gratitude that He chose me. He chose me. He created me to be born on this day and to live in this time in history. He brought me forth from my mother's womb to fulfill His purpose for my life in the earth - right now!
He had plans! I am His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus, to do good works that He before-ordained that I should walk therein. He created me on purpose for a purpose! He planned for me and decided on who I would become for His glory!
He is thinking about me all the time! His thoughts towards me are good and not evil, to give me a future and a hope and an expected end. His thoughts toward me outnumber the grains of sand and they are GOOD!
"The Lord of hosts has sworn, saying, Surely, as I have thought and planned, so shall it come to pass, and as I have purposed, so shall it stand-- For the Lord of hosts has purposed, and who can annul it? And His hand is stretched out, and who can turn it back?" Isaiah 14:24, 27 (AMP
Guess what? He chose you, thought of you, made plans for you, and created you on purpose.
In other words, He meant to do it. He made a decision to do it. He thought about it and planned for it. God is a God of purpose. He never does anything or says anything without a reason. And when He does, nothing can change it. He orders all things after the council of His will and upholds all things by the word of His power. As He has "purposed, so shall it stand!" He is an awesome, omnipotent God!
You may be going through a difficult season in your life right now. You've been waiting on God for a long time and your wondering if you missed it. You're wondering why He has allowed one set-back after another, and the disappointment and frustration has you emotionally drained. Or perhaps you've made some mistakes and you think you've blown it. These are all lies of the enemy. It's not so much about you, as it is about His purpose. Cast down every imagination and high thing that exalts itself above the knowledge of God. Do not cast away your confidence in God; it has great recompense of reward!
You were born on purpose for a purpose. Discover what your purpose is and make a decision to live it; chose to live it. Live like you were meant to live. Do it like you mean it! On purpose!
Way Makers live on purpose!
