God is our personal source of ultimate confidence and perfect purpose!

If we live each day placing our confidence and faith in our friends, our stuff, our popularity, the money or power of our parents, or anything else which will someday cease to exist, we will be disappointed because all of these things will eventually fail and pass away. As we learn more about how faithful God is to us, we realize that He loves us more than anyone; and certainly, more than any thing has ever loved us! As we thank Him for the family, friends, and material things He has blessed us with, we are reminded to place our faith in Him and not people or things which pass away.

Then, our life gains an everlasting purpose rather than some fleeting, fading, and senseless purpose which means nothing beyond our lifetime! 

We learn the rejoicing and wisdom of the Psalmist: “…Praise the Lord, O my soul! While I live will I praise the Lord; I will sing praises to my God while I have my being. Put not your trust in princes, in a son of man, in whom there is no help. When his breath leaves him, he returns to his earth; in that very day his previous thoughts, plans, and purposes perish.” (Psalms 146:1-5)  

Think about what we are working for—good grades, more money, better friends, more toys. Will these things or people love us like God does? No, it is impossible for something mortal and earthly to love eternally because they all perish! What God does for us—and we do for God and others—will outlive us and bring glory to Him. Praise God because we may live confidently and for a purpose which lasts beyond our mortal lives!
