The Lord and His purposes are perfect, and we must realize that we are not. We sometimes fill our heads with doubt during our busy lives, and it keeps us from living out the purposes that He has established for us. The Bible insures us that the Lord has created us and given us all a purpose.
Once God has established His purpose for us in life, no one can do anything to change that. Sometimes we get so busy and wrapped up in our lives that we forget the purpose behind them. We are driven by demands in our lives and forget that God always has a greater purpose. His purposes not only encompass our lives, but all the lives around us. Whether it be at home, school, work, neighborhood, and community. We can always look to God’s word for guidance.
Below are 7 Bible verses to remember and live out about purpose:
“But I have raised you up for this very purpose, that I might show you my power and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth” (Exodus 9:16).
“I know that you can do all things; no purpose of yours can be thwarted” (Job 42:2).
“Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails” (Proverbs 19:21).
“The purposes of a person’s heart are deep waters, but one who has insight draws them out” (Proverbs 20:5).
“Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose” (Philippians 2:12-13).
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28).
“He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace” (2 Timothy 1:9).
