Daily Devotional August 31 - God's Purpose - Your Purpose

"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose." Romans 8:28

You should know, that if you are saved, God called you and you answered yes. When God called you and you answered yes, you did not know what that would exactly mean or where that would take you, but God did. God called you so that His purpose for you would be known, developed and utilized.
What is God's purpose for you?
What has God purposed for you?
What has God purposed you for?
What is your purpose for God?

What is God's purpose for you?
These are important questions that must be answered if you are to complete your mission in life. Whether you hold to the fact that God has declared your future and you are following His lead or that you declare your future and God is helping you, you can rest assured that God knew all about everything you had in mind before He even create the earth. It doesn't matter too much which philosophy you adhere to concerning who purposed what, but it does matter that you recognize God's part in what you are doing. If you don't need God to help you accomplish what is on your mind, and you don't need faith to get from one point to another, you are definitely not fulfilling God's purpose for you.

What has God purposed for you?
Everything. All of creation was designed for you. God prepared a path so that you would have all the components necessary to complete any tasks that God calls for or that you are inspired to do. The earth and all the natural materials are available for you to dream, design and build you dreams. Along with the natural materials is the intelligence that God endowed you with that also contains all the components necessary for you to fulfill what God purposed for you as well as fulfill what purposes you might be inspired to accomplish. What God has purposed for you is everything.

What has God purposed you for?
All of creation was designed to enable you to fulfill your purposes in life. There are more than one. I don't mean fulfill your purpose, like becoming a Jaguar salesperson or a LPN. I'm talking about the direction you are in. If the direction you are in is to use your talents, skills and insight to fulfill God's purpose in your life and to fulfill your dreams, goals and tasks at hand then you are already in the right direction. God will continue to bless you as you move forward. If you are not considering God's participation in your life's endeavors then you are not noticing what God purposed you for. You are very important to the overall plan that God has for mankind. What God purposed you for can only be accomplished by you.

What is your purpose for God?
What is your intent with God? What is it that you want God for? What do you want to do with God? All of these questions are to spark you to realize that even though God has a purpose for your life and God has purposed creation for you, what you do with God will have a great deal to do with your life's success story. I bring this up because many modern Christians, in their mind, are just using God. They see God as a distant, uninterested, out of touch with modernity, God that once played a role as pertains to creation, but now is just a product of/in the mind. Too many Christians do not rely on God on a daily basis to accomplish their life's dreams, goals and tasks at hand. What is your purpose for God?
