Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you…plans to give you hope and a future.”
You have a purpose in life. God did not plop you down on earth and forget about you. He knew you when you were still “in your mother’s womb” (Ps. 139:13) and He had a purpose for your life even then (Ps. 139:16). It doesn’t matter how young or how old you are, God has a purpose for you.
Mordecai told Esther in Esther 4:14 that she had been “brought to the kingdom for such a time as this.” I daresay the same statement applies to each one of us. You have been placed here for “such a time as this.”
If you know the purpose God has for you, listen to Him. He will tell you when it’s time to implement that purpose.
If you don’t know the purpose God has for you, ask Him. And listen. He will tell you His purpose for you.
Dear Father, Thank you for showing me the purpose You have for me. Thank you for leading and guiding me to fulfill that purpose. I pray for those who are reading this today who may not know their purpose. I ask that You show them the plans and purposes you have for them. In Jesus’ matchless name, Amen.
