You Are on Purpose

For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb.
Psalm 139:13

The God who created you for Himself has never made any mistakes. There have been no failures or flaws in His plan and program for you. Genesis 1:1 says, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Since this is true, there can be no such thing as an accident. In this first verse of the Bible, the theory of naturalism is proven incorrect. Naturalism states that the supernatural does not exist and that the world and its inhabitants evolved by chance into what they are today.

There is no room for chance if you believe God is Creator and Sustainer. People who believe the world came about by chance are simply saying that at one time nobody and nothing existed, but somehow that nothing then produced everything! It’s important that we see the flaws in this worldview because many of us live by a philosophy of luck or chance when actually God sovereignly allows things to happen in our lives for His purpose. In fact, God created each one of us on purpose—with a plan in mind. When we don’t connect with His purpose, our lives lose their meaning.

If you know that God purposefully created and sustains you, you know you are not a mistake. You are not the coming together of random forces in the universe. Rather, you are the direct result of God’s power and work.

You have a divine purpose. Live it.
