The Purpose of Life

Verse of the Day

He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. [NIV] Micah 6:8

……

In an interview by Paul Bradshaw with Rick Warren, Rick said: People ask me, what is the purpose of life? And I respond: In a nutshell, life is preparation for eternity. We were not made to last forever, and God wants us to be with Him in Heaven. One day my heart is going to stop, and that will be the end of my body– but not the end of me. I may live 60 to 100 years on earth, but I am going to spend trillions of years in eternity. This is the warm-up act – the dress rehearsal. God wants us to practice on earth what we will do forever in eternity. We were made by God and for God, and until you figure that out, life isn’t going to make sense. My prayer today is that for those who still haven’t figured out their life’s purpose that the Spirit of God will reveal Himself to them speedily in Jesus name. #Devotional #Verseoftheday #Bible #PurposeOfLife

Verse of the Day

But on Mount Zion will be deliverance; it will be holy, and Jacob will possess his inheritance. [NIV] Obadiah 1:17

……

Maybe someone around you may have dishonoured / violated / desecrated you in one way or another, leaving you with a feeling of shame / disgrace / humiliation. The Lord says there will be judgement. And while He is judging what transpired, He will deliver/restore you back to your rightful place. You will not only regain and take back all that belongs to you which you may have lost, but He will also make you holy / blessed / righteous. So even though you may have fallen on account of abuse at the hands of others, you will rise again, and even though all you may be seeing now is darkness, the Lord says He will be your light (Micah 7:18). Look unto Jesus, and all the grime that once clouded your once gorgeous life, will be wiped clean. He will help you see clearly into your wonderfully glorious future. You’re not written off yet! Your best days are on their way!

Verse of the Day:

As for me, I look to the LORD for help. I wait confidently for God to save me, and my God will certainly hear me. [NLT] Micah 7:7

….

On whom are you basing your confidence on? Many may base their confidence on a variety of people, thing or idol. That is them! But on whom ARE YOU basing YOUR confidence on? Can you confidently say that the object of your confidence is dependable, infallible, reliable and trustworthy? Are you willing to bet your life on that premise/conviction? Look only to Jehovah, God of heaven and earth. I can tell you that through all of my life’s journeys, I have known Him to be trustworthy and true. Why don’t you try Jesus? Your confidence in Him will never be misplaced!
