How do these verses reveal that you have a purpose?
In what way are you called to live out your purpose?
No one knows you better than your Creator. He knows how you think, what you like, and what you would dream of. He knows this, because you have been built by him. You are purpose-built. There is no one that can accomplish the dreams and mission that he has assigned to you.
Many Christians live with a sense of defeat. Their greatest goal is to stay away from major sins, keep themselves and their families safe, and then make it to heaven. But, it's possible that they have missed their purpose for living. God never created you to be a trophy on his shelf. He lovingly shared his authority with you and gave you a mission. Therein lies your purpose. (2 Corinthians 5:17-18; 1 Peter 2:9)
Your purpose is not to eat, sleep, work and then make it to heaven. On no… you were built for so much more. Your purpose involves eternity. You were designed to live for what lasts. In other words, real purpose comes when you give yourself over to Jesus and his plans. He has called you to bring people into relationship with himself… to declare his goodness to a world that is lost. This kind of work will have an impact into eternity. Now, that is living with purpose.
Ephesians 2:10 - For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Do you ever live without purpose? Sometimes, you just aimlessly stumble around trying to find worthwhile things to do? How about finding your created purpose? It's time to talk to your Creator. Ask him to speak to you and remind you of his plans for your life. You might need to lay down your "good" plans in order to receive his "best" plan for your life. Ask the Father for a specific way in which you can live for eternal things today.
