Everything God made was created with a special design and function. If this is true of the animal and plant kingdoms, then how much more true is it that you have a special purpose in this world? You were not born simply to occupy space — to eat food, go to the bathroom, sleep, and get up the next morning to start the same dull, boring routine all over again. No! There is a reason you are here on this earth. You have a God-assigned, God-given purpose.
You were not born simply to occupy space!
Remember, Ecclesiastes 3:1 says, “To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.” According to this verse, if you are “under the heaven,” then you have a “purpose”! You are not here by accident! There is a great Designer who planned every detail of who you are and the glorious plan you are to fulfill!
When a person never locks into his God-given purpose or assignment in life, he wanders aimlessly from one thing to the next. This is the reason unbelievers drink, use drugs, and frequently go from one relationship to another. They are trying to fill that hole they feel deep inside.
This is also why believers aren’t satisfied with their marriages and constantly trade jobs. They are seeking to fill a hole that can only be filled by knowing they are doing what God wants them to do.
Money cannot fill that hole. Relationships cannot fill that hole. Jobs cannot fill that hole. That hole is only filled when you step into God’s will and have the satisfaction of knowing you’re right smack dab in the middle of His plan for your life.
Are you doing what God wants you to do? You won’t be happy doing anything else.
I guarantee you that if you’re trying to fill that hole with your marriage, you will be constantly dissatisfied with that relationship. If you’re trying to fill that hole with money, your riches will never satisfy you, no matter how much money you accumulate.
In fact, if you are struggling in any area of your life — your identity, your job, your marriage, or your finances — and it seems that nothing ever satisfies you, perhaps you need to ask a deeper question. Are you doing what God wants you to do?
You won’t be happy doing anything else.
