There’s a reason why you are here!

14 March 2012 No Comment

It seems that most people spend their entire lives without ever asking themselves if there could be a reason why they are here in this world. Why were they born in this generation and live in their particular country? Some people might think that it’s just a coincidence, that their parents probably made a mistake, not taking the right precautions to avoid pregnancy, and so they are now in this world, having to struggle on their own to survive or just trying to make sense of their lives. What a sad prospect!

The truth is that nobody is here by chance, no matter what were the circumstances that contributed to their mother’s pregnancy. We’re all part of a divine plan! Today there are more scientists who study the universe, or human body, and realize that every existing thing is so perfect that it could not have created itself! They now say that, behind creation, there’s an “Intelligent Design“, which means that there must be the hand of a Creator! The Bible says that “God created the heavens and stretched them out, spread out the earth and the things it produces; He gives breath to the people that are on it and spirit to those who walk on it” (Isaiah 42:5).

The question is: If there is a God who has created you and put you on this earth, what’s His purpose in this? Being in Athens, the historic cradle of human philosophy, the apostle Paul was once talking to “certain Epicurean and Stoic philosophers” (Acts 17:18), who were eager to know what he thought about human existence.

Standing in the Areopagus (a theater of philosophical discussions), Paul made a speech which astonished all listeners. Among other things, he said: “God, who made the world and all things therein, does not live in temples made with hands, and is not served by human hands, as though He needed anything, since is He who gives to all life, breath and all things “(Acts 17:24,25).

In other words, the One who created us does not need our religions, for it is He who gives us life and the very breath that keeps us alive, and it’s us that need Him! Paul then added a truth which would be good to reflect upon: “He has made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, having determined the times before appointed, and the boundaries of their habitation; that they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after Him, and find Him, though He be not far from every one of us: for in Him we live, and move, and have our being” (Acts 17:26-28)

What this is saying is that God determined from the beginning the time and place where you would be born, and He has given you the ability to “feel” or experience the realities of this world, in order to help you find in Him the true reason you’re here. The Word of God says that “We are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them” (Ephesians 2:10).

In other words, long before you were born, God had prepared a plan for your life and there’s something good that only you can do in this world! Science has discovered that there are no two individuals exactly alike in the world. There may be those who physically resemble each other, but we know that even twins, who look identical in everything, actually have a different fingerprint. That’s why they still use a fingerprint to identify individuals, because there’s no one in the entire world who has it exactly like yours. There has never been, nor ever will be! This is because you are destined to leave your personal mark on this world, doing something good, unique and precious, that no one else will ever do in your place!

Just think, your life has a purpose! It’s not a monotonous waste of time that goes from the cradle to the grave without a reason to be. Instead, you were “created for good works, which God prepared beforehand” for you, even before you were born! Isaiah said: “The Lord called me from the womb; He pronounced my name since my mother’s womb” (Isaiah 49:1). He then went on to describe the qualities and skills that he had been equipped with to fulfill his destiny, God’s call for his life.

And you? What have you been equipped with? What are your gifts and talents? And what’s the reason God made you that way? Don’t despise yourself, but be aware that you are “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Ps. 139:14) for a specific purpose, God’s call for your life!

Your life is not meant to be mediocre and meaningless, but you are destined to make an important difference in this world! Your task now is not only to discover what God’s plan for your life is, but above all to fulfill it!
