God has a fantastic plan for your life!
You are a unique and beautiful creation, handcrafted by the father of the universe in HIS OWN image. He has a distinct work for you to live out
1 Corinthians 12:28 “God arranged the member in the body, each one of them, as he chose.”
Acts 17:26 “God made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place.”
God has specifically arranged the times and places where we are born, as well as, our positions in the body of Christ. It’s a privilege to know that our existence, where we live, our country of origin…none of it is random or meaningless. It’s all for the glory of God and the edification of the body.
Esther 4:14b says, “Perhaps you have been brought to this royal position for such a time as this.”
In that verse, you can replace “royal position” with almost anything ie; city, ministerial position, period of loneliness…
Your identity is in Christ, and he has given you your life and your platform “for such a time as this.”
“Now may the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant, equip you with everything good that you may do his will, working in us that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.” (Hebrews 13:20-21)
Not only has God given us a plan, but He will provide us with all we need to live it out.
We worship a God who is alive, who is not silent, and who is not distant from us. The Holy Spirit of the living God resides inside the hearts of all who believe. This same Holy Spirit that lives in you wants to guide you into the Father’s plan. If we pray and earnestly seek the Lord, He will show us the way. We need to prayerfully discern every step we take in this life.
Jesus said that his sheep know his voice and follow him. So, let’s listen in our lives for the voice of the perfect shepherd.
Nothing compares to the joy that comes with living out the plan the creator of the universe has custom designed with YOU in mind.
Thank you for creating me with a unique plan in mind. I pray that you would reveal and make this plan clear to me. Give me wisdom and discernment in all my decisions. Help me walk worthy of the calling you’ve bestowed upon me.
In Jesus’ name I pray,
