25 Bible Verses About Purpose of Man
Today we will be dealing with 25 bible verses about the purpose of man. There is a purpose for every man on earth. Until that purpose is discovered and chased, a man will amount to nothing in life. This is all about knowing who God has destined you to become and running with the vision of the Lord for your life.
A man needs to know the plan of God for His life. The scripture said, I know the plans I have for you, they are the plans of good and not evil to give you an expected end. Yes, the plan is good, but you must know what exactly the good plan is. There is something God wants you to do. And until you discuss the purpose of your existence, you are just occupying space with no significant impact.
When a man knows the plan of God for his life, he learns how to run by that plan. The plan of God for a man’s life is not seen unless by revelation. The book of Habakkuk 2:2Then the LORD replied: “Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it. For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it lingers, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay.
A man that has discovered the purpose of his existence will not run around looking for what is not lost. When things are not going as expected, his gaze will be on the vision the Lord has shown him and he won’t be swayed by the present situation around him. You see why the purpose of a man is so important to his existence. To help people find their purpose in life we have highlighted 25 bible verses about the purpose of man.
