It’s a beautiful thing when you realize that you’re not a biological accident. You’re not here on this planet simply because a man and a woman slept together.
When you see things from God’s perspective, you’d realize that a man and a woman had to sleep together because you had to be here.
You’re here for a special purpose. You’re specially and specifically designed by God to fulfill a purpose.
In Jeremiah 1:4-5, we see that there were a lot of things that happened before you were conceived.
There was a plan and it was deliberate. The knowledge of that should get you excited about your life when you realise that you’re not God’s after thought.
Perhaps you were told that you were mistakenly conceived but when you come to the point where you realise that the highest intelligence planned your life, that’s a beautiful thing.
Psalm 139:13-16 tells us that we are God’s special masterpiece deliberately crafted for a reason.
Nothing about you takes God by surprise because he knows the end.
Many of us don’t know how special we are and how specially equipped we are to fulfill our purposes on this planet.
David in Psalms 8:3-8 realised that in the glory of all of God’s creations, the most valuable asset out of all is man.
There’s nothing God created that is as sophisticated as us. Ephesians 2:10 shows us that we were not designed to live an ordinary life.
We were not designed to be a victim of circumstances. God put you here for mastery.
How do we get to know how special we are? One recommendation is that we should be saved from the nature of sin.
In Ephesians 2:8-9 we see that God saved us by His grace.
We can’t take credit for it as it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done so none of us can boast about it. Salvation delivered us from the nature of sin.
When Adam sinned, all of us sinned. Adam means mankind and his sinned automatically passed on everyone.
If he was not given the freedom to choose what he would do, then he wasn’t created in the image of God.
This is why God had to take on the nature of man, die on the cross because the wages of sin is death and go back to heaven thus making provision for everybody to be forgiven their sins and to have the nature of God back
Your destiny is not about you. Your life is not about you. Your life is too small to be the purpose of your life.
Before helping other people you need to look at yourself.
Who are you? What capacities has God wired into you.
