Created To God's Purpouses

There are so many religions and New Age philosophies promote the old lie that we are divine or can become gods.Surely we will never become God.
One of the Satan promised to the first human that if they followed his advice, “you shall be as gods” (Genesis 3:5 KJV).

This desire to be a god shows up every time we try to control our circumstances, our future, and people around us. But as creatures, we will never be the Creator. God doesn’t want you to become a god; he wants you to become godly, taking on his values, attitudes, and character. We are meant to take on a God-fashioned life” (Ephesians 4:22-24 MSG).

God’s ultimate vision for our life on earth is not comfort, but to develope a character. God wants us to grow up in spiritually and become like Christ. Becoming like Christ does not mean losing your personality or becoming a mindless clone.

God created us uniqueness, so he certainly doesn’t want to destroy it. Christlikeness is about transforming the character on us, not our personality.

God wants develop the kind of our character described in the Beatitudes of Jesus, the fruit of the Spirit, like Paul and Peter (Matthew 5:1-12, Galatians 5:22-23, 1 Corinthians 13, 2 Peter 1:5-8).

Every time yo\u forget that character is one of God’s purposes for our life. You’ll wonder, “Why is this happening to me? Why am I having such a difficult time?” One answer is that life is supposed to be difficult! It’s what enables us to grow.
Many of us misinterpret Jesus’ promise of the abundant life to mean perfect health, a comfortable lifestyle, constant happiness, full realization of your dreams, and instant relief from problems through faith and prayer.

In a word, they expect the Christian life to be easy. They expect heaven on earth.

This self-absorbed perspective treats God as a genie who simply exists to serve you in your selfish pursuit of personal fulfillment. But God is not your servant, and if you fall for the idea that life is supposed to be easy, either you will become severely disillusioned or you will live in denial of reality.
We are exist for God’s purposes not our purposes.We totally belong to Him.
God gives us our time on earth to build and strengthen our character for heaven.
