"For I know the plans I have for you." Jeremiah 29:11
We spend a lot of time thinking about ourselves, our future, and what's in store. But God has a purpose and a plan for your life. Jeremiah 29:11 shows that God knows us and that He has good plans for us; that He is sovereignly directing our lives. During times of uncertainty, this promise is deeply comforting. We cannot see the future, but this verse encourages us and promises that God has a future and hope for each one of us.
There's no greater blessing than finding your purpose. If you're searching for your calling, you've got to start by going to God for His help. Your passions, your God-given gifts, and the insight from others could be telling you that you were created for another purpose.
Consider that your purpose is not just about you; it's about what God wants to do through you. Since God has called you, He is completely able to reveal your purpose to you, and He will as you diligently seek Him. We should ask him what His plan is for us, pray for guidance, and then we should be willing to do what we hear Him say.
How does God want to use you to be a blessing to others?
