God’s Purpose for Man
so shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man. (Proverbs 3:4)
God’s first purpose for man is fellowship. Fellowship is mutual sharing—God wanted someone to talk to. The next purpose for man is dominion—God wanted someone to govern this earth and mankind was made for that purpose. The next purpose is to bear fruit—God wants to reveal His potential through mankind by you and I bearing much fruit for His glory. He is the vine and you are the branch. The fruit comes off you (the branch) so that God can reveal who He is (the vine) through you.
God manifests His favor in your life so He can expose His nature and His ability. He wants to expose who He is on this earth. God wants us to maximize our abilities. We are to live out all God has called us to live out. Why? Because you have a gift in you which is going to be used for the betterment of mankind.
You have a role to play in this end-time generation, and you will bring an impact to the industry or place where you are working. You will advance the Kingdom and cause your particular sphere of influence to line up with the Kingdom of God, because it’s all about the Kingdom. God has intended for the Church (you and I) to manage this earth. You and I have been sent here at this particular time to accomplish this.
Dear God, I desire to fulfill my role in this end-time generation to advance Your Kingdom. Thank you for the gifts You’ve placed in me. I believe Your favor is manifesting through my life to bring your truth and love to those who need to know You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
