Father, Show me something bigger than myself, that I can be a part of, for Your glory. I believe You put in each person You created, a desire to be part of something great, even epic: an adventure! I don’t always understand this longing, but it comes back to seeking my purpose in life.
You gave Solomon a mission, delivered from his father: a charge to build a house for Your name. It was something that took great resources, many gifted craftsmen, thousands of laborers coming together, time, and hard work. And they created a masterpiece! It was incredible to behold, stood for many years, and attained a regional if not worldwide reputation that is known about today.
You called Abram out of obscurity and brought him to a land You promised to his descendants forever. He believed by faith, and worked toward Your goal, but never saw its completion. He was part of a covenant relationship with You that brought forth the greatest story ever told.
I have a desire to be part of something also: something that will bring glory to Your name. I long to do something that I cannot do alone – something I will need to rely on You for the strength and inspiration to do.
Will You show me, in Your perfect timing, what it is? I trust You are preparing me already with the gifts, talents, skills, wisdom, and resources I will need. And that when You are ready You will open my eyes to see what it is. I do not want to live my life just getting by from one day to the next.
I also know that whatever I can achieve on my own is not divine, or an epic adventure. Without You, I can do nothing. With You, I can do anything! Inspire me Lord. Empower me. Let me be part of Your great plan. Amen

That yearning to be a part of something bigger than ourselves is Father’s destiny planted in our hearts so we will fulfill His plans and purposes for us. Unfortunately so many don’t know Him and turn that into something evil, inflicting violence on others. Father’s plans always bring good to people.
