18 Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world.
11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:
God is a God of purpose and He works all things after the counsel of His will. Our opening Scripture reveals that God knew all His works from the beginning of the world. God works all things after the counsel of His own will. Nothing can catch God unawares. Right from the beginning, God planned out all things before He started the work of creation, so nothing on the scene today is an accident of creation. No man in existence today is a creature of accident. Settle it once and for all and be aware that God does not make mistakes; He has never made and can never make mistakes. All His works are perfect because He is perfect. God made everything for a purpose; He purposely purposefully designed life. So, life itself is the opportunity given to us by God to live out His purpose and plans for our lives. Life doesn’t count in days; it counts in the fulfillment of purpose. Your days are not meant to be counted; you are to make them count. How? By living life from heaven’s perspective of God’s eternal purpose for you. When purpose is known, there is direction, focus, something definite to aim at, something to live for. However, when the purpose of life is not known, abuse is inevitable. Use and abuse have one thing in common: purpose. Use is application in purpose, while abuse is application outside purpose.
Psalms 49:20 says, “Man that is in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beast that perisheth,” meaning that such a man lacks the understanding of his purpose for living. He is in honour but does not understand what it means to be in honour. With the calling of God on your life comes honour. When you find God’s purpose for you and live it out, you walk in honour and dignity the rest of your life. But when a man is ignorant of God’s purpose, he cannot discern the honour of God already cut out for him, for with purpose comes honour. Beloved, take charge of your life according to God’s purpose for you. Live an impactful life as you live out God’s purpose for you. Discover God’s purpose for you and follow it through and through to the end. Choose to live for significance. Live circumspectly, not circumstantially. Search out God’s will in the Word, and as the Spirit of God reveals it to you, live it out. May generations yet unborn be thankful to God that you were born and that you lived out God’s purpose for you.
My Solid Front (Confession):
In the Name of Jesus, I live my life to please God according to His purpose for me. I live for significance, not for fleshly gratification. Amen!
