A fulfilled life is about accomplishing the very purpose one was created for. Every individual is different thus we all have our Unique purpose. Our purpose is the reason why God created us.
Living a fulfilled life could there for be subdivided into finding our purpose, getting prepared and carrying out this purpose.
One can only find the purpose of which he or she has been created from the creator Jer 1:5.
The purpose for which we are created has been built into us from the very moment we were formed in our mothers womb. This is discovered through a personal relationship with God. For some, their purpose is very clear and strongly evident in form of talents or gifts. For others it take time to discover the very reason they were created.
Your purpose is the same as your calling. Individual calling could vary from pastoring to Politics and Business.
Your calling is for the benefit of The Kingdom (The Kingdom of God) Eph 2:10. Your Calling is to increase or make better the Kingdom. For instance as a Business person you are called to make money to support the growth of the kingdom, not only are you called to support the kingdom financially, Your call is also to reflect Christ in your Business activities by maintaining honesty and integrity in your dealings.
However to fulfill a calling there will always be a preparation season. Your preparation season is designed to equip you to achieve your calling. If you study the Word you will discover that everyone that fulfilled purpose had a preparation Season. Joseph’s preparation ground was his time as a slave in Portiphar’s house while Moses’ time was in the wilderness. Even Our Lord Jesus christ had a preparation season, working in his earthly father’s carpentry shop.
Living a fulfilled life therefore means finding your purpose, getting equipped for it and living out purpose for the benefit of the Kingdom.
