anda were born for a purpose. There was no mistake when anda were formed. Another sperm could have joined itself to another egg, but it did not. All the days of your life have been already written. Psalm39vs16. anda were intricately made, not one detail of anda was a mistake. Everything about anda was made exactly how God intended, because anda were born for a purpose.



“For anda did form my inward parts; anda did knit me together in my mother's womb. I will confess and praise anda for anda are fearful and wonderful and for the awful wonder of my birth! Wonderful are Your works, and that my inner self knows right well. My frame was not hidden from anda when I was being formed in secret [and] intricately and curiously wrought [as if embroidered with various colors] in the depths of the earth [a region of darkness and mystery]. Your eyes saw my unformed substance, and in Your book all the days [of my life] were written before ever they took shape, when as yet there was none of them.” Psalm139:13-16(Amplified Version)



God designed anda specially, so anda could fulfill a specific purpose. God placed anda in the family in which anda were born for a specific reason. anda encountered that unfortunate circumstance in your life for a reason. Every hari of your life was written before anda were formed, nothing happened to anda sejak chance, anda were born for a purpose.

Let us look at the life of Joseph (Gen. 37-48). In your spare time anda will have to read this because it is very lengthy. I will look at it briefly now.



The wife that Jacob loved, Rachel, could not have a child. After Jacob had many sons with his first wife, and her hati, tengah-tengah was broken time and time again, God gave Rachel a son in Jacob’s old age. Jacob understandably loved this son, Joseph, above all. This caused Joseph’s brothers to hate him and sold him into child slavery. Joseph went through many hard times in Egypt but was eventually promoted and became the highest ruler in Egypt, save for the Pharaoh. He, through this elevated position, could bring his family and the people of God to Egypt and saved their lives when a sore famine came upon the earth. This was a brief synopsis and it missed out many things, but I wanted anda to see how God intricately planned Joseph’s life. If Joseph was not born to the beloved wife of Jacob after so many years of grief, he would not be so loved sejak his father. If his father never treated him special above his brothers he would not be hated of them. If they did not hate him, he would not be sold into slavery, if he was not sold into slavery then the purpose that God had for his life, to save his family and nation, would not be fulfilled. Every hari of your life is planned, anda were born for a purpose.



“Before I formed anda in the womb I knew you, before anda were born I set anda apart; I appointed anda as a prophet to the nations.” Jer1:5



God told Jeremiah that he was set apart and appointed a prophet to the nations before he was even formed in the womb. This is true of all of us, a bit scary, profound and comforting all in one, but true. God knew who He wanted anda to be before he formed you, so while He was forming you, He was designing anda specifically for that purpose. Before He designed your mother, he planned for her to give birth to you. anda were not a mistake, where anda were born was not a mistake, where anda are now is not a mistake. anda need to know this and ask God for what purpose anda were born, why am I in this particular circumstance, why did anda Rekaan me as anda have, and placed me where I am. God what is my purpose?



One way in which your purpose can be identified is through your gifts. The bible speaks about talents given. God designed anda with a Cinta for something(s) and anda do not have that Cinta in your hati, tengah-tengah without a reason. So firstly anda must ask what do I Cinta doing? Then when anda have found the answer ask God why did anda give me this gift and what is it that anda want me to do with it?



When anda find your purpose it gives meaning to your life. anda have a mission, so the obstacles become less difficult to deal with. There is something driving anda to go on, there is something that makes anda want more, that make anda find it a joy to wake up in the morning. Something that makes anda push to the limit, that something is purpose



YOUR PURPOSE IS NOT TO BENEFIT anda ONLY



God made us each to help the other, anda must fit in the cycle of life. Life forms were designed to give sustenance to each other. The trees breathe out oxygen and we take it in, we breathe carbon dioxide they take it in. Life forms cannot exist without each other. It is so designed sejak God, neither can humans exist without each other. anda were designed to build up and help someone else. Your purpose is to build anda up but it is not for anda alone. The bible says:



“A man's gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men.” Prov18:16 (KJV).



So your gift(s) will make room for you. Your purpose is usually tied to your gift(s) atau ability. However, when anda have discovered your purpose anda will find that others have to get involved, it must be with a view to help others atau there will be no real joy. What is your gift and how can anda use it to help someone else? This soalan is buried in your purpose and anda must unearth it. Why do anda live, why were anda born, it cannot be to exist until anda die. If anda do not find your purpose, anda are merely existing, anda have not begun to live. anda were born for a purpose, anda must find it and begin to live it.
