Why Am I here?

Genesis 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.

Isaiah 43:7 everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made.”

If you are NOT a Christian….you probably won’t be able to process this information….but can you at least explore it?

I finally just got this understanding myself a few years ago when I was in very deep prayer. I know that the Holy Spirit gave me this so that I can understand clearly why I’m here…so I’ll try to explain what I received.

The whole purpose for my life is………….”It’s ALL about God!”   This whole thing…..life…living…the bible…..all that I know….all that I’ve learned….all I do….my very breath….is all about God. My life is not to be focused on money…things….job. Even friends and family don’t come before God. These things God has allowed me to have and I’m grateful for all He gives me….but….it’s all about Him….God. That’s it! My life is to bring Him glory in all I do and say. My purpose is to do his will…..just like my brother Jesus.

It’s all about God…everything! We are not even down here that long. I can’t believe I grew up…got married and raised a family…..have grown children….and one day in the near future I will not be on this earth and in this form.

Before I became a committed Christian…it was all about me…my wants and my desires. My whole life was geared around living for NOW! After experiencing salvation and the grace, peace, presence and love of God…..I DON’T WANT ANYTHING ELSE BUT GOD!! I know whose I am, why I’m here, and what my purpose is. I am to bring Him glory, worship Him, obey Him serve Him and honor Him with my life. Knowing this information has made me so happy inside and I have so much peace.

This body I have…. only holds my spirit and is a temple for Gods Holy Spirit. When I die…my spirit will leave this body right away and I will be present with the Lord. Right now the Holy Spirit is preparing me for my eternal life….a holy life with God. The Holy spirit is making me into what God wants me to be…although I’m flawed now….I have been forgiven because of Jesus dying on the cross for me and even though I still do sin (my original sin was taken care of by Jesus)….I can ask for forgiveness and I keep pressing on to live a life that is pleasing to God.

I know who I am, I know why I’m here and I know where I’m going! My life has direction. I know my spiritual gifts and I know the natural gifts that God has given me to use on earth…..come on…you’re not gonna me list everything out are you?……Oh good….because my blog would be so long…..but you get my point.

Many people are looking for their purpose in life. Many people are asking this question…..Why am I here?

Our souls seem to have a natural instinct to want to know this information. Until we find this answer we will try to make our life fit in this world…like trying to put a round peg in a square hole. It’s very frustrating so people try to find things and do things to satisfy this longing to know…to fit into this world.

Some might ask….well who does God think He is to get all this attention from us? I tell you…. He is the creator and when you understand this secret of life you will have peace. The secret is hidden in the gospel. Once you unlock that door…goodness will pour into your life…..and then you will be like me…knowing your purpose….knowing why you are here.

Message for today: It’s all about God….everything about us is all about God.

Homework – Get a sheet of paper and list out on one side all of your spiritual gifts and on the other side you natural gifts. Surprised huh?…..to see all God has done in your life.

The Dash…Your life story

If you have very little on your paper….. Houston …we have a problem! Start praying for God to reveal things to you and then……go out and bring some glory to our Father. Many people have preached sermons about your death date on your tombstone…the dash between the day you were born and the day you died. That dash is your life….what have you done? How much glory will God get out of your life?

Ephesians 2:10 For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
