When we were babies, our sole purpose in life was to lay there, be cute, eat and poop. As we grew up, life then became about having fun, playing outside and getting as messy as we could. As we continued to mature, we started to think about our life and how there had to be more then just…living. We started asking ourselves questions like “What am I here for?” “Why was I born?” “What was I created to do?”
For some people, the answers to these questions are what shaped our lives. We went on a journey toward careers that supported our passions and did the things that we dreamed about. For others, these questions were presented, quickly pondered, and forgotten about. Life became something that just happened without any real significance.
Here’s the beauty of it all, despite what path we are on, God’s plan for our life is still the same. Each one of us has been wired for a specific destiny, and that doesn’t go away with time, sin, or age. God’s destiny for our life stays the same, even into eternity.
When God was creating the world, he looked over every step of the process, and declared that “It was good”. But when He made humanity, He declared that “It was VERY good.” The pinnacle and joy of His creation was us!
27 So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. 28 God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground” (NIV).
So Why Did God Make Us?
- Relationship: He is a loving Father who has no other agenda than to be with us and express His love to us.
- Partnership: As a loving Father God wants to include us in His purposes; He wants us to do what He is doing. He invites us to be a part of the “family business” and help perpetuate His loving leadership throughout the planet.
- Fruitfulness: He desires us to be fruitful and multiply in all areas of our lives. He wants to bless us abundantly and see us become fruitful on the earth.
When we step into God’s purposes for our life, and function the way He designed us to, we can have dominion in every area of life and fulfill our Destiny in God!
