Who God Made You to Be & What He Designed You to Do
To say that God thinks highly of you is a colossal understatement. God is our intelligent designer and we each are his masterfully created workmanship.
You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.King David – Psalm 139:13-14
For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.Paul – Ephesians 2:10
God uniquely designed you and God has a unique design for your life.
“If the God who knows all about everything is the Creator of our lives, then surely He knew every circumstance we would ever encounter prior to His creation of us. Knowing all, He implanted into our lives the exact set of His traits and gifts that each of us would need to be His person on this earth and to be a participant in the development of His Kingdom. He had both why and how answers for our lives at the moment He created us and breathed His life force into us.”Tom Paterson, inventor of ATM PIN technology and lead designer of Disney’s Space Mountain
If you want to know God’s design for your life, get to know Jesus. Jesus’ offer is an abundant, purposeful life.
The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.Jesus – John 10:10
The life that you have lived and are meant to live is a gift from God to you.
Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow.James 1:17
Life is a journey of faith.
“Do not be afraid to trust God utterly. As you go down the long corridor you may find that He has preceded you, and locked many doors which you would fain have entered; but be sure that beyond these there is one which He has left unlocked. Open it and enter, and you will find yourself face to face with a bend of the river of opportunity, broader and deeper than anything you had dared to imagine in your sunniest dreams. Launch forth on it; it conducts to the open sea.”F. B. Meyer, 19th century inner city mission worker
