Have You Discovered Your BIG WHY?
“Instead, be concerned above everything else with the Kingdom of God and with what he requires of you, and he will provide you with all these other things.”
Matthew 6:33 Good News Bible
Have you discovered your BIG WHY? Before I came to Christ the one question I had about life was why am I here? I had been very successful up to that point achieving success in my work and attaining higher levels of position where I worked.
We had a beautiful home in the suburbs, two cars and two beautiful children. Our marriage was very good.
But through all that I had that one nagging BIG question on my mind. Why am I here on planet earth? What is my purpose in life?
If it's being successful in the workplace, earning an excellent income, living in a wonderful home, with two beautiful children and a good marriage with a caring and loving wife then I missed something along the way!
It was none of those things! And it wasn't until someone sat down with me and shared the Gospel with me that I understood there truly was a purpose for me here on planet earth! Something significant and important to be accomplished through my life!
I prayed a prayer to receive Jesus that night 39 years ago and it was then that I knew there was a plan for me. The person that prayed with me to receive Christ didn't tell me what the purpose was but I knew within me I now have one and God would show me. And He has!
You may have discovered your BIG WHY, but if you haven't you want to discover it. For every day that passes it's a lost opportunity.
One thing I learned is that God's plan for my life is not about me. It's about Him. It's about His things, His plans and purposes for me.
Our lives are to be lived walking out His plans and purposes. Doing the Word and doing what He says is what that means.
If you reverence and take care of God's things he will take care of you and reveal to you your BIG WHY!
