Topic: The Purpose of God for You [Billy Graham Devotional 10 May 2019]
Everything comes from God alone. Everything lives by his power, and everything is for his glory. To him be glory evermore. — Romans 11:36 (TLB)
Have you ever wondered why God placed us on this planet? What our purpose is in being here? It is because God is love. There may be life on other planets, but I believe man is unique in the sense that he was created in the image of God. God created on this planet as it were “little gods” whom He could love and who would return love to Him. Reverently speaking, God was lonely. He wanted someone to love and who would return love to Him. That sounds incredible, but the Bible tells us that God loved, and so He created and put us on this planet.
Prayer for the day: Freely I love You, divine God, who daily brings joy to my soul.
