Day #2- "What on Earth am I Here For?"
You are not an accident.
Long before you were conceived by your parents, u were conceived in the mind of God. He custom-made ur body; he chose ur race and every other feature. He also determined the natural talents u posses and the uniqueness of ur personality.
Psalm 139:15 You know me inside and out. You know exactly how I was made; how I was sculpted from nothing to SOMETHING!
God planned the days of ur life in advance, choosing the exact time of ur birth and death. The Bible says, "you saw me before I was born and scheduled each day of my life before I began to breathe." (Ps139:16)
Regardless of the circumstances of ur birth or who ur parents are... God had a plan in creating u :) He knew ur parents obtained the DNA God wanted to make you. Mant children are unplanned by their parents, but they are not unplanned by God. God's purpose took into account human error and even sin.
God was thinking of u even before he created the world. In fact, that's why he created it! Many ask, "why did he do all this? Why go thru all the trouble for us". And the answer is bc he is a God of love. He kade u so he could love u. This is a truth to build ur life on.
The bible tells us, "God is love"... not god has love... there is perfect love in the trinity, so he didnt need to create you. He wasn't lonely. But he wanted to make you in order to express his love.
Isaiah 46:3-4 I have carried u since u were born; I have taken care of u since birth. Even when ur old and ur hair is gray, I will take care of u. I made u and will take care of you.
If there was no God, we would all be accidents- life would have no purpose, meaning or significance. There would be no right or wrong, and no hope beyond ur brief yrs here on Earth.
But there IS a God and he made u for a purpose.. ur life has profound meaning!! U are who u are for a reason. U look like u look for a reason. He chose ur parents with his plan in mind.
And "NO" im sure ur past trauma was not easy; know that God wept that it hurt u so bad; But he allowed it to SHAPE ur HEART, So that u would grow into his likeness. When we learn this, we are able to rejoice in our sufferings.. knowing it's shaping us to be who he intended us to BE!
Day #2 thinking
Point to ponder: I am no accident
Verse to remember: "I am your creater. You were in my care even before u were born" Isaiah 44:2
Question to consider: I know that God uniquely created me. What areas of my personality, background, and physical appearance am I struggling to accept?
