…Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. (Psalm 139:16 NIV)
God has designed you with particular abilities and personality because He has a special purpose for creating you the way you are. He’s allowed everything that has come into your life for a reason: To shape and prepare you to be who and what you are today, with the experiences you have gone through. The good and the bad. All this so that He can shape you into who you are becoming, that you may fulfill your God given purpose.
God has things for you to do that only you can do. No one else can do them precisely the way you can. You are unique and special. How do I know this? Because the Lord of Creation has a plan for every one of His children. The fact that you are reading these words, indicates you are being called by God in preparation for Him to use you, to fulfill His glorious plan. All it takes is our constant submission to Him.
Before God made the universe, He had a great idea when He thought of creating you. He waited until the time was right to give you birth. You are an original design. There has never been, nor will there ever be, another you. Each one of us is special and each has a unique role to play.
In Christ we discover our true identity and potential. It is there inside you and God is ready to bring it forth. Some would call it fate, and others destiny, yet it is God’s plan. And His plan for each of us is found through a close relationship with the Lord.
God also has a special place and function for you within the church, which is the body of Christ. You are about to give birth to something wonderful, something God has specifically designed you to do.
You are an extraordinary blessing! Allow God to bring forth His design for you.
Suggested prayer: “Heavenly Father, thank you for saving me through my faith in your Son Jesus. Lead me to become all that you’ve created me to be. You see the future and you know what is coming—prepare me for it, as I continuously surrender my life to you. Use me for your glory and purposes. I belong to you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
