1. Everyone's life is driven by something, be it guilt, anger, fear, materialism, the need for approval, etc.
2. But the greatest peace and happiness comes from a purpose driven life. Knowing God's purpose for your life gives meaning to it.
3. People who don't know their purpose try to do too much, causing unnecessary stress. Rick Warren warns to never confuse activity with productivity.
4. Focusing your activities on your purpose simplifies your life and provides motivation and passion.
So, I am going to claim God's promise, recorded by His prophet Isaiah, "You, Lord, give perfect peace to those who keep their purpose firm and put their trust in you." (Isaiah 26:3)
