Don’t Forget: Life has Purpose at Every Stage! Part Two
“And we know that all things work together for good for those who love God, for those who are called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28
It is hard to see the purpose when you are going through a tough time. You may be asking yourself, “Why is this happening to me?” or “What did I do to deserve this?” It is often difficult to find God’s motive for the current level of our life. But remember, every stage of life has a purpose. The Bible says that we can trust God’s plan, even when we don’t understand it (Romans 8:28). He knows what He is doing, even when we don’t. So instead of focusing on our troubles, let’s focus on God.
When you focus on God, you’ll find that your troubles don’t seem so big anymore. So instead of worrying about what’s going to happen tomorrow or how you’re going to get through this tough time, let’s pray and ask Him to help us see His plan for our lives. When we do that, we’ll be able to trust Him more, knowing that He knows what’s best for us, even when we can’t see it ourselves. God’s plan for us is to give us the tools to live a life of purpose, and some of these tools come from life experiences and experiences with others.
Ephesians 1:11-12 says, “In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to His purpose who works all things according to the counsel of his will, so that we who were the first to hope in Christ might be to the praise of his glory.”
God will always answer your prayers. Just know that God will help you if you are struggling with something. He will be there for you no matter what happens in your life. Remember, your current situation doesn’t mean God has forgotten about you. Therefore, don’t lose hope because God has a plan for every stage of your life. He knows what is best for you, and even though you may not understand his motive right now, trust that he has a good reason for everything he does.
Therefore, I encourage you, don’t allow your current situation or circumstances to dictate bitterness and depression or create a barrier between you and God. The best way to overcome an obstacle or uncomfortable situation is by trusting God in all things. No one knows God’s plan for their life, so don’t forget that life has a greater purpose even in the tough times. Don’t forget to pray and keep your faith strong because all things are possible with God. Amen. Revelation 4:11 says, “Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will, they existed and were created.”
1. Oh Lord, thank you for your mercy and grace. I am thankful for the love, strength, courage, and wisdom I have received from your word.
2. Dear Lord Jesus, I ask you to help me know that you are in my present situation so that I may not weary or lose hope in you. Amen
