Many people — including some believers — do not have a clear personal and specific understanding of God’s purpose for their lives.
What is God’s specific purpose or part for you and your lifetime on this earth?
God sent you here to this world for a purpose, and nothing else in the world can ever completely satisfy you apart from fulfilling the God-given purpose for your life.
God’s Purpose Revealed in Love
As sons and daughters of God Almighty, our specific purpose will be a part in His Purpose and Plan for the world. His unique gifting within us enables us to be and do that which He has planned.
Specific training will sharpen and prepare us to use our gifts and abilities by turning them into skills to accomplish God’s purposes in this world.
Our sense of fulfillment and deep satisfaction in this life are in part dependent upon our involvement in God’s purpose for our lives.
A person who is not at some level directly involved in God’s specific purpose for his or her life, may feel a sense of dissatisfaction and unfulfillment in their life.
Those who truly fall in love with God can know the purpose of their lives by that which God places in their purified hearts. God-given desires within us give us direction toward accomplishing the purpose of our lives.
Within a true in-love relationship with God, we can come to know our specific purpose.
Without being in love with God, we will lack the certainty of knowing.
The assurance of alignment with God’s Purpose and call gives us the tenacity to persist through difficulties in accomplishing the tasks at hand.
Knowing and walking in God’s Purpose gives meaning and joy to our lives.
Preparation Begins in Childhood
Gifts and talents are planted by God into us before birth and must grow into maturity.
Childhood play and education should be a part of developing and growing gifts and talents into abilities to do the works of God’s Purpose in life.
Childhood game-playing provides training, meaning, and joy to our immature lives.
As people mature from the normal play of childhood into adults their lives can seem meaningless, if they are not in love with God.
Without the leadership of the presence of God and His love in their lives, this transition can create a troubled time of purposelessness that can lead to suicide or dangerous actions.
Many young people that are not in love with God and therefore do not know the God-given purpose of their lives continue to play in adult life.
They remain dependent on playing games to add meaning and excitement to their lives. An increasing number of people today spend most or all their years of life playing games to find satisfaction and fulfillment in life. Some continue to play games just for entertainment and to occupy their idle minds.
When playing becomes unacceptable or impossible, insignificance, dissatisfaction, and unfulfillment can create a meaningless life.
Some may either end their lives or turn their relationships, business, ministry, or whatever into a competitive game of striving to do more or have bigger or to be better than others in some way.
In other words, the game of life becomes about who can make the most money or have the biggest ministry or the greatest sexually relational life or always win arguments and conflicts.
Other things used to bring meaning or gratification to life are spectator sports, gambling, dancing, drinking, drugs, overeating, online media, video games, and much more.
Even religious activities can be used to keep us so busy with programs that we miss truly being in love with God.
None of these things are bad or evil within themselves. Most all things in life are good unless used outside the will of God to replace being in love with God and His great purpose for our lives.
Things that are used to replace that which God has prepared for us become false gods or idols in our lives.
And of course, there is a need for rest or diversion from the labors of life. Even God rested on the seventh day of creation. Rest is a very good thing from God.
Our one real competition in life is with the devil. Satan sends his many demonic spirits to occupy our hearts and minds with anything other than the in-love relationship with God.
Real-life fulfillment and satisfaction are found in being in love with God and thereby knowing and abiding in the will and plan of God for our lives.
The New Garden Life is the reality of becoming present with God now in this life by falling in love with Him.
Abiding in Jesus and Jesus abiding within us leads to the real life of Christ Jesus in us finishing His work of establishing the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven. (John 15:4-8, Colossians 1:2-2, 1 Corinthians 3:16).
Finishing in the New Garden, Kingdom of God Life
The old life is passing away increasingly faster in these days of world history.
Like a perfect jewel or a fine piece of furniture, the New Garden World requires a long time to be formed.
An elaborate fine piece of wood furniture is formed from hardwood trees that have grown over many years and are sawn, carefully shaped, and fitted together.
Then it is hand sanded to a perfectly smooth finish. Finally, coats of varnish are applied and sanded until the final finish is perfectly smooth. The finish wax or polish is buffed until just the right luster shows the beauty of the wood beneath.
Likewise, a perfect jewel must have a long severe process of being formed by intense heat and pressure into a rough very hard clear stone.
Then it must be cut to shape, facetted, and perfectly ground and polished to beautifully reflect light.
A remnant group of God’s people are entering the finishing stages of man’s long journey of preparation to be part of the seed people in the world made new as the New Garden of God.
The Hidden Treasure of the New Garden
Like the man that found the hidden treasure in a field and sold all that he had to buy that field, we are going to sell all our past life with all its deterrents of doubts, fears, and limited faith.
Finding the hidden New Garden way of life with God and other people that are also in love with Him, we will gladly sell our old life to become the New Garden treasure in the field.
This is God’s Plan and Purpose for this world to become as it is in heaven on earth.
This is that which Jesus has purchased and provided. This is the New Garden Kingdom of God/ Kingdom of Heaven on earth.
This is back to the original plan of the Garden of Eden with mankind in His rightful place.
This is the in-love fulfillment of all the law and the prophets. This is the fullness of the Glory of God filling the earth.
This is the New Jerusalem Bride of Christ fully joined with King Jesus as Head securely upon the shoulders of the Body of Christ. Jesus will then present the kingdoms of this world back to Father God.
New Garden Community
God’s Spiritual supernatural and our practical life are becoming one. No longer is there to be secular and spiritual life.
God in and with us is the wisdom and power of love to develop the skills and abilities to live well in communities of righteousness, peace, and joy by The Spirit of God.
Spirit God will bring together communities of families around the Spirit-natural activities and needs of life.
Godly businesses involving food, water, income, housing, and other needs by growing, producing, trading, manufacturing, servicing, or doing whatever God leads to be done.
With the presence of God continuously filling the hearts and minds of the people, communion with God and one another is continuous.
Church is no longer one or two days set apart for God. A building is not provided for weekly worship separate from home and business.
Homes and business buildings all become holy places of God for worship, family life, and business. Businesses and home buildings will provide space for gatherings.
As the communities become cities, huge buildings, stadiums, and whatever will be used for gatherings to worship and praise God as He leads. That which is now known as Corporate America will become God’s Kingdom Community.
The New Garden communities will not look the same across the nation or the world.
The Kingdom of God involves all life and all nations and all will appear and connect by Spirit God as a worldwide body of many different organs for different functions and with various needs.
Start wherever you are with whatever you have available to become an in-love commune of God with two or three or as many as will come together with God in Christ Jesus as an in-love cell or group sharing life in love with God.
“……’You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,’ and ‘your neighbor as yourself.’” Luke 10:27
”Jesus said to him, ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”” Matthew 22:37-40
“Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” Luke 12:32
Love never fails — and His Kingdom never ends.
Be made whole in His love,
