You may say, “I’ll never amount to anything. Nothing is going well in my life. It is not ever going to get any better. So, why am I here?”
First, is it completely true what you are saying about yourself? Can you really say, “Never, nothing, ever”? Only, if you reject your Creator, Savior and Lord. Without Him you are nothing, you never will be anything and you will suffer for it in eternity. He has something better for you; an abundant and eternal life!
Second, even if all you say about yourself is true, the reason you are here hasn’t changed. We are all here for the same reason; to glorify our Creator! He is the One who gives purpose, meaning and value to our lives.
Nothing else matters. It doesn’t matter who you are, what you may have done or how many negative circumstances you may experience in life. The only thing that matters is whether you are living your life to bring glory to God.
You don’t have to be smart, popular, talented, successful, wealthy or healthy to glorify God. Fear Him. Trust Him. Obey Him. Love Him. Worship Him. Serve Him. Thank Him. Declare Him.
That’s, why you are here. That's why you are still here.
1 Timothy 1:17 “Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.”
