“The purpose of creation was for God to be glorified by man being created in His image. The purpose of salvation is for God to be gloried by the rebirth of man in the image of Jesus.” This quote from Dr Darryl Craft reflects a study from John Piper on Isaiah 43 and is one of the more impactful analysis of the purpose of creation that I have heard in a while.
God has always had a plan for each of us, and this plan always comes back to the glorification of himself. Whether your life is going well, or you are facing struggles or concerns, remember that God will never leave you or forsake you. You are part of His purpose and plan. You have not been forgotten, but rather you are meaningful to your creator because you reflect His glory. Stay close to Him, and you will stay in His will.
