Daily Devotion for 6/16/11 Do you know why you're living

Good Morning folks...My prayer today is that the Lord will keep you in perfect peace. Here's today's devotion

Today's Topic: Do you know why you're living
Scripture Text: John 18:37

"For this reason I was born, and for this I came into the world."

Jesus knew exactly why He lived. "For this reason I was born, and for this I came into the world to testify to the truth." That's what He thought about, prayed about, planned for, worked toward, sacrificed for, died and rose again for, and finally accomplished. By fulfilling his destiny He changed the world forever. So, do you know your destiny? What are you doing to achieve it? "We do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." (Ephesians 2:10) Does that sound like a life of aimless wandering with no known destination? the Bible says: "A man's heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps" (Proverbs 16:9) Plan well, but always stay open to God's direction. "All the days ordained for me were written in you book before one of them came to be." (Psalms 139:16) God's plan for your life was set before you were a twinkle in your parents' eyes! If you fail to follow His path you'll miss His best for your life. The Bible is full of examples of those who crashed and burned at some point. King Saul is a great example.

Recalling it, David, his successor, prayed:

#1 "I desire to do your will" (Psalms 40:8): Your desires are the driving forces in life, so make sure you're in harmony with God.
#2 "Teach me to do your will" (Psalms 143:10) When it comes to doing God's will, the Psalmist acknowledged he needed God's help. You do too.

I am praying for you today!
