Love you all, praying for you.
You gotta know something. God makes no mistakes. Not a single thing about you was a mistake, not your name – that’s on purpose, not the day you were born, the length of your days, the generation you were born into, the country you live in, in the middle of this time in history, even how you were formed in your mother’s womb, what you look like, your gifts, your talents, your interests, your abilities. Not a single thing about you was a mistake. Of absolute certainty – you were born for such a time as this. Acts 17:26 - From one man He made every nation of men, to inhabit the whole earth; and He determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. He did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him though he is not far from each one of us. For in him we live and move and have our being. Psalms 139:13-14 - “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well… 16 your eyes saw my unformed body, all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious are your thoughts toward me, O God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them they would outnumber the grains of sand.” Not only are you created by God, you are loved by God, and you were created perfectly in every way for such a time as this! Praise God. Have you ever felt like you’re not worth very much, other people are so much more beautiful, more talented, more successful… But You don’t determine your worth! God does! Other people, the culture you live in doesn’t determine your worth or your success or your significance - God does! And His perspective in the end – will be overwhelmingly accurate, the other measures are just a façade. If you are comparing yourself or measuring yourself by those around you – or those on social media, or what’s respected in this culture - Stop! That’s not what God wants you to do. He has created you beautifully for such a time as this. He’s got you hidden now, but He will reveal you in His perfect time. He said He will fulfill the purpose for which He created you. What other purpose or pursuit could ever make you happy or fulfilled? It can’t! He’s created you on purpose for a reason, and you will only find your fulfillment in that. Psalms 138:8 - The LORD will fulfill his purpose for me; your steadfast love, O LORD, endures forever. I would encourage you – don’t look at others around you – you are a work in progress, in preparation, under construction – you’re still on the potter’s wheel. Give God a chance to fulfill what He is preparing you for! And what He’s preparing for you! Do you trust Him? The only thing that could stop you from everything God has for you – is disobedience, that’s it. Not knowing what He wants you to do today, because you didn’t ask him… Getting distracted, putting your focus on other things. Fix your eyes on Him! Trust Him when He says you are fearfully and wonderfully made. Don’t focus on other people, focus on your preparation for all that He has for you. And it doesn’t matter how young or old you are. PiVAT before dinner – obey what He has for you today – it’s preparing you for what He is bringing you to! Get there – don’t be distracted by others. PRISM – will transform your mind, and your heart, your eyes, how you see things, and your words, what comes out of your mouth. It keeps you close to your Heavenly Father who formed you and wonderfully made you. Seek His will for you each day – He’ll tell you, walk in it! Seek His Wisdom daily. Don’t forget the Insight section of PRISM – the Proverbs chapter for today. Plant wisdom daily, and it will grow exponentially –To fulfill the purpose God has for you – requires wisdom for you to walk in it. Proverbs - the book of wisdom will sow seeds that grow and produce more seeds. It won’t just make you an apple tree, it will make wisdom an orchard from you. One more thing, have you ever looked at your wisdom chapter? What day is your birthday? There are no accidents with God, what life wisdom does God have for you in your Wisdom Chapter? The Proverbs Chapter for the day you were born? If you ask Him, God will reveal wisdom for your life.
Praying for you – that you would rejoice today that He is fulfilling His purpose for you, with every little step of obedience you take. You are tailor-made for what only you can fulfill. It’s what you were made for! It’s what will bring you fulfillment! And great joy! It just requires humility and obedience, and setting your eyes on Him! not people or things around you. God will fulfill your purpose - You just trust and obey – He will bring it to pass. Praying that you will rejoice in His goodness – that you will praise Him for not just who He is, but also what He made you to be, and what He is finishing in you! He will bless others through you, that’s part of what purpose does – you don’t compare yourself with others, you ask God how to love and serve them. It’s where joy awaits you. You will do things that only you can do. You will find your purpose in Him! Just obey today (PIVAT before dinner) and learn to think like He thinks (PRISM throughout the day). And help someone else do the same thing! Overcome with your testimony every day on your Daily Call! And just so you know… You will love His purpose for you! He wired you for it! Choose to rejoice in the preparation! He loves you! He has good for you! You can trust Him.
Love you all,
