Play hard- some believe they must work hard to be able to play, which is their ultimate goal in life.
Without purpose, life has no meaning.
Isaiah tells us that "I have labored to no purpose; I have spent my labor and strength in vain and for nothing" (Isaiah 49:4).
Most people lack purpose and meaning because they have no relationship with God. Finding your purpose begins with God. Today would be a good day to determine if you are committed to fulfilling God’s purpose for your life.
