GOD MADE YOU FOR A HIGHER PURPOSE

​God Made You for a Higher Purpose

Robert Clive was a clerk in the East India Company. This was way back in the eighteenth century. His salary was a mere 5 pounds a year. He felt it wasn’t enough for him. And so, one day, he decided to end his life. He pointed his revolver to his head but it misfired. Then, suddenly he cried out that God had made him for a big task! After this, he joined the East India Company’s Army, and slowly, he reached the top. Robert Clive went on to become instrumental in establishing British rule in India. 
The Quran and the Hadith tell us that if God prevents a task from happening the way you had planned it, it is a clue that He wants you to do something else. The Prophet once said that when God loves a people, He tests them through difficulties. This is so that you can rethink your life, that can you re-plan your life. If your plans do not get fulfilled, it is an indication from God. It tells you that He has created you for something bigger than what you are presently involved in. God has not made you to make this world your goal and purpose and to get lost in it. He has created you to worship Him. So, instead of chasing the world, devote yourself to God-realization and inviting other people to God.

Moses was brought up in Pharaoh’s palace, but God created such conditions that his stay there could not continue. This was because God had created Moses, not to live in the palace, but for a far higher purpose, to call people to God. So, be grateful for the seeming setbacks and problems you face in life. They may be God’s way of telling you that He has some other, higher purpose.

Do Not Despair

Despair is disapproved of in the Quran because one who despairs shows that he does not trust God. When God has declared that the universe is replete with His mercy, to become dejected would mean to have no hope from God. Moreover, God’s mercies are not evident in the manner in which stones and rocks are visible. Often we seek a blessing in the present moment but God has kept it for the future, which leads to despair. We should know that God’s blessings and bounties sometimes come to us soon and at other times they come later on. It is also possible that we may not receive a blessing we desire in this world because it is meant to be enjoyed in the Hereafter. One who does not reflect on these issues would fall to despair, showing that he does not have trust in God.

Glory of God

The aim of our mission is to proclaim the glory of God. The universe of which we are part is so vast that traversing it by any man-made vehicle is impossible and this universe is also continually expanding. Galaxies, stars, planets and the solar system are all part of the cosmos. No one, however, is proclaiming the glory of the Being who made this meaningful creation. There are numerous activities and discussions taking place in the world, but nowhere is God being glorified in the true sense. The Lord and Creator of the Universe is not any person’s real concern. In reality, all that we have been endowed with—thinking, sight, hearing, speech—is truly meant for discovering God and proclaiming His glory.
