Do you wonder why you are on earth? Ever wish you knew what you are supposed to be doing? Working hard to discover life purpose?
You were not put on this earth to promote your personality or uniqueness. You were put on this earth to fulfill the contract you have with your Maker. How did you get in contract with Him? By being born with His image stamped on your image.
What’s in the contract?
To use your life experiences, personality, gifts, and material blessings to do the work He sent you to do. He uses the positive and the negative to prepare you for the work. Both the good seasons and the ill teach you, and form your character to better take up the work. He uses that which you learn from Him, as well as from your adversaries. Nothing is lost. Everything has value. This is truly living with NO regrets. It is not about what happens to you. It is what you tell yourself about what happened.
Do you know who put you here, and why?
Psalm 139:13 says, “For You (God) created my inmost being (soul and spirit); you knit me together in my mother’s womb.” This is when the contract was sealed, the moment He breathed Life into your soul. His image being reflected in yours is all you need to know about Who the Creator is. Without Him, you have no Life.
Are you in breach of Spiritual Contract? What is keeping you from fulfilling the purpose for you life?
Have you forgotten Who created you? Have you rejected the relationship He created you to have with Him? Or are you not renewing the fallen self, in order to become aware of this pure and fulfilled image that is His.
Ignorance is the biggest characteristic of the heathen state. Blindness to one’s created state, one’s belonging to the Creator is a hallmark of the person that is in breech of contract. It is impossible to know one’s self and one’s work, except in the light of God
Knowledge and awareness is that hallmark of the person who is in keen relationship with their Creator. God’s Truth, the Scriptures, teaches a man the true knowledge both of himself and of God.
For those in relationship with Him ~ Your Maker provides, at all times, all that you need to keep the contract. You need not wait to find your work. That work was programmed into you when God knit your body, mind and spirit in your mother’s womb. It has always been with you. It is not waiting to be revealed by God, however we can squelch the awareness of it, by living or thinking incorrectly.
The Apostle Paul tells the followers of Yeshua Messiah in Colossae, that they cannot truly understand the work (or any other spiritual matter) without having aligned themselves with their Creator. “…and have put on the new self who is being renewed to a true knowledge according to the image of the One who created him.”
It didn’t require having a certain mother, father, home life, education, or a list of material things. It exists, period, to all who renew themselves with true knowledge based on the image of Him, stamped on our soul. But it does require a putting off of the old (pre-relationship) man, and take on a new self. That means thinking in present tense about our work. It means acknowledging the value in all life experiences, the value of seasons of life, the pre-existence of provision for all our needs, by Him.
The real question is in THIS moment:
- Have you rejected this contract by rejecting the Creator?
- Are you doing the work He gave you, now?
“From beginning to end, the Scriptures reveal that the foremost desire of God’s heart is not our salvation but rather the glory of his own name. God’s glory is what drives the universe; it is why everything exists. The world is not present, spinning and sailing in the universe so that you and I might be saved or lost but so that God might be glorified in his infinite perfections.” – Matt Chandler, The Explicit Gospel
