I recently began reading a short book by Mike Breaux called Making Ripples. Breaux brings up the point that either we have a destiny and a purpose or our life is merely accidental.
If we are an accident, born with nothing, and for nothing, than we end up with nothing also. That means that anything in between also results in nothing.
Some have labeled this current generation as the 'whatever generation'. If there is no destiny or purpose, then there is no truth, and no rules, and no right or wrong-its just a big 'whatever'.
67% of students cheat on exams-whatever. 66% drink alcohol-whatever. 56% shoplift-whatever. Sex before marriage?-whatever. Walk doesn't match your talk?-whatever. Responsibility?-whatever. Suicidal thoughts?-whatever. Hunger, poverty, AIDS?-whatever.
But God is not a 'whatever' kind of God. He is a Destiny Maker who wants to pour out his love and leadership into your life. He said through the prophet Jeremiah, "For I know the plans I have for you. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future." Jer. 29:11
That sure doesn't sound like a 'whatever' kind of existence to me. He will keep on changing us, molding us in order to create in us 'whatever' He desires of us or requires of us.
This generation CAN stop saying 'whatever' and begin to become 'whatever' God has created and designed you to become if you just submit and yield to Him.
