God Made You to Be You
By Rick Warren

“You made my whole being; you formed me in my mother’s body.” Psalm 139:13 (NCV)

God planned every single day of your life. Before you took your first breath, God knew everything that would ever happen to you. 

Long before you were conceived by your biological parents, you were conceived in the mind of God. It is not by fate, chance, luck, or coincidence that you are breathing at this very moment.

You’re alive right now because God wants you—with all of your strengths and weaknesses—to be alive. 

Whether your parents were good, bad, or indifferent, God used them. They had the exact DNA needed to create you. God wanted you alive. From the beginning of time, God has had a plan for your life—and he has a purpose he wants you to complete.

And God made you to be you.

The Bible says, “You made my whole being; you formed me in my mother’s body. I praise you because you made me in an amazing and wonderful way . . . You saw my bones being formed as I took shape in my mother’s body. When I was put together there, you saw my body as it was formed. All the days planned for me were written in your book before I was one day old” (Psalm 139:13-16 NCV). 

God created you so he could love you—for eternity. Your parents may have contributed your DNA, but God made you. You were not just another baby born. God personally planned for your birth. 

You are God’s masterpiece. He made you so he could love you and so you could fulfill his purposes in this world. At different seasons of life, you may struggle to see what that purpose is. But you never have to doubt that it’s there. Before you were born, God gave you a purpose!
