Transformation Today: A Daily Devotional With Victor Adeyemi
Topic: The Search for Purpose
“It is God who directs the lives of his creatures; everyone’s life is in his power”- Job 12:10 GNT
The search for the purpose of life has puzzled people for thousands of years. That’s because we typically begin at the wrong starting point — ourselves.
We tend to ask self-centered questions like: “What do I want to be?”, “What should I do with my life?”, “What are my goals, my ambitions, and my dreams for my future?”. However, focusing on ourselves will never reveal our life’s purpose.
You didn’t create yourself, so there is no way you can tell yourself what you were created for! Only the creator or the owner’s manual could reveal its purpose. You cannot arrive at your life’s purpose by starting with a focus on yourself. You must begin with God, your Creator.
I am uniquely created, fit to fulfill my God-given purpose.
