What is it that I should do? What is my purpose? How do I best achieve this purpose? In reading Palms 119:41-88, these are some of the questions that God’s Word will answer. The only real way to receive full happiness or perfect liberty is to live by God’s Word. It comforts in difficult times and is the true and faithful guide in the path to peace.
The purpose of our living is to serve God and enjoy our relationship with Him. A personal relationship with Jesus Christ gives us the liberty to do what we ought to do. Anyone in need of rescue can reach out to Christ for help.
Going through difficulty allows us to see the goodness of God and bring us back to obedience. Like steel being hammered, pounded, polished, and finished to make an intricate piece of equipment, our difficulties prepare us as an instrument to perform God’s intricate tasks.
To be a hero in doing God’s work, we must obey His call. God has a plan for our life so even during difficulty keep going with a focus on the promised blessing. Live with the characteristics of a godly life by spending time reading His Word, understanding how to apply it, being committed to prayer, and being thankful for the wonders of His creation. It takes patience and perseverance and by turning everything over to Him in prayer, we can be assured of achieving the purpose that He has for us.
Pray for the opportunity to experience a deeper relationship with God by daily being guided by His Word and being thankful in all circumstances. Each day can be amazing because of who He is and who we are; an important name in history – one of His children.
