For David… served the purpose of God in his own generation – Acts 13:36
Paul lived a purpose driven life. He said, “ I run straight to the goal with purpose in every step” – Corinthians 9:26. His only reason for living was to fulfill the purposes God had for him. He said, “For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain” – Philippians 1:21. Paul was not afraid of either living or dying. Either way, he would fulfill God’s purposes, He couldn’t lose!
One day history will come to a close, but eternity will go on forever. William Carey said, “The future is as bright as the promises of God.” When fulfilling your purposes seems tough, don’t give in to discouragement. Remember your reward, which will last forever. The bible says, “For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all” – 2 Corinthians 4:17
Imagine what it is going to be like one day, with all of us standing before the throne of God presenting our lives in deep gratitude and praise to Christ. Together we will say, “Worthy, oh Master! Yes, our God! Take the glory! The Honor! The Power! You created it all. It was created because you wanted it!” – Revelation 4:11. We will praise Him for His plan and live for His purposes forever!
