Reason for Being

Or “Why am I here?”

Or have you ever felt worthless – as if you didn’t count – and that the world would be “just the same without me”? And that you “make absolutely no difference in the course of the world”?

Well,

Last week I wrote of the Power of Prayer. Prayer is, indeed, the single most powerful tool at our disposal. It is our own way of conversing with God – both asking and listening.

Too often people get “off course” by listening to the wrong people: peers, competitors, the pop culture icons who so influence our behavior, false idols and malicious people. What we

This ‘voice’ is the voice of God in us – helping us, guiding us, steering us toward His destiny for us.

When you defy that voice, you are going to pay a heavy penalty. The Consciousness of Guilt is clear to all. Just look at Scott Peterson denying he killed his wife and unborn son – or Bill Clinton denying he “ever had sex with that woman.” Their guilt is clear on their faces – and they have somehow tried to defy God and what is right – and they

Now, what is the purpose of your life? Is there one?

Yes, indeed, there is. Every single one of us has a purpose; the key is figuring it out.

It does not have to be as a president or as a business tycoon or someone famous; perhaps being a good parent, a good worker, a good citizen, a good friend to someone at a key moment in their life – or even something seemingly insignificant could be your destiny.

Have no fear:

You have a duty to ‘listen’ to His guidance through that little ‘voice’ – as well as to ask for help.

America is at a crisis point these days. Too many people have chosen to listen to the wrong people uttering the wrong messages.

To save this country we need to re-dedicate ourselves to listening only to the ‘voice’ delivering the right message.
