He has made everything beautiful in its time. He also has planted eternity in men’s hearts and minds [a divinely implanted sense of a purpose working through the ages which nothing under the sun but God alone can satisfy], yet so that men cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end. (Ecclesiastes 3:11 AMP)
Man (the human race) was not created for time as we know it; man was created for time as God knows it because man was created to live in the realm of God. God did this because He desired (and still desires) to fellowship with man and fulfil His purpose on earth through man. God intends for humanity as a whole to carry out His purpose and execute His grand design on the earth. To this end, God being an eternal Spirit, created man as a replica of Himself and made him His representative on earth.
God’s original intention has always been to exercise His dominion on earth through humanity – and He has not changed His mind. God wants to establish His kingdom on earth just as it is in heaven; and he has chosen to do it through us. Needless to say, this is a very big assignment that is beyond any single person.
So, God in His infinite wisdom has apportioned various portions of this eternal assignment to every human being in every age and time. This unique individual portion of eternity – packaged in the capsule of time and assigned by God to every man – is what we have come to know as destiny, a divinely implanted sense of a purpose working through the ages which nothing under the sun but God alone can satisfy. It is the conscious discovery, consistent pursuit and continuous fulfilment of this destiny that gives life a meaning.
