Have you ever questioned your purpose?
Have you ever been guilty of questioning whether your life has a God-given purpose? I know I have, lots of times. I’ve had times where I’ve wondered whether God really had a plan for me. Other times, I’ve felt alone and totally forgotten.
Feeling like God doesn’t care or that you’re alone is normal. The truth is, God doesn’t leave you to figure things out on your own. Instead, He is there to lead you and guide you – even if it feels crazy sometimes.
However, in those times when things are hard, or when you feel forgotten, it takes faith to believe that God still has a plan for you.
It was by faith that Abraham obeyed when God called him to leave home and go to another land that God would give him as his inheritance. He went without knowing where he was going. – Hebrews 11:8 (NLT)
Abraham was a great example of someone having faith to believe God, even when he didn’t feel it. He followed after God even when it seemed crazy. Abraham didn’t know where he was going when he started out.

Abraham Made a Choice to Follow God.
Regardless of that, he made the choice to follow God. And that took faith.
Abraham had to trust God probably when he wasn’t feeling it. He had to look past what he saw and felt and he chose to trust that God had a plan for his life.
The same is true for you. God has good plans for your life. Will you trust Him enough to let Him reveal those to you? Will you do as Abraham did and follow those plans even when it seemed crazy?
