“Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.” (Revelation 4:11 KJV)
“What is my purpose? Why am I here?” How many times a day are those questions asked on planet earth? How many times have we asked those questions in the course of our lives? The. answer is in plain sight in the black and white writing of Revelation 4:11. Drum roll! Are you ready? Our purpose is His pleasure. We are and were created for the pleasure of the Lord God.
Every breath we take, every move we make, everything we do and everything we do not do, everything we say and everything we pray should bring pleasure to our Heavenly Father.
“Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” (1 Corinthians 10:31 NKJV)
How do we fulfill our purpose in life? As created beings, the children of God, we bring glory and honor and power to God who has created all things. It is why we exist. We can do all things through Him and nothing without Him. Everything we have or have ever done is to the credit of God, our Father. Anything and everything we have is because of Him. He deserves all the glory. Every victory and success, His. Until we give Him the glory that He is due, we are not fulfilling our created purpose. Wonder why so many people are unhappy?
I enCOURAGE you to fulfill your purpose. Whatever you do, do all for the glory of God. I know that easier said than done, but it is our mission here on earth and in heaven. We created for His pleasure to bring glory to His name.
