Life Purpose Examples from the Bible

Life Purpose Examples from the Bible

The following life purpose examples from the Bible should challenge you to use all the resources at your disposal to fulfill your life's purpose.
Moses

Moses is a great life purpose example from the Bible because he completed the job that God gave him when He called him from the middle of a burning bush saying, "Come and I will send you to Pharaoh so that you can bring My people from Egypt." (Exodus 3:10)

Moses did go to Pharaoh and he did bring the Israelites from Egypt and he can teach you not to feel unqualified for the job that God has called you to do. 

Moses probably felt unqualified because when God called him, he Him, "Who am I?" (Exodus 3:11) Moses probably asked this question because God was sending him to go to Pharaoh who was the leader of Egypt and yet at that time he was an 80 year old stammering man taking care of his father-in-law's sheep. 

However even though Moses felt unqualified for this big job that God was giving him, God answered his question of "Who am I?" (Exodus 3:11) with a very simple answer of "I will be with you." (Exodus 3:11) 

This shows us that God's presence in your life is all the qualification you need to do the job that He is calling you to do.

Therefore if you are sure that God is calling you to do a certain job, but you feel totally inept, begin doing what He wants you to do while believing that God's grace is sufficient for you because His strength is perfected by your weakness. (2 Corinthians 12:7-9) 

Nehemiah
Nehemiah is another great life purpose example from the Bible because he completed doing What God had placed in his heart to do in Jerusalem (Nehemiah 2:12) which was to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem.  

To fulfill his life's purpose, Nehemiah experienced a lot of problems. For example, his enemies persistently sent him messages asking him to meet them in the villages of the Ono so that they could harm him. (Nehemiah 6:2)

His enemies also falsely accused him or rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem so that he and the Israelites could rebel against the king. (Nehemiah 6:5-7) 

However, regardless of what his enemies did or said, Nehemiah prayed to God and continued working together with the Israelites. They were able to finish rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem in the midst of multiple problems because The people set their mind to work (Nehemiah 4:6) 

Therefore let Nehemiah's experience encourage you so that you do not focus on the problems that are trying to stop you from fulfilling your life's purpose.

Instead, set your mind to completing the work that God has placed in your heart for you to do.
