Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. (Genesis 12:1-3 KJV)
What is your life journey like? Every moment we are living on this earth is a journey to eternality. We cannot live this life without purpose.
Let’s look the life of Abraham, a father of great nation. Even Abraham didn’t reach the great purpose of life during his lifetime, God used him to start this long journey with Him. Throughout the Book of Genesis, we see this journey has begun to take place. Hebrews 11:8-11 says, “By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise: For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God. Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.”
Hebrews 11:40 says, “God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.” God cannot just give us the purpose of life until we would build our desires in our hearts. When we’d define our desires in our hearts, God would begin to put the great purpose in our lives.
Most people would misunderstand the will of God in today’s churches. The words blessing and prosperity are not related to how we can become rich. Please don’t misunderstand that Christian cannot be rich. These two words usually related to everything in us, such as body, soul and spirit. God wants us to be in healthy living and enjoy life while we are living in this world. He also wants us to discover the great purpose for our individual life. Even we couldn’t reach the purpose of life, we could start our journey with Him and pass onto the next generation.
