Why Are You Here?


Have you ever stopped to consider why you are here? What is your purpose? Is there a reason for your existence? If so, what?

God created everything for His praise, glory, and as it pleased Him.

Genesis 1:
26 Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them28 And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”(ESV)

Isaiah 43:
everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made.”(ESV)

Jeremiah 1:
Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying, Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.”(ESV)

Jeremiah 29:
11 For I know the plans I have for you”—this is the Lord’s declaration—“plans for your welfare, not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.(HCSB)

Ephesians 2:
10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.(ESV)

John 10:
10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.(ESV)

Ephesians 1:
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love he predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ 10 as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.11 In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will, 12 so that we who were the first to hope in Christ might be to the praise of his glory.(ESV)

You were CREATED in the image of God. You were not some cosmic accident, God had a plan and purpose in mind just for you before He formed you. Seek God’s purpose for your life and then go about fulfilling it.

Luke 11:
And I tell you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 10 For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.(ESV)

Have you considered why you were born in the country in which you were born, in the city, to the family into which you were born? Why am I here at this time? Because you were born for such a time as this.

Maybe you haven’t been living for God but if you are still breathing air, God is not finished with you, He can still use you to accomplish His purpose. Seek Him and His purpose for your life, while you still have time.

~God Bless
