Pslam 138:8 (NLT)
The Lord will work out his plans for my life—for your faithful love, O Lord, endures forever. Don’t abandon me, for you made me.
Last week we explored our manual of life informs us that God predestined and purposed us for greatness. Therefore, start communing with God through prayer so you can get closer to your purpose. This week the Bible reminds us that we are not an accident.
Consider the following:
Rick Warren wrote, “while there are illegitimate parents, there are no illegitimate children” (p.12). In this quote, he is stating, God used human vessels to create you, thus you are not a mistake and you have been purposed. Despite what angry parents, teachers, or others may have mislead you to believe, you are purposed. Whether you are in a season of confusion, content, or confidence about your purpose, God has not abandoned you. Petition God for your purpose because God thought of you before this world. For example, Ephesians 1:4 indicates, “Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes” (NLT). This reveals to us that God was thinking of us before he even made the world. Hence, why do you think God does not only want us to be successful? Why do you think God wants us to be unhappy? The answer is, He does not. God wants us to purposely flourish and have joy. Today, I encourage you as our scripture reminds us that our God will work out the plan He created for our lives. We need to do our part.
As previously discussed, the first step is to have a relationship with Him and the second step is to commune with God through prayer so you can get closer to your purpose. Today’s step reminds us to trust in God’s word that God’s love endures forever. Always remember God is love, meaning God knows love, shows love, understands love, and is faithfully unwavering in love with us.
