“To the Praise of His Glory.” (Ephesians 1:13,14)

God’s choosing, His plan, and His blessings are determined by His will. Everything that happens is according to his wishes. The people he chooses are determined solely by His will not merit. The blessings He distributes are determined by His grace and His plan not earned—they are not rewards.

Ultimately the aim of all God’s action and plans is His glory. He is not attempting to earn glory for himself, but rather the only fitting result of God creation is that His praise and His glory be magnified.

Understanding this truth is important to really understanding our purpose and meaning in life. God’s will for our lives is much more about Him and His glory than it is about us. Our daily decisions gain clearer perspective in this light. Both in the way we should choose what we do with our days and also in how insignificant many of our decisions ultimately are in the grand scheme of things. We need to balance the truth that most of our daily decisions are simultaneously vital and yet inconsequential. Often, how we choose is less important than how we then live out those choices.
