We exist for God’s purpose not our own. Sure, we existed in the mind of God before He said, “Let there be light.” What a crazy thought but true. Yet, God does not exist so we can live happy, contented, and fulfilled lives. We exist for His pleasure and the fulfillment of His plan in and through us.
When we surrender our lives to His purpose and delight; we are then filled with joy and fulfillment. Our joy comes from being in His purpose. Our joy is generated from the joy that flows from His heart. It is as if our arteries are connected to His heart and the joyful fulfillment we experience is a result of being connected to the God of all creation.
Our circumstances do not determine our joy but being in a powerful life-flowing relationship with Father, Jesus, and Holy Spirit gives us joy that is beyond any description. It all starts by surrendering to Him and to His purpose for your life.
My prayer: Lord, let your desires be fulfilled in my life by the power of the Holy Spirit.
