Have you ever wondered if God has a plan for your life?
You ask, “Does God even care about me? Does He love me? Why am I here?”
Many people are trying to know the “truth” about the purpose of life; some may even hold on to different philosophical concepts that attempt to explain the hows and whys of life.
To help you reflect this Holy Week, here are 3 tips on how to find purpose in life according to Tanikala presents Kampihan:
Tip #1: Get to know Jesus Christ
Angela, Angelica’s mom, encountered God and made things right with her “married” partner. By accepting Jesus Christ as her personal Lord and Savior, she did the right thing of leaving him even when she knows it might hurt her daughter.
Angelica, who resented her mom’s decision, has forgiven her and, finally, understood that it was the right thing to do.
Knowing and following Jesus Christ and His words will surely lead you to peace and goodness, for He is “the way and the truth and the life” (John 14:6). He works all things, including your life, according to His purpose (Psalm 57:2). You can count on Him as He deeply cares for you and meets your needs (Psalm 23:1-3).
Tip #2: Acknowledge your sins and confess
Acknowledging your past mistakes and confessing your sins to the Lord will help you to get closer to Him. It brings great joy to God as He manifests Himself as ever forgiving and merciful. The Bible teaches that as you confess your sins, He is faithful and just to forgive (1 John 9:1-10).
In Kampihan, Mang Fred shared his past mistakes with his wife, confessed his sins, and repented. As a result, God blessed him with a happy life and a loving wife. The Lord has ever been faithful to him and to his family.
Just like Mang Fred, God will surely pour out His blessings upon your life if you are also faithful enough to acknowledge your sins and open your heart to His plans (Psalms 66:18).
Tip #3: Pray earnestly
Do you want to know God’s purpose for your life? Pray earnestly to God and build a relationship with Him. Speak to Him as your loving friend and sweet and caring parent and He will surely open the door of answers (Colossians 4:2-3).
As we have seen from Kampihan, Mang Fred and his family always pray together. He and his wife Nanay Anita believe that praying together as a family is a way to give thanks to God and ask for His blessings upon their lives. Prayer is about intimacy with the Lord and each other – a way of opening their hearts to Him.
Ask God in prayer so that you would receive answers to your questions about life and its very purpose (James 1:5-6). How comforting it is to know that the Author of life wants you to speak to Him!
