Created With A Purpose

The Lord has designed you to be your own unique creation. He crafted your being exactly how He intended you to be, with a specific purpose and plan in mind. He has inscribed it upon your heart and it lies within your soul. It is intricately woven within your being. If you have not discovered it yet, it is there. God is waiting for you to find it, to take a hold of it, and then to start walking in it. Seek the Lord continually that He may reveal your true purpose and His plan for your life.

The Lord your God has been preparing you for your entire life for this moment, for this time, and place. He has given you a job to do and positioned you right where He wants you. He has given you skills and talents that will make you excel in His plan as He has designed. He has even given you hidden abilities that you probably don’t know you possess. He has been and will continue to mold, craft, and shape you into a useful tool for His incredibly skilled hands. 

Even Jeremiah had talents the Lord gave him that he knew nothing of, and a plan and purpose that he could have never imagined. God has such a plan for you.

The Lord said, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.”

Then I said, “Ah, Lord GOD! Behold, I do not know how to speak, for I am only a youth.” But the LORD said to me,

“Do not say, ‘I am only a youth’; for to all to whom I send you, you shall go, and whatever I command you, you shall speak. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you to deliver you, declares the LORD.” Jeremiah 1:5-8

“Like emery harder than flint have I made your forehead. Fear them not, nor be dismayed at their looks, for they are a rebellious house.” Jeremiah 3:9

It is God who breathes life into man. It is God who made every part of your body. If you can not speak well, He has made you that way. If you are shy around people, He has made you that way as well. 

Whatever it may be that you think is your weakness can become your strength. The Lord can at any moment turn your weakness into His strength, shining forth His power and glory, and working wonderful miracles through the very hindrances you were unable to accomplish without Him. He is in the business of doing remarkable miracles with unremarkable materials.

But Moses said to the LORD, “Oh, my Lord, I am not eloquent, either in the past or since you have spoken to your servant, but I am slow of speech and of tongue.” Then the LORD said to him, “Who has made man’s mouth? Who makes him mute, or deaf, or seeing, or blind? Is it not I, the LORD? Exodus 4:10-11

The Lord has made all things, the earth, sun, moon, stars, galaxies, and everything in them. They are incredible, amazing, and unfathomable! Can He not do great things with you?

All these things my hand has made, and so all these things came to be, declares the LORD. But this is the one to whom I will look: he who is humble and contrite in spirit and trembles at my word. Isaiah 66:2

    I am learning, finally, this to be true! He uses us powerfully through our weakness. I am also learning that where I have been attacked and oppressed in my life is actually where my purpose is! Thank you for your encouraging posts in Him.
