January 25: Find Out Who You Are

GOD’S REMINDER: “It is in Me that you will find out who you are and what you are living for.” (Ephesians 1:11, reworded for God’s Reminder)

NOTE TO SELF: Woe is me. Woe is me. I don’t know who I am and what I’m living for.

Sound familiar?

We are a broken society because we are too often caught up in this constant need to know what we’re living for. And if we always come up empty because we’ve searched for our purpose in other places besides Christ, life truly will have no real happiness or fulfillment.

We have become a culture that denies we are God’s creation, and that leaves us here merely by chance or by accident. What’s the hope in that? How can we feel worthwhile if we are only accidents, or worse yet, derived from apes!?

More and more in this day and age, believing in God as our divine Creator is “proved” irrelevant and often negated. They have “proof”, they claim, yet their own “evidence” makes less sense than a God-created universe! While we are called silly and foolish, their agenda is more ridiculous and farfetched than the reality of God. And yet when it comes down to it, even the most devout atheists can’t deny that it had to come from…somewhere, somehow, and that maybe—just maybe—there is something Divine about who we are.

The seeking to know who we are stems from God’s DNA within us. We are conceived “knowing” Him, knowing where we come from, intimately knowing our Creator. It’s why when we begin to face the naysayers of God, we often find ourselves lost and confused, searching relentlessly for our purpose because the world has snatched Him away from us, leaving us feeling empty and abandoned.

But there is hope…

When we forget we are God’s, we will never know who we fully are. So when you ponder life’s most asked question: “What’s my purpose in life?” Look Heavenbound and be reassured that you are a child of the King of kings, the Creator of the Universe, and that He loves you more than anything else in creation! He designed you inside and out. He created you to have a relationship with Him. You can know exactly who you are by seeking your Creator.
