Created With Purpose

The creator determines purpose. Just think about things that are created. When Steve Jobs started Apple he created things with purpose. They wanted to make money, but that's not what really drives a creator. A creator is driven by the purpose of the creation. Just think about how Apple products have changed so much in our world. 

Henry Ford is one of the greatest innovators of modern history. He did not invent the automobile, but his vision for the automobile was to make it affordable and accessible to the average American. He had a purpose behind his creation, and it changed the world. The creator determined the purpose of the creation. 

I choose to believe that God created mankind. I believe in the Bible, and I believe there is much more evidence for an intelligent creator than there is for this to come about because of chance. Science even tells us that something cannot come from nothing. Because I believe that God created me and you I believe that we have a purpose. 

If God did not intentionally create us and we just evolved from pond scum without any rhyme or reason than we have no clear purpose. We are just here for no reason in particular. We are just here to survive and then to die. This sounds pretty hopeless and I don't believe it is true. 

God created us for a purpose. I love the thoughts that Jeremiah shares in Jeremiah 29:11:

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

God has plans for me. God has a purpose and a future for me. This means that my life has meaning. I was put on this planet for a reason. I'm not here by chance. Psalms 139 is a great passage to read that reminds us that God knew us when we were still in our mom's womb. He has created us for a purpose. The fun part is spending our life discovering it. It's a journey, and it's not always easy, but we know that God is in it. He is there working with us to discover our purpose. 

So enjoy your journey and go live out your purpose!
