According to His Purpose
 
“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28
 
Late Chadwick Boseman, in his 2018 commencement speech to graduates at Howard University, emphasized the importance of finding a purpose and being able to speak up and support others. In his rousing address to the class of 2018, he remarked, “Purpose is an essential element of you. It is the reason you are on the planet at this particular time in history. Your very existence is wrapped up in the things you are here to fulfill. Whatever you choose for a career path, remember, the struggles along the way are only meant to shape you for your purpose.”
 
What is our purpose here on earth? While great minds from the ancient past have tried to answer that question, Apostle Paul plainly and profoundly stated in Romans 8:28 that we are “called according to God’s purpose” and not our own. God, in His foreknowledge, has designed a plan and a purpose for our lives. 
 
During my formative years at Roorkee Inter College, I often wondered about God’s purpose for my life. Late Dorothy Watts was the commencement speaker for our high school graduation at Roorkee. In her speech that day, which is still fresh in my mind, she helped us understand how we can discern God’s purpose for our lives. To help our young minds grasp this divine reality, she came up with an acronym for GOLD, 
G – God, Keep God first in all things. 
O – Obedience, Obey God’s laws
L – Loyalty, Be loyal to your high calling 
D – Determination – Be determined till the very end. 
 
To the graduates of 2022, destiny is not as important as the journey. Let your purpose merge with God’s, for His thoughts and plans are always higher, bigger, and greater than ours. 
 
Prayers and Blessings,
John Daniel
