God wants you to know His purpose for your life. My entire life changed when I discovered this one truth: The destiny of my life is hinged upon understanding God's eternal purpose, which He unveiled to man through His sacrificial love.

I was not aware of this powerful truth, despite the fact that I had finished my graduate studies in theology, including rewriting the 500 cardinal doctrines of the church for my thesis. Through my studies, I had learned how to investigate the great truths of the Bible and thought I knew something about almost every doctrine. I prided myself on my attempts to be an exegetical theologian, pastoring and carefully teaching the Word in Bible colleges for 17 years.

However, it wasn't until after I received the baptism of the Holy Spirit, which brought me into a greater relationship with the divine teacher, that I discovered the great truth of the critical importance of understanding God's eternal purpose.

Truth has the incredible power to free man of despair, hopelessness and a meaningless existence, and to create in him a sense of destiny and purpose that can motivate him to greatness. Jesus said of Himself, "I am … the truth" (John14:6, NKJV). To believe in Jesus involves receiving the truth of His teachings and allowing them to change your thinking, your values and your behavior.

The words of the devil—the lies that are working in your life to destroy you—are only exposed as they are contrasted with truth. In the light of truth, those lies lose their seductive power, and you are set free from destruction.

Freedom is the scriptural promise to all who walk in truth, "You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free" (John 8:32). That promise gives each of us hope to become the person God intended us to be as we walk in His truth.

If you want to know real meaning and purpose in your life, your home and your church, it is necessary that you pursue God's truth. God's eternal purpose will be realized in your individual life, in your home and ultimately in the church as you are conformed to the image of Christ through the working of the Holy Spirit in you.

If you are to fully understand God's purpose for you, you will need to cultivate a relationship with the Holy Spirit. Learn to understand who He is. Cooperate with Him as He works to fulfill God's purpose for mankind and in your life.
