Given a Purpose Before You Were Even Born

There are times when we may wonder if we have anything to offer. Like really … do we have any significance in the world? 

Other people may seem to have it all together, and it may feel like what theyve done is more important than anything we’ve ever accomplished—or could accomplish. Nothing we’ve achieved has ever been newsworthy or seemed to make much difference. We just go through our day the same as the one before.

But I believe without a doubt that every person who has ever been born has a reason to be here—a purpose. Something that God has called us to do.

Before God formed me in my mother’s womb, He knew me and before I came out of the womb He sanctified me, and ordained me a purpose to bless my generation. I will fulfill that purpose and my life on earth will glorify Him (Jeremiah 1:5).

This gives me assurance—and comfort—that my being here has more significance than taking up space on the planet.

Psalm 138:8 says, “The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me” (RSV). Another version states it this way: “The Lord will work out his plans for my life” (NLT).

God DOES have a purpose for you. Try to be patient if it seems to be taking a long time to reveal itself. Trust that in God’s timing, you’ll discover it—and it will be AWESOME!

If youre growing tired of waiting for something to happen in your life that makes you feel like you’re accomplishing something worthwhile, what can you do today that will help make that waiting easier?
