Not Every Purpose is Known to Us
Although everyone and everything on earth have a purpose, this does not mean that we are aware of their purposes. For example, when human beings as a race turned their backs on God and His ways, as we learn about in Genesis 3, they lost their knowledge of God‘s intent for themselves and the world. Rejecting God was the equivalent of buying a sophisticated and intricate piece of equipment and then throwing away the user‘s manual. If you get something to work, it is only by pure chance under those circumstances.
The more likely scenario is that you will never get it to function properly. You will also miss out on the many features and functions it has to offer. But, of course, it will never fulfill its whole purpose. Likewise, humanity has not respected the fact that God‘s creation and His directions for living were established for a specific reason. If that purpose continues to be abandoned, you will never function properly as a human being. This is a very dangerous situation for you to be in because it leads right to the next principle.
God Put Your Purpose Within You
Becoming what God has purposed for you allows you to live effectively and worship your Creator, who has given you ideas, talents, resources, and energy to fulfill His desires and plans for your life. Proverbs 20:5 says, “The purposes of a man “s heart are deep waters, but a man of understanding draws them out.” That’s a powerful statement. “The purposes of a man “s heart are deep waters.” That means your purpose is inside of you. God has placed it deep within you. However, in order to draw it out, you need to be assisted by God’s wisdom and revelation — because your purpose was born in the mind of your Maker.
