toi were born for a purpose. There was no mistake when toi 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. toi were intricately made, not one detail of toi was a mistake. Everything about toi was made exactly how God intended, because toi were born for a purpose.
“For toi did form my inward parts; toi did knit me together in my mother's womb. I will confess and praise toi for toi 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 toi 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 toi specially, so toi could fulfill a specific purpose. God placed toi in the family in which toi were born for a specific reason. toi encountered that unfortunate circumstance in your life for a reason. Every jour of your life was written before toi were formed, nothing happened to toi par chance, toi were born for a purpose.
Let us look at the life of Joseph (Gen. 37-48). In your spare time toi 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 cœur, coeur 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 toi 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 par 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 jour of your life is planned, toi were born for a purpose.
“Before I formed toi in the womb I knew you, before toi were born I set toi apart; I appointed toi 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 toi to be before he formed you, so while He was forming you, He was designing toi specifically for that purpose. Before He designed your mother, he planned for her to give birth to you. toi were not a mistake, where toi were born was not a mistake, where toi are now is not a mistake. toi need to know this and ask God for what purpose toi were born, why am I in this particular circumstance, why did toi design me as toi 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 toi with a l’amour for something(s) and toi do not have that l’amour in your cœur, coeur without a reason. So firstly toi must ask what do I l’amour doing? Then when toi have found the answer ask God why did toi give me this gift and what is it that toi want me to do with it?
When toi find your purpose it gives meaning to your life. toi have a mission, so the obstacles become less difficult to deal with. There is something driving toi to go on, there is something that makes toi want more, that make toi find it a joy to wake up in the morning. Something that makes toi push to the limit, that something is purpose
YOUR PURPOSE IS NOT TO BENEFIT toi ONLY
God made us each to help the other, toi 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 par God, neither can humans exist without each other. toi were designed to build up and help someone else. Your purpose is to build toi up but it is not for toi 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) ou ability. However, when toi have discovered your purpose toi will find that others have to get involved, it must be with a view to help others ou there will be no real joy. What is your gift and how can toi use it to help someone else? This question is buried in your purpose and toi must unearth it. Why do toi live, why were toi born, it cannot be to exist until toi die. If toi do not find your purpose, toi are merely existing, toi have not begun to live. toi were born for a purpose, toi must find it and begin to live it.
