Our Ultimate Purpose In 2015

Everyone who is called by My name, whom I have created for My glory; I have formed him, yes, I have made him.” Isaiah 43:7 (NKJV)

We were all created for glory. Not for our own glory but for the glory of God. What is glory? Glory is honour, praise, worship and thanksgiving. It is what we give to someone who we see as honourable and one who is highly deserving of respect. Glory is what is given to God. We were designed and created for the glory of God. We were created to give God honour, to give Him worship and to give Him praise. 

What does all of this have to do with 2015? Our ultimate purpose in 2015 is to give God glory. Not only in this year but in the years to come. Our goal and our ambition in this year should be to give God glory in everything that we do. 2015 is a year where we will see new things and we will begin to do things that we thought we would never do. In all of this, we cannot lose focus of our main purpose and of our goal on the earth and that is to give God glory.

Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created. Revelations 4:11 (KJV)

God is worthy and deserving to receive glory. He has created us for His pleasure and His pleasure alone.We are here on earth to give God glory and to give Him pleasure whether that is through song, dance, art or poetry. Whatever talent or gift that we have, it is for the glory of God. Can we say that we are using our talents for the glory of God? Can we say that God received glory from us in 2014? Can we say that He will in 2015? Let's start off this year right by giving honour where it is due. Give God the glory!

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork. Psalm 19:1 (NKJV)

We are not the only ones who give God glory. Creation gives glory where it is due. Creation cannot deny the magnificence and the splendour of the High and Lofty One.  His majesty they can't deny. If creation can give God glory, how much more can we? We are the most treasured creation on earth designed in the very image of God. All that we do is for His glory.

How can we give God glory in 2015? We can give Him glory by recognising that He is the One who gives us the ability to succeed, by worshipping Him through prayer and reading His word, by giving Him thanks and by being who He has called us to be. 

Let 2015 be a year where we look back and say that God was truly glorified in our lives, in our work, in our speech and in our relationship with Him. Let 2015 be a glory year!
