Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them. (Psalm 139:16 NKJV)
Have you ever wondered why it is taking so long for you to realize your reason for existing or purpose in life? Is it that the Creator has forsaken you and decided to give your purpose to another? Or maybe did He just create you to wonder the Earth aimlessly, never really amounting too much? Of course, not.
In my experience, I’ve found that purpose can be hidden or un-revealed for a number of reasons:
- Possibly, you have too many layers or distractions that have consumed your full attention.
- Possibly, you have not come to grips with the fact that you are valuable and can be used to bring about change in the lives of others.
- Possibly, He has been speaking it to you for a while yet you have chosen that this is not your path.
- Possibly, you are too afraid to ask and even more frighten at the thought of fully manifesting in your purpose.
Regardless of the reason for not realizing your purpose, one truth is evident – you were created with purpose in mind. The only thing that is hindering you from truly knowing and fulfilling purpose is YOU.
Commit this year to really manifesting in your purpose and experiencing the great rewards it entails. What are your plans, please leave a comment?
